Thia hotel is new and very nice. It is right in the Pearl district and is walking distance to everything. The hotel has very modern decor and has a nice lobby area as well as an outdoor seating area that is very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and willing to help. I arrived at 12:30 and was sure they would not have a room ready. I had called ahead to see if they had early check-in and they said they could possibly have something for me. They did have a room and by 12:45 I was out walking in the Pearl district. I appreciated this as I was there for work and was hoping to spend my Sunday exploring and not waiting for a room.

The rooms are spacious and each has a fully equiped kitchen so if you want to get take out from somewhere you can be comfortable back in your room. There is a nice hot breakfast with plenty of choices each morning.

They have a desk with lots of outlets so it is easy to charge all your gadgets. The bed was very comfortable. There are flat screen TV's in the living room and the bedroom.

It is a short walk to the tram which can take you where you need to go. The only bad thing is it is $32 for valet parking.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Portland, business or pleasure. You will not be disappointed.

Not at all what one expects when you think of a Residence Inn. I mean, you think of a nice room with a kitchen. But this was much more! Huge lobby with beautifully appointed modern style decor - very large gas fireplace sitting area with windows beyond showing many areas to sit or chat outside. Full bar in lobby, too. Beyond that is the breakfast room with the standard breakfast fare. Workstations plenty so it's ideal for eating/working simultaneously. Can't report on the indoor pool - wasn't there long enough, sadly. The room had very nice linens and the bathroom was spacious and simply decorated with long, rectangular, large floor tiles, unobtrusive wallpaper and a non-tub, large shower. Always appreciate an extra mirrored area to get ready and this had 2 of those areas. Throw in friendly staff and it's a great place! Rate was decent - it's the valet that adds another $32, but it's optional.

The new Residence in the Pearl district is perfectly located to easy walking around the Pearl district. If you have never been, it will remind you of Europe with the sidewalk cafes, tram lines, parks and safe atmosphere.

The hotel is modern, rooms are large and well laid out, the shower is the largest hotel shower I have seen. There are so many outlets in the room you could not possibly use them all. If you have ever been in a room with only one outlet you can appreciate my glee. While the breakfast does end at 9:30, the staff keeps it filled until the last minute, unlike many hotels.

The kitchen is fully equipped, the bed is comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The tram is close by giving you access to the great Portland light rail system.

I would recommend this hotel for any Portland stay, business or pleasure!

We stayed here last week end and had a fine time. This hotel is brand new and modern in design. The rooms are very well laid out and very efficiently designed. The breakfast was also very nice. The location is good to be able to walk around Portland. I would avoid the $32 valet parking and park across the street for $8. Definitely a place to stay if you want to visit Portland.

We were visiting our son who lives in Portland and I was happy to find out that there was a brand new Residence Inn in the Pearl District. It is within walking distance to great shopping, restaurants, coffee shops and several grocery stores. Also, the train station is about a 5 minute walk, just around the corner. We had a 2 Queen bed suite which was very roomy and also very quiet. It took a bit to get used to the lighting system, in which you have to hit a master switch to get the bathroom light to go on. Bathroom was very large and I like the soft light that stays on during the night. We did not have any luggage racks in the room and didn't realize you could request one. This is something that should be standard because most people use them. We used the gym twice and recommended to the front desk that they add at least one other exercise mat and that the exercise balls needed additional air - they were squishy. All the staff we encountered were very friendly. Breakfast and their staff was great! Lots of hot choices to be had, including scrambled eggs. We would go early (around 7 am), so we never encountered the long lines. At first, I found the color yellow a little jarring on the exterior if the hotel a little jarring, but by the end of the stay I was used to it. We will definitely stay here again in the future!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 5th floor and our room overlooked the courtyard, so it was super quiet.

I quite liked this hotel which is apparently new (about 4 weeks I was informed), very handy for the Pearl District and still clean and tidy, however I have a few observations.

Firstly, the "complimentary" breakfast ( it always annoys me when they say complimentary as we all know we pay for it anyway) was a little basic and the facilities and set-up would be familiar to anyone that's undergone basic army training. It also closes at 9:30 which nearly caught us out as just about everywhere else I've stayed goes on until 10.

Secondly, don't use the valet parking service as all they do is put it in the multi story car park next door and charge you way above the car park rate.

We also had a visit from a room service attendant who didn't knock and just walked straight into the room, much to the surprise of my wife. Luckily we were dressed and in a state of relaxation at the time otherwise it could have been red faces all round.

It would also seem that the lift capacity is less than would be ideal as we seemed to have to wait for a lift every time. It's not helped by the fact that one of the three lifts is commandeered by house-keeping thereby reducing the available capacity by one-third at a stroke.

Oh, and the swimming pool is little more than a long bath.

Other than that I thought the rooms were well equiped and the hotel served our purpose well.

We booked three nights at this hotel on our recent vacation to Portland. The hotel is in a fantastic location. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to see and to all of the breweries and restaurants we were interested in going to. The hotel is brand new so it's very clean and modern looking. The staff is very friendly. Since it's a Residence Inn, the rooms are very large with a sitting area and a little kitchen. The kitchen was not a necessity for us but it was nice to have. The breakfast was very good every morning. Maybe we went a off times, but we never found it to be very crowded or have long lines. My only negative about this hotel is the cost of parking. We paid $32 per night for parking. I think that's an outrageous price and honestly, if I could have parked in a municipal lot then I would have. I have never paid such an expensive price for parking before.
