I was worried that we would be too far away from all the "cool" stuff we wanted to do in the Portland area, but quickly found that this hotel was centrally located to everything and offered a quick trip back to the airport when it was time to leave. The TriMet light rail system was only a couple of blocks away.
The room (#140) was a spacious smoking room, as requested. They could stand to spray some Febreze around, but if you want a smoking room you sometimes have to make allowances. Other than that, the room was very clean and well kept. The bed was very comfy.
The bathroom had a nice vanity with plenty of room for all the junk I bring with me on vacation. The shower head was nice and high - good for taller people.
The free breakfast was pretty good, featuring make-your-own waffles (fresh!), sausages, omelets, cereals, and a variety of coffees and teas. There are also free cookies at the front desk in the afternoon.
The in-room coffee makers were the one-cup type, but when we asked for a 4-cup, they gladly provided it.
The only thing I can really criticize is that the pool and hot tub were a little dingy. Not dirty, but in need of some refurbishment.
This hotel has a great staff that goes out of their way to make you happy. We definitely will be back!

Many guests at our Portland hotel are corporate travelers looking to take advantage of our great proximity to the airport, light rail and downtown. MAX, Portland's light rail system whisks guests directly into the heart of downtown.

We're known for our stellar customer service, and the outdoor seasonal pool and year-round hot tub are perfect for relaxing. However, make sure you start every morning right with a full, free hot breakfast featuring waffles, fruits, cereal and coffee. Our location, just two miles from the airport, makes us an easy choice for frequent flyers.
