You can take MAX here from the airport for a few bucks and never have to drive if you're stay is based on the East side. Otherwise you will need a rental car or a few taxi fares... It is about 2-3 blocks from the nearest MAX stop, which is easy even in you're wearing heels. Otherwise it's around $25/night to park your car. We've done both. You are in "fareless square" area; meaning the light rail (MAX) is free for the main city area. That said, we walked pretty much everywhere. Excellent dining and shopping within 5-10 minutes' walking distance. This is our favorite PDX hotel, it's just kind of pricey for us, so we stay in cheaper places sometimes. We have stayed here maybe 10 different times. All the rooms are good, beer/wine free in lobby every evening, good bathrooms, nice linens, QUIET. You will love staying here. We would stay here every time we were in town if it were nearer our budget. We have gone out to Columbia River Gorge from here and preferred staying at Edgefield/McMennamins vs. driving back and forth in a single day. The Monaco is quiet, clean, well-staffed, and perfectly located for an East-side stay. It's in our top 10 list for sure!
