“Good stay - everything good except $26 parking/night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Guess its not so near downtown - but has amazing public transport connectivity. I didn't realize the parking fee (and driving in Portland is no fun either) so gave up the car the next morning and got myself a weekly pass - worked out fine. The breakfast is great - partly the reason why I prefer Residence Inn. I happily skipped the conference breakfast for the hotel spread. There are evening specials as well - which I couldn't enjoy. However, I was told, it was as good. I5 goes by a almost touching flyover - however you hardly feel any noise/vibration.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. They allowed me a early checkin - almost at 11AM - which was very nice.

Room Tip: This hotel has no views.

I stayed at this hotel for a conference and it worked out great. The room was comfy and modern. The place had a good breakfast and happy hour snacks. I didn't get to spend too much time enjoying the amenities but I'm sure they were good. The hotel was a little over 2 miles away from the convention center and I used this opportunity to walk there and back every day. The river made the stroll very nice. There is public transportation near by as well. There are some good places to eat in the Esplanade. Overall a good location for business and pleasure.

We booked this hotel through Priceline and so initially didn't know which hotel we'd be staying at for our weekend getaway to Portland. This hotel, for the price, was fantastic. The rooms were very large with a super comfy bed, very clean and relatively modern looking. The kitchenette aspect is a great feature too, especially for longer trips. They'll even pick up groceries for you and leave them in your fridge if you request it!

The free breakfast blew our mind. There was a huge selection of cereals, oatmeal, sausages, waffles, pancakes, toast and tons of juices/coffees. From our experience, this totally blows a standard continental breakfast out of the water!

The location was decent to downtown portland, just a 5-7 minute street car ride, or about a half an hour walk (which you can do most of on the river, which is nice when you're a tourist).

Would definitely stay here again!

This was my first time at a Residence Inn. Very impressed. The room I had was an apartment, very large and with all the amenities. Location is right on the river and within walking distance from several nice restaurants. The trolley stop is a half block away. Staff were great.

This place has it all whether you have a family member having surgery at OSHU or just visiting. Close to the waterfront, great restaurants, the trolley/ IMet system. Clean, comfortable beds, large kitchen suites. Head down to the farmers market for unusual finds. It is spendy, but for long stays, it feels like home. Nice full breakfasts also each morning.

The hotel was clean, the staff helpful and friendly, the breakfasts were hot and had plenty to choose from. The location was close to the tram and the streetcar as well as the Esplanade. My only complaint was minimal but the TV was mounted on a table that didn't face the bed OR the couch and couldn't be swiveled. So every night my husband would physically move the TV stand just do he could watch TV. Poor planning to have the TV mounted do that it faced the refrigerator!

I recently stayed here with a co-worker in a studio unit that offered a king bed and a double sofa sleeper with a small kitchen area. Upon checking in we were advised that our stay included the normal complimentary breakfast AND a dinner buffet from 6-7:30pm. I did not get to see what exactly was offered with the dinner as we had an office function to attend. The breakfast was as usual a great way to start the day.
The location is fantastic with many restaurant and bar optons all with in walking distance. It really is well suited for the business traveler and even though it is located right under the Marquam Bridge the noise level was nothing to worry about.
Thank you Residence Inn for another great stay!
