We ended up choosing Mark Spencer after our first hotel option started to look pretty unsuitable for us (thanks to other reviews). This was the only spot that wasn't outrageously expensive or hipstery and still looked swanky. Great and helpful front staff, too. The free coffee, continental breakfast, and afternoon wine (!) are strong points that will keep me coming back next time I'm in town.
We stayed here for only 4 nights, but it was a great home away home. Comfortable beds, quiet rooms, kitchenette (which we ended up not using)... but the highlight were the awesome sheets. Unexpectedly smooth and comfortable. Kept us cool and dry during the hottest time of the year! It was nice to relax and recharge after our daily escapades.
The hotel is conveniently located in a centrsal spot downtown. Across the street from Kenny & Zuke's. Close to Powell's. Close to Deschutes. Close to the streetcars, MAX train, farmer's market, shops, galleries... etc, etc, etc. Just ditch the attitude and street cred you'd want to get from Ace or Jupiter... come here instead.
