We were on an extended stay and can't say enough good things about the Oxford Suites in Jantzen Beach. The staff were all friendly and extremely helpful in everything. We were so impressed with the genuine helpfulness of all staff members; they always went out of their way to answer questions, make phone calls, get information, or whatever was necessary.
The rooms were spacious, clean and cozy, the beds very comfortable although the pillows were a bit firm ... softer pillows would be a recommendation. I did however like the fact that they had lots of pillows on the bed. Our room had an extra sofa which also opened into a bed, a table with two chairs, a fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board, and hairdryer.
Breakfast buffet was included in room price, available every morning and it was great. A cook makes your eggs to order and there was sausage, potatoes, pancakes, waffles, bagels, toast, muffins, fruit, juice, cereals, and coffee. Although the breakfast was always terrific, the coffee does leave a lot to be desired. I always went out later for a decent cup of coffee.
Every evening from 5:30 to 9:30 they have Evening Reception in the dining area where they serve hot food, usually appetizers of some kind, along with tossed salad, veggies, and chips. The hot food varied each evening: chicken wings, meatballs with mashed potatoes and gravy, chili, pasta with marinara sauce were a few offerings. We looked forward to this each evening and it was so plentiful that we never actually went out to eat dinner, so that was great. In addition, each guest gets two drinks each in the bar: beer, wine, or soda.
A really nice touch are the fresh cookies on a platter every afternoon at the front reception desk. Guests are able to help themselves to chocolate chip, raisin, and peanut butter cookies and they were delicious!
The location of the Oxford Suites is great for access to both Portland and Vancouver. In addition, there are restaurants and stores for shopping nearby, including a McDonald's, Taco Bell, Burger King, Target and Ross. Driving time to Portland Int'l Airport is about 15-20 minutes depending on traffic.
I would highly recommend the Oxford Suites to anyone planning a stay in the Portland/Vancouver area. You won't find a more comfortable hotel with friendlier staff anywhere for the price. The next time I'm in the area, this is definitely where I'm staying.
Thank you Karma, Lori and everyone for making our stay so pleasant!
