I stayed here for a business trip and I could not have been happier. The room was comfortable and surprisingly dark and night... and quiet. I was expecting to have the city lights and noise but I did not. All the staff was friendly and helpful. I hope to stay here again.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a wedding recently. The hotel is clean, rooms are nothing special but what you would expect for a courtyard. However, beyond room costs, prices are outrageous. If you want breakfast, parking, and internet, expect to pay an extra $70 a day on top of the daily rate.

Great downtown location. The hotel staff were friendly and fast at check in. They were nice to allow for a late check out when asked. The room was clean, quiet and very comfortable. This would be a hotel I would definitely consider next time in Portland.
