My wife and I stayed at the Inn and Northrop Station for two nights to see highlights of Portland. So, we wanted a hotel near the heart of town without all the downtown noise. This location is close enough to city center in a neighborhood of restored older homes and good eateries, and streetcar access to downtown is right outside the front door and free with tickets provided by front desk staff.
It's a three-story building and we chose the back-facing king room on the third floor. The room was fairly quiet, though the bed seems to be right at the entrance door to the room, as is the door to the bathroom. A post with light switches is situated between the bed area and kitchen, which can be bumped into if not paying attention or moving around at night with lights out. This was a problem my wife encountered, though no issue for me. Just thought I'd raise it, though.
The room is colorful, though the colors may or may not be to your taste. It's certainly well-equipped with two flat-panel TV's, a large one at the desk in front of the kitchen, and a small one on the wall next to the bed. The bathroom has an old tub/curtain shower combo, and a single sink. Small, functional, and with good water pressure for the shower.
The internet worked though I've had faster connections before. It's speed was fine, though, for most applications. The breakfast is in a colorful room (what else would you expect!) off the lobby, with free candies in jars, and an assortment of cereals, waffle-maker, and fruit. However, there were no hot food selections such as scrambled eggs. We felt that was an omission.
Overall, if staying in a fun and different accommodation in a neat neighborhood near downtown Portland sounds appealing, this is a solid choice. I thought it was very good, not excellent, mainly due to the layout of the room with its bed right at the door (bad for privacy if opening the door while someone is still in bed) as well as a bit of a musty smell in hallways detected as well as lack of hot food choices at breakfast. It was quiet and comfortable, though, and we would stay there again.
