An excellent hotel that has become a mainstay for my frequent trips to Portland. Professional and caring staff, beautifully appointed rooms, and convenient check-in and check-out, I feel at home here and in good hands.

The history sells the place, the renovations will update the venue, but I personally think they need more space for clothing. Otherwise, this was a nice place to stay, and I can see going back. It was centrally located, had a great restaurant next door...More

Service was everyone was excellent - immediate and friendly - particularly in the lobby Palm Court restaurant. There are nearby parking garages but we used the valet parking for convenience which was worth the extra $40 a day to us.

I was very impressed with this hotel. The hotel is old but the rooms are updated and very clean. The staff throughout the hotel were very hospital. The fitness room is a bit cramped but updated cardio machines are pleasant.

Reed College is out in the suburbs. There is a lovely park across the street with the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. You will certainly need some sort of transportation (Uber, rental car, public transit) to get there.
