My fiancé and I stayed 3 nights (Thursday-Sunday). The staff was friendly and the hotel interior isn't traditional, but I'm not sure that is enough to make me come back. I don't regret staying here but will try another property in the future, and I'm really glad we didn't book directly and pay full price. I would have felt short-changed.... More

Stayed here three nights over a weekend in early October. Basically exactly what I expected from a hip Portland establishment, without ever having been there before. A++ location - it was easily within walking distance of everything we wanted to see in the city. The room was medium-small though, and the furniture and decoration was a little run-down and somewhat... More

It's in an old building. While the interior may look updated and hip and chic with its contrasting fabrics and wallpaper (too contrasting for my taste), the bones of the building are old. The pipes are old. They whistle and shriek whenever they're on, so when the neighbors are showering, my room had such a loud shrieking whistle in it... More

* The glasses provided in the room were dirty when I arrived. * When I called to have them replaced, someone brought me new ones but did not remove the dirty ones. * The next day, the same dirty glasses were rinsed out and returned to the original location as if they had been cleaned.

Room was great! I went with a friend for the weekend. I usually stay in less expensive hotels, so this was pure luxury. Loved the "happy hour". Convenient location. Staff were great! My friend left one bag there by mistake, delivered to her home the next day.

Visiting Portland for the weekend and I was so impressed! The staff was kind and accommodating. The room was clean and nicely decorated. We were within walking distance of almost everything. And complimentary beer and wine daily? Yes please! Will definitely be staying again.
