We chose the Mark Spencer because it is walking distance to the Pearl District and Nob Hill areas. It's been newly remodeled and has a charming vintage Portland feel. This will be our spot every time we come to Portland!

Good hotel for the value minus costly parking, as we had 3 cars. Complintary breakfast could use some hot menu items, with Bacon! I cannot believe you have to have 200 hundred characters to finish this fricken survey!

I can't say enough good things about The Mark Spencer. The quality of the room, the location and the overall value can't be beat. We can't wait to come back to Portland (for the great restaurants) and will definitely make The Mark Spencer our base.

Nicely renovated hotel in not so nice neighborhood. Comfortable and quiet with a very nice breakfast area. I wasn't at the hotel long enough to enjoy other amenities (fitness, wine tasting, tea) but it's an added bonus when a hotel offers these!

Although we were completely rained out on our stay and spent most of the time in our room, it was very relaxing and comfortable. The only downfall I would say is that the coffee machine makes weak coffee and lacks taste. At least it's better than the hotels with the tiny coffee pot in the room.

Stayed here for one night in April. Great location- it's within walking distance from Powell's books and many great restaurants. The check in/out process was a breeze. The room was small but clean and well decorated. The bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have slept in!
