“Great Value. Nice, Convenient Hotel in Downtown Portland”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I've stayed here several times over the last couple of years, most recently the weekend of 2/18/12. The rooms are clean, comfortable, modern, and include a 'fridge that isn't loaded with stuff the hotel is trying to sell. There's free internet access, wired and wireless. The hotel is convenient to downtown shopping, Powell's books, several good restaurants, and more food trucks than you can count. We also like the restaurant in the hotel, The Original. I typically park in the US Bank lot that is one block north on Oak, which was $23 for 24h and allows you to come and go as you please. Valet is available for $29, but I have never used it. The fitness center is small, but adequate, especially since I've been the only one there every time I have used it. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I can usually find a $79 - $99/night discounted or AAA rate. For such a nice, convenient downtown hotel, that's a great value in my book.

We stayed one night here. The service from the hotel staff was really good and very friendly. The on property restaurant 'The Original' was also very good with excellent food. We did have a couple house keeping issues with the room, but the staff were very quick to respond to them and handled them well. In response to those issue, they comped us our room, which was overly nice of them and more than we expected, but does show the level of service of the hotel. We did find it odd that a modern hotel did not have any on-demand programs on the TV and room service stopped at 9:30 PM when the restaurant was open until 4 AM. So I'd say decent rooms, really good restaurant and excellent service.

Room Tip: Our corner room had a lot of the corner taken up by a hotel wall, so not really worth an extra cost.

You shouldn't judge the exterior of the building. Inside the hotel, it is clean and the employees are all exceptionally friendly. We checked in an hour early, coming from a long drive from Vancouver and the front desk was extremely welcoming and gave us access to our room right away. I booked through the Travel Portland website and got a wonderful deal on prices too including free breakfast and parking. The location of the hotel is very accessible and the best part would be the complimentary wireless internet in your rooms. :)

I really like this hotel. It's very boutique-like. EXCEPTIONAL staff and nice size rooms. Close to Max to explore the city and there's a fantastic coffee joint on almost every corner. Great place - I'll be back again as I usually do.

This hotel is second to none for service. The staff will exceed you expectations 100% of the time. The rooms and hotel itself are not typical of a Courtyard which tend to be more generic. The attached restuarant is a great place to grab a meal or if you want to venture out, you are within a five minute safe walk to several great restuarants. There is a full line Marriott just around the corner, however I chose this hotel every single time. It is friendly, easy, clean and out of the ordinary for the business traveller.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms facing Oak street as the views are pretty good.

This is a great central location to stay while in portland. It was my first trip here to Portland, and from where the hotel is located you can see what you need to see in Portland. You are a few blocks away from a fantastic used books store. Also, there is a donut shop called voodoo donuts that you have to see and eat. Also, you are two blocks away from food trucks that are killer and a must.

The parking is pricey, but you can find deals online that will include the parking. The rooms are nice. Great views.

I would stay here again. The staff are great at going the extra step to make the experience of Portland go smoothly. They will help you find hidden secrets that you won't know.
