My friend and I were in town for a brief stay at the end of a girls' trip to the Oregon Coast. We stayed at the Embassy Suites downtown and really enjoyed it. The front desk staff was very pleasant and quick to point out the "boil order" that had gone into effect for the city that weekend. As a result, they had stocked the rooms with bottled water and were using bagged ice for happy hour. The concierge was also very helpful with and enthusiastic about our planned outings.
We had a corner suite on the 8th floor, room 816, from which we were able to see the city's fireworks our first night there. All the rooms (sitting room, bathroom, bedroom) were spacious and clean. The furnishings seemed fresh and new. The location was great, with a quick walk to Voodoo Doughnuts, and an easy walk to Mother's (where we had dinner) as well as the Portland Saturday Market (where we spent hours). We opted not to park in the hotel lot, instead parked in the city lot around the corner. It had a great weekend rate (about $9 per night), so we saved money there.
Along with the places mentioned above, we enjoyed Powell's Books, the Rose Garden and Japanese Garden, a trip to Multnomah Falls, ice cream at Salt & Straw (seriously delicious, but go during off-hours to avoid really long lines) and eating on the retrofitted school bus at The Grilled Cheese Grill.
