Expert Review

This Portland hotel is a bit of an odd bird. On the one hand, it exudes old-world charm with its traditional European boutique hotel furnishings, while on the other hand it boasts many visiting performers and artists and is located at the epicenter of urban cool. In truth, it's an affordable option for anyone wishing to bed down in the heart of the city. Rooms are spacious, if not a tad conventional, but a complimentary daily New York Times in the morning and tea and cookies in the afternoon are nice perks.
