We visit Portland at least a few times a year and have stayed at many hotels in the city -- from The Governor to the Westin and The Benson. We always come back to Hotel Monaco! They offer great rates (check Hotwire!) and nice spacious rooms. As a Kimpton member, I always get upgraded to a bigger room, upper floor, mini bar credit, etc. The New York Times is waiting for me every morning just outside the door.
I love the wine happy hour every evening in the grand room with fuchsia walls! In fact, I love all of the Hollywood Regency decor touches throughout this hotel! The wallpaper behind the check-in desk is straight out of Domino magazine and totally dream-worthy!
The Monaco's location may be a bit further from the Pearl and Nob Hill but it's worth the extra couple of blocks as one of the most comfortable and reliable hotel chains around!
My only caution would be to request a room that is not above the Red Star restaurant (which is connected to the hotel). There is a bus stop right on that corner and unless you're on an upper floor, you WILL hear buses coming and going until late in the night and starting again early in the morning. Once we learned to avoid that corner of the hotel, I've never had a bad night's sleep!
