Having a car in Portland, particularly downtown, can become quite expensive. We chose this hotel because we wanted to be able to experience downtown and all the people, places, activities, etc. There is something for everyone within walking distance of the hotel and it lies within the "free" area for public transportation. Since there were 4 of us we stayed in an executive suite--king bed in the bedroom and queen sleeper sofa in the living area. A Whole Foods Market is 2 blocks away and we made good use of the kitchenette for snacks, sandwiches, etc. The breakfast was good but the coffee machine is amazing. My two twenty year old sons could not pass the machine without mixing up a coffee house style drink. And then there are the cookies--freshly baked each evening. (Since we had missed them on our arrival they gave us a plate full to enjoy as we checked in and unpacked) There is also a wine tasting each evening from 5-6 each day and we met several people we would have never spoken to otherwise in the casual atmosphere of the library. The only complaint that I heard from my family was that the water pressure in the shower could have been stronger. We would definately stay there again.
