Would absolutely visit again. It's clean, modern, and staff are very helpful and accommodating. The historical interior has been beautifully highlighted while adding a touch of modern to it. Walking distance to a bunch of really good restaurants and some shopping areas. We had dinner...More

We were in town for 4 nights on a business trip for my wife in Portland. The conference (maybe 120 people?) was based in this hotel, so staying here was very convenient. We were greeted right away by the friendly staff at the front desk....More

The rooms are large and clean. Try and stay on a high floor facing W. Broadway. The lobby is simply beautiful and the staff takes pains to keep it lustrous. A pleasure to sip coffee or anything else in this grand space.

Reviewed 1 December 2016

Nice place, great location, very clean rooms. Only draw back is the valet parking at $ 40/night that i do not think was clearly advertised. I would only recommend to couples that are wanting to get away not for families. Other than that great place!!

Reed College is out in the suburbs. There is a lovely park across the street with the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. You will certainly need some sort of transportation (Uber, rental car, public transit) to get there.

No, unlike many other downtown Portland hotels, they do not charge an amenity or "resort" fee.
