Overview

Located in the heart of Portland, near many restaurants and top sights
Limited on-site amenities (no spa or pool)
This boutique hotel in downtown Portland first opened its doors in 1909, and reopened in the spring of 2014 after a major facelift that restored the lobby, guest rooms and meeting spaces to their former glory. Guests can still get modern amenities though, like 24-hour room service and free internet access, which is included in the $24 daily guest amenities fee. Bike rentals, a local spirit hour and fresh fruit at the front desk are also covered by the daily fee, among other perks. Other amenities include a fitness center equipped with Peloton bikes and an on-site Starbucks. Recent guests appreciated the hotel's proximity to the famous Powell's Books, along with other popular Portland spots, but it's the customer service that leaves its mark. Recent visitors said the staff goes above and beyond to ensure guests are comfortable and well taken care of. Lodgers also enjoyed the on-site restaurant, Jake's Grill, that serves up steak and seafood, as well as the lobby bar, Jackknife, which is popular among hotel guests and local residents alike.
