Friendly, super helpful front desk personnel. Lovely rooms with kitchenettes, so you can economize a bit, which we did by eating dinners "in" and cooking tofu scrambles ourselves. Complimentary breakfast items, such as fruit, muffins, cold cereal, juices in the morning, with coffee machine you can program to make lattes and mochas if so desired - regular (which was roasted and fabulous) coffee from the machine was complimentary (free). Lovely afternoon tea in the inner lobby every day. Helpful staff that directed us to vegetarian restaurants in the area, pulled out maps to assist us in getting on the Portland Streetcar with ease, and figuring out which bus to take to the International Portland Rose Garden. Powells largest independent bookstore, kitty-corner to this place. Within walking distance of the Pearl District, close to the center of downtown, close to Whole Foods, Jake's Crab Shack, Starbucks, Blossoming Lotus (one of the total vegan eating places which shares their building with Yoga Pearl, yoga/massage place). Spent a week at Mark Spencer. This is the place to stay - in the center of everything going on - with excellent service - and personnel. Highly, highly recommended. 10 billion stars.
