I was about to write a review about what I perceived was an exceptionally unique stay until I read the others. Apparently, the hotel goes above and beyond for all of its guests. Yes, the hotel is wonderfully funky with a gracious staff, terrific amenities and a great location. The common comment across all these reviews, however, is the outstanding...

I've stayed in a number of kimpton hotels, including the vintage also in Portland, which I loved. This hotel needs a spruce up. Everything feels a bit old and the decor is so eclectic it's jarring and to me not aesthetically pleasing. The bath towels are positively motel six. Small and not soft. Water pressure in bath quite low. Bathroom...

Im a Kimpton Loyalty Member and we booked one night last week in Portland. You can walk everyone from this hotel into downtown with coffee and restaurants nearby. The staff is always friendly and there is a nice complimentary Happy Hour every night. I love the decor and the bedrooms -- very spacious. We had a suite and it was...

Hello Ticket2Venture, Thank you for staying with us, we're very happy you enjoyed yourself! Glad to see you enjoyed one of our marvelous suites, with over 550 square feet they accommodate a lot of friends and family. Get back and see us soon; we'll have a glass waiting at Social Hour!

This is by far our favorite hotel we have ever stayed with. The decor is incredible, the rooms luxurious and comfortable but the service is what really knocks it out of the park. Every member of our family (including our 4 legged guest) felt pampered and as though they had received special attention from the staff. Already planning our return.

This place is one of the most unique hotels my family and I have ever stayed in. First, we really looked at this place for location, plus they accept dogs.

Hello Seattlemom22, We really appreciate your staying with us, along with your extensive review. It really tells us what we're doing well so we can keep it up.

From the moment you check in, you can feel the difference between this hotel and others. For example the check in counter had three staff members sitting and chit chatting, one stood up to greet me while the other two stayed seated and talking to each other. This is very different from other higher end hotel chains that when you...

Hello bocaberger, Thanks for the great comments, so happy that you had a good stay. Also appreciate your detailed feedback on the experience. Our leopard robes are a Kimpton signature amenity, but the bird wallpaper is all ours! The wallpaper features five regional birds native to our area and it's exactly the reason we put it on our walls; it's...

Great city location, wishing walking distance of most of Portland. The service from all the staff is INCREDIBLE, from check-in to check-out. They all go above and beyond the usual, and all with a genuine and happy demeanor. There is a wine happy hour with music every afternoon. Pets are welcome and greeted with treats. The elevator lobby always has...

From the moment you walk in, you know you're not in a traditional chain hotel. Let's start with the decor, it is something else. Throughout the hotel, there's quirky bits and pieces that take your eye and find yourself constantly looking for more. We had a king corner room, which was an average size. The decor, once again was different...

Dear Janelle S, Thanks very much, glad you enjoyed yourself! Amazing design, I'd agree; cannot tell you how many requests we get for the color code of the periwinkle in the lobby. Everyone loves it. They also like the birds on our walls too; there's five local species up there that help the room design soar (pardon the pun). Hope...
