We thought we were staying at the Downtown Courtyard but, upon arrival, they had maps ready for the many others who thought they were staying downtown. "You'll go through some iffy neighborhoods but you'll be really close to the Convention Center." "Iffy" was right. However, the staff (valet and front desk) were exceptional, bending over backwards to help us out in whatever way they could. Rooms were spacious and clean, well-lit and air-conditioned...but the neighborhood was a little scary. We originally were going to eat DOWNTOWN at Jake's Crawfish (a nice walk from the other DOWNTOWN hotel) which the front desk acknowledged to be the best in Portland, but didn't want to have to pay $$ for parking. We found an exceptional BBQ place (Podnah's) in a changing neighborhood that had been frequented by Guy Fieri and worth the short drive...too bad it's not in DOWNTOWN. Very modern-styled hotel with a staff that was exceptional with easy access to the Columbia River Gorge...did I mention that it's not DOWNTOWN? If you have a convention there, this is a great place to stay; if just visiting Portland, try the other DOWNTOWN hotel. Don't make the same mistake we (and many others) did.
