Just finished up a 4 night 5 day stay in Portland for a training at Studio Nia downtown.
The staff was friendly and helpful (LOVED Ed the Bell Man!!). My room was spacious and clean with really comfortable beds, and it's located a short walk from everything I needed. Starbucks literally on the corner. Flying Elephant Deli with great sandwiches, salads, pastas, soups, cookies and KOMBUCHA is right across Governors Courtyard!! Short walk or free Trolley Ride to Whole Foods, Powell's Books, Pioneer Center and a load of retail stores from Mountain Hardware to Nordstroms. It's 1 block from the MAX light right stop which was about 40 mins from the airport PDX for under $3.00!! And a cab ride back to the airport was $37 plus tip. Check out Paramount Hotel!!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are larger with great views.

We were staying in downtown Portland for a couple of nights and we wanted a place that was convenient to access various areas of downtown. We loved the location which was just blocks from both the streetcar and MAX light rail. It was just a block away from the South Park Blocks where you can take a great walk. It is also close to Pioneer Courthouse Square and lots of shopping.

The service was great. We were always greeted in a friendly manner. The valets staff was speedy with gettng our car when we needed it.

The room was really nice. We had a view of the new Director Park so we could see the goings on in the city. The hotel room was quiet and we were able to sleep in thanks to the nice dark curtains.

We will return again.

Very spacious room and bathroom. The jacuzzi in the bathroom was great after long days of walking around town and hiking in the hills. The bed was very comfortable for sleeping and lounging. The chaise chair was also a nice touch. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times. All together a wonderful hotel and very good value.

This was the last stop on a college tour with our daughter for spring break. After staying in several Holiday Inn Expresses over the previous week this was a welcome change.

The hotel is centrally located and everything is within walking distance or a short public transportation ride away. Starbucks is across the street and there are plenty of nearby restaurants, movie theaters, shops and a mall.

The beds were comfy and my daughter and I really enjoyed the bath products. It was especially nice to have dispensers in the shower for the shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

I agree with the previous posters about getting the parking package. In fact, a few days prior to leaving on our trip I read about the parking package and changed our reservation. For only $1 more than our previous rate, we ended up with parking for only $1 instead of $29. The valet service was great and I had trouble finding a break in the traffic to get out of the passenger side of the car and the valet came around and made sure I could exit the car safely. We were also told to expect to wait 15 minutes to retrieve the car but we called upon exiting our room and by the time we got down to the lobby our car was waiting for us.

The jetted bathtub was large and amazing to soak in. For the price of this hotel and comparing it to lucia, hotel 50 and the monaco, this one was the cheapest. The bed, carpet, windows and feel of the room was overall cheap especially for the price, I would rather stay at one of the other mentioned hotels. I had the corner window king room and it was decent size room with a great view of the park. The bed slept three comfortably.

Room Tip: dont waste your money on the upgraded rooms, even though it isn't much price difference, didn...

Beautifully updated hotel in a very central location. The streetcar to the Pearl district and the Max light rail are just a short walk away. Very attentive staff, room was quiet and spacious, and the AAA rate was a great deal. Valet parking is pricey at $29 but there are garages a block or so away for less if you won't be taking your car in and out - and if you're exploring downtown Portland, you won't need to.
