Enjoyed our stay. We like staying in renovated historic buildings. The rooms were large and bed comfortable. TV's were also large. Wardrobe was a little small given the number of people that could be staying in the room. Also, we were given 2 sets of towels for a king room with sofa bed. So, it would be easy to have 3-4 people staying in the room. Having to ask for extra towels is tiresome. Major complaint. Our living room connected to another room. The family in that room was LOUD. So LOUD. We had to crank up the volume on our TV to hear it and not them. So glad we didn't have anyone expected to sleep on the sofa, they would not have been able to. Staff was responsive to requests and the morning breakfast was very good.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland Downtown for two days with two of our college-aged children in March, 2023. When we reached the hotel by car, we couldn't find the entrance to the parking garage, so we called the hotel and received instructions clearly. The parking garage is adjacent to the hotel, and you have to cross the street to get inside. We didn't realize when we booked our stay that the parking charge is $45 per night! The parking garage is kind of sketchy, as is the elevator, but once we arrived inside of the hotel we were very happy. There is a valet available if you choose to use that service. The lobby is absolutely beautiful, and will take you back in time. There is a little "store" located by the front desk where you can purchase coffee, drinks and snacks. The front desk employees are very friendly and nice. We were given our key cards for our room, and took the elevator to our floor. Our room was very clean and nicely decorated. The spacious bedroom was separate from the rest of the room. It included two large beds, a large television and large windows with light-blocking shades. The bathroom was also large, and included soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and a blow dryer. A separate wet bar is near the bathroom area and includes a mini fridge and a sink/faucet. There were two large towels, two hand towels and two wash cloths in the bathroom. We needed more towels for our family of four, so we simply called down to the front desk, and they brought more to our room. After spending 1-1/2 hours in our room, we found that the room was not getting any warmer, despite the fact that we kept turning up the thermometer, so we again called down to the front desk, and they immediately sent a maintenance person to see if something was wrong with the heater. The maintenance person was so nice and friendly, and informed us that the HVAC system in our room wasn't working, and that they would immediately move us to another room. We moved to a room two doors down, and the room was just as lovely as the first, and the heater worked well. We enjoyed an evening reception that included two alcoholic drinks per person, vegetables, cheese, crackers and dip. The reception area is decorated very nicely, and the bartender made me one of the best Lemon Drop Martinis that I've ever tasted. Our college-aged children wanted to go for a swim, so we headed down to the pool area. On the way, we met another family of four on their way back from the pool. They told us to stay away from the pool as there was a gentleman in the pool with five screaming children and a dog. We kind of laughed off their comments as we have a family of five, and have always travelled with our children. We were a little shocked as we got closer to the pool area as we started hearing a dog yipping loudly. We opened the door to the pool area, and there really was a dog in a crate by the pool yipping very loudly. The children were lovely, and we didn't mind them having a wonderful time in the pool, but the dog's barks were deafening. We left, and walked to the front desk to ask if dogs were permitted in the pool area. We spoke with Wade, and he was so friendly and nice, and told us that dogs were definitely not allowed in the pool area. We decided to call it a night, and spend time with our family in our room before bed. At around 11:00 pm, we headed for bed. For the next 1-1/2 hours, we heard children running back and forth (loudly) in the room above ours. It was very hard to get to sleep. However, once we did, the comfortable beds, linens and pillows lulled us to sleep. We were awakened the next morning by the same children running back and forth across the room above us. After a delicious full breakfast the next morning in the same lovely room where we enjoyed the evening reception, we went to talk to Wade at the front desk. We explained to Wade that we didn't get much sleep the night before or that morning because of the constant running of the children, and asked for an upgraded room. Wade was so understanding and accomodating. He apologized for the noise, the cold room the night before, and for the experience at the pool, upgraded our room to one double the size of our previous room, and waived one night's parking fee. We were beyond pleased. Wade truly went out of his way to make this stay perfect, despite a few minor problems. I'm not sure what our new room was called, but it had windows all the way around it. It was as large as a small apartment! It was beautiful furnished. Again, we attended the evening reception with our college-aged children, met new friends, and spent a nice day in Portland. Wade told us a little history about the hotel, including the fact that Elvis Presley once stayed there. We enjoyed visiting VooDoo Doughnuts just a short walk from the hotel. Although there is a heavy police presence at VooDoo Doughnuts, we felt completely safe at all times. We will definitely stay at this hotel again, and I will recommend it to my family and friends. It's in the perfect location for just about everything. Thank you, Wade, for everything you did to make our stay absolutely perfect. And to the woman bartender (I'm so sorry that I forgot your name), you make the BEST lemon drop martinis. Thank you for going out of your way to make them for me.

First time visiting. The hotel is nice but yes very old. The location is very active at night which is good for those night roamers. The staff are nice enough. The room was nice enough keeping in mind the age and bandaid repairs or remodeling. Unhappy about the parking fee charged for our stay when the garage is wide open to anyone due to construction making it an honor system - doesn't make me feel good about paying $55 a night when anyone could park free. And for whatever reason, they issue breakfast punch cards but don't collect them or verify guest access to the dining area. We noticed two young ladies who looked like they had a rough night at breakfast and saw them later with several other people who were unhoused. The hotel charges and provides services without checks and balances for whatever reason.

Let's get the negatives out of the way first. I asked for a quiet room upon arrival, and the front desk woman who checked us in offered us a corner room that was much bigger. She didn't say the upgrade would cost us, but it did. Likewise, I asked the next morning if they charged for late checkout, and once again the front desk woman said nothing about an extra charge, but in fact, that too was on the final bill. Both charges were worth it, but just be upfront with the costs! Now, the room (that we paid an upgrade for) was one of the best rooms I've ever stayed in. The decor was classic, and not spectacular, but the layout was quite nice. The view from the living area part of the suite was nice (I mean, it was Portland, which limits the grandness, but ... ) In addition to the wonderful room, they had a manager's reception. The snacks were mediocre, but I tried the suckers punch and it was excellent! Two free drinks?!? Who can complain. The next morning we were down for breakfast, and we had the eggs and potatoes which were quite yummy, and they had real orange juice. The baked goods were disappointing, but almost no downtown hotel offers a free breakfast anymore (one of the Hyatts is an exception), and I appreciate what I can get. The lobby was festive (it was December) and we just enjoyed hanging out. Also, it was super convenient to walk a few steps and have dinner at Mother's. (I think they also run food up to your room if need be?!?) It's an old hotel, so you have to like them. The elevator was small and had seen better days, but I loved the feel of the building. Took advantage of the exercise room. It was big and had everything you might need. The business center looked adequate, as well. This hotel may become my favorite Portland hotel!

Lovely old hotel from early 1900s renovated for Embassy. They maintained many of the features of the old hotel making the place feel like a trip back in time. Basement pool and hot tub are a real throwback. They nicely upgraded us to a suite with windows on three sides. A cook is available to prepare omlets and other egg dishes in am, along with usual free breakfast fare. Evening receptions include free low shelf cocktails. Great folks work here and were very helpful. Adjoining Mother's restaurant has a good bar.

This place was the best. The suites are spacious and well laid out. Noise proof, and lots of closet room. The bathroom is spacious as is the counter area in the bathroom. Towels were plentiful. There is also a small bar/coffee area. Downstairs in the lower level the continental breakfast area was very spacious with lots of options and staff to keep up with the clearing of plates and keeping the coffee filled. Thye also give you complimentary drinks for happy hour, which was a nice surprise! The security of the hotel was great also as you cannot get into any elevator unless you have a paid keycard. Managment was also awesome especially the front desk manager Gorana. She was out blessing in disguise. When we visit Portland again we will 100% be staying here. The prices could not be beat. And the area is super walkable to so many different places to eat and shop at or just check out.

First off, I’ll admit that Comfort Inn is usually more our style. I had really high expectations for Embassy Suites, and initially I was impressed by the opulent (and obviously historic - note the embossed M’s around the crown mounding from when it was the Multnomah Hotel) lobby. But then the opulence began to fall apart. The elevators are old and dirty. Our room had sticky carpet and hair stuck to the shower walls. The walls are thin and you can hear everything from neighboring guests to midnight street construction. The good: the beds, and especially pillows, were really comfortable. The shampoos and soaps smelled amazing. Breakfast was delicious . The staff was very kind at every level. Mothers Bistro provided very tasty room service. The bad: expensive parking ($45 self park or $55 valet, per night), cleanliness of pretty much every space (looking at you, 5th floor vending room) and only one coffee pod and one creamer provided in our room. (Really? One, in a room meant for 4 people?) The pool was broken and closed. One incredible bright spot: we opened our room drapes in the morning and were treated to a brilliant downtown Portland sunrise view. We got lucky with our room selection! Next time, we’ll forgo opulence and go back to our “clean and cozy” comfort inn, but this stay wasn’t all bad.
