New standard for hotels in Portland
Posted Jan 28, 2017
Portland hotels have been gradually picking up their game over the last decade. The Nines is a big improvement. The rooms are spacious, gracious, quiet, and comfortable. The quiet part is a big deal, because a number of the nicer hotels in Bridgetown are afflicted with 4AM garbage truck banging. The staff was super nice. The big atrium lobby has all kinds of cool, comfy nooks where you can sit and catch up with friends or email. Really nice gym. Cool decor and art, but manages not to be goofy and over-the-top-- some trying-too-hard-to-be-hip places blow it in that respect, but The Nines hits the sweet spot. Food in the lobby restaurant is darned good, too.
