The staff is extremely friendly. hotel rooms are clean and beautifully remodeled and in a great location. Near Powell Books, food trucks and VooDoo Donuts - all must sees in Portland. Wine Tasting and afternoon cookies and tea along with breakfast in the morning all are great perks! Best hotel in Portland!!

Can you imagine that it didn't rain in Portland? Stayed May 19 - 21, 2017. Mark Spencer Hotel was recently remodeled and still has some remodeling going on. Our room looked towards another building which was alright with us. Quiet, very clean, nice towels, nice sheets. Employees very helpful on locations in downtown Portland. Hotel is located less than 2...

The overall experience at the Mark Spencer was superb. Small, well located hotel with caring and friendly staff. Nice sized room at a reasonable rate, clean. Better yet, the room had a separate living area, allowing for one person to be up reading while the other slept.

We had a room on the 5th floor facing SW 11th Avenue. Ours had a king bed with a sitting area, a kitchenette and a nice little bathroom. It is...

We stayed here one night, spur of the moment, after and Amtrak train delay and it was just right. The first room we were assigned had drapes that did not close (they were new) and they upgraded us to a suite which was nice. The facilities are recently refurbished with comfortable firm bed, cushy towels and fairly quiet given the...

The location was perfect for walking to many Portland areas. The hotel was clean and the employees were friendly. The amenities were wonderful- excellent breakfast, fun wine and cheese hour and it was nice to have a cookie in the afternoon. The staff was helpful with recommendations and tips.
