Spread out and relax in an amazing city at Residence Inn in downtown Portland. Suites offer one or two separate bedrooms, additional fully equipped bathrooms and a full kitchen. Living room areas offer an additional television. An outdoor pool is open seasonally and a whirlpool sits adjacent. A sports court offers squash and volleyball facilities, too. Complimentary buffet breakfast is served daily with hot and cold items. Free parking, a manager’s reception with light meals twice a week and wireless Internet are also provided. Pets are also allowed for a one-time fee.
A movie theater is just one block from the hotel and the Lloyd Center Mall is a short walk away. With many attractions and activities so close to Residence Inn, it’s not necessary to rent a car. If taking the train into the city, cab fare is around $10 from the Amtrak station. At this hotel, historic neighborhoods and the community of northeast Portland is outside your backdoor. Some kid-friendly attractions are the Oregon Zoo and the Oregon Museum of Science Industry.

Rooms were very nice and clean. Staff is very helpful and courteous. The location is close in to many restaurants and shopping. All Units have full kitchens with Marriott's comfortable queen size bed. breakfast was excellent and free. Also, wi-fi was free and fast. Reocmended for stay.
We stayed here with our 3 adult children and had plenty of room to spread out. Our unit was up three flights of stairs, but luckily we are all able to climb stairs with luggage easily. It had a loft area with it's own bath, and a sleeper sofa in the living area, in addition to a kitchen and 3 TVs. Although we spent more time touring than at the hotel, we appreciated the outdoor pool and the included breakfast. The drive to downtown was about 8 minutes, if that. Overall a great choice for our group which exceeded the capacity of a classic hotel room.
