Old hotel that was cheaply redone.Posted Oct 4, 2015
The location was pretty good. However, the hotel is very old and it was cheaply Don. I was very underwhelmed with the whole experience. I expected a lot more for the amount that I paid.

Boutique but not luxuriousPosted Oct 4, 2015
This hotel does what it's supposed to, gives you a safe place to rest your head in a good location. When we rolled the dice with expedia's mystery hotel, we didn't know what to expect. This hotel is totally fine, weird things are the dual comforter and the soap dispensers, though we appreciate the green effort of it, the soaps seemed cheap. For the price we paid we expected more. We came to Portland on an unexpectedly busy/pricey weekend, perhaps this location is more reasonable at different times of the year.

Location: Great location for Portland. Everything in walking distance
What can I say, it was the best hotel of my holiday. Everything was great. From check in to check out Other hotel's should take note and follow.

Hotel staff is awesome, super helpful especially the woman that drives the shuttle! Bed was nice, but area can be a little noisy.

Perfect Pineapple HospitalityPosted Sep 27, 2015
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Portland and I would stay there again, myself. The hotel was about a $30-$40 shuttle/cab ride from the airport so I recommend taking the train in which is like $2.50 and the stop is about 2 blocks away from the hotel. Well, worth the 40 minute commute. I didn't go to the restaurant or bar but I ordered Room Service which was absolutely delicious and was delivered very quickly and the room service server was very nice. The room had a little fridge, which is nice, so you can keep snacks and drinks for yourself. The coffee maker was one of those K-Cup dealies which, flavor-wise, reminds me of coffee from a vending machine in a hospital but it was convenient. The bed was incredibly nice with an amazing pillow-top and very fluffy comforters. It was a king-size bed but it had like two twin-size comforters which was weird. But, whatever. The location of the hotel is near everything downtown and not right smack dab near everything which is up to you. My only gripe with the room was the shower. The shower was a walk-in style shower with a rain-shower head that was one of those water saver types with low flow. That was doable. The shower had no door or curtain. It had half a "window" that served as a door which got water on the floor which was very inconvenient and somewhat dangerous if you're not careful. Overall, I highly recommend Hotel Rose. Loved it!

Hotel Rose PortlandPosted Sep 23, 2015
A clean and modern hotel just on the edge of downtown, next to the river, within easy walking distance to everything and conveniently located for the Max . But this was the only downside for me, it was noisy considering the Max line runs right next to it. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the shower lovely, the coffee maker was a disappointment for me personally as it makes just watery American coffee and pods weren't being replaced daily. But overall a nice place.

Good transport and walkable to downtownPosted Sep 22, 2015
Hotel near to stops for the MAX Light Rail system. Also near enough to walk to downtown area. Better rooms haave river views. Good on-site hotel food and plenty of choice nearby. Complimentary bikes available and nice riverside ride.

Nice hotel on the waterfrontPosted Sep 21, 2015
Pros: I liked the comfortable bed, free bicycles, and the convenient location.
Cons: It would be a good idea to warn guests when big/loud events are happening across the street in the park. Also, get more bicycles.
Location: Great location! Lots of bars and restaurants nearby, the Saturday/Sunday market is just up the street, and it's easy to walk or bike across the bridge
This hotel is very conveniently located -- downtown, on the waterfront, near the Belmont/Morrison bridge. The lobby is nice, there's parking for $15, the rooms are very comfortable, and we enjoyed the free bicycles (with helmets and a lock). However, it was very noisy. The traffic getting onto the bridge is loud -- thankfully the hotel provides earplugs. Also, the Race for the Cure was happening at the waterfront park, and the announcers and music woke us up quite early. The hotel also only has 10 bicycles for use, so they run out early in the day (we got the last two at 8am on a Sunday). Also, our room was small and the bathtub was tiny... for the price, I would have expected a bit more from this hotel.

Five Star Price for a Two Star ExperiencePosted Sep 20, 2015
Pros: Valet parking and room service: very limited menu and very expensive, but it allowed me to stay off the street - a scary place after nightfall.
Cons: The building needs a serious renovation: double-layered windows to keep out the noise (and the flies). Also - upgrade the internet service - a lot.
Location: Nice area, between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. As sundown approaches, the wolves come out of the shadows. Don't go out at night.
I am not allowed to post the price of my one-night stay. If I were allowed, it would astound you. Seriously, how is this hotel rated four stars? It is old and shabby. There are no amenities to speak of. The rooms are uncomfortable. The air conditioning does not work. There is no internet connection other than a completely unsecured and glacially slow wireless connection. The first thing that greets you when you enter your room is a pamphlet on security: do not open your door to strangers, keep your valuables in the hotel safe, etc. This pamphlet is needed, because downtown Portland, while beautiful during the day, is a sketchy area at night. Closing the windows and pulling the curtains could not keep out the noise of the drug-addicts howling at the moon on the street five stories below. (The "hotel" is only five stories tall.) It didn't keep out the noise of the traffic either. The staff seem overworked and underpaid. Although they will do what you ask, they are very impatient about it. Be sure to ask nicely. The bathroom did not have bars of soap. It had dispensers bolted to the wall. I am sure this must be a necessary loss-prevention measure. That alone tells you something about the hotel's environment. If I had only paid a two-star price for this hotel, I might be inclined to generously grant it three stars. However, I had to pay a five-star, luxury hotel price. Avoid this hotel if you can. I couldn't wait to leave in the morning.
