What a great place. Well trained, friendly staff. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Well located within ten minutes to any part of the city. Restaurant was opened late and still serving full menu. Will visit again when I go back to Portland.

Pros: close to convention center, modern, both the rooms and lobby were very clean, valet parking was cheap. Cons: - It took 15+ minutes to check in even though we had reservations - Even though we booked months prior, they were unable to book our two rooms on the same floor as we requested.

My wife and I spent last week at the Crown Plaza. We were there for the World Parkinson's Congress being held in the Oregon Convention Center - a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

We didn't stay here but I was here 3 days for a conference. Unbelievably pleasant, courteous and professional staff. Outstanding catering for breakfasts.

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza for 2 nights. Trolley is on same block. Walking to esplanade is a bit difficult due to construction. Staff was friendly, concierge helped sort out problems. The bar and restaurant are decent.
