“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Very clean property. Stayed in many Residence Inn's and this is by far one of the nicest/contemporary RI's I have visited. Convenient walk to many Pearl shops and Max line. Train noise isn't bad. You can save money if you self park around the corner. $8/day vs. $32.

Room Tip: East facing rooms get early morning sun and are a little closer to the train tracks.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the very nice valets. Walked into the lobby it was fantastic. Very trendy and pretty. We were checked in by Matthew. He was excellent. Pointed us in the right direction for food and how to get to other places. The room was like being at home. The breakfast had everything. And it was tasty too

I discovered this new Residence Inn in Portland's Pearl District because the Riverside Residence Inn just a few blocks away where we normally stay didn't have any suites left on the date we needed. We stayed here after we finished the Seattle to Portland bike ride on July 12th. The hotel is very modern and stylish, the staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived late and the security guard at the front entrance tipped us off that we could park on the street right in front of the hotel until 1pm on Sunday for free so we didn't have to pay for valet parking. The suite rooms were comfortable and the master bedroom had a large walk-in shower. There was secure bike storage although we were allowed to keep our bikes in the room with us which we really appreciated. The hotel is adjacent to the train station. Check-out is at noon and breakfast is complimentary. We will definitely stay again. Same consistent service we've experienced at other Residence Inns but all shiny and new with a very modern and cool design.

This is a new hotel with an excellent location in the beautiful Pearl District. We arrived in town at Union Station after an Amtrak train ride up the coast. This hotel is less than a five-minute walk from Union Station. You can walk to several streetcar stops, coffee shops, liquor store, corner market and endless restaurants. The room was very spacious and spotless. You walk into a large kitchen with granite counters and a living room with a comfortable pull-out sofa. There is a separate bedroom and bath. The walls seemed to be very well insulated. I would highly recommend this hotel!

I stayed here solely based on the location, to be as close to the train station as possible. It turns out this is also a very desirable neighborhood, with lots of little restaurants and shops nearby, and a small park to sit and read in the sun.

The hotel significantly exceeded my expectations. I found myself constantly saying "wow, this is really nice". The staff was very friendly, our room was huge, and everything was very clean. Our room had a full kitchen, complete with a stove and dishwasher, which worked out really great for eating lunch and dinner in our room. Everything was very hip and modern, and our beds were fantastically comfortable. The free breakfast in the morning was exactly what we needed. I wish I could have stayed longer, but I will definitely stay here again.

Stayed here on business. Although this is kind of on what I would consider "the outskirts" of town it is a short walk to restaurants and anything else you need and you cannot beat these rooms. They are all mini suites with kitchens, couch/living room area, modern decor, comfortable beds. Only issue was that the shower seemed to spray water onto the floor because there isn't a curtain or full door on it.

The staff was very friendly and the included breakfast was typical Residence Inn breakfast which I find to usually be great. (waffle maker, oatmeal, cereals, fruit, yogurt, other hot items). They do (like Residence Inns have) dinners/cocktail type hour foods a few days during the week so it was nice on my way out one night I was able to grab some cheese and a quick bite before getting on the road for work.

There is a garage next door that can park in over night but you cannot take your car in and out so I had to use the valet. The valet staff was super helpful and nice but the price was pretty steep at $32 a night. I had no choice but to use them because I needed in/out access and I got back one night after the garage next door had already closed so I wasn't able to park there.

It was still a little chilly when I went but in the summer I'm sure their patio area is amazing. Really neat looking little sitting areas with couches, trees, flowers, etc. It seemed really relaxing sort of a little oasis that would not make you think you are in a city because the building surrounds half of it so it stays quiet.
