Dog Friendly!!!

Dog friendlu hotel! I would recommend this hotwl to all friends travel with their pets. Also, the location is great. Peral district, food truck, Powell bookstore and a lot of good restaurants are within walking distance. You don’t even need to drive once you check in.

Rooms are very small and overpriced

We spent a couple of nights here and were very disappointed. The rooms are very small and so are the bathrooms. That bathroom also smelled a bit musty and my wife is very sensitive to that. The $35.00 valet parking fee also added to the cost – no other choice. Also, this is not the best area of town – too many homeless, vagrants and drug addicts. There is are better areas and better places to stay in to downtown Portland.

A Classic!

Grand old hotel in city center! Walking distance to dining, entertainment and shopping .
Beautiful lobby..check out the ceiling and the chandeliers! Great staff and all amenities available in room, coffee machine with Starbucks coffee. Room in the back with no specific view but veey quiet. All in all a pleasant stay.

A landmark itself

The place where presidents stay. Great location and great rooms, which super comfortable beds. It is on the higher prive end but worth it. Especially the rooms on the 12th floor have a great view over the city

Not worth it

I booked a room for $320.00 a night.The room was very small and a queen bed.They only have valet parking for $35.00 night.We parked are car in a parking garage across the street.Within two hours are car window had been broken out and not much stolen.By the next morning 6 more cars were broken into.The sercurity guard said this happens every night in all the parking areas there.Lots of homeless people and lots of drugs in this area of town.
