Adequate but nothing so special. It’s past elegance has faded. Switched rooms due to a cigarette smoke smell. Limited and expensive menu in it’s Palm Court.

This was in a great location. Very friendly staff! The valet parking attendants were nice and quick with the car. It was great finding out I had the Expedia VIP upgrade which gave me free valet parking. Parking can be expensive so this was a pleasant surprise! Helpful staff in the lobby! I lost my jacket not knowing exactly where I left it 2 days prior. I asked the wonderful staff in the lobby check in area and they said they’d look into it. When I came back to my hotel room later that day it was found and they brought it to my room! Our waiter was great. We had a child with us and after 10pm they aren’t allowed in the dining area. We were able to eat in the lobby. Our waiter was excellent! Rooms were clean. This hotel had the best mattresses. I slept great! If I’m back in Portland I’ll stay here again.

Stayed 5 nights in Aug 2019
