Beautiful hotel in Downtown Portland
Posted Sep 20, 2016
There are two things that immediately impacted me when we got here. How wonderfully fancy, beautiful, and immaculate this hotel was. The second was that the room was just a bit smaller than expected, but I was definitely willing to overlook that for how nice this room was! I had a room that looked inwards (think of the hotel like a donut). It was so cool and interesting to look down at the Urban Farmer's Restaurant below. Another great aspect of being inward facing was that I was insulated from any potential road noise for those facing the street.
Perhaps my only quibble with my specific stay is that I was on the 14th floor right below the Departures Restaurant. I only mention this for business travelers who need to get to bed early. The noise and footsteps on the 14th floor generally don't stop until about 11:30pm to Midnight. As someone on vacation, these noises did not bother me.
The staff here was extremely friendly and I would high recommend this hotel for someone who wants to live in the lap of luxury for a bit. This was probably one of the most luxurious hotels I've ever stayed in. Turn down service anyone? Yes please!
