Having never been to Portland, we had to depend on reviews online from previous Portland hotel guests. But, I really couldn't be any happier with our choice for the price. We stayed five nights in an Executive Guest room, and we upgraded from the Deluxe Guest room based on another patron's TripAdvisor review. The only thing that disappointed me about the "corner room" the previous reviewer had recommended was that the view from the corner window in this 3rd floor room looked out directly onto the HVAC equipment. It almost didn't even count as a view. However, the main view from the much larger windows looked out onto Director's Park, and that was great. I don't regret choosing the Executive Guest room, though, because of the spacious bathroom. The spa-like jetted tub and large, glass-enclosed separate shower made this one of the best hotel baths I've ever had. It's definitely worth the upgrade. The front desk, valet, and concierge staff were always cheerful and helpful; they also weren't obnoxious about demanding tips for information about how to take the train from the hotel to the airport, as our concierge in San Francisco had been. The rooms were very quiet and comfortable. I only had one minor problem (with a blow dryer), and the staff was very prompt to address it. PARKING TIP: If you plan to use valet to park your car, the hotel charges $29 daily, which is comparable to other hotels downtown. However, the valet staff utilizes the public garage less than one block away for this purpose. If you take your car directly to the parking garage, they charge $15 for overnight use. Of course, there's no "in-and-out" privileges if you do it yourself, but public transportation in Portland is so very efficient that it worked no hardship on us and saved us half the money. I think the garage was called "South Park," and it's between 9th and 10th on Taylor St. We'd definitely stay here again.
