Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a trip from Seattle to San Francisco. The room had much better facilities than expected for the bargain internet price of $99 per night - stylish decor, immaculately clean, iPod dock/alarm, safe, fridge, coffee maker (and Tazo teas) and a big comfy bed! A previous review mentions street noise - you can choose a courtyard room when you book online - we were on the top floor and there is no street noise on that side of the hotel (we also had a nice view of the "green wall").
After a swift check in and unpacking, we asked for a map at the front desk and received an incredibly helpful map with public transport information/routes, plus a run down of recommended areas for eating, shopping and just wandering around. We walked to Downtown/Pearl/riverside and there is public transport within a few blocks for other more distant areas such as the Rose Test/Japanese Gardens and NW 21st/23rd streets. We didn't have a car but the public transport is frequent, reliable and very easy to work out.
We did have the same problem as a previous reviewer with the key cards for our room not working once; but this seems to be a common problem in hotels the world over and was quickly resolved by the ever helpful and smiling reception staff.
The Ira Keller fountain just around the corner (on Clay) was a great people-watching spot on a hot afternoon - no formalities here, shoes off and have a paddle or if you are feeling brave, plunge into one of the deeper sections as we witnessed a couple of other people doing!
