    Very nice historic hotel. Rooms could use a renovation, but they were clean and comfortable. Free and fast wifi.
  • Alejandro R.
    The rooms are just right, the bathroom can be a little bigger but other than that is good, the best thing is its location. Really good to walk around and meet the city.

    Rooms are super tiny and smell like old casino (smoke scent is penetrated through all rooms)

    Beautiful hotel !!! Classic old style, makes you feel in a movie ... The Wednesdays has a very good piano show with Bill Beach ... I liked a lot because he sings Brazilian music, MPB!

    If you call down to the front desk or housekeeping, they will lend you a "companion fish" betta for the duration of your stay, free of charge.

    Slowest elevators in Portland. Lobby may be nice but rooms need an update.

    Avoid this hotel - mediocre and. It worth the price for the service. Noisy halls with slamming doors, lack of modernization in the rooms. Lobby looks nice but otherwise I give it 2.5 of 5 at best.

    Not sure what others were saying about small rooms. I got the junior suite and it's ginormous.

    Great hotel, but If you require Internet access - you might consider other options. It is free (via AT&T wifi) but it was slow and unreliable the week I was there.

    Ask Jonah for a manhattan with the special italian cherries he hides in the fridge
  • Merredith B.
    The restaurant has great happy hour fare and fun cocktails -- the "deep fried egg" with truffle oil and charred asparagus" is fantastic. Thank me later.

    Beautiful restaurant beneath the hotel! Ask for a tour of the secret wine room! Bet you can't find the entry door - it really IS secret!

    Old hotel but bed is comfy. Continental breakfast is simple but gd - fresh fruits in a bowl, toast, juice, and coffee. Unfortunately, no cell phone reception on the bottom flr where the restaurant is.

    Gorgeous lobby with an awesome fireplace. If you're walking around downtown and it's chilly, stop in to warm up and have a drink in their handsome lounge.

    Another great reason to stay here: AT&T Wi-Fi is one of the many amenities here for guests. It’s fast and easy to connect.

    Beware of the valet parking rip-off! My vehicle was parked for about 14 hours, and $29 was added to the room bill, plus the tip for retrieving my vehicle!

    Enjoy your stay! While you are there check out the beautiful marble floors from the 1920's that we have been maintaining for over 4 years. WOW!

    If you are having dinner in either London Grill or El Gaucho, stop into the lobby bar for a drink as well. It's beautiful and has nice live music.
