Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by katoblue Clean, convenient, good location
We chose this hotel mainly because of its location - very near the interstate so easy to find (we were unfamiliar with Portland) and handy as it is just a short walk to the shopping area of Nob Hill which is a lovely area of Portland and only a short streetcar ride from the city centre.
The room was comfortable and quiet. We appreciated the free breakfast, nothing fancy but adequate.
It would be good if they had safes in the rooms. The info said you could use a lockbox at the front desk to store your valuables, which we did, but when we went to ask for the lockbox facility the desk clerk looked at us in bewilderment, like no one ever asked for this! He had to call a colleague to find the lockbox for us.
The only real complaint is that there was only one elevator which was the SLOWEST elevator in the USA - quite a few people were choosing to use the stairs rather than wait for it. If they updated their elevator it would be good. Otherwise the hotel is fine if you just need someone clean and convenient to stop over in Portland. I'd stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Leisure_Traveler General Comments
The location was really great, just a short walk to a great restaurant district and access to one of the hop on/hop off tour bus stops.
I hated the rather large (I thought) cost premium for the mid-week portion of my stay.
NOTE: Two comments that can be made in general for ALL of the stays in my current trip, which may or may not apply to a specific property (Unfortunately, I didn’t take notes), which made for a more/less enjoyable experience:
1. Some of the alarm clocks provided are extremely difficult to set; instructions are difficult to understand
2. Not enough electrical outlets bedside and at the provided desk. I have a medical machine that I must plug in at night, and there are not always outlets available with a clock and a bedside lamp installed. Not all bedside lamps are of the newer type, having at least one outlet in its base. The same could be said of the desk, where there are not enough outlets for laptops, phone chargers, etc.
