Two of us traveled over 350 miles to attend an IRS sponsored tax preparation seminar - a potentially deadly boring three days. However, the staff at the Embassy Suites in Tigard made us feel like very welcome guests. From check in to check out, everyone working there was polite, considerate, conscientious and concerned for our comfort. The double bed suite was spacious and well appointed, clean and well maintained. Equipped with a mall refrigerator, sink, microwave and two-pod coffee pot (and none of that "take this and you will pay thru your nose junk inside the fridge!), two TVs - one in sitting area and the other in the bedroom, lots of drawer and hanging space, a hair dryer, ironing board and iron - and very comfortable beds. Internet access is not free, unless you have a Hiltons Honor card - very easy to sign up for. Only issue is they had the heat set to 75 and it took a bit to find the thermostat (hidden behind the door). Not much of a view - we looked into the Target parking lot - but from the 8th floor you could see a panoramic of the mountains and city. This hotel is a short walk from the huge Washington Square shopping center (which we did not visit). The meeting rooms were large with everything needed for convenience (except comfy chairs - but at least they kept us awake!). Included is a full breakfast including omelets made to order. The atrium dining area is decorated with a fountain and lots of greenery, Never had to wait long for an elevator (there are three which look out into the atrium). Did not eat at the on-site Crossroads restaurant, instead choosing to sample some of Portland's delightful restaurants, but heard from others the food was OK, if a bit pricy for what you got. All in all the hotel ambiance made up for the rather yawning seminar.
