Convenient Pearl District location and perfect for a Romantic Thanksgiving weekend. The Front-Desk immediately found us a parking spot in the garage once they realized we had drive 10+ hours from San Francisco. Pretty room - with a full kitchen.

The room was beautiful and the staff friendly. We were less than one block away from Powell's bookstore, one of our favorite places in Portland. My wife and I loved our stay and will definitely be booking again.

Older hotel with updated rooms. Continental breakfast, afternoon cookies and evening wine for guests are a nice touch. Low key, comfortable and good location near Powell Bookstore. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful.

Great location. Was able to walk to shopping, got a lot of my Christmas shopping done. Multiple restaurants and pubs, so close we didn't need to worry about driving. Very quiet atmosphere at the hotel. It was a great weekend run away with my husband.
