This hotel is a very nice hotel in a very good location. The rooms are clean and comfortable and quiet. The hotel was once an apartment building, so the rooms have mini-kitchens with a refrigerator, stove, and sink. The rooms have dishes, pans, utensils, and everything you need to cook. There is a Whole Foods Market walking distance, so its easy to pick up some quick groceries. There are lots of very good restaurants and micro-breweries walking distance, so there is no need to cook if you don't want to. There is shopping nearby as well. The free breakfast provided by the hotel is excellent; the pastries are fresh and delicious and look like they may have been purchased from Whole Foods. In addition to breakfast, the hotel provides afternoon cookies or pastries and tea and coffee. The staff is very nice and helpful.
The hotel is also "green". There are recycling cans in each room. The shampoo, conditioner, and soap are in dispensers rather than providing little disposable plastic bottles. The breakfast places are glass and washed rather than disposable.
Overall, its a great place to stay in Portland, and I would not hesitate to go back.
