The front desk staff were very nice, helpful and professional. The room itself was nice (roomy w/kitchenette) but had a very bad odor (musty?) - really bad. Although on the fringe of the Pearl District I enjoyed the walk to the city center and, also to Powell's Books (just around the corner). The location worked out well for me. I was extremely frustrated with the internet connection. This affected my business trip tremendously. I initially tried the free connection which froze after a few minutes. The front desk suggested that the higher speed ($) connection would be better. Nope. Neither service allowed more than a few minutes of connectivity. Had to go around the corner to a local coffee house to get a little work done. I came very close to seeking out an alternate hotel due to this.
