This is not your cookie cutter Embassy Suites. The building is historic and all amenities are a cut above. The pool is bigger and nicer than other hotels in the chain. It is walking distance to a great (but somewhat chaotic) bookstore and a delicious (but small and noisy) pizza place directly across from the bookstore. I have forgotten the names, but the friendly hotel staff will direct you. We did not go to Voodoo doughnuts, but there were folks with boxes of doughnuts on the street so I will assume it is walking distance. The folks on the street are a friendly interesting cross section of Portland. If you aren't comfortable with variety, take a cab to a restaurant instead of walking. We arrived on Amtrak, and the hotel was a five minute ride by taxi. Embassy Suites is my favorite hotel chain when traveling with kids. The kids know what to expect, and Mom and Dad get their own room. Heads up for travelers with autistic kids, the bookstore was almost too much for my child....huge selection but packed with people. We didn't see a cozy place to sit with a book (like you can at Barnes and Noble and smaller bookstores).
