Rude front desk staff

The location and hotel room itself were great, but I had a bad experience when trying to check in. I waited till the 2pm check in even though I arrived slightly early. I got to the desk and the staff told me that there weren't any rooms available. With no explanation. I had pre paid for the room, so I was pretty frustrated with that. She said she would let house keeping know I was waiting. I'm a patient person, so I sat down in the lobby. I then saw two other people check in with no problems. That was after I waited 20 minutes.. I got up and asked the staff again what the problem was. She then talks to a coworker and like magic, a room became available. I still have no clue what the problem was. I would've been more understanding if they at least were honest and let me that my reservation was messed up or something. I won't be going back.

Portland Trailblazers Game Trip

First we had to upgrade with signing up for the hotel rewards program, then the room was small but the view was good. The shower/tub didn't fully flush or drain the water. The ceiling has some fixtures that needed attention. The heater vent stained the ceiling where the heat was coming out from. I paid some good amount of money for this hotel and yet the tub couldn't drain the water at a fast and proper rate. I had to wait for more than 10 minutes for it to drain. Although the hotel was convenient to the Moda Center for the basketball game, we traveled from Tacoma, WA and it is about 2.5 hours.

Overnight getaway

This was perfectly located for our Portland getaway and concert at the Moda Center. The room was very clean and very comfortable although a bit odd shaped! We ate in the in house restaurant after a late concert and the staff were very friendly and attentive. We would stay here again next time we are in Portland.

Time with Dad

Dad and I enjoyed the hotel. The best part was the location. We wanted quick access to downtown and the East side of the River. check in was easy as was check out. I enjoyed using the fitness center. We both had a pretty good night's sleep and a tasty breakfast the next morning. The staff was wonderful.

The hotel was over all good . You did have to pay for parking which I think is totally ridiculous . Also the room service was prompt although I would not recommend getting the pizza or crab cakes . Gross to say the least . Very close to the stadium .

Great price for the quality

This hotel is clean, classy, and comfortable. This is the price you'd pay for a cheap hotel but the quality is of a 5 star hotel. This is where I stay when I come to portland. I've stayed in more expensive hotels that had way less quality.

Great Northwest

I travel to Portland to visit my son. I was very pleased with the Crowne Plaza. It is a truly beautiful hotel and offered many amenities including a Hertz rental car office which made it very easy for us to rent a car at a very good price. I would recommend this hotel to anyone as it is located well and is very friendly and very nice. Also it was not too big which i think is a Plus. When I return to Portland I will surely stay there.

New Years Stay.

Front desk staff great. New years eve bar and restaurant staff great. Morning breakfast food crabcakes were old and dry and less than desireable. At $16.50 you'd think they'd be a lot better and our sever was also unattentive. After an $89.00 bfast bill and lack of service we definitely changed plans to watch a huge bowl game elsewhere.
