Great hotel ! The only minus : breakfast , totally disappointing. The restaurant was accommodating for lunch and dinner but not for the simplest meal of the day. We had to drive to restaurant near by for breakfast 4 out of 5 mornings … very inconvenient. One of the reason for choosing this hotel was, that breakfast was there. But other than that hotel was amazing!!!

Hello Ewa. Thank you very much for taking the time out of your day to share your experience with us. We greatly appreciate your kind rating, as well as your feedback. Breakfast is typically one of our shining points, as we are one of the only hotels with a complimentary cook-to-order breakfast. I understand that this was an important piece for you staying with us, and I sincerely apologize that we fell short of our own expectations. If there is anything I can do to help make it right for you, please don't hesitate to reach out. We'd love the opportunity to help earn your business back for future visits.

Breakfast was 20 min late and incomplete (no OJ), and gravy was not good

Hello, and thank you for sharing your experience with me. I'm sorry, I would reach out to you directly on this one, however you are listed as "anonymous". I understand that with having a complimentary breakfast, the expectation is that it is on time and complete. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, and will work with the restaurant team to ensure better timeliness and quality. If you receive this response, please reach out to me as I would be more than happy to talk it over and see if there is anything we can do to help make it right for you.

Very new and modern. Located in a safe neighborhood, not on a busy street. No noise at all. Located right on the river with balconies. Great mattress snd furnishings. Best hotel I have ever stayed at. Wish there were more!

Thank you so much for your kind words, and for being our guest! We love our designer a ton, and think she did an exceptional job keeping us boutique and modern. One of the really cool things that you mention is our solitude.. Since we're just a few feet from the river itself, there are no roads or anything blocking the serenity of the peaceful Willamette just outside our front doors. Thanks again for being our guest, and we look forward to hosting you again soon.
