Not for a family w/grown kids
This is one of our favorite locations when coming to Portland as its more or less a one stop with pubs, music, movies, pool, etc. But..I've always come with either one kid or my spouse. This visit I had my two grown sons. Very disappointing to spend over $300/night to be delegated to roll aways. We booked a queen for 3 and in the photos saw a sofa but to find out there is no sofa in the room. We were then offered a king but the room was much smaller and a roll away again. The clerk noted the room would be really jammed and probably not comfortable. So, we went with the option of the queen and 2 roll aways given there really was no other choice and still was jammed in. That's a lot of money to be on a camp cot. We won't come again as a family. So disappointed and my sons got little to no sleep.

This place is a must stay. From being pet friendly to the soaking tub- it’s a one of a kind experience you don’t want to miss. Each room and area in the hotel is unique and so welcoming. Walking distance to some of the best places in Portland as well!
