    I liked the size of the room, the shower supplies were nice. bed was very comfortable

    the room needed to be aired out at arrival. Opened the window and this fixed the smell.

    I liked the kitchenette and the design of the rooms. I liked the separate bedroom from the bathroom, living room and kitchenette. The only problem I had was with the tv. I rented a movie and 3 or 4 times the movie became disconnected and I had to figure out how to re-connect myself with the movie in the place where it had stopped.

    See the above about the tv and movie experience.

    Wine and appetizers, Breakfast buffet was very good and social atmosphere was quite nice

    room next to elevator, carpet need to be up dated

    Easy to get to, you can walk almost anywhere from here.

    The breakfast was adequate, nothing great. The room was fine although a bit dated, especially the bathroom. The neighborhood is rather rundown and although you can walk anywhere from here, it seems it is in homeless central.

    Great location! Coffee & tea available in the lobby. Room was comfortable and clean.

    The information about the hotel is on tv, rather than in print form.

    We have stayed at the Mark Spencer before and love everything about it. The breakfast is incredibly generous- the staff is perfectly helpful and accomodating. The location is amazing- everything is within walking distance. The suites are especially nice- Standard rooms are minimal and tiny. When you go be sure to reserve either executive or junior suite instead of standard room- you will not be disapointed.

    Room / suite was nice; well appointed. Not fancy, but nice for the price. Great location. Friendly staff.

    Had to pay for parking

    Unique, loved the location and view from the 6th floor. Street parking was easy. Walked to everything in town. Ny Times a great treat. Rooms were clean and simple.

    The staff is kind and attentive. I asked for non-feather pillows, and they were waiting for us on the bed. The afternoon cookies are wonderful! We love that the hotel is right down the street from Powell's. This was our third stay in the hotel.

  • Group of friends

    The hotel staff was incredibly helpful. They made great suggestions for places to go on rainy days in Portland and are super friendly. One of the staff helped give thorough instructions on how to get to the Forest Park. It didn't occur to me that it would be a different route coming back to the hotel due to the "one way" streets and so he printed out a map for me to show me how to get back without my asking. I also like the complimentary breakfast as well as the afternoon tea and cookies! The location of the hotel is perfectly situated in the old part of downtown so you're surrounded by great character buildings and a number of eateries and pubs. The Powell's bookstore is just a block away! This isn't a luxury hotel but it was very clean and an overall great place to stay. Every room has it's own kitchen..very convenient.

    The furniture is dated. The walls are a little too thin so you can hear your neighbors closing doors or taking showers. But I'd definitely stay there again based on a lot of other good things this hotel has to offer.

    The staff and accomodations were very nice and the location couldn't have been better. We slept very well.

    location. It was near the trolley, Powells, and good restaurants.

    a terrible smell in the elevator.

    The location is great, the rooms were super clean and the staff was excellent! Lena helped locate the art gallery and restaurant. Very professional and proficient.

    The convenience of a little kitchen, on the streetcar line, very close to The Pearl District and Stumptown Coffee. Oh, and free wifi for guests. Bright and lovely studio room for 1 or 2 is Unit 206.
