Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel Portland Airport
We had an overnight stay at the Clarion before taking a flight out the next morning. Upon reading all of the positive reviews, the place sounded good. The room was clean, the shuttle drivers prompt and courteous, the pool and spa clean and spacious. We were unable to taste the complimentary breakfast as we had to leave too early. Shari's was right across the street and some other stores were within walking distance (electronics, Home Depot, and a craft store). The only negatives were the lobby was being renovated and the hallways are not air conditioned.
Enjoyed our Stay
My husband and I enjoyed our two-night stay the Silver Cloud Inn/Portland Airport in November 2005. Being close to the airport is very convenient, and it was great that we could print our boarding passes 24 hours prior to our flight. Our room had a comfortable bed, and we liked having two basins so we did not have to wait to get ready in the morning. We enjoyed the continental breakfast. For other meals, Shari's Restaurant is across the street and has good food. We had our dinners there after sightseeing during the day. Should we return to Portland, we will stay at the Silver Cloud Inn again.
Beware of this hotel!!
The property is clean and convenient IF you have no problems with your room. If you have problems, do NOT expect to be treated well. No one we encountered seemed the least concerned that we did not get a decent night's sleep for our entire stay. Here's our story:
We spent 2 nights at this hotel and it ruined our lovely vacation to Oregon. The first night we were without air conditioning because it stopped working by midnight. We were uncomfortable all night and went down to breakfast as early as possible to complain and get some relief. They promised to fix the problem by the time we returned from our outing that day and they did. We were happy until 1AM when the smoke alarm decided to beep incessantly. We had to be up at 3AM to catch our shuttle to the airport so we disconnected the smoke alarm and tried to muffle it with pillows. Since that failed and it continued to beep, my husband had to get dressed and bring the alarm to the front desk at 2AM.
After 2 sleepness nights in a row, we were horrified to have the front desk staff tell us that they had deducted $22.50 from our total bill for "our inconvenience". I told them that was unsatisfatory but they did nothing more. When I got no response to my email after returning home, I contacted American Express. American Express managed to get them to reimburse us an additional $50. We still believe this to be woefully unsatisfactory.
Very peaceful place
We have stayed at many hotels, and motels. I would have to say it is the best place we have ever stayed. The rooms and whole place were very clean, the breakfast was extraordinary, the view was peaceful, the beds were comfortable. We never heard airplanes. The pool and hot tub were wonderful and treated with salt. The staff was wonderful. I would encourage anyone to stay at this hotel. The prices were just what we were looking for also. You will enjoy yourselves and be treated like royalty there. I know we plan to go back sometime.
Good Location and Value
We stayed at the Silver Cloud Inn for two days in July 2005. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel and the good size of the room.
The complimentary breakfast was very substantial and food was replenished whenever it got low.
The Silver Cloud Inn was near excellent restaurants and fun shops.
For the value and location we are looking forward to staying there again.
Good Experience at Silver Cloud
We stayed at the Silver Cloud in Portland as a stopover on our way to Seattle. We arrived at about 6pm and check-in was handled smoothly by the front desk attendant (we booked through Expedia).
We had a first floor room with a view of the river at the back of the property. Although the room was, by no means, large it was well appointed and clean. The only feature that was a bit unusual was the tubless shower. It was more or less "Roman style" in that there was no showerpan, only a gently sloping tile floor that emptied the water to a drain near the center of the bathroom floor. This made for a slightly damp bathroom floor (especially with 4 people occupying the room) but it wasn't really a problem. Be advised of this little idosyncracy, however, if you or your traveling companions prefer evening baths to showers.
The pool is indoor and heated. While we didn't have the opportunity to take a dip, we took a look and could see that it was well-maintained. The hotel offers use of a PC in the lobby for high speed internet access at no charge and the connection in the room worked perfectly as well (just remember your LAN cable!).
There are several restaurants are close by (everything from fast food to full service) and various other stores in the vicinity (including a drive-through car wash across the street).
The hotel was quiet and we enjoyed a restful night's sleep. The continental breakfast offerings were quite good (including fresh Belgian waffles) and the dining area was comfortable and clean as well. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay at the Silver Cloud.
Do you believe they offered bathrobes?
We booked the king size with whirlpool. The room was very large and came with 2 bathrobes (not bad for a hotel that doesn't start with Ritz.) A 'fridge, micro, and coffee maker. The room overlooked the "pond" which is really a man made thing but it did create the illusion I was in the country and not in some airport hotel. The newspaper was delivered to my door and wasn't the USA TODAY but rather some local paper. The free breakfest was good and offered several hot foods.
Take note; the hotel is very clsoe to the National/ Alamo car rental site. Which was very convient for us when it came to dropping off our car.
Great place to stay before a flight early the next morning
This is my favorite hotel to stay at before catching my flight back to Hawaii. Rooms are spacious and clean as is the rest of the hotel. There is free internet access using a computer in the lobby area. They offer free breakfast and newspaper everyday except that I don't know if they offer a sunday paper since I never stayed on a saturday night. The hotel shuttle is one of the necessities for my purposes but what really helps is to have a Shari's just across the street so that I don't have to go hungry if I feel like eating something late at night. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be close to the airport to catch an early morning flight and wants a nice clean hotel with a safe shuttle ride to the airport.
A Real Bargain
Was in Portlan on business and wanted a nice place to stay at a reasonable price....defenitely found it with the Silver Cloud Inn....The room was very spacious and clean.....only minutes from downtown Portland...and only blocks away from a great shopping street with cafes and boutiques....would recommend without hesitation....
Affordable & Comfortable
I read reviews of the Silver Cloud downtown on this very website as well as on Yahoo Travel, and everyone gave it a high rating. I was somewhat skeptical, as based on exterior photos, the place doesn't appear upscale by any definition. However, I decided to not judge a hotel by its exterior, and made my reservations. I'm delighted I did. The outside isn't bad, but the inside is quite nice. The rooms were very well-appointed and nicely decorated, including having one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on. It was quite affordable to boot, and very near the cool Nob Hill area. I recommend the Silver Cloud wholeheartedly!
