Summary~ Recommended! Clean, spacious, friendly, conveniently located and priced better than some a tad newer. Stairs make upper floors a pain to take luggage to, but once inside some views are worth it.
I've read reviews on this first and found our differing opinions interesting. My experience is that I've stayed at the location many times. To answer another reviewers question, it is an older site, but has great square feet and some other plusses with mature plants that make it very quaint. All suites, and little spaces to sit, eat, talk etc. Even when I go alone, I like room to breathe.
I've also stayed in other Res Inns as other interviewers, but I do find differences. This one is pretty dang consistent in keeping things fresh and clean, and food coming until it is time to be done. Front desk staff have been very courteous in my experience. I love that they have an outdoor pool. Many Portland hotels opt for indoor because of the 9 months of rain :). But when its nice out, man its sweet to take a dip in a clean pool and catch some rays.
The location is in a mixed bag part of town. It is a few minutes by tram or car to the trendiest part of Portland these days, the Pearle District with it's fab dining and high end shops and it's sister neighborhood, the eclectic 23rd Ave, which is a must visit. You can walk to the MAX (mass transit that in Portland is not in the bus category).
I've literally stayed at this Res Inn and never rented a car, which for me, I only do in Honolulu other than this location. You can get to airport, malls, downtown and have a blast just hitting the rail system. At the same time, watch the time of day and when you're out, especially alone as a woman. The other part of the location is interesting locals who aren't in the cleaned up areas, and they give off a street mojo, so like most cities, you still have to be aware and not be dumb.
