Friendliness and accomodation by the staff and overall luxury of facility not applicable
The location and restaurants are Portland favorites. You won't beat either place. However, for the price, the rooms were underwhelming. Not great beds, the rooms are small, there was no bathtub, and there were no curtains to block out all the street light (also the sounds from outside were pretty loud).
great room, excellent restaurant
Good location with included bike rentals. There wasn't AC in the room.
Hotel Rose is what it is: a recently renovated motel. It's clean and comfortable, and staff are friendly. But to call it a four-star hotel is a real stretch, in terms of amenities and service. Compared to other downtown luxury hotels, this is a big step down at the same price. The bathroom is tiny, with outdated fixtures and mold stains. The provided toiletries are cheesy Tommy Bahama brand with an intense pina colada scent that I was a bit embarrassed to smell like all day. The bed only comes with a comforter, strangely folded on top of a bare fitted sheet, so you have to make your own bed. The king bed comes with two of these, each covering half the bed. Just weird. When I asked the front desk for room service to give me a top sheet, I was told I could find one in the closet and to make the bed myself.
Great staff. Clean. Outdated heating system. Was stuck on all night in one of our rooms. No air conditioning. Old bed linens. Frayed sheets.
All was good The blankets were a little confusing..
Clean, cozy (excellent bed!), accommodating staff, and free coffee in the lobby. No complaints!
Very fun and unique place. Great staff. Free bicycles and shuttle services for guests. Complimentary tea and coffee in your room. Located near several bars and restaurants. Will be back. One of the door guys was a little rude. He was short in his responses and seemed bothered by simple questions. Not really a big deal though. Didn't take away at all from my great experience at the hotel. Maybe he was just having a bad day .
Room was comfortable and clean, restaurant was good, and location was extremely convenient to exploring downtown Portland. There is NO soundproofing in this hotel, so bring earplugs (or get some from the front desk). You will hear street noise, river noise, train noise, and TONS of noise from other guests.
Fun location right on the river. Clean, modern hotel with helpful and friendly staff. The great location means that you will hear the noise (sometimes very loud) of an festivities happening on the river.
Loved the duvets. With there was a hot tub. Also, lots of homeless people camped very close to hotel made area less than great for walking around at night.
We stayed two nights for a fun weekend trip. The beds were super comfortable and the location was great! Our favorite part was the bikes they have available for you to take out to explore the city!! We had a blast and would highly recommend this hotel!
Great location, staff super friendly. Parking wasn't expensive but unexpected cost.
It happened to be 100 degrees that day in Portland and my air conditioning in the room went out. They immediately came to my room and while facilities management couldn't fix it they moved me very quickly to new room and one with a better view. I arrived in Portland at 9 am ( I know check in time is 4 pm) but I travel often and it's generally never a problem to get a room by noon. They told me they would call me when a room was ready. I called at 1:30 pm to see what the eta of my room would be. The front desk woman at that time was short and seemed put out when she said "it's ready". Don't offer a call back service if you aren't going to follow through.
Location and staff were great. Flowers were a little pass their time and bathroom needed a little work. Lightning in the bathroom was poor and a magnificent mirror would have been helpful .
Very comfortable bed and staff was quite friendly. Great lobby and building with a ton of character, historic architecture, marble, and classic woodwork. (If you want a sleek, modern, generic place that looks the same as a hotel in any other city, this is not the hotel for you.) My room (1212) was quite small, especially the bathroom. Because I wanted a single large bed and the hotel was pretty full, I think maybe I had that oddball room that most older hotels have that are squeezed into a non-regular space. In this case, it also happened to be near housekeeping, which was noisy in the morning with carts being banged around. The room was fine but smaller than one might expect. The bathroom was ok for me but would have been an issue for someone who spends more time getting ready. There was not even enough room to stand squarely in front of the tiny sink because a bookcase/shelving unit was put on the wall right in the area in front of sink. I had to shave at an odd angle, off to the side of the sink.
Convenient location, short two blocks from the MAX light-rail. Incredibly luxurious room, decent (not spectacular but OK) free internet (could get more speed for more money). Need room key to activate the elevator - an added level of security. Room was a bit dark, could definitely use more lighting or more powerful light bulbs.
Hotel is very old but extremely well kept, it has a kind of regal feel whenever you walk in. Very good service and the location is the best. Just two things: The love seat and chairs in my room looked a little old, not in bad shape or anything, just old. The bathroom light was a little dim.
Easy walking to shopping in downtown and the Pearl district. Close to food carts and beer gardens. 1 block from the Max train.
Everything. Especially the bartender. He is so knowledgeable about scotch, etc. He's wonderful. He the reason we stay there every holiday season. I forget his name but he's been there forever.
Location in the heart of Portland. Great lobby. Staff unhelpful. Reservation was cancelled when it shouldn't have been. Small beds and rooms. Bathrooms just okay. expensive for what you get.
Excellent location near great bars pubs and restaurants
Location was great and allowed us to walk to nearly everything we wanted to do. Lobby bar was amongst the best I've ever been to. Parking was not explained very well, and expensive. The valets ignored us for over 10 min before we drove off and parked in the garage that was less than a block away. Turned out to be the same garage the valet uses, and has a tunnel connected to the hotel. Room was dark due to only having one small window in the corner.
The location is great (close to all the downtown spots). The staff are well-trained and express interest/care. The hotel is dated. The look can be charming. But I don't think that chipped paint, old and over-exposed grout, faded/worn carpets, tough mattresses are part of the decor. Maybe other rooms in the hotel have been updated, but my room was not. I also faced a very load street/area so I would recommend asking for an updated room (if they have any), and for a room in a quiet location.
The lobby alone makes this place worth it. Top notch all around.
Great location, lovely hotel. I really just wanted to get some sleep. There was a lot of street noise, even in the middle of the night. Who knew Portland was so loud?
Tuesday night, December 20, the elevators were so noisy I was deprived of my sleep. Hilton should check the elevators There was construction going on so lobby level elevators were roped off for the evening so guests had to walk up two flights of stairs to gain access to the elevators. It appeared the construction crew was cognizant of cleaning up and they kept the worksite swept. However, on the 20th floor the glass table near the elevator looked as though it hadn't been dusted in several days. There was enough dust to write ones name on the glass! On a positive note, the employees at the front desk were very helpful at check in.
the staff was lovely and very helpful. No fans in the bathroom, views were weak, sauna and steam room was in the other building, which I found annoying.
Great location Great staff Clean Overpriced valet parking Self parking across the street Rooms similar to cheaper budget hotels outside of downtown
excellent customer service. very accommodating. Extremely loud - the room above us and the people next door were very loud.
Hotel is always wonderful. Due to snow and ice storm I had to cancel. The hotel was fine with it. It was within their 24 hours. Unfortunately, the company I used on kayak stated I would have needed to cancel on the same date that I reserved!!!!! Are you kidding me? Don't reserve through them. They do not care what terms the hotel has.
The beds were very comfortable, clean space, (small) but functional bathroom. The gym was *great*, large and definitely had everything I needed to lift weights and do cardio, including a small room with mirrors. It's also very centrally located, and easy to bus to and from, which is one of the best aspects of the hotel. I definitely didn't realize there was no complimentary breakfast, and they gave us two full beds instead of a single queen (which is what we reserved).
The young lady at the front desk was excellent. First I go to the wrong Hilton which is across the street she checks me in anyway. Then my wife and I come down the look around your city. And there she is at the front desk. She gives us great directions and great suggestions. Blonde with glasses. Loved it all
The location of this hotel is very convenient for downtown activities and proximity to suggested things to do in Portland. The lobby and bar area are very nice. The work-out gym is also very good. While the Hilton is very convenient, there are some problems with this hotel compared to other hotels in this class. While free parking is not included, there is pay-to-park available from the hotel, but the hotel charges twice as much as the parking garage that is just around the corner(price gouging is not okay.) When I tried to ask staff about the private parking garage, they did everything they could to talk me out of it. Don't pay the excessive Hilton parking charge. I am finding that most hotels these days provide free internet in the rooms and in the lobby. I travel and stay at world-class hotels at least twice a month. So I broke down and paid for the premium internet access at the Hilton. It was far from premium. Not the slowest I have ever seen, but close to it. Also, at this level of hotel, I would expect all the rooms to have charging facilities for electronic devices. Sad to say, but the technical comfort of the room was anything but hi-tech!!
No exercise facility on premis. No in room water. Breakfast is no available before 6:30 am.
I was almost finished checking in when I was told that there would be a $25 early check-in fee.
Great location. It's was nice and clean. The staff are friends The room we stayed at is a standard king room. It's tiny. It think it meant for one traveler. My husband and I feel so cramped in it. No free Wifi in the room, only in the lobby.
Loved the quality of customer service, food, and location. I didn't like paying $5.00 for a travel size bottle of hairspray?
They could do themselves a lot of favors by improving their bedding, especially the pillows. We both had a lousy night's sleep.
The quirky decor and the friendliness of the staff. Everything was fine. No complaints.
From the moment we checked in and throughout our stay the staff went above and beyond to ensure that our every need was met. Incredible customer service and amenities.
We loved this hotel. Luxurious bed, gorgeous decor and details, accommodating staff and reasonable rates- we will be back!! $42 for overnight parking was silly overpriced.
The coffee was out before 5:00AM...excellent for an early riser. Running maps were sweet. Complimentary adult bevs in the living room...how relaxing!
The hotel was excellent, and the staff went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The room was large and comfortable, with very nice toiletries provided in the spacious bathroom. The location is perfect, down the street from food trucks, great restaurants, and only a short walk to great tax-free shopping. We will definitely consider staying here again. Our room had a slight odor of dogs / animals. This should be somewhat expected in a pet-friendly hotel, and is only really noticeable once you walk in the room. All-in-all, this was a minor gripe and will not deter us from staying here again.
Friendly staff; fun, funky decor; nicely situated downtown; and one of the best workout facilities I've seen for a hotel this size (a few elliptical machines, weights, cable machines, pull up bar, etc.). The parking is expensive, and works out to be a hidden cost: $26 per day, or $41 if you leave your car overnight.
The receptioni staff were excellent. They upgraded our room after we told them of our vacation from hell just a month earlier. The location was perfect for us. It is close to the business area, the college and some of Portland best food. Loved it and would stay again.
Great location. Bar was awesome! Have a "bee's knees"! Because I used the door knocker that said I didn't need sheets and towels changed, no one ever came to my room to take the garbage or give us more TP, etc. thankfully there was an extra roll in the room. And one of the valet guys was rude to my uber driver when she came to pick us up. It was uncalled for.
Couldn't be more helpful, great location and great price for luxury stay
Bed was comfortable. Room was clean. Location was excellent. Valet service an absolute disaster. Front desk unable to give good rec's on what to do and where to eat.
Very comfortable room in lovingly restored late nineteenth century building, with excellent restaurant attached. Extremely good value for money.
Beautiful building, excellent location near the Pearl District. Loads of cool shops, restaurants, and breweries nearby. Hotel lent us bikes! Pricey but not out of line for area hotels.
The location is great, and the service is spectacular!
Great hotel,centrally located,free public transport close to several good quality restuarants noisey air conditioning
Have stayed there before and the Hotel is lovely. Bit of a remodel going on, but it's not intrusive. Service is attentive and Portland-friendly. The parking charge of $36 overnight is usurious; we had to park two cars and when asked if they would comp one of them due to our circumstances, they refused. This will cause me to stay someplace else next time.
The staff and location were excellent. Room furniture was too large fore size of room.
Very comfortable room, old luxury style, very friendly staff No view, single elevator
Good renovation of an old hotel. No pool.
People at Kimpton hotels are amazing across the board but we found the team at The Vintage to be especially kind and caring. From the front desk staff to the bartenders we had great conversations with each person we met and that made it feel so welcoming. We'll definitely be going back.
Room, hotel, staff, service, awesomeness Single ply toilet paper
Liked the style of the hotel lobby and rooms. Actual size of the room was tiny and way overpriced.
The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean and spacious. The staff was courteous and helpful. The fitness center was disappointing in size and equipment available. It reminded me of fitness centers in 2 & 3 star hotels. On line it said there was a coffee/shop and bakery at the hotel and there were none. Online it also implies there was a spa but there was not. The front desk clerk said they could call someone off site to come to our room. One tiny window in the room. Paid approx $350 a night. Way too expensive for what it was.
Great central "home base" location for a portland vacation. Almost everything we wanted to see or do was walkable from here. The room had a great view, room was clean, staff was friendly, and they had a phenomenal gym that is open 24 hours! Would definitely stay here again on my next visit. Nothing!
everything STAFF WAS GREAT Its all good
The downtown area with its abundance of drug addicted folks is really a downer. Westin has this wonderful hotel on the edge of some serious scurge. I lived in NYC, I'm not so soft, but it might keep me from going back. The hotel is lovely, all the same.
Great location, friendly and courteous staff Bed had recessed holes and sloped down from foot to head. No included breakfast. Parking options limited. Included internet service is very slow.
The staff is very friendly, knowledgable and helpful. They have excellent advice on fun excursions. I also liked the bathroom had a separate bathtub and the spacious shower had a rainfall shower head The bed was not as comfortable as other Westin beds, The mattress and sheets needs replacing. The towels in the bathroom were also old and rough.
Comfortable rooms, staff was excellent. Would be nice to have a pool
The location. Also it was clean. But not worth the price. They did the bait and switch when we got there. I paid for a deluxe room with a view and they gave me a standard room claiming they ran out of deluxe rooms. also forgot my request for additional towels and a blanket and when I asked for it at the desk they delivered the blanket but no towels...
The location was the best & staff were very attentive and helpful. Our room was very nice and the bed was extremely comfortable. Most of the hotels, including the Westin are on busy streets so sometimes the noise factor can be a problem but inside the hotel we had very little noise on our floor.
Very clean and tastefully appointed. A great place to decompress. Nothing
The staff gives you a lot of their time, professional and helpful, and most are friendly. The room was beautifully appointed, very comfortable for one person, and I was happily upgraded to a street view of the Starlight Parade. Unfortunately the ground floor was undergoing renovations, which had I known I would have booked elsewhere.
They upgraded my room when my original room wasn't ready on check in, and they sent a complimentary bottle of champagne to my room because it was my 21st birthday! Hotel was quite expensive for the size of the rooms
centerally located with a daily beer hour where you can grab free beer Rooms are some of the smallest that I've stayed at with very thin walls. Expect to hear your neighbors using the bathroom...
Friendly Bartending Staff at Imperial.
Wish we would have known they were doing construction on the lobby. It was noisy so they should have given us something extra for the trouble
The location is great. You're close to plenty of great restaurants, museums and late night spots. The staff is very friendly and professional. The rooms are comfortable and include nice touches like USB ports on the lamps and recycling bins. And you get free beer every night. The rooms are a bit small, so you might want to upgrade to the larger rooms when you book. No closet space.
Classy place and Beer happy hour were amazing. Room size was a little small.
Absolutely the best location. Easy to travel to any part of portland, 5 minute walk from Powell's City of Books. Really nice staff, really nice valet, decent gym, decent facilities. Room is clean and cozy. Not a great view but it doesn't really matter since you can access the parts of the city with a great view within 10-15 minutes. Valet is a bit pricey. No view from our window, but it didn't bother me much.
Big room, nice tv, very comfortable beds, good friendly service Bathroom was a bit on the small side. All of the food and other assortments were VERY overpriced. Maid also came in without announcing herself. Sheets had some crumbs on them when we came in.
Staff attentive to requests and very personable! Everything was super clean.
The hotel was great. Location was easy, the room was beautiful, and the staff were friendly. The french press in the room was a perfect touch and the corner view was perfect. Check in and out was incredibly quick and easy. Really a great staff. The walls were paper thin! Twice we had a grumpy neighbor come and bang on our adjacent door telling us to quiet down. first time we were enjoying some wine and we did get in a bit late, so understandable. The second night we were simply watching a movie at 8pm. Ridiculous thing to deal with considering how much we payed to stay there. In the mornings when they woke up I could hear them arguing over itineraries and even zipping up their luggage. Careful those walls are THIN!! This was the executive king room.
Although room was located on the 6th floor, the continuous noise from a generator on the ground floor was so loud it ruined our sleep and stay
The location of the Heathman is in the heart of downtown Portland and close to everything. The amenities are plenty and the dinner restaurant room service is excellent. We stayed in the Oregon Symphony suite and the decor is amazing with plenty of extras. In room French press coffee is a great touch. Customer service is excellent and the staff is sure to make your stay memorable. The late night food service menu could stand to have more choices.
Loved the attention to detail and the French Press coffee in the room. My husband did not like the fitness room. Too small and only one option for weights.
Quiet, comfortable centrally located hotel with friendly helpful staff and a nice convivial atmosphere
restaurant was great. Room was clean and comfortable.
View, cleanliness, roominess, service Bed hurt my back (not normal), loud jacuzzi, TV channel surfing was a bit awkward.
The hotel grounds are beautiful, the location is great, and the jacuzzi in my room was HEAVEN. Great stay. I'll be back!
Great location. Can't beat it. Quality was great. Staff was great and extremely helpful (except doorman). Would definitely recommend. Doorman were terrible. Never opened the door once for us. Three of them just stood there and watched my wife and I open the door ourselves. I have no problem opening doors, but whats the point of having three doorman if they don't do anything. Minor detail. Just thought it was funny. Not a hard job.
Beds were very comfortable. Staff was very attentive. Easy walking to places. Very clean. Great stay over all. Toilet stopped up twice but staff were right on it when notified.
Great room, staff and location! We will be back!
Located in downtown near the Pearl District. A little cramped for space. Bathroom outdated.
From booking to check out, was a wonderful experience for our first time in Portland, A very clean and unique room from design to the pictures on the wall. The staff was very polite and helpful with all of our needs and requests. we will be staying at the Mark Spencer again. soon Nada
They love dogs and that made us happy! Room was beautiful! We were right next to the elevator and that was super convenient for our dog needs but we could hear the elevator open and close all night which was annoying. Not much you can do about that though.
For our first trip to Portland, this hotel had a prime location for when we did our tours across town. Given the area, it never took much time to get to and from, and to keep busy with all the opportunities available. While the hotel staff were friendly, and our room and other amenities were fine, we did get placed in a room next to major construction going on in the rooms next door. Buzz saws at 9:00 in the morning is not something I find appealing about my hotel stay. We stayed for three nights, two mornings. The first morning, I was up early and did not make a fuss. The second morning, the noise was too much to bare. I called the front desk and was offered a room change, but since we were leaving very early the next day, the inconvenience outweighed the option. I understand hotels go through modifications, but my preference would have been for the staff to have enough foresight and not placed anyone in the hall, let alone the room right next to major construction.
Its been awhile since I have stayed at Marc Spencer but the renovations are amazing. My roomwas on the first floor that used to be mini suites a long time ago. I was lucky to have a room with a view of the stage for this year's pride block part . Was a blast! I'll definetly be coming back! The only thing wrong was I wish I could've stayed more than one night :-(
The staff was extremely helpful, and very accommodating. We got upgraded to a larger bed, and was also offered help for dinner options and entertainment every night. They even have a small kitchenette, if your trying to save a little money on food. The roof garden wasn't open yet, that was the only bummer. Just means we will have to come back in the summer!
We discussed the problem with the room temp 5 times and until 8 pm on our last night did the desk person tell us it was not turned on. This was not very good for us. Our room was newly renovated.
Perfect location for wandering around. The room was spacious and bed was comfy. We would stay again!
The hotel is clean, convenient and quiet. I stayed here probably 15 or 20 years ago and it has been substantially cleaned up, renovated, and remodeled. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast buffet and other food serving is great. It's a great value for a great hotel at a great location. Highly recommended. They are doing a little construction now (February 2014) so if you need to sleep during the day, you might want to pick another hotel.
construction. very old building. lights didn't work in room.
Great location. Comfortable bed. Quiet. Clean. Pretty shabby. Tiny tiny room. Weird space. Seems like a very old property that needs to be updated.
Loved the location to see and do things in Portland. Easy to walk to shopping, restaurants, riverfront.
We originally weren't planning on staying in a hotel in our short visit to Portland but I'm glad we did. Courtyard was such a great steal! The Location was great, walking distance to just about everything. The price wasn't even bad considering we booked last minute. The hotel was super clean and had a very luxurious feel to it! We really didn't stay long enough to find anything we didn't like so I assume that's a good thing overall!
Boyfriend and I visited Portland for the weekend. The hotel was very presentable, in a great location (5 minute walk to most restaurants we went to) and a short drive to everywhere else. The hotel was clean, room and bed was comfortable and staff was friendly! We were in a corner room on the 9th floor, so the room was in a weird shape, not necessarily bad, but just to note. There was a bright hallway light that shone through under the door - had to cover it with pillows. There was no view, our one window literally opened up to a wall.
We were in th middle of things downtown and could walk to iconic Portland places.
Easy check in, friendly staff, central location. A little loud, even though I asked for a quiet room.
Location, price, customer service No pool or hot tub, small lobby
Staff answered questions about directions Blake
Location was great. Restaurant located downstairs is convenient and good also has a full bar stock, I was able to order a beer and walk it up my room. Hotel staff very attentive. Need room card to have elevator cars access your floor which is safe. Can't really say what o didn't like, spent most of my time out of hotel. I did pay $6 for coconut water at the lobby market, a bit pricey o would say. I didn't have a car rental but valet is $35.
The location was fantastic. The staff was friendly. The rooms were very clean and well furnished.
Nice service, good looking hotel for the money. Clean and spacious. Nice bar. Good location. We had a particularly bad room. bottom floor, next to housekeeping, handicap accessible. Parking seemed a little outrageous--we parked down the street
Get 24 hour room service
The hotel was beautiful. Had to wait till almost 7 PM to check in due to rooms not being cleaned. Horrible experience
Very nice atmosphere and the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. It seemed like everyone was in a great mood. The facilities were also very clean and luxurious.
Great deal for the money. Very comfy bed. All the amenities I need. Wish the window opened or there was a patio or something.
Beautiful room and the location was great for walking around downtown even in the snow. Very nice staff, especially the doorman who was always very friendly and helpful. The front desk was very helpful in getting us to the airport on a very snowy/icy morning. The food at the restaurant wasn't great but the wait staff was very nice.
not much to like about this place. The hotel is outdated and is in need of upgrade. Not the friendliest staff at front desk. talked like robots reading from a script. You dont get much for the amount you pay for nightly stay. The internet is not included and you have to pay extra to use in the room. The place is centrally located in downtown Portland, so if you're there for business in downtown area, I guess it would be okay, but for leisure, its not the best place to stay. It didnt seem very safe to be out after dark, and not too many places are open late. A lot of panhandlers roam the streets around the hotel.
Staff No cell reception. Pricey
