This is an old historic building turned Embassy Suites. Gorgeous lobby. Clean room. Nice staff. Close to river, restaurants and public transportation. We stayed with a group function, so had a meal as well. Food was quite good and well prepared.

Don't expect the 'typical' rooms. This is an old building converted to hotel. Rooms are different from each other, I saw 3 of them - all laid out differently. The hotel had to be creative on some rooms in order to get a bathroom inside.

It is very close to the Max red line which runs to the airport. Didn't have a car, so didn't have to deal with the cost of parking. You really don't need a car for downtown. The transportation is free within the downtown area and easy to get to. If you want a car, there is Hertz across the street or Enterprise on next block. Stumptown Coffee also right around the corner from hotel.

Wifi in the lobby free. Pricey from the room. Breakfast is Embassy breakfast. Lots of choices and options. Depending on time you go - very crowded! Didn't use pool, can't comment on it. Yes, homeless are very noticeable in Portland. Didn't have any issues with it.

Overall, very convenient hotel to downtown Portland. Loved the old historic building.

My girlfriends and I were in Portland to attend a wedding. We wanted to stay together but were concerned about 4 of us getting ready for the wedding in 1 bathroom. SO...someone suggested Embassy Suites...and it was amazing! The building was built in 1912, the lobby looks like it came from directly from the 1900's but fresh!!
Check in was quick and professional. We reserved a 2 room King Suite, with a living room and 2 bathrooms, it was perfect! The rooms were tastefully decorated, the linens were very nice, bathrooms were newly remodeled. One of our rooms overlooked VooDoo Donuts which is open 24/7 and there was never an issue with noise. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel!

OH!! AND there is a happy hour in the Lower Lobby each day which serves wine & beer complimentary AND a full breakfast including an omelet station every morning!

EmbassySuitesHotel69, Manager at Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland - Downtown, responded to this reviewResponded 8 September 2012

Thank you for writing such a wonderful review about your recent stay in Portland with us here at the Embassy Suites Portland- Downtown.

Our hotel is perfect for those looking for a little more space than your traditional hotel accommodations. Being able to provide separate living areas from the bedroom makes it perfect for families or anyone else looking for space and privacy. This is especially true of our two bedroom, two bathroom suites!

Hopefully the next time you have a special occasion or need someplace to rest your head when visiting Portland you will think of us!

This is a beautiful hotel built around 1912. The sitting room was good sized with a large flat screen TV. The bedroom was a nice size also with a large flat screen TV. The kitchenette was perfect. The place was clean, comfortable, and had a view of downtown. They offer free happy hour with wine and beer. The free breakfast was really good with omlettes made to order.

There is an indoor pool that was clean and they had a fitness room that was small, but I used the treadmill and was pleased.

The location is close to the riverfront and great restaurants.

My husband and I stayed two nights at this hotel August 24-26, 2012. We love Embassy Suites, they have reliably excellent service, accomodations are outstanding, the Manager's Reception is primo and morning breakfast perfect to start the day with sightseeing. Our only slight dissappointment was the noise level at night. There were many persons yelling (partying) and homeless persons sleeping on the sidewalk. Despite that, our time at the hotel was outstanding.

Room Tip: Free Drinks and Breakfast with every reservation

You can become so accustomed to the modern hotel in North America that it is a bit of a shock to the system when you stay in a historic building in a city location.
The Embassy Suites in Portland is just that...and so long as you know this..and realise that the rooms and some of the furnishings are a bit older aswell....then there should be no problems. The lobby is spectacular (as mentioned) and the building itself has quite a history. Yes there are afew "vagrants" in the area but we found this to be the case in a lot of the city and it dosen't really change much unless you want to hang around the vicinity all day (which if you are on holiday..you won't be).

We recently stayed in Portland as a group of 4 (family and a friend) and we were made to feel very welcome and comfortable. We upgraded to a two room suite (two bedrooms two bathrooms) which gave us ample space...and the hotel even provided a rollaway for my son (aged 4) so that he could sleep in one of the bedrooms with us..and leave the lounge area free in the evening for us to relax (rather than use the sofa bed).

Breakfast is as other reviews have said...the usual from an embassy suites...and to me..that means excellent. Good choice and good standard (the scrambled eggs with cheese had my son asking for more every day!). We used both the fitness and pool areas on this trip...both were fine..although I would say the pool is not really designed for "lane swimming" more of a play area with the kids I suppose...so if you are looking to swim for fitness....you might not get much of it in the pool.

Also as most reviews say...Voodoo doughnuts is just up the street (behind the hotel) and the one thing I can say is go early...during the day and into the night there was always a line up. We went at 830am to beat the queues! It was worth it though.

We loved our stay here..and would recommend it to anyone looking to get away from the tower block modern hotel style. Staff and service were great for us...and it was a most welcoming place.

Room Tip: If you can afford the upgrade..the two room suite gives you LOTS of space for a family.
