Quiet, comfy, and a continental breakfast!

Mar 3rd, 2020

I had a great stay at the University Place Hotel. I was in and out frequently but was always greeted by smiling, helpful, and accomedating staff. The highlight for me was the continental breakfasts. They provide a great spread and plenty of it. Overall, there is a staff member in the dining area by the name of Art. He not only greeted and cleared tables but he also went out of his way to make certain my experience there was a great one. Everyone on staff did a fantastic job! My time at the University Place Hotel was awesome due to them. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Unexpected Visit

Feb 15th, 2020

My daughter and I stayed here recently when she had an accident and I came to take care of her. Our room was remodeled and very clean. We were very comfortable as she recovered. The breakfast was delicious everyday and the attendants were courteous and efficient. Our room was quiet and had a great big tv, a comfy chair, and a very nice shower. The housekeepers were nice and worked around my daughter as she rested. We used the frig and microwave and were happy to have them. The only complaints we had were a heater that was warm but noisy and vending machines that didn’t work. The hotel is in a great location and is incredibly well priced in downtown. There are walkable restaurants and easy access to public transportation. There were even daffodils blooming in February! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Car window smash cost us about $700

Feb 9th, 2020

We stayed at University Place two nights (1/27,28-'20). Just returned from Mt. Hood Skiing. Did not empty entire car completely because we had a lot of gear. Parked close to door into Hotel. Second night, rear passenger window broken out - $3-400 worth of gear stolen. Window repair $300. We discovered homeless camp of about 8 tents just an arm's throw from guest's cars. (See photo) Absolutely no security in lot. No lights, cameras or patrols. We were told by Portland State U. campus police that this was not an uncommon occurrence. So the hotel certainly knows of this nearby camp & yet does nothing to protect its guests. Plus it charges $18/nite for the convenience of parking next to said camp. We have written President Percy of PSU to alert him of this egregious situation. Speaking with Manager "Alex" later in day he refused our request of a night's refund saying -"That action would indicate the Hotel was at fault". Unfortunate but true. The hotel knows of this lurking danger yet continues to have its guests park in a very vulnerable spot. BTW the room was fine. Help mostly good. Hallways depressing. Breakfast included is nice for those on a budget. Location to public transport is excellent. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

overnight stop to see aperformance at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall

Nov 16th, 2019

This hotel was excellent for our purpose. We were making a quick overnight trip and wanted somewhere convenient that wouldn't break the bank. It was clean and comfortable, and the staff was great. The person who checked us in, I believe his name was Sage, was great. He was very helpful and congenial. The bed was very comfortable and the shower had good water pressure. What else could you want. I though there might be noise from the highway, but even though our room was in back facing it, we didn't hear a thing. The breakfast that was included was one of the best complimentary ones I have ever had. And the parking was the most reasonable in the area. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

good value

Oct 2nd, 2019

We spent four nights here. The price was much lower than other hotels in central Portland, the location is excellent--near two trolley lines and walking distance to much of downtown, and our room was spacious and comfortable. We specifically asked for a quiet room, and got one. The front desk staff--some students, some professionals--was very friendly and helpful. There were signs in our room of deferred maintenance, but nothing that interfered with our enjoyment of the room. Having an Avis office in the lobby was very convenient for us, since we rented a car, using Portland as a home base, and drove all around Oregon; and we were able to pick up and return the car right at the hotel. Breakfast (complimentary) was good, but nothing special. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
