You really couldn't ask for a better location: downtown within walking distance, Powell's books two blocks away, public transport to anywhere in the city within three short blocks, and lots of restaurants nearby. Also, if you want to get a kitchenette, there is a Whole Foods two blocks away for groceries. We ended up in an unrenovated room, which was still well-maintained and spotless, and frankly better than other two and three star hotels I've been in in bigger cities. The hotel offers a modest continental breakfast and an afternoon wine-tasting, all gratis, and again, for the price of the hotel, very pleasing and within expectations. I've had worse breakfasts in Paris and New York in much more expensive hotels. I couldn't believe the lack of traffic noise. I would definitely stay here again.
