“LOVE LOVE LOVE this property!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

This place is the best kept secret in Portland. Was disappointed at first when I saw it was located by Lloyd Center but when we got there, was pleasantly surprised at how well appointed it was in a great area! Can't say enough:
Rooms - roomy, clean, beautiful, delightful, etc, etc, etc.
Staff - friendly, nice, charming
Breakfast - THE BEST
Happy Hour - wine and beer and munchies - WOW!
Parking - free and ample
Pool - didn't use but seemed nice.
Internet - great!

Room Tip: All rooms are well appointed. Guess near the parking lot would be better.

Green Features: All great! Towels can be used again. Don't know why they keep saying I didn't fill out this box but I am adding just to get this done!

We reserved a 2 bed bi-level loft and was surprised to find the king bed in the open loft and then the queen bed in the private bedroom. We the parents, would normally want the King bed in the private room...apparently all the bi-level lofts are set up this way. Disappointing to us considering the room rate was on the higher side for a Residence Inn. I will not stay again knowing this.

Our hotel has great access to the Lloyd District and downtown Portland. Our 2 bedroom bi-level lofts were built to accomodate larger families that needed to stay for a longer amount of time. I am very sorry our room set up was a surprise to you and it affected your stay negatively. Our guest satisfaction is very important to us and unfortunately we were not able to change the room set up to meet your needs. I hope you give our location another chance.

The room was very nice - beautiful design, comfortable beds, good kitchen with stove, dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave. The complimentary breakfast had a good selection, but not enough food and space for large crowd of hotel guests - very messy.
The location of the hotel was not the best for us. It was far from all nice Portland areas. It would work for people who are there for a happening at the convention center, but not for tourists. We did not feel safe leaving our car at the hotel parking lot - the window of the car parked next to ours was shattered.

We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the lay out of our suites! We are a generation one property that has more of an apartment feel, which can be an advantage for leisure and business travelers alike. As for the breakfast space, we will make the meeting rooms upstairs in the gatehouse available to alleviate the congestion that might occur in the buffet area, especially when we are at a higher occupancy. Thanks for giving us your feedback, and we hope to see you again when you are in the Portland area!

We stayed in a ground floor studio room. It was comfortable with a full kitchen and a fireplace. The hotel is very convenient to the Lloyd Center mall, MAX line, restaurants, and interstates. The free parking is a great plus since hotels that are more downtown charge up to $39/day for parking. The included breakfast was extensive - waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal, fruit, bagels, muffins, etc. And the brewed coffee in the restaurant was strong and good. The staff was friendly and always ready to help.

Room Tip: Since there are no elevators, chose a lower floor if you don't want to carry suitcases up flight...

While the stay was generally OK, I think this Residence Inn was below the standard of others I have seen. The rooms could use a renovation, and our Queen Suite did not feature a fireplace as the description on booking.com mentioned. We arrived late in the evening, and the room did not seem prepared for four people, even thought the reservation said we would be four - there were only three sets of towels, for example. Staff was helpful, though - when we called to ask for additional towels, they were sent to our room even though it was past 10:30 pm.

We appreciated the free and convenient parking, and the hassle-free wi-fi.

Thank you for choosing the Residence Inn Lloyd Center for your lodging needs! I do apologize that there was not a fireplace in your suite. I'm afraid you may have been checked into a handicap queen studio which is the only queen studios that do not have a fireplace on our property. I'm glad to here the staff was friendly and helpful, but i apologize that we didn't catch your extra towel requests on the arrivals report. We will use this as a training example to ensure that each guest is provided what is requested once the room is booked. I hope this does not deter you from choosing our property again in the future. Any further assistance we can be please don't hesitate to let us know. Thank you!

We took our 3 month old on his first flight/vacation to Portland on June 7-10. Since this was our first trip, I wanted to make sure it had certain amenities I thought would make our trip go smoother such as having a kitchen, separate room for my MIL, and free parking/Wi-Fi/breakfast. The Residence Inn was a great fit for us. The rooms were clean and neat, location was great (easy to drive downtown or out of the city, close to a Safeway for groceries, and walking distance to restaurants). I only have two "complaints" (lessons learned):

1) We had booked a 2 bedroom/2 bath loft which was located on the 3rd (top) floor. This was only accessible via stairs (no elevator) which made it harder for my 75 year old MIL to come and go easily. Also we normally travel very light (carry ons only), but with a kid, we had to break out our large (30") suitcase. It was a pain to carry the suitcase up and down the stairs - not impossible, just annoying.

2) Inside the loft, my husband, baby and I took the king bed is located upstairs and we gave my MIL the queen bedroom downstairs (so she wouldn't have to walk up more stairs). On our second night, I was feeding the baby in the living room downstairs and my husband came down the stairs to help me burp the baby. Well in his sleepy state, he missed the last two steps and fell down the stairs. We had the stairway light on, but because the striped carpet on the stairs blends with the carpet at the foot of the steps, it's very hard to tell where the stairway ends. Plus on the left side of the stairwell, the wall ends before the last two steps so you think you've reached the end of the stairs because it opens up into the living room but you still have two steps to go. Luckily when he fell, he landed on the kitchen floor and did not hit the kitchen table at the bottom of the stairs. Even luckier was that it didn't happen while any of us were holding the baby! When we returned home, he had X-rays done and it turned out to be a very bad sprain and no broken bones. To add to this 2am drama, the phones in the living room and the queen bedroom were not working so I had to rush upstairs to make a call to the front desk to see if they had any ice.

So while I think this is a great place to stay while visiting Portland, I can't recommend the 2 bedroom loft for families with young children or anyone that has difficulty walking up stairs.

p.s. I emailed the manager Mr. Armijo on June 15 to inform him of what happened and offer some suggestions on how to improve the safety of the stairs but never heard back.

We were visiting our son and chose this hotel as its location was closer to his apartment than most hotels we could find. Our room was on the second floor right below a larger, 2 bedroom suite. As I later learned, that room was packed with guests. And those guests were constantly on the move. They were walking about and going up and down the stairs till the wee hours of the morning. I am a light sleeper and was not able to get to sleep till 3 AM. Hoping that the guests would leave, I endured another night until I spoke to the desk personnel. They were extremely sorry for the problem and immediately gave us another room on the 3rd (top) floor, an upgrade to a larger suite.

The hotel is by a busy expressway and the hum from the traffic can be heard in the rooms. Sound proofing was obviously not a top priority when they built this hotel.

The rooms themselves were fine. We had lots of room, especially with the upgrade. The morning breakfasts were at times very crowded as there wasn't a large space devoted to them.
Their quality was adequate.

The location is a good one, within walking distance of some nice neighborhoods and parks, and close to public transportation, including light rail.

The hotel staff was very friendly and considerate.

If you decide to try this hotel, I recommend a top floor room.

Room Tip: Top floor.

Thank you for your feed back after your stay with us. We are a generation one hotel and it was built with exterior entrances for accessability. I am very sorry to hear about the noise from the room above you. I wish that we would have known sooner to be able to address it and help in the beginning of your stay to make it more of an enjoyable trip. You can always request a top floor and we will definitely try to accommodate that for you. I hope you choose to stay with us again.
