When you first walk in to this hotel, it looks gorgeous. However, looks can be a bit deceiving. We were checked in to a room that should not have been rented out at that time. The room had just had preventative maintenance done and the sofa in the sitting room was still damp. I pulled back the sheets on both beds only to discover hair. The front desk clerk I spoke to could only apologize and said there was not much he could do. He did offer to move us, but not after unpacking 3 nights worth of luggage for 3 people. The next morning, I did speak to the hotel manager who took care of everything.
The next evening I happen to pull back the shower curtain only to find hair in there. Was the bath tub ever cleaned? There were also stains on the carpet near the sink.
The hot foods on the breakfast, eggs, sausage, and biscuits, tasted horrible.
Needless to say, I was not impressed. I will be finding another place to stay the next time we visit Portland.
