We stayed the night while in town for only one night and it was a very busy weekend. It was visiting day for Camps in the area. Therefore, the hotel itself was packed and way above typical occupancy.
The rooms were nice, pretty and obviously recently redone.
Staff at the front desk was welcoming as well.
The only problem was the valet. It was suggested it was better to valet but we were warned there could be a 20 minute wait for our car the next morning because so many people were leaving at the same time.
We called early and were told it was a 40 minute wait. After 1 hour and 15 minutes, we finally asked to get our car ourselves however, it came just at that time. The management cannot control how many people may have cars and how long it takes to get them out of valet (the valet staff were working as quickly as they could.) However, management should have planned better and either had many more valets or encouraged us to self park instead of encouraging us to valet.
If you are visiting Portland and want a nice hotel, I would recommend this property as I do believe the valet situation was unusual and only because of the date.
Lastly, there are good restaurants in walking distance as well as places to grab a quick breakfast if you don't want to eat at the hotel.
