Stayed here for one night, but I'll definitely be back. Friendly staff, beautiful hotel, wonderful amenities. Very clean and they upgraded our room when we asked to be moved away from the elevator. Wine/cheese tasting was great, too!

This was a great place to stay. They are currently remodeling their rooms and its spectacular. The room I got this time was a suite and well worth the $. I wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy. Great downtown location, had a full service kitchen in the room and free (decent) breakfast in the morning. I've stay here...

Great space with tastefully decorated rooms. I will absolutely stay there again. Cont Breakfast is pretty good; nothing outstanding, but fully serviceable. Rooms are outstanding - great comfy beds and a nice kitchenette.

We stayed at this hotel in the past, and really enjoyed the location and pet-friendly policy. However, it had become pretty tired. The remodel is just fantastic. And the rates are still some of the best in downtown Portland. Check out the Sunday night "stay like a local" package, which we just used ....20% off the room rate, a $15...

Location, comfort, cheerful service. Three "gotta haves" that Mark Spencer Hotel had perfectly. Surrounded by great food options, so very very close to Powell's, and easy walking distance to Scrap PDX. A central location to be met by locals. Best hotel bed ever! nicely proportioned room, too. Staff was uniformly friendly and helpful.

We stayed for one night at the Mark Spencer hotel for the Golden State Warriors vs Portland Trailblazers basketball game. My Husband and I came with our Moms and my Aunt in law.

Nice hotel with spacious comfortable rooms in a great downtown Portland location. We took the train from Seattle to Portland. The hotel is located in easy walking distance from the station, and virtually everything in downtown Portland. Two blocks from the trendy Pearl District for great shopping, restaurants and bars.
