My daughter got married in Portland the first week in January this year and because her reception was taking place in the Crystal Ball room, the Mark Spencer was one of the closest hotels to the venue. This hotel is conveniently located near the downtown area with lots of great restaurants and coffee shops near By. The staff is helpful and friendly. The lobby very clean and inviting with great white chocolate macadamia cookies. They also have coffee and tea available 24 hrs. , Including a great machine that makes anything from a capuchino to a mocha coffee. They also serve wine with cheese and crackers from 5 to 6 pm. Included in the rate you also get a continental breakfast which is not bad. The rooms are clean and beds comfortable. The only problem was the bathrooms didn't have bars for people with mobility problems for getting in and out of the bathtubs. I requested a room with a shower for my 78 year old mother and they told me there were none available. The bathrooms are old and the hair drier did not work. The parking is expensive at $18.00/per day but I understand it is hard to find parking in downtown Portland. I would definitely stay there again but I would not bring my mom back, since they can't accommodate people with disabilities. The best part of staying here is that there are a lot of shops within walking distance and I love to shop:)
