We stayed at the Residence Inn in April 2012 and couldn't have been more pleased with the two-room suite we booked. We were a three generation group of four with two active boys and the two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room and nicely sized kitchen were fantastic for us! We were in Portland for a wedding shower. The dining table was perfect for wrapping gifts, and the living room was a hit with the boys who could lounge and read or watch TV in between events. The suite was beautifully decorated and all the facilities at the hotel were well maintained. The pool area was big enough and also a hit. The free breakfast was one of the most expansive I've seen at this type of hotel and was a great perk...not having to find and pay for a diner each day was appreciated. My only nit was that the iPod alarm in one of the rooms did not work.
The hotel is on the edge of town, but completely in walking distance. One night we did take a cab back, due to the hour, and it cost $3. A fabulous bakery, Two Fat Cats, is within a block and worth a jog so you don't feel too guilty about indulging.
If I go back to Portland...will definitely return!
