This downtown hotel has a lot of history. Built in 1912 as the Multnomah Hotel, it offers a majestic lobby when you enter the hotel. The staff is quick to help out if you need something. The suites are spacious and the bed is outstanding. My one and only complaint is the hot water. Apparently you should take a shower early in the morning because at 10:00am you will only have lukewarm water.

CITY VIEW RIGHT

Over all the place is nice BUT DO NOT PAY THEUPGRADE FOR CITY VIEW BECAUSE WHAT YOU GET IS A VIEW OF THE PARKING GAGARGE WHICH IS TALLER THAN THE HOTEL! When I checked out I was asked about my stay and I expressed my displeasure with paying an extra 20-30 dollars for city view and I didn't get one. The reply I got was the hotel used to be the biggest in the city now its not. Other than that I think that for 200 a night they could throw in Wi Fi

Classy and Easy

Chose this hotel for the location and price at the time. A little more classic than some of the "hipper" places in the area and the cliental skewed older. The free cafeteria style breakfast in the morning was appreciated.

Location is Everything

The hotel was convenient, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was complimentary and such a treat. It was cafeteria style and all you can eat. There was even a complimentary beer and wine happy hour at the end of the day. The location was a bit sketchy. Just 2 blocks over is the Burnside bridge which is pleasantly known as skid row. In the other direction is a rather lovely cultural area with quiet brownstone buildings and art and history museums. Parking was expensive and you get charged every time you leave the lot. Plan on leaving the car there and using public transportation. Valet is also a better option.

Great Portland Hotel

I had an excellent stay at this hotel. The staff, everyone from the front desk staff, maids, breakfast servers and valet parking attendants, were professional, friendly and accommodating. I am extremely particular about room cleanliness and this Embassy Suites in downtown Portland came close to receiving a perfect score. The room was extremely comfortable, nicely decorated but the view out my window was a rooftop (and noisy) HVAC system. On the other hand, the morning breakfast was excellent - and even included healthy alternatives to eggs, bacon and pastries (yes, they scrambled egg whites for me and had low-fat yogurt!) When I visit Portland, I like staying downtown, as it is central to all of the neighborhoods that I like. The parking charges (valet) seem a bit high and although there is a slightly cheaper self-park option in a building across the street, I didn't feel safe parking and walking in/out of the building alone. None-the-less, I highly recommend this hotel.

Weekend trip

The hotel was clean, however the staff wasn't helpful and unable to provide information. The pool and hot tub were undergoing renovation so not open the majority of our stay which was frustrating. The night reception was very nice, as was the breakfast. The location was amazing

Perfect Stay for My First Visit to Portland

This was the combination of perfect location & comfort for my first visit to Beautiful Portland Oregon. Great suite, very nicely appointed, comfortable and safe. The staff were fantastic, very professional & helpful. The only downside to my stay was the free breakfast. If you want a great breakfast, visit the Bijou Cafe across the street. Ideal place to stay for a weekend get away, I couldn't have been happier.

The Breakfast at Mothers Bistro is worth the visit. A short four blocks away, the wait is worth it. Try Mama Mia's for dinner & Voodoo Doughnut is right around the corner.
