We have stayed at many Kimpton Hotels, including the other ones in Portland so were looking forward to this lovely fall evening. We looked forward to checking the car for the night and enjoying all the small shops and restaurants along the waterfront. The valet service was great and the check in process easy and pleasant. We had been given an upgraded King Suite room, but the good times stopped there. The King Suite was old, tired, dark and musty smelling. I immediately went to open the curtains for some light and the windows for fresh air but found that I couldn't do either because we were directly above the valet parking area, with the freeway exit ramp beyond that. The furniture was so worn and scuffed, I covered the coffee table with magazines just to make it look better. In addition, though there is an ice bucket in the room, the only way to get ice is to call room service, which in our case was not convenient. There was not a coffeemaker in the room either, but the front desk did tell me that I could get free coffee in the lobby in the morning. I kind of doubt that the hotel manager would want to see me down there in my jammies! Overall, not a good choice.
