When we did not like the ground floor location we were switched right away to a nice room on the top floor. The free coffee and cookies plus wine and cheese before dinner are nice perks. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom spacious.

I went to a concert at the Roseland & booked this hotel because it was the closest and most affordable hotels to the venue. This ended up being one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at. The breakfast in the morning was great & my favorite part was definitely the shower. NICEST SHOWER EVER I SWEAR!!! 10/10 recommend.

I stayed at the mark Spencer recently, and was very pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The room was spacious and comfortable: I had a front facing room which had a nice view of downtown. The lobby isn't much, but the staff were very friendly and helpful. They were obviously in the middle of some renovations, but overall the hotel was quaint, quiet, and within walking distance of many nice shops and restaurants.

Pros: Friendly and professional staff. Excellent location.
Cons: Took several minutes for water in shower to warm up (possibly due to being on sixth floor?). After waiting, plenty of hot water.
Location: Great location within walking distance to Pearl District with restaurants, shops and the awesome Powell's Book Store! Close to Portland Art Museum.
Very professional and courteous staff, room comfortable and clean. Hotel is centrally located with many excellent restaurants and shops within walking distance. Would definitely stay there again.

This was my second stay at this hotel, and is now my first choice hotel for Portland. The location is perfect as it's on the edge of the Pearl District which is where I like to be. It's also a short walk to downtown and public transport gets you almost everywhere else.

Excellent Location

Within walking distance to yoga, healthy eats and shopping. However, it's an older building and the bathroom sink didn't drain nor did the hot water for the sink work properly though the fixtures were all new. Yet, the staff was responsive and discounted my room as requested. They would have come up to fix it but but since we were only staying one night I requested they wait until we checked out. Our room included a fully functioning kitchenette with china, utensils and cooking tools. The sitting room was comfortable and it was set up well for an extended stay. There was no evening door man or bell hop which I could have used at check in. Parking was across the street and due to one ways a bit cumbersome. I would stay there again just for the location.

Quick check-in. Great location. Parking available for a reasonable price, but we parked for free on the street within two blocks of the hotel. Easily the nicest hotel I've stayed at in this price range. Unbelievably comfortable bed/pillow
