The location is fantastic; in the heart of Portland, easy access to the freeway, and blocks from Tom McCall Waterfront Park. There are even bikes you can borrow to ride along the waterfront. The decor had a traditional foundation, but the colors, patterns and accessories showed a fun sense of humor. The service was fantastic; friendly, prompt…it was definitely all about the guests. The rooms were comfortable and relaxing. There is an on-site work out room, business center, Aveda spa and salon, and restaurant. They don’t just allow pets, they welcome them. They also take into account guests with allergies, so one floor is hypo allergenic and 100% pet free. If you have specific allergies or needs, let them know so that they can best accommodate you.
