Love everything about this hotel. The decor and architecthure was chic and art deco. The attached restaurant the Zeus Cafe was awesome and so was the underground salt pool in the hotel. The location is perfect in the heart of the Pearl District. My only complaint was I wish we would have had a private bathroom! But even then, they had us across the hall from the very clean and nice shared bathroom. My boyfriend and I loved staying here. Recommending to everyone!

The staff was very kind and attentive. The eclectic hotel was exactly as advertised and the room quite clean. I brought my service animal (dog) with me and they were very accommodating. The hotel does not have a dedicated parking area for guests you have to park on the street or a local garage. I felt I won the lotto when i got the parking place across the street that you can see from the check in desk. That is until the morning when i came down to my passenger side window bashed in and my stuff sprawled out on the sidewalk. $300 later I have my window fixed. I was a little upset that no one saw anything especially since you can see my car from the lobby. The front desk was kind enough to give me a broom and a bucket for the glass so i could clean it up. The two desk attendants i talked to did not seem shocked, like this kind of thing happens often in Portland. So, word to the wise think twice about parking on the street.
