Just a few steps from the shops and restaurants in Old Town and the Pearl District, the Mark Spencer is a great choice. We had booked this trip several months in advance, and though the hotel was fully booked, they upgraded our room to a suite. I can't provide information on their rooms, but the bedroom in the suite was small, with about twelve inches of space between the end of the king bed and a dresser. That made getting around a bit difficult, but since we had a suite, what little time we were in our room was in the living area, so it wasn't too bad. Bedding and linens were topnotch. Their website said there was a coffee maker in the room (very important to us), but in the suite, which had a kitchenette, there was no coffee provided, so we had to go downstairs to fetch it. However, they did have a nice espresso machine there, which actually made good coffee, espresso, and latte. I can't say if just a room would have had coffee provided. We also had a bathtub, which made my wife very happy. There was no safe in our room. Breakfast was included, and was decent. Wifi was free, and worked fine, but was slow. Questions we had of the staff were answered professionally and accurately, and everyone in the hotel seemed tuned in to making sure we were comfortable and happy. We would definitely stay here again.
