We had not visited Portland before and so made a stop here for 2 nights on our way from BC to southern Oregon. Knowing nothing about the city, how lucky we were to have picked this gem to stay in. It is a beautifully restored large victorian mansion located on a quiet street in the historic district but just a stones throw from good eating places, shopping and the light rail into downtown Portland - the bonus being that it was the last stop in the 'free zone' so no fare to pay! Our room (Lavonna) was large and extremely comfortable and we loved the extra turret room with the all round seating which proved to be a great place to 'people watch' and read. Our hosts were absolutely charming and the information they provided on what to do in the area was extremely helpful. We opted for the breakfast package and it was delicious and beautifully presented in the formal dining room. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer - something we will remedy on our next visit to the Lion and the Rose.
