Having had many wonderful visits to other Kimpton hotels we decided to stay here for four nights (including Christmas) at this beautiful hotel in downtown Portland. The location was very convenient for exploring the city and walking to restaurants. Public transportation was right outside the door and the Trimet Red Line to and from the airport was two short blocks away. We had a double – double suite which included a bedroom with two double beds and a sitting room with several chairs and a couch. It was a perfect setup for three adults. The room was decorated with different furniture styles which some reviewers have labeled “quirky” but for us it was a nice change from the predictable hotel room. The bathroom was older but worked fine for us. The hotel had a lovely living room off the lobby that always had a fire going , which made it very welcoming whenever we came in from the cold. There were always fellow guests enjoying it, also. We enjoyed the nightly wine hour. The first two nights we stayed there the wine hour was packed with guests and for many their pets. It was hard to find a seat, however, the last two nights it was a lot less crowded. It was enjoyable sharing a glass of wine with fellow travelers and their dogs. Since our dog was not with us, it was nice to be around other dogs. Most of the staff, especially the valet staff, were very accommodating. The one disappointment was there was no concierge on duty while we were there. The front desk staff said that the concierge was off. We had a couple of minor maintenance problems (not surprising considering the age of the hotel) that were handled quickly. All in all an enjoyable stay and we would certainly recommend this hotel.
