Convienent location on the streetcar line. We kept our car parked the whole stay and were able to get around via streetcar/MAX connections. The staff were nice, although the hotel was a little stuffy/dark....it's historic and could use central air conditioning as it was very warm during our visit and the window AC units were noisy. We had a large, simply decorated suite with a nice kitchen but no in-room coffee provided. A coffee maker was provided but no actual coffee....strange. Although you could go down the elevator to get a cup of complimentary coffee in the lobby. A great restaurant about 2 blocks away is Henry's (the old henry Weinhart brewery bldg).....awesome food and extensive beer/wine list. The hotel breakfast downstairs was simple but adequate....a busy scene with lots of international travelers which makes for fun conversation to start the day. We got a great stay/park rate through the Portland Visitors web site.

Saw the comments about this being an older hotel and while there were a few things I would change, I had a great stay for two nites in July. $111 on Travelocity which was pretty reasonable. The location is perfect, 1 min to Powell's, 5 min walk to most restaurants in the Pearl District, 20 min or so to NW 21st which was a cool neighborhood, close to buses. I too was surprised that there were no signs stating you should put your towells on the floor if you needed new ones. The water pressure could have been a little better, but it wasn't bad and while I just used the fridge for some water and leftover baked goods, that kitchen area could come in handy. The computer was a little slow but served the purpose for a quick check on email, front desk was nice, appreciated the OJ in the morning. I'd stay again.

We've stayed here several times over the last few years. The location is excellent. It is right in the heart of the Pearl District and within a block or two of Powells. The outside of the hotel looks like a typical older city building. The inside of the lobby is very nice and the staff is excellent. They're all dressed in suites/skirts/etc. They are very helpful when it comes to getting directions, taxis, reservations, ideas on where to go and what to do. The rooms are pretty average. They look a little old and could use some updating, but nothing that isn't acceptable (see my review of the Queen Anne in Seattle). The stairwells have very small risers so they can be tricky to go up and down, but if you're not an elevator fan, this is the way to go. The breakfast is pretty average for a continental breakfast. But since you get a kitchenette in your room, it works great. Bring eggs and bacon or something similar and you'll have a complete breakfast. The rooms have full sized fridges so you can stock up on those good Oregon/Portland micro-brews. You have silverware, plates, a few pots and pans, dish soap and a sponge, and paper towels provided for you. You also have a full sized oven and stove top. With a pretty large TV, you have all the comforts of home. The parking isn't too bad. I drive a medium sized truck and so I park in the surface lot. They have underground parking as well, but I haven't ventured down there. The surface lot isn't huge, but big enough to get a medium sized truck into. You wouldn't want to be coming and going from it though. Its just too tricky to get in and out of. But if you're coming to walk around town, you're set. Just park it and leave it. The only downside to this place is that they are still insisting on charging for their Wi-Fi. The city now has free Wi-Fi and the Mark Spencer is within the coverage area. We haven't tried the freebie yet, but I would assume it is pretty well used up (e.g. probably not enough addresses available for everyone in the coverage area). We will certainly be back here and as long as things don't take a turn for the worse, we'll always stay here.

This centrally-located, downtown Portland hotel has comfortable suites and rooms with kitchens - a good place to park if you need to spend at least a week waiting for that interview, your new apartment/condo/house/etc.. They offer a nice breakfast that's included in the room rate.
However, we were dismayed by the internet access charge (wifi @ $8/24hrs, $35/week)
Also, our 'green' request to not refresh towels and bed linens unless we placed them on the floor was honored only for one day!

Friendly staff, continental breakfast of fruit and bagels and cereals. Nice location to Pearl District and free Internet. Rooms are older and basic but clean. Enclosed parking structure which cost $16 a night which seemed high to me. Overall nice time.
