Hilton Portland & Executive Tower
Travel Blogs from Portland
I was travelling in the Pacific Northwest on Business and decided to throw in a weekend away with the boy in Portland. This is really my kind of town; great food, lots of art and public parks, good coffee and many microbreweries.
We started our Friday night with a walk around the old part of the city. The old architecture blends …
Portland came out of nowhere on our drive from Grant's Pass. We travelled up through more mountains, and then followed a river for a bit, and then all of a sudden we had to cross over a bridge and that put us straight into downtown Portland, about 5mins away from our hotel. It was so great staying in the middle of the city and being within walking …
Hey y'all! I'm going to start saying y'all a lot cuz my senior counselor's name is Mallory and she's from Texas and when she gets angry or confused, she says y'all a lot and it's very amusing. Times are great here. I'm bloody exhausted from a very long week with some very amazing 3rd graders! We were so blessed with such a great group of girls. I …

Riding back towards the city down hill was a lot easier and much more fun. We rode down to the Riverfront where there were bike paths and grassed areas lining the water way.
They had two water fountains along the way which lots of kids ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Portland & Executive Tower
My husband and I were disappointed with our room on 8/14/04. The hotel central air/vent system was very noisy in the room (2225). It sounded like a low volumn vacuum cleaner. We notice it was just as bad in the hallway the next morning. We did not sleep well because of this. The caulk that was around the bathtub had mold on it. There was a large black stain on the carpet next to the bed. The room we had was very small. We had just enough room to walk around the bed. The bathroom was too small.
Portland Hilton Downtown comfortable, solid
We stayed at the Portland Hilton Downtown (not the Exec Twr) for a great internet weekend rate. Beds were very comfy. Yes, room was small & bathroom was just basic. . . but if I were looking for a large hotel room to spend time in, I would have specified that to the hotel. Hotel was very clean, concierge was on the mark with his recommendations, and restaurant service at brkfst was excellent. Great location, too!
Hilton Exec Tower: five stars
The parking staff in the garage
I stayed 2 weeks ago at the LV Hilton, and had such a great stay that I hoped to repeat that experience in Portland while visiting the art museum. The attendants when I checked in and checked out where so unspeakably rude that I will never recommend or stay at the Hilton again. The garage is leased, but it gives guests a very negative impression of the Hilton. The room and Hilton stay in the hotel were courteous and polite, and our room was as depicted.
A wonderful weekend
We booked our room through priceline. We had a great corner room on the 6th floor. Very quiet. Room had everything we needed - bed was great. we walked to the MAX train- no need to commute through downtown traffic. There is a fareless sqaure that took us wherever we needed to go. The staff was very helpful. We would go back again anytime!
Candidate for Demolition
Unless they put you in the Executive Tower, AVOID THIS HOTEL!! This property has two separate buildings-- the newer executive tower which has nice, quiet rooms with good service and lighting, and the older, original building, which SERIOUSLY needs to meet the business end of a wrecking ball. I have stayed in both, most recently in the older building because the executive tower was full. The room on the 14th floor had extremely noisy plumbing, which made noise all night long.
Rooms are small, tv is small and it basically sucked. I am a Hilton Honors member (Silver) and stay at Hilton a lot. This place is the worst I have ever experienced. With all of the other hotels close by, there is really no reason to subject yourself to this place.
Would return to Portland, OR again
I stayed at the Hilton downtown Portland, OR. It was a lovely hotel for the price and walking distance to the River and restaurant. Portland's transit system is wonderful! I recommend anyone flying in to take the rail system they have at the airport for $1.60 it will take you to downtown Portland - I think this is wonderful! We payed $30.00 in cab fare when we arrived but took the rail back to the airport when leaving.
Pleased in Portland
I stayed at this hotel along with some collegues for a work assignment that was a few blocks away. I remember the room as being spotless and some bottled water was included. I can't remember if that was just because I was a Hilton Honors member or if it was available to all guests. They certainly went the extra mile for me. I accidentally dropped a piece of jewelry in the bathroom sink and notified maintenance immediately. When I returned the same afternoon it had been retrieved. Overall, I found the service there to be very attentive, the location convenient, and the room quite comfortable and attractive.
Huge, full service hotel in downtown Portland. $20 per day for parking. Lots of traffice noise in the room. Room spacious and clean. Resturants and Bar overpriced
Friendly and Comfortable
We attended a conference here and found it quite comfortable. Ask for a corner room, and high up if you can get one, for the views. Very comfortable bed, smallish bathroom, very friendly staff. Great location for walking around downtown. Lunch in the lounge was tasty - try the crab quesadilla.
