We picked the hotel due to the location and price. We were happily surprised at how nicely decorated the room was, the view of the city and the shower was lovely. The wine hour was great -lovely local wines and some cheese and crackers. The parking was super easy. Being Portlanders it was a super fun location to go out...

I really enjoyed how this hotel tried to accommodate us the best they could. They looked at the details of our trip and stay and proceeded to take extra care. I know that they cannot always give these luxuries for free, depending on circumstance, but they took time to enhance the small details on our trip. The staff took time...

Arrived on a business trip and was very happy with the location and amenities at this hotel. The staff were friend. The breakfast spread was a little sparse, but I didn't book this hotel for the breakfast. Many amazing restaurants in walking distance, and the Passport is a great touch.

Room was very comfortable. Would be great if the garage had electric vehicle charging stations so folks could charge their vehicles before leaving. Staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. We would stay again if we were in the downtown area for any reason.

First, I have to say how fabulous this hotel is .. most of which is driven by amazing customer service. Truly, everyone you run into is lovely and helpful. The hotel is charming and very "boutique".

I'd stay here again. Clean, nice staff, great location that is close to everything in the Pearl District of Portland. It's a bit noisy from the trolly, but it's in a city, so expected. Price is kind of high, but it's a nice hotel, so also expected in a city. We walked everywhere for meals and just to shop around....

Hotel is in the middle of the Pearl, very central to a lot of places. There is a parking service, but I found that using one of the public parking lots only a block away was cheaper. Very clean and friendly staff, would definitely stay again!

We have seen this hotel on many previous trips to Portland. We had a party of five, and it is hard to find losing to accommodate a group of that size, without booking multiple rooms. The Mark Spencer had spacious rooms and a great location- will definitely stay here again!

Thank you for reviewing your stay. Often, downtown hotels are not equipped to accommodate a party of five, but at the Mark Spencer Hotel we are more than happy! Our Master Suites are incredibly spacious and offer a king size bed, pull out couch and room for an additional rollway if needed. It also comes with a sleekly designed kitchenette...

The rooms are nicely appointed. The beds are very comfortable, on the soft side) the sheets and pillows were superior. The kitchen is beautiful and small but more than adequate for a hotel stay. We were not bothered by noises from other rooms. The bathroom was exquisitely done and the shower was fabulous with overhead and side showerheads. The complimentary...

Stayed for a month with a great rate. Room was large and clean. Love having a kitchenette and separate living area. Staff were very nice and helpful. Laundry available was great and cookies left in room on St Patrick's day was a nice touch. I plan another trip to Portland this year and am looking forward to staying here again....
