convenient to must-see sights, but bare minimum

We initially got on the wrong side of 97th while arriving very late at night. We had been driving for five hours and were tired and just wanted to find our hotel and go to sleep, so the fact that the hotel staff was so pleasant and told us not to worry, that he'd hold our reservation, was just what I needed to hear. He was also incredibly understanding and helpful at guiding us back on track so we could find our hotel. The hotel was in a very convenient location for making business trips between Hillsboro, Tigard, Gresham, and Downtown Portland and located next to a fun German Restaurant. However, being right next to I-5 made it noisy, and we did't find the bedding very comfortable, so we unfortunately ended up feeling unrested for several nights in a row. In addition, for even the great price I had hoped that there would be a refrigerator in our room, so that was a disappointment as well. Overall, we would probably look for another hotel next time we come to Portland, to ensure that we get some decent rest.
