Property was well kept and the amenities were excellent. Front desk staff could have been a little nicer and more helpful as it was my first time in Portland.

Thank you for staying with us and for your feedback. We are sincerely apologetic that the Front Office team was not as warm as they should be. We hope you will come give us another chance!

Pros: friendly staff, great restaurant, decent if basic room, window that opened. Cons: obligatory $27 per night fee for WiFi, gym (no on premises), and game room (booked for private party the night we wanted to use it, $15/visit food credit (you could spend on popcorn, candy and alcohol). Would have preferred that they bake the fee into the per night cost instead of surprising us with the extra nightly fee.

Pam, thank you for staying with us and for your feedback. We do our very best to make sure the nightly amenity fee is presented as a fee for our guests prior to booking rooms. We apologize that the game room was booked for a private event, and hope that the next time you are in town we can show you even more of the amenities that the fee covers.

Great, modern hotel with friendly staff in the downtown area. Restaurant had fantastic food... happy hour! Room was good size and comfy. Only complaint is the room is dark, not enough lighting. But otherwise I would stay here again next time I’m in Portland

The staff was pretentious & unhelpful. The $27 “amenities” fee got us “free” water, WiFi and a pass to the 24 hour fitness down the street. Parking was another $42 per night. In all the additional hidden fees we paid, we could have stayed somewhere else that had a on site fitness facility, a pool, breakfast & a better parking situation.

I'm sorry to hear your stay didn't go as planned. We do keep all our fees very competitive to similar hotels in the city. We do hope that you will give us another chance when you return to the city. Thank you!

Thank you for staying with us and for your feedback. We try to be as transparent as possible regarding the amenity and parking fees and have it posted on several confirmation pages during the booking process. We hope you will come back though to experience the new amenities we are adding regularly to boost our value

Love the hotel, clean and beautiful. The only thing I didn’t like about it was the fees that it was racked up over and over about it. But it was better than the hotel I had in Colorado!
