I was in Portland for a work trip and they booked me at the Mark Spencer Hotel. I travel often and am rarely impressed with a hotel. Well I must admit I was impressed. The hotel is in a great location within walking distance to many good restaurants. The room was not only large but well decorated and had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on in a hotel. It had a true large tv which was nice to be able to watch tv from the bed without having to squint. The room was really great. It was more like a little apartment than a hotel room and was tastefully decorated. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat on my next trip.

Great location. Suite and closet were small. Only one nightstand for a king bed. No dressers in room so unable to unpack suitcase ( we were there for a week). Rooms were clean and updated. Friendly and helpful staff.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

We certainly hope to have the chance to host you again, and provide you with a much better experience next time around. Thank you for your kind words regarding our staff as well. We will be sure to share your comments with our team.

Wanted a good location for a three day getaway with an old friend. We found the perfect place. Everything was perfect from the staff to the comfort and quietness of the room to the complimentary wine tasting every afternoon. Would stay again for sure.

An older property (that means thick brick walls that keep the noise at bay!) that has all the modern amenities you'd expect: comfortable bed, instant thermostat control, great shower; expanded continental breakfast, Wi-Fi, wine in the evenings... and, still, there is more. Great location, attentive staff. I look forward to my next trip to Portland as I now know exactly where to stay.

We recently stayed at the Mark Spencer Hotel for 2 nights and we were very comfortable there. It is an older hotel but the location is wonderful, the room was comfortable, the staff is very helpful, and they have cookies, wine and cheese tastings, and breakfast served on the prmises. Overall we were very happy and would stay there again if back in Portland.
