After all we'd heard about The Nines we were really looking forward to spending two nights there. Our mistake that we didn't ask about room choices so we take responsibility for this first comment: our room faced the courtyard/lobby so there was no outside window making the room very dark. I am one who sleeps with the drapes open as I love the first of day. The small refrigerator bleeped all night long, like a smoke alarm does when the battery is low. When we checked in they didn't say anything about serving coffee in the lobby - we just noticed there was no way to make coffee in our room so went out for coffee in the morning. No big deal but it also would have been good to know they provide this. Before checking out I asked the front desk where I could get a newspaper (NYT or the local one) and she said they keep them behind the counter where you check in. Thus, when one looks around and you don't see any papers it's easy to assume, like the coffee that they don't provide papers..There were two of us and one bathrobe and when they turned down the bed at night there was one chocolate on one pillow. Hello - we are two people. There was no clock in the room - maybe they just assume everyone uses their cell phones for everything. I requested an early wake-up call because I had to walk several blocks to catch a street car and then get the tram to OHSU (Oregon Health Science University) where I had a medical appointment at 7:00am and this call was 5 minutes late. Again, not usually a big deal but this meant it definitely made my morning rushed. The room was hot and we could turn the thermostat down to 60 with the fan on high BUT the room never got this cool. We only had a down comforter on the bed and given that it was 73 in Portland while we were there, it was a hot sleep both nights. The linens are of high quality as were the pillows and even the down comforter but it's too bad there wasn't another blanket option. Given that this room is $329/night I would have expected much more! We will never stay there again.
