This was a combo business + birthday trip to Portland. This hotel suited our style perfectly. What impressed us most was the courteous welcoming staff. They made us feel good everytime we exited the hotel on our daily adventures and same for our return. Check in a snap, business center A+, room wi-fi a breeze, room decor: quality, contemporary, upscale, clean, quiet. View from 16 floor room, outstanding. Best location in Portland, everything within walking distance or within the boundaries of their free transportation Max system (above street metro line). A great restaurant can be accessed through their lobby. We will definitely return to this hotel for our next stay in Portland.

This is no five star hotel; it is a great hotel with simple touches supporting the saying, "less is more". Simply:

Beds were new and hotel quality.
Cleanliness of room was top notch.
The decor was up to date and Portland - Indie cool.
Staff was helpful and attentive.
The "breakfast special rate" was outstanding for the food in "The Original" was outstanding; way beyond anything expected of a hotel restaurant but superior compared to any breakfast dinner: fresh, creative, and large portions. Rumor has it the place has a killer Happy Hour.

All in all ... a fine selection.

In contrast, last month, I stayed at the Juptier and this hotel truly sucks. It only exists "as is" because most people can not look beyond the superficial veneer and face the fact: it is a crappy Travel Lodge with a new paint job.

Stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott and was overwhelmed by the kind staff. Willy took our bags, and patiently provided us with tons of information on where to eat, etc. We'd gotten lost getting to the hotel, and went from frazzled to relaxed as soon as we hit the lobby. Clean rooms, great location, fabulous value.

Located near Portland's Saturday Market, Powell's Books, Old Town, and LIving Room Theatres. It was a reasonable walk to Light Rail stations.

The check-in was fast, efficient, and very friendly. I was offered all the help I wanted, and someone was always there to get the door going in and out of the hotel.

The room I had was sort of triangle shaped, which was fun, with a flat screen TV and spacious bathroom. It was a shower only, but that suited my purposes well. The bed was very comfortable. In the room there were clearly marked receptacles for recyclable materials as well as trash.

Check-out went very smoothly, and I left wishing I could have spent more time there.

Stayed for 2 nights at a weekend rate of $104. Hotel is located in a renovated 16 storey office building, and has only been open since May, so it is still very new and clean. Rooms are small, but have sleek contemporary furnishings, and offer great views of ther city. Free Wi-Fi, but parking is $29. Street parking is available for free between 6 pm and 8 am, so we parked on the street. My only complaint is that like many hotels, they spray air freshener rather liberally, and the windows do not open, so there is no way to dissipate the smell. If you call in advance, the staff will attempt to rovide a fragrance free room.

This hotel is clean, friendly and modern. The rooms are well decorated with artwork by local artists and the whole place has a nice contemporary feel to it.

It is located right in the middle of downtown very close to mass transit and walking distance to surrounding areas. Downtown is a little sleepy at night, but if you are using this hotel as a base to explore the city, it is a good location and a good value.

I stayed at other places for the same (or more) price and it was so nice to not have to worry about cleanliness, noise or safety here. I have no complaints.
