We have stayed here many times. Quality is consistently good. Excellent breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, very pet friendly. Probably the best value is the location. They are right on the streetcar line, which takes you easily to University, shopping district, library, art museum, etc - all for free! (hotel and attractions are within Portland's very progressive "fareless square" for mass transit).

This hotel is highly recommended. Not the cheapest option downtown, but by far the best value. Check out the Portland Visitor's Association site (www.pova.org) for great deals on this hotel.

We stayed here for a gymnastics meet. When I checked in, they handed me a map with directions to the site of the meet. The room was large and spotless, the breakfast was great and the staff was very helpful. The bed was just a little uncomfortable but the children slept like logs in their bed. There is a streetcar stop right outside the hotel and it's free within the downtown area so getting around Portland was easy.

This is a newer Residence Inn and well designed. The rooms are oversized and the bed is incredibly comfortable. The complimentary breakfast buffet was really good and its within walking distance of most of downtown Portland. A great place to stay and enjoy the city !

We got the king suite w/sofa bed. The room was equipped with a full sized frige, microwave, & two burner electric range. We were on the 7th floor. The hotel was pretty quiet. They have a wonderful breakfast buffet in the morning. There is a streecar stop right at the hotel and if you're going to venture out in downtown Portland, there is no cost to ride. We caught the train from the airport then the streetcar over to the hotel. The staff was exceptionally friendly. We arrived at noon and asked could we check in early and they let us.

Spent two nights here in October. Very nice room. Had a good deal on a suite. It was almost like a small apartment with a full kitchen, including all the dishes you would need. Pool and spa area was spacious and super clean. Gym was very modern and up to date. The breakfast served in the morning is complete with eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, cereal, waffles, biscuits and gravy. Hotel is close enough to walk to a couple of fish houses down in the RiverPlace. The streets are tricky in the area and it's easy to miss. Hotel is basically under I-5. Parking is self-parking in an on-site garage, unfortunately it costs an extra $21 per day. I've stayed at the waterfront Marriott in Portland before and I preferred this hotel.

My girlfriend and I came down to spend a long weekend in Portland from the 22nd of August to the 24th. There was a huge evangelical fair of some sort in town that weekend, so ALL hotels and B&Bs were booked up.

So went with this one. And I am so glad I did. Checking-in was hassle free, and took about 2 minutes. The room was standard 1 bedroom king size, but was fantastic. Balcony, a fridge to store our liquor and leftovers, a couch, and a tv. We payed the $20 for parking, which was right beside the side entrance, and very convenient. You could also park a few blocks away, there are a couple of private parking garages. The hotel is about a 2 minute drive to downtown, and our cab fair to go out on Saturday night was less than $6 each way. The only problem we encountered is that our card didn't work when we returned early Sunday morning from the bars, but we got buzzed in and the problem was taken care of quickly.

Location was not in the heart of downtown, but pretty close. The view was great, and the place was not noisy at all. Many reviews said that the location was terrible because of an empty lot and the I5 overpass that's 2 blocks away, but we barely noticed those as it was nice and quite with no construction. The tram is right outside the front doors, so if you're willing to ditch the car, you're in luck.

Breakfast was AMAZING, they had everything from fresh fruit and yogurt to homemade waffles and pancakes. Definitely worth getting up for. Overall great hotel, terrific service, would come back next time I'm in Portland.
