Stayed here on Halloween night to watch a basketball game @ Rose Garden Arena. The location is good, the walk to the arena itself does not take long at all.. less than 10mins! There are many places to eat/shop near the hotel but the downtown side is across the bridge/river (which is still walkable) & takes less than 5mins to drive. The outlets are about 20mins away. We stayed here because it was on the same side as the arena & ended up being quite close.
The staff at the hotel was great.. We were given an upgrade from a Lobu room to Metro room at no charge. There was a 20% off promo on the website & our parking fee ($9- quite cheap for a hotel!) was also waived.. so we got a very, VERY good deal. They even let us check-in early at noon instead of 4pm. Our room was nicely decorated in the yellow bamboo style & we definitely enjoyed the free wiFi. It was clean & only the bathroom showed signs of wear & tear but was still spotless. The chalkboard doors were a fun touch : ) the size of the room was perfect for us, so I'm glad we were offered the bigger room. The bed & sheets were comfy & the seating area was convenient.
The Doug Fir lounge was delicious; went there for Happy Hour & had breakfast the next day. I think this is one of the nicer lounges on that side of the neighbourhood so it was great that it was close by. We were on the "chill" side of the hotel & we couldn't hear the restaurant at all.. Just the people walking past our room (the walls are quite thin so it was pretty loud) but it didn't bother us. If you stay here you should already be aware of the noise =P it was Halloween night so we expected it as well.
I'd definitely stay here again for my next trip to Portland : ) thanks for the great service!
