Yes, the decor in the rooms is dated, and if you have a problem with that maybe you should stay somewhere else. However, you will not find better service or a better staff at any other hotel in Portland. My daughters and I have traveled to Portland several times a year for the past 9 years for their sport events, shopping, shows etc. We normally go through Priceline and stay wherever we end up getting a room. Usually in very nice 3+ star places.. and let me tell you, we have stayed in much 'fancier' hotels, but never have we stayed somewhere better. In June we were in Portland so the girls could see Britney Spears (not my choice, theirs). I stayed in the room and enjoyed relaxing and reading while the girls were at the show. SUCH a homey atmosphere.. The staff here goes above and beyond to make sure the guests are comfortable. My favorite was Chris at the front desk. All of the staff was genuinely friendly and helpful. I never felt like they were just 'doing their jobs'. The hotel is close to everything you need downtown and the girls and I spent the day after the concert just walking around and shopping downtown. We had a really great time. Like I said before, the decor is a bit dated in the rooms, but it was very clean and extremely comfortable, so who cares? Oh, and the beds were great! Thank you everyone at The Mark Spencer Hotel.. we will be back! No more Priceline for Portland, we'll be booking straight through the hotel.
