Most of the time when I travel, I stay at Marriott Courtyards, not even Marriotts. So when I was able to book a stay here with my family through a generous discount which my daughter's company negotiated, I was excited. I'd heard from a friend about this place. Overall, a fabulous stay. Comfortable rooms, pretty quiet... plenty of amenities including...

I stayed here with friends for two nights. The desk and valet staff were very nice and helpful. The rooms smelled a bit musty, but otherwise were very nice. The lobby sitting area is gorgeous. We asked housekeeping to come back in a half hour to clean the room Saturday morning, but when we returned late Saturday night, they had...

I loved staying in this hotel. I reserved one night here when I felt the need to flee the last night of a conference at Reed College. (Conference was great, but at my age I can only handle a dorm with shared showers and loud folks for so long). The lobby of this boutique hotel is both lovely and hip....

We stayed at the Kimpton and arrived without a reservation. We had just missed the complimentary wine tasting hour, but were offered a bottle of wine and asked if our kids would like goldfish brought up to our room. The front desk was also really helpful with suggestioned locations for dinner. The room itself had personality and was comfortable. They...

I booked this hotel due to the proximity to a work conference I was attending. I stayed a few days to play, since I live on the east coast and had not experienced all that Oregon had to offer before. The staff were knowledgable about the area and gave great recommendations. The wine reception held each night allowed a single...
