First, I have to say how fabulous this hotel is .. most of which is driven by amazing customer service. Truly, everyone you run into is lovely and helpful. The hotel is charming and very "boutique". As it's older, it has it's quirks (handicap access is down the street a bit from the main entrance and then up an elevator...

I'd stay here again. Clean, nice staff, great location that is close to everything in the Pearl District of Portland. It's a bit noisy from the trolly, but it's in a city, so expected. Price is kind of high, but it's a nice hotel, so also expected in a city. We walked everywhere for meals and just to shop around....

Hotel is in the middle of the Pearl, very central to a lot of places. There is a parking service, but I found that using one of the public parking lots only a block away was cheaper. Very clean and friendly staff, would definitely stay again!

We have seen this hotel on many previous trips to Portland. We had a party of five, and it is hard to find losing to accommodate a group of that size, without booking multiple rooms. The Mark Spencer had spacious rooms and a great location- will definitely stay here again!

The rooms are nicely appointed. The beds are very comfortable, on the soft side) the sheets and pillows were superior. The kitchen is beautiful and small but more than adequate for a hotel stay. We were not bothered by noises from other rooms. The bathroom was exquisitely done and the shower was fabulous with overhead and side showerheads. The complimentary...

Stayed for a month with a great rate. Room was large and clean. Love having a kitchenette and separate living area. Staff were very nice and helpful. Laundry available was great and cookies left in room on St Patrick's day was a nice touch. I plan another trip to Portland this year and am looking forward to staying here again....

Near many things to do in downtown Portland. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Nice amenities. Very good breakfast. Happy hour with beer and wine was very nice. Fresh cookies too. Hot showers and plenty of soap and shampoo available.

The hotel is smack in the middle of happening Portland. The room with a kitchen was very handy for a couple traveling with an infant. Staff are lovely and the 5 pm wine tastings are a nice treat to guests. Loved the place!

Great downtown location, near Powell Books, Kenny & Zuke's Delicatessen, Blue Star Donuts (go early!) and Al's Den for free (pass the hat) entertainment. Value continental breakfast including fruit and good coffee. There's afternoon tea & cookies and a wine hour, but who has time for that with all of Portland to explore?

The newly remodeled room was very comfortable and nicely appointed. The furnishings and crown molding gave the room a feeling of casual elegance. Our room faced an interior court; so we only had a view of the other side of the hotel; but we weren't it during the day. We will request a corner room or street view on our...
