Went down to Portland and was looking for a hotel close to the train line and the airport with connections to the city. The Pony Soldier fit the bill nicely. Two train stops from the airport and a 3 minute walk from the station, my hotel room was ready for me even at 11:00 AM. Before I left home, I had booked a king because I was travelling solo, but was pleasantly surprised to find that my king was actually in a very nice spacious suite which included a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. With couch, two armchairs and a desk with chair, I had more room than I actually needed to spread my stuff out! I was checked into the hotel in about a minute and a half by a very courteous staff member. Checkout was just as seamless.
Room was very clean, bed was a great sleep; coffee was available at all hours in the lobby-- as was the hotel computer and printer. Although I didn't use it, the pool and jacuzzi in the inner courtyard did look awfully inviting as well. The only downside I can think of was that the eggs and sausage patties in the included breakfast didn't taste that great because I got up late and they were probably sitting around for a while by then. Had to make a waffle to make up for it--which was certainly adequate!
Great restaurant right next door and an excellent steakhouse about 300m to the East
The hotel also has a shuttle which I used to return to the airport when I left, which was appreciated.
