I cannot say enough positive things about this hotel and their staff. From the moment you walk through the beautiful front glass doors, you are greeted by friendly staff that are immediately offering assistance and left with the feeling that they truly care about providing a quality and enjoyable stay.
This property combines classic Hollywood with modern amenities. I was pleasantly surprised to discover the pillow menu they advertised was actually a menu for pillows. Since most of the time the pillows that come on the bed (and don’t get me started on how comfortable this bed was) in most rooms are either too soft or too hard, so having this option available was wonderful. Just happened that the pillows pre-selected for the bed are perfect. You can also order up an iPod preloaded with music should you desire. Also, loved the Aveda bath products in the bathroom!
The Driftwood Room lounge has a great happy hour featuring champagne cocktails, which got quite crowded. But not to worry, they will serve you in the lobby, just pull up a comfortable couch and relax. I enjoyed an “Elizabeth Taylor”, champagne and crème de violet, which was quite different and very tasty. This was a perfect start to our “night on the town”.
We also enjoyed brunch the next morning in the hotel’s restaurant, Gracie’s. The home fries of russet, Yukon gold, sweet and purple potatoes were delish and perfectly cooked. I ordered a mimosa with breakfast, and when the waiter saw that I was “nursing” it, he made sure to tell me to drink up, they are bottomless! (Can you tell champagne is a theme here?)
While not in the heart of downtown, NW or the Pearl, it was a great location to explore the city from for our “staycation”. MAX is a few short blocks away, as well as the streetcar, and Henry’s and Powell’s are just a couple of blocks away. The best part about being a bit off the grid, how surprisingly quiet it was at night. Other than the occasional passing train, it was very peaceful.
If you are planning a trip to Portland, I could not recommend this hotel enough!
