Lovely relaxing stay in Portland at the Blind Tiger guesthouse. Common areas are beautiful and inviting and our Baxter room was perfect for a wonderful retreat.

Pros— common areas very cute. Could be great in non covid times. Location was convenient to walk most places. If you have concerns about COVID, you’re unlikely to interact with people at the hotel. My 3 summer nights at Blind Tiger ranged from underwhelming to disappointing. The hotel seemed more like an Air BnB most of the time. Self check in with code. Rooms are only cleaned if you text and request. If you take something from their pantry, text them so they charge you. Basically if you need anything, text them. Just made me feel like I was in someone else’s houses and not a higher end hotel that we paid a premium for. Breakfast was a let down— some room temperature yogurt w/ granola, boiled eggs. The room itself looked better in photos. Bathroom was not ideally cleaned. Air conditioner secured to cracked window with towels and tape. So loud we could not run it at night and then were unfortunately warm to sleep. Bed was comfortable. I was really looking forward to this place, but would not say it was worth it for the price that we paid. Service and quality could use improvement.

All of the decor and furnishings were carefully thought out and unique. Blind Tiger is a beautiful guest house. The amenities were great -- superb breakfast, coffee and tea all day and great variety. I felt comfortable using and relaxing in the common areas of the house and not confined to my guest room. It was also in walking distance of many great Portland dining options. We would return!

What a treat to stay at the Blond Tiger! The renovation on this historic home is incredible and the staff and amenities are wonderful. I will be looking at other Lark Hotel properties to stay at!
