      • Family with children
        7.0

        Conveniently located in the university area of Portland with access to street cars and with on site parking.

        Room was equpied with a fancy coffee maker that was difficult to use. Would have prefered a simple kettle or better still a small microwave

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Close proximity to city center, art museum, psu campus.

      • Single
        7.0

        Cleanliness, good customer service, friendly staff.

        It is very outdated, needs better interior design for the guest rooms.

      • Family with children
        9.6

        Good service, great location, great breakfast in the morning, friendly front desk people.

        No wi-fi in room (only cable connection), no frigde.

      • Family with children
        6.6

        Laundry was virtually inaccessible but once found, worked just fine...

        Floors/carpeting were dirty...$50 Fee to borrow bottle opener from front desk? Really? Must be some lowlifes here before me...

      • Couple
        8.8

        Nice pool and the rooms are spacious and nice. A few blocks from the man part of downtown but easily walkable in about 15 mins.

        The hallways and common areas of the hotel look a little run down but the rooms are nice despite that.

      • Couple
        8.8

        Friendly greeting and assistance.

        No free or easy wi-fi access, having to pay for parking.

      • Single
        8.2

        Nice location, friendly staff, perfectly adequate for a business trip even if not luxurious. Great "continental" breakfast, in fact I think more than continental with 4 hot entrees, fruit, vegetables, sweets

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Good location at south fringe of Seattle central area, in walking distance from public transport. Large comfortable room; buffet breakfast included in price; car parking at additional $12 per day. Good value.

        Breakfast hours (0600- 0900) rather early for vacation travellers.

      • Older travelers
        4.6

        beautiful landscaping

        The room in it. It had no frig or microwave. Carpets were worn out. Continental breakfast was boring. No fan in bathroom

      • Single
        8.0

        The staff was warm, friendly and helpful. The room was large and so was the bathroom. I had a fridge and microwave. It was easy and free getting to downtown via the streecar. The hotel was located among tress and was quiet and safe. I would recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Portland.

        The 24 hour gym

        There was no useful internet access in my room. Wi-fi in the lobby was ok,

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The staff were courteous, friendly, funny, and helpful. The breakfast was surprisingly enclusive.

        We were slightly put off by a stale smell in the second floor hallway.

      • Family with children
        10.0

        The staff was incredibly nice and capable. The location was perfect. The price was right. The breakfast was really good. The beds were very comfortable.

      • Couple
        4.6

        When we checked into our room it was incredibly obvious (without going into too much detail) that the bathroom had not been cleaned. Our initial call to the front desk not only received no apology but also no action. I had to go down and ask again before anything was cleaned. Very disappointing and honestly the hotel should be embarassed.
