I had been recommended this hotel from a friend. Saw a deal on expedia and decided to try it out. Loved it from the moment we walked in the door. Very modern, clean. Room was spacious and a suite to boot. I wasn't expecting that but fully stocked with all cooking equipment you would need although I don't know of anyone who would visit Portland and cook dinner in a hotel room with all the incredible dining options there are. Nice big king bed, super comfy with lots of pillows. Bonus for a 7 month pregnant lady! Sitting area was nice and comfortable as well. 2 flat screen TVs which I thought was a bit excessive, but nice none the less.
Breakfast is included but as a celiac, this left much to be desired. Lots of bagels, muffins, etc.
Huge glass containers of starbursts and taffy throughout and as much coffee available at all times of day you desire. Oh, and a Kurieg in the room.
Location is great, walkable to 23rd which has great shops. Also close to Salt and Straw!
Overall, a great place to stay!
From prompt email replies on the morning of our arrival, which gave me the chance to have a bottle of Prosecco waiting for my wife and I. To their allowing our dog to tag along at a cost far less than having him boarded in Seattle, this hotel rocks.
The staff is amazing. The location is fantastic - literally across the street from the Pearl District. The bed is comfortable and, for being in the middle of the city, it is extremely quiet. they have room service available through a partnership with the neighboring restaurant...two words...cheesy hashbrowns...
Having grown up in Portland, I wanted to find a place that was 'Classic' but not over the top so my wife could experience Portland as I remembered it. This place is boutique without being over the top. The rooms are simple, the bed is amazing, and your literally two blocks from the Crystal Ballroom, Powells Books, etc. Oldschool Cool.
We will always look at the Mark Spencer for any future trips to PDX.
The room was very clean, modern, everything looked new, had a desk and a nice sitting area to watch tv. The bed was comfortable, with nice bedding. No any kind of smell in the room whatsoever. The only suggestion is do not forget to hang "do not disturb" sign before going to bed. There was a knock on the door at 8:40 in the morning that woke us up.
Will definitely stay again.
Spotless, comfortable room, very friendly staff, a few minutes walk to all central Portland. Complimentary coffee & tea is available at the foyer but it could do with a small kettle in each room, to avoid an early morning walk to the foyer! Otherwise, cannot fault it at all!
