“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

There are many reasons to love this hotel. From the first welcome by all staff to the checkout, service was excellent and staff were helpful. With my family, we had 2 rooms, both very spacious and comfortable. The bed was comfortable. There was a desk for work, a couch for lounging and a mini-bar for snacks and drinks. They offer free wine and beer tasting in the lobby for an hour daily along with light snacks. The restaurant, Pazzo was great both for breakfast and dinner (they also offer lunch and there is a bakery for morning snacks/breakfast). The location is very convenient close to Pioneer Square, Voodoo Doughnuts, great restaurants, and shopping (from Target, Ross, TJMaxx to Macy's and Nordtrom's. It is an easy walk to Old Town where there is a Saturday market and within a couple of blocks there is a variety of food trucks for a quick meal. The hotel welcomes dogs, even writing a personal welcome in chalk on a dog-shaped blackboard. If you belong to the frequent-stayer program, In Touch you get free internet (easy to join the program online while there) and you also get a "raid the mini-bar" credit of $10.00. There were 2 sticky notes in the room-one for free wine with dinner and one for free coffee with breakfast. Some rates offer a $25.00 dining credit. Before arrival, I got an email with some information and when I had to make a reservation change prior to arrival, was helped by the contact person. I will gladly go back again.

Green Features: There was a recycling bin in the room and notes about being environmentally sensitive.

Old building but anything but old feeling inside. The ceilings in Pazzo's is really the only thing old showing. The service, the food, the free wine...there is nothing better. This was my first time here and it will not be my last. The jet-tub was relaxing. All the staff is top notch starting with the valets, going all the way through the hotel and ending in Pazzo's, everyone is helpful and always has a smile and a greeting for you.

Room Tip: If you want super privacy get one of the rooms that have no windows, can't get any more private...

Green Features: Park a hybrid or electric car with the valets and get a HUGE discount. Reuse bath towels and get a discount at Pazzo's.

Room, service, hotel restaurant all fabulous! Super clean everywhere. Manager Sandy and bell hops were outstanding. When we arrived, there was a mix up on our room, and hotel manager Sandy comped $50 at the hotel restaurant Pazzo which we really appreciated. It was wonderful to relax in the nice windowed, bar area during our wait; yummy happy hour menu for hot snacks and cocktails and a friendly wait staff.
Don't go elsewhere for breakfast; Pazzo delivers a beautiful breakfast, excellent service and is nicely accommodating to gluten intolerant folks too. Free beer and wine in the comfortable lobby from 5-6 p.m; also in the lobby is fresh water with lemon. Hotel is centrally located and an easy walk to the muni train even with luggage in tow. We took the muni from the airport and that couldn't have been easier. Our daughter used the hotel valet parking which was super easy for her after a long drive to the city. Our entire stay at this hotel was an excellent value for our money. We will stay again upon a return trip to Portland.

Wow, what a fabulous place. This was our first time staying at the Vintage Plaza and we chose it because it is pet friendly and has a great location. We decided last night this will be our new tradition and and we are going to stay there every year on the night of the Rose Festival Starlight Run & Parade. Thank you to you Sandy and your wonderful staff you are all truly "Top Notch."

My friend and I stayed at the Vintage Plaza over Memorial Day weekend and had a blast! The staff helped us enjoy our weekend playing tourists by recommending fabulous places to shop and dine. The highlight was waking up Sunday morning and riding the complimentary bicycles out to breakfast. The valet staff got us set up with the bikes, recommended a breakfast joint called Steppingstone and we were on our way. The restaurant was a great old-school diner that played rap music with fantastic service and food-what a weird place! I would expect nothing less than from Portland, it was perfect!
A big thanks to the Vintage Staff for their friendly service and charm!

I love this place, but cat give a perfect score because the charge for local calls and things like a tooth brush. Cheap chains can give those for free, for as much as Vintage Plaza charges, you'd think they could include a few freebies.

Thanks for returning to stay at our hotel once again, that is always our goal! We do have our "forgot it we got it" items that you can call down to the front desk - toothbrush/toothpaste, razors and a multitude of things that our guests often forget when traveling. We have a note in our bathrooms listing all of the items that we are happy to run up to you, complimentary. For our guest convenience, we also have put a couple of the items in our honor bar,with their related charges - so our guests have a choice and convenience. I am so sorry that you felt we weren't providing value, that is not our intention. I do appreciate your feedback and again truly appreciate your return to our property. We hope to see you back again. Enjoy the journey! Sandy Burkett, GM

My husband and I love the Kimpton Hotel chain and always stay at them, when they are in a city we are visiting. This location is wonderful, quiet, yet in the big City. We were able to walk many places and also used the valet parking which was fantastic. The restaurant menu was simple, yet fantastic. We enjoyed the complimentary after noon wine and beer and the fantastic service from the moment we entered the valet parking until we checked out 3 days later. We will stay there again the next time we are in Portland.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 9th floor and never heard a sound from any other rooms, quests or traffic

Green Features: This hotel is completely environmentally friendly. They even have a card on the night stand if you put it out on the door in the evening, they won't change your sheets and offer you $5.00 off your bill.
