This is one of the best places I've stayed in. The rooms are large and oh so brightly colored and easily accommodate 3 people with a king bed and a sofabed. Room basics were good--plenty of light, dark at night, comfortable bed. Despite the room's large size, ventilation is a little limited, there's one window in the room and a door to a balcony. This led us to run the air conditioner/fan more than would be ideal (but "green" points to the hotel for putting a recycling bin under the kitchen sink, and for putting a note on the counter about it).
Our room had a full kitchen, not that we used much in a neighborhood brimming with restaurants. I would describe NW 21st Ave., which is next to the hotel, as Portland's "Gourmet Ghetto." We had a meal at Wildwood, literally around the corner from the hotel, a northwest cuisine restaurant that reminded us very much of Berkeley's Chez Panisse. The hotel breakfast with bagels and waffles and good coffee was quite good as hotel continental breakfasts go.
The hotel is located on the famed Portland Streetcar, and they'll supply you with tickets to ride the streetcar free all day. The Streetcar gets you to the Pearl District (though you could walk there) to Powell's Bookstore and Downtown. There are also several bus routes and the hotel had a map, very unusual. But parking is also free.
