Everything was great until the girls basketball teams came then we got talked to about being too loud We were laughing at a TV show

Guess that annoyed someone No freezer, have to ask for microwave Pool was dirty with stuff from trees Lounging chairs filled with the same tree stuff and no towels at pool Yet towels were laying everywhere Front desk people were amazing

Very unhappy with the service I reserved a room for my son’s wedding night Tried to pay in advance and was told that they could not let me pay since it was for my son

Sent him the money He tried to set-up an early check-in multiple times (in advance) and was told he would need to call the morning of – when he called they declined an early check in He checked in at the scheduled time and used his card (since I sent him the money) They charged my card When I called, I was told there was nothing they could do It was a very frustrating experience all around and we will not be using them again

Clark Johnson

This is a nice hotel with friendly staff I felt the room to be a big snug, with just the two of us tripping over each other and our belongings CAUTION – Do not expect the hotel restaurant to have good food, because it does NOT

It is mostly empty so corners are cut The food is pre-prepared and then heated up I had some sort of breakfast burrito that was probably the worst thing I have ever eaten It was a concealed clump of eggs, potatoes, and meat Gross The waitress was nice, took it back, and removed it from the bill

I arrived for a conference and the woman who checked me in was so quick, nice and professional I was able to check in early which I was not expecting Our lunch during our conference was great and the server had great customer service

The three men that helped me with valet were so friendly and quick I loved my room, it was very clean and comfortable I wish the shower had more pressure but everything else made up for it Check out was quick and easy and the manager was training two new hires with such patience As a manager in the hotel industry I was very happy with my stay and the entire staff The housekeepers I saw in the hallway were so friendly also Would highly recommend

Abby Rager

Wow, what an A+++ experience It’s rare that you walk into a hotel and feel SO genuinely welcomed by its representatives I was immediately greeted by Ava who provided an amazing customer experience at check-in — she was personable, precise, and kind

She was so savvy that she immediately tied my reservation to me based on some clothing indicators and took initiative to greet me by name before I even got to the desk! This hotel’s amenities, rooms, and location were all top-notch, but the people that work there were what really separated it from the many other Portland hotels I’ve stayed in The bartender RJ was fantastic as well Ava and team made the stay feel incredibly comfortable Just re-booked 2 nights for this week!

Rajasekhar Gundu

Tiny rooms but well maintained No water in room unless you ask for & nothing in room refrigerator food (they did mention at check-in though) and no dining option at all COVID really changed many businesses operating mechanism it seems so

Mini gym in basement, and a daily wine tasting experience at 5PM which I never managed to get a time slot in my calendar A good place to stay, but lot of scope to improve

Dan Reamer

This place was fantastic I like to stay at more independent hotels and we picked this place because of the great reviews I see why the reviews were so great; this hotel pays attention to the details! The complimentary breakfast was incredible with a different menu every day

The hotel room was spacious and even had a leather couch The indoor pool and hot tub were also great They even had cookies every night in the grand lobby which was a nice touch I would highly recommend this place!

Daisy Maya

The grand has a beautiful grand entrance and just steps inside is a large living room area With several small intimate seating areas to sit and visit They have complimentary coffee bar as well

The rooms are spacious and well appointed My room had a king bed, couch and desk Many plug-ins and electronics plug ins too The bathroom was big and nicely done with wall paper and granite counter tops The shower was stand alone and a bit tight fit, but the shower head was a rain one and I loved that I am not much of a bath person The tub was very shallow and average length So if you wanted a soak, I think you would be disappointed For a quick bath with kiddos it would be perfect The bathroom floor tile had pops of fancy pretty tiles to break up the plain tile I loved the pops of color and design In room coffee maker did not use plastic cups, loved that!!!! I try hard to avoid plastic My room also had mini refrigerator and cabinet with drawers, suitcase rack and hair dryer Being so close to the highway was not a problem, well insulated from the noise of the highway Walking distance to Bridgeport Mall and all it has to offer The only down side to my room was the view out the window There was a roof and then a 2 foot strip of surface that had vents and such All the black and green moss and such was not pretty to look at, personally I would definitely stay here again

Ben C

We recently used there meeting room to hold my moms memorial It went off without a hitch Communication with Erica was fantastic

The front desk staff were very accommodating when we needed any extra things as well We were even able to get into the room a day early to set things up and not be rushed the morning of the celebration They were able to reconfigure the room as our rsvp list was over 60 people My mom was there in spirit and I know she would have loved the celebration for her Thank you grand hotel staff

Emma Virgen

After checking out, there was a charge in my bank account of a couple hundred dollars I called the hotel and asked why I was being charged and they said it was because there was an ironing board, iron, and pillow missing from the room They accused me of stealing the items and had footage of me and my husband checking into the hotel but conveniently “couldn’t find the footage of us checking out”

There’s no way I could fit an ironing board in my over night bag along with an iron and pillow I called the hotel manager and explained the situation and they only agreed to give me $50 back If you don’t want to get accused of stealing, I would find another hotel to stay at

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any hotel They compare hundreds of booking websites and usually will have rates a lot cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This resort is the best rated in this area

I’ve been staying here for a very long time If you decide to stay here you for sure won’t be disappointedWe had an early flight into Portland and called the hotel when I landed (like they told me to when I called earlier in the week) and they put us in a room that was ready when we arrived at 10am! Super helpful staff Clean and definitely worth the cost

Wayne Beaumier

I’ve been to the Monarch a few times now for a yearly convention and I always enjoy myself The rooms and halls are still somewhat dated and older but that never bothers me The pool area has been built up and is great to relax at

Both the indoor and outdoor restaurant is delicious, while the underground themed area is fun and different The staff is always courteous, kind, and easy to get ahold of They do an excellent job of taking care of the convention goers before, during, and after the event Cannot wait to come back next year

Anne Pettus

I’ve stayed here in the past and had a great experience But that was 5 years ago This time was awful

We needed a place to stay while we were selling our house and had our open house The first night, the keys didn’t work to the first room they gave us, so they gave us another room This room was on the first floor and was very dirty The sink had grime all around it, the shower head was falling out, there was black hair in the tub and I’m pretty sure it hadn’t been cleaned in a very long time House keeping only comes if you call and request and they do bare minimum, they didn’t even change our sheets even though I had requested that Oh and the whole first floor reeked of pot the whole time We booked three nights and only stayed two Avoid this hotel if staying in the area Go to the Marriott down the road It’s worth the extra money!!

One of the better Courtyards I’ve stayed at The main lobby was very spacious and had many lounge sofas and the interior was decorated beautifully I was surprised this location didn’t have a pool which I was looking forward to use

The 24hr gym has decent amount of equipments and was well kept I was surprised there was even a bike trail behind the hotel which I made use of The trail cut thru the forest behind the hotel so it was a nice quiet place away from city noise

I am a traveling nurse I started with 4 other nurses I showed up, on a Sunday and was unable to lock in a price for nurses

Was told to speak to the manager J Paul, the next day He offered me $149 a night, or whatever price was on the website, for that day My stay for Sunday was $116, the next next it was $150 Aqua, the check in lady, said it would be lower than $113 for the rest of my stay Another, younger, better looking nurse got a rate of $113, for the same contract, that I am working We are 5 women, that wanted to stay together, but he was not about to help us, as we traveled to his town, to help out his communityThe was no breakfast, for $149, no muffin, no juice My shower didn’t drain My TV turned off, every few hours, to reboot I had a great view, in the back, of the homeless, living in the woods If you want a different view, get a room in the front Stains on the chair and bedspread Housekeeping entered my room, without knockingThey charge high prices, for motel 6 qualityThe other nurse, left the same day as myself We are now at a Hilton property, for much less, with nicer rooms and free breakfastI am letting all my fellow travel nurses know, avoid the Marriott They don’t like nurses

Katie Anderson

The service was kind, the place was clean, and it slept us all My only reason for 3 stars is that I had booked a king with a separate seating area, shown with a door dividing This is perfect for our family

They seemingly just put us in any room, asking if we had a floor preference, and we ended up in a standard king No privacy for the kiddo, and no reduction in charges

Chris Rhoades

Nice place to stretch out and stay if you find yourself in the Portland area We got two days for a very reasonable price and were very pleased with the value Shoot, we probably put them in the red for our stay for all we eat at the scrumptious continental breakfast

Pool hours were a bit confusing and I think I ended up with about a dozen key cards after the previous eleven failing at one point or anotherof course this very well could have been operator error Super convenient having Target within tripping distance of the back door and they even offered complementary drinks for happy hour with our purchase My high compliments to the staff and management of this fine establishment

Kimberly Stewart

The hotel was a madhouse Kids were running all around the hotel doing whatever they wanted and there was no hotel staff around to keep things under control Kids pressed every button to stop the elevator on every floor so you had no choice but to ride it out or take the stairs

There was tape on the carpet, tape on the ceiling Cleanliness was questionableCheap precooked food was served for breakfast and the buffet was not restocked as it should have been The staff seemed to be more concerned with closing and shutting down than making sure guests were happyEvening reception was a joke Bagged chips and cheese? Insulting The line for drinks didn’t seem to move Stood in line 30 minutes and still never received my drinksThe bed was hard as a brick and linen had holes in itRequested a room cleaning and the front desk clerk told me I needed to request it the night before despite never telling me that during check inWe had to change rooms because someone left their dog in the hotel room and it barked for hoursNever staying here again

Michelle H

Avoid booking here if you have other optionsThere were multiple bus loads full of young people in the hotel who decided to stay up well past “quiet hours” to have a huge pizza party with music, singing and yelling within the central common area This was going on when we checked in around 8pm but didn’t stop

I called the front desk at 9pm and asked when the quiet hours would be enforced I was told by the front desk manager that security was “handling” the situation and it would be quiet soon for the 9pm quiet hours curfew Unfortunately, that never happened The noise actually grew louder as the crowd grew more raucous I kept calling the front desk when there was no hint of it calming down at 10:30pm, but no one bothered to pick up the phone at that point My call, and likely many others from angry and distressed guests (many who are parents of young kids like us), was sent to hold I actually considered calling the police to assist the incompetent staff to control the crowd, but decided Portland Police probably had more urgent issues to addressI understand that it can be hard to control rowdy and inconsiderate guests, but it appears that there were no attempts made to try In fact, according to the reviews, this is a common occurrence in this locationI never would have booked a stay in this location had I known the inferior quality control and complete lack of decorum and consideration for the other guestsI emailed the general manager and he (promptly) offered his “deepest regret and apology” I don’t want an apology I want to get what I paid for…a pleasant and comfortable hotel experience with my family

Nice hotel with WONDERFULLY COMFORTABLE beds The large picture window looking out was a nice touch Check in was easy, check out was easy, and secured parking was free

The clerks and housekeeping were very helpful The hotel was clean, freshly styled, and in an electric part of town This area of town was not all touristy, but had a good mix of bars, local restaurants and diners, and an easy walk to the river It was a fun place to stay

Sheridan Pritchard

Cute, quirky and friendly hotel! If you need an animal friendly or day use hotel I would highly recommend Jupiter NEXT Our room was very stylish, clean and well maintained with a beautiful view of the city All the staff at the front desk, bar and room service were helpful and friendly! We took an elevator ride with someone from room service who had just gotten a Scottish fold cat and was such a pleasure to talk to! I wish I had caught his name! Thank you for the wonderful stay!

We got married here and did the full 2nd floor buyout and it was WORTH EVERY PENNY The Jupiter staff was great and so accommodating to everything leading up to our big day and even after They were really good at communicating and answering all my questions

It was so easy to work with them Our wedding was perfect and I do it there all over againNow about our stay It was wonderful We had so many out of town family members and friends who also commented how great of a hotel it was It was in a great location, not too busy of an area but lots nearby to eat/drink/visit all within walking distance The area seemed very safe too The rooms were clean and very well kept This hotel is great, the food at Hey Love was also awesome The feel and overall “vibes” of this place is great and the staff is so friendly All our family and friends LOVED this place and we had so much fun celebrating here!

Ray Boone

When we got to our room, there was a strong smell of cleaning chemicals We’re sensitive to stuff like that so asked if they could move us and they found us another room with no hassle, no questions The new room was a little smaller but didn’t face Burnside, so quiet and a nicer view

I felt like they really took care of us and were very gracious about doing so It was refreshing to get such nice service and really made our stay fantastic The staff were all friendly and eager to help Really enjoyed our stay

Kathijune Bruyere

Absolutely fun experience for a creative being like myself! We got the Werewolf room and the quote around the room though dizzying to follow is the greatest thing I have seen The art in the room and halls (and I am sure the other rooms as well) gives me a through the looking glass feel The bed is comfortable and clean and the staff/personell are helpful and friendly

Dave Cramton

This place is all about attitude and convenience Tiny rooms and shared bathrooms aren’t for everyone But the rooms are clean, the bathrooms (single occupancy, not dorm style!) are kept clean as well

Provided robes are comfortable and voluminous Typical of McMenamins, everything is funky and stylish Great place to stay if you’re seeing a show just up the block at the Crystal Ballroom Zeus Cafe in the lobby makes a great brunch

Beautiful lobby and a classic hotel I stayed here for a few days for a work meeting and was very impressed with the hotel The lobby is beautiful and takes you back to another time

The staff were all very nice and quick to help I had a corner room and it was quite large and very nice All the furniture was very comfortable and very clean The windows also opened which was great to enjoy the beautiful weather The hotel does have a restaurant and I enjoyed multiple breakfasts, all were very good and made exact to order Overall I was very impressed and would definitely recommend and come back again

Brianna Bowles

Pros: Hotel had a timeless beauty to it that was lovely All of the people working there were welcoming and accommodatingCons: Stayed here prior to and the night after surgery to recover and the tempurpedic beds were not comfortable at all, it was rough

There were small parts of the room that weren’t entirely clean when we arrived (floor, sink,)Would stay here again but would 100% request a pillow top rather than memory foam mattress

Ian Taber

A huge thank you to The Benson! They got us a great room for our wedding night on very short notice and was very welcoming to us after our nuptials The front desk staff was always gracious and happy to congratulate us We both slept well and woke up wilt views of Mount St

Hellens We both recommend The Benson to those looking for a luxurious hotel in the downtown Portland area! Thanks again!

Ok so where do I begin? Room window was left open so room was freezing when I arrived, Dusty so it’s terrible for those of us with allergies (It had me wheezy and sneezy all night EVEN on meds!) heater in room didn’t work, horrible parking experience, carpet in hotel smells old!!!! To say that this is a “4” star hotel, The hotel stay was a horrible horrible horrible experience! Will NOT recommend! Ever! I left sick after a 1 night stay! HORRIBLE

J. B.

Very interesting place Consider this before you go, examine architecture carefully before booking I liked the vibe and each corridor had something fascinating (because it appealed to me)

Don’t expect natural light filled areas and brightly colored walls Expect something rustic & more of a Your Grandfather’s Man Cave vibe Worked for me! See pics of the room, bathroom, & corner table Great service by the way from valet to front desk I took some time to explore, although the place was a little dead (covid, duh), it was fun Like I said, INTERESTING place for sure Go see

Jerod Beeson

The staff here REALLY know how to WOW with hospitality and competence! Stayed for my wife’s birthday, and from check-in to check-out, the folks at the front desk were extremely generous for her birthday, as well as helpful (going above and beyond) every time we had a question about the area or needed something The hotel is taking covid precautions very seriously and implementing smart and effective solutions to keep their guests safe Not to mention that the hotel was as beautiful as it was comfortable

Would give more stars if possible! We’ll definitely be back when in Portland again! Thanks guys!

We had dog beds and toys sent up and Morgan even came out from behind front desk and greeted our ancient dog personallyEvery other staff member was also extremely kind and helpful I would also like to note that the rose festival was going on and they were extremely busy and still had the best customer service we have received at a hotel in PortlandThank you!

Stayed at the hotel Deluxe for a night with some girlfriends We were able to get early check-in Our room was fantastic

Easy Uber rides to Keller Auditorium where we saw Hamilton After the show, we got back to the hotel and had a drink at the Driftwood, I chose to have the bartender make me a drink of his choiceI’m not a drinker, so when I got my cocktail, it was a surprise how much I enjoyed said cocktail After drinks, we ended up walking a few blocks to the Melting Pot, had a fantastic dinner and was easily able to Uber back to the hotel We woke up the next morning and had breakfast downstairs at Gracie’sgreat staff, delicious food, convenient location, we just took the elevator down We were able to go back to our and relax before our very easy check-outAll in all, such a fabulous stay at a beautiful hotel Great atmosphere The front desk was helpful and inviting Looking forward to booking another girls night when we go to another show at Kellers

Safal Neupane

I was travelingSo, I called in to reserve a room I was told the price and the time I am supposed to check out

I traveled for 30 minutes in the middle of night to get there to find out it was all lie The price went up, the check out went down Is it a simple misunderstanding? Or a way to take advantage? Such a big hotel and The hotel might be good hotel to stay but in terms of hospitality, might not be the best choice

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough It’s a great location and I love the design Our room was beautiful and so comfortable

Beyond everything else, Hope and everyone at the front desk were the best! They made us feel welcome and called us by name when we entered Hope scheduled a taxi for our return to the airportTommy in the bar was so much fun It felt like everyone in the lobby truly works as a team to make guests feel at home

A great spot! The drinks were awesome (I highly recommend the Mezcal/pineapple drink!) and the food was decent! We got the pomodoro pasta, the beet burger and the polenta fries The polenta Fries we’re awesome—I asked for the aioli on the side to dip because I didn’t care for the red sauce to dip them in, but they were tasty The other two dishes were good—nothing super spectacular, but fine! The pasta had decent flavor although a touch boring overall

The burger had good flavor, but fell apart really easily I think it’s because they make them in house—which is a big positive! The ambience and atmosphere were GREAT though Very cozy, pretty dark, very comfortable If the atmosphere and drinks weren’t how they were, I would have felt like I overpaid for pasta I could have made at home But alas, it was a great overall experience and not overpriced 4 stars (would have been 5 if the food was a touch tastier)

Very nice historical hotel, with all the charm but all the modern features one would expect today We stayed in a King Suite The room was incredibly spacious, and clean

The bed was very comfortable and there were tons of pillows The AC didn’t work as well as we would have liked but the room temp was still comfortable Self parking was available for free and breakfast was delicious with a made to order omelette bar

Tara Henry

Our hotel stay was great, we loved how friendly the staff was and they were quick to respond to our added requests The complimentary cocktail hour could have used more sacks but when your getting free drinks there isn’t much to complain about The complimentary breakfast was great, with made to order eggs/omelets it was definitely good

Only negative we have is that the parking prices were steep and the parking garage was not well secured, we felt uncomfortable walking there at night due to the plethora or homeless hanging out

Jennifer R

I was the primary meeting planner and event coordinator for a meeting at this hotel and they were SO excellent Mary, the event planner that I primarily worked with and spoke to prior to my arrival in Portland, was exemplary and I am so appreciative for all her help In fact, I didn’t speak to a single employee of the hotel that wasn’t extremely helpful and friendly

The hotel itself is beautiful and the rooms were spacious and clean My meeting attendees had a great time and were very complimentary of the hotel and staff as well I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again as a guest (for personal travels) and my organization would certainly consider hosting another meeting at this hotel if/when we return to Portland

My wife and I spent a wonderful weekend in Portland celebrating our first marriage anniversary Hotel Lucia gave us such an amazing experience My wife included in our reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary, and once we got to our room we realized that we’d been put in their penthouse

Later, we were brought champagne! The staff was incredibly friendly and the room was beautiful with everything we needed Hotel Lucia now holds a special place in our hearts and will be where we stay when we visit Portland in the future!

Amber Chavez

Lacy checked us in and was a classic textbook case of what to do if you want to do this job right!! As a 20 year vet of the hospitality business, from Hilton to private bed & breakfast I will tell you this employee is a gem! Get Lacy on a management track ASAP!! Hospitality professionals like Lacy are few and far between His customer service skills are exemplary We extended our stay another night in no small part thanks to the amazing staff here! The management team at Hotel Lucia should give themselves a huge ‘atta boy! for retaining such a top notch staff!!

Jesse Baires

Stayed for a week and it’s definitely a place to stay for both the convenience of the location and the staff going above and beyond for customer service The atmosphere is a very clean and welcoming environment for when you want to workout at their gym or relax at their lounge for complimentary coffee and drinks When I think of coming back to Portland, I’ll be thinking of this place for sure

Thank you

Amazing stay Completely pet friendly, NO hidden pet fees, no weight limits, no breed restrictionsWe felt right at home

No funky smells Pet friendly restaurant patio Pet friendly walking pathsComfortable bed and pillows Good water pressure No road noise No sketchy drifters, which is rare for some areas of Portland these daysOther hotels claimed to be pet friendly, but when I called about pet fees because the booking was nonrefundable, it was $30 per dog at another hotel! Which would’ve made the room over 2x as expensive as I had 3 dogs with me

Piggy Pine

Lovely hotel by the river Is perfect to explore Portland The room was great

The view is of the marina, but also the bridges spanning the river – so a little noise from there Some good restaurants nearbyThe reason I removed a star for service is because not one member of staff in reception said good morning (or anything) as we walked through – even though we said it to them So our only interaction was check in and check out – efficient but not uber friendlyThe housecleaning crew, however, were lovely

j spain Greene

I stayed in 217, which was at the end of a hall It was large, with a peek a boo view of the river & one of the bridgesVery comfortable Queen bed, very clean

The bathroom was enormous with a standard style shower/tub combination There was a hide a bed, and actually enough room to open it and move comfortably, if neededThe restaurant is solid and has a good bar if you prefer to stay on premisesTwo things that knocked it down for me:-Hidden fees-Dour front desk person – I kept dealing with the same person, and they just made me feel unwelcome I asked a friend who was with me when I checked in if I was imagining it and she said, no – there was a weird vibe The desk person said all the right things but there was something perfunctory about them – it was over the course of 3 days, and there was never a lineso I don’t know Left a weird impressionAlso – if you are not from the area – I went a mark down on location only because it can be difficult to navigate in and out of the River area generally It’s beautiful though!!!

Marriott set their own bar…and this one has not met that bar; it’s Not worth the co$t Very disappointed Does not meet the Marriott standard

The staff was friendly and kindThe place is mostly cleaned well, other than a couple interesting mold growthsBreakfast: If you like breakfast burritos; Green Chili burritos are served Very tastyThe rooms we had were out of date (i lived in an apartment in 1990 that had the same kitchen and bathroom cabinets) The bathroom counter is a great height for a four year old, not so comfortable for even an average height adultThe bedside phone did not work (totally broken) The bathroom lighting is dim and not good for doing makeup The bathroom fan is loud as a muffler-less truck The bathroom floor tiles and grout are cracked And there is mold on the shower caulkingThe main floor bedroom space was not well planned (furniture not well placed) The kitchen had one days worth of coffee (one 12 cup pot) and only 4 packets of sugar The blankets are thin There are only four mugs and four water glasses for a place which can sleep up to sixThe business center is without wifi; no wireless printer, no internet access When one needs technology, but it is not made available… in this day and age, at this price point is there a good excuse?And a little heads up; the pool is not covered, therefore it’s not open 9 months of the yearThis was a disappointing stay

Brandy Carrico

Rooms are old and needs upgrades but despite that, they are clean and in decent shape Walls are thin You can hear the other guests cough in their rooms

Free breakfast and coffee every morning!Outdoor pool that’s open seasonallyAll of their washers are either not working or work horribly Don’t clean your clothes there if you can help it

Clint Houchens

To start, this was the worst experience I have ever had in a Marriott branded hotel I travel very frequently, enough to hold Marriotts highest loyalty level When I arrived the front desk staff was friendly and checkin was fine

When I went to my room and looked around the property, there are a lot of maintenance issues, it just looks dirty I entered my room and at first look it was OK, nothing great, a little tired but OK I always do an inspection of the bed and mattress What I found were bed bugs I took some pictures and left the room and went back to the front desk I let the front desk agent know what I found, she apologized and place me in another room I went to that room and found the same thing She met me at the room with a key to a 3rd room and when we went there, we could not open the door The key appeared to work, but the door was stuck At this point I asked to be checked out and asked if there was another Marriott property close I was told there was another hotel around the corner They didn’t offer to assist with getting a room there or offer any compensation for the huge inconvenience I never spoke to a Manager, and have never been contacted by management with an apology or a follow-up I would not recommend anyone stay at this property and in my opinion Marriott Corporate needs to take a deep look at this property 2 rooms with signs of Bed bugs and a run down exterior tells me the owner doesn’t care about this property
