Reviewed 8 March 2014

My husband and I stayed here for business. This hotel is conveniently located to the downtown district and you can catch the streetcar in front of the hotel. The breakfast is complimentary and good. The coffee in the room and at the buffet is terrible. The rooms are very clean and the front desk was professional. The extra linens were...

Dear flosser2014, Thank you for taking the time to complete a review. We are currently looking at switching coffee providers. I understand when you travel to Portland, you expect great coffee and a great microbrew, we are famous for those two things. It is a long time coming, but we are working on it. I do apologize for the additional...

I stayed here on a Monday night and was blown away with the service my boyfriend and I received. Front desk was always extremely friendly and helpful with questions I had. I was impressed with our room and the complimentary buffet style breakfast that was way more than your usual continental breakfast, it had many options, our bellies left happy!...

All in all its a very good place to stay and I would recommend it. I give it 4 1/2 stars. The hotel is in good shape and is very clean. The cleaning staff does a great job.

I stayed here for business for 3 nights. The breakfast was excellent, tons of options. They even had wheat bagels, which is really uncommon for a hotel breakfast. I wish the weather would have been better during my stay, I didn't get to really look around the area. I did see that there is a streetcar stop in front of...

We stayed here one night on our way up from San Francisco to Vancouver BC. Wished we had more time and could stay longer. We stayed in a 2 bedrooms suite and it was so spacious. We could easily have stayed here a year and still not feel crowded. The rooms were clean and well appointed. Even though the hotel...

I stayed here for one night this past weekend with two of my kids -ages 9 and 5. When we arrived, the front desk gal was very friendly. She apologized as she took a quick call from one of the rooms during our check in. It was evident, from her end of the conversation, that the guest was unhappy about...

This is a newer Residence Inn and is very nice. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very helpful. They have a large breakfast area which is really needed in Residence Inns. The location is right downtown which is convenient.

We stayed four nights in, Dec 28/13 to Jan 02/14 in room 821. As soon as we opened the door, my heart sank. Before us was a bleak, tiny room with an odor reminiscent of cat urine. The room was tiny, the furniture (what there was of it) worn and shabby. One wall of the living room was completely bare,...

We have stayed at this property twice, while I attended conferences in Portland, in May of 2013 and in summer of 2011. Both times we have taken our family with us.

Dear Sarah K, Thank you for being a loyal guest at our hotel. Our Riverfront location does mean that many bridges are also in view but the triple-pane windows are the secret that allow our guests to rest quietly! I agree that our indoor pool is one of our best amenities and I'm glad to know that you and the...

Reviewed 1 January 2014

When we drove up to the hotel we were excited that it looked like a nice, newer facility. While the place seems to be maintained well, it felt worn out a bit, especially our room. Perhaps our expectations were too high for the property, but we felt that the hotel was nice, but nothing special. In addition, while the breakfast...
