Like others have written, this is not downtown Portland but the proximity to the MAX system (one short block) makes it an ideal location if you are looking for nice, clean, reasonably-priced accomodations (compared to downtown Portland). Portland's MAX and streetcar system are awesome for getting around all over town. Took MAX from the airport direct to the stop by the hotel -- no need for taxi or rental car. We stayed at the hotel for 3 night and had 4 days in town -- because the MAX and streetcar system is so good we ended up renting a car only for the one day we took a day trip to make the Columbia River Gorge and Mt Hood loop. What we saved on the hotel more than paid for that day's car rental and gas. The room was clean and larger than most, the beds comfy, the breakfast room had a decent assortment, and all three of the front desk people we dealt with were helpful and informative. They had a fat binder of information and directions for getting to places all over town and if they didn't know it were happy to find it on-line and Mapquest it out to let us know the best way to get there by car or public transit. While it is safe to walk from the MAX line at night to the hotel, the location borders on an area where there isn't really anything to do and would not be a place to walk safely... BUT, had no qualms about the location of the hotel itself, tho. And there is a great coffee shop across the street called Elmers if you just want a quick bite -- clean, nice people and great food. Would definitely recommend this hotel it you are looking to save a few dollars on the hotel that can be put towards doing fun things and you don't mind using the MAX and lightrail system.
