... sweating out boxes off during the ride. Next to the Japenese Garden was the International Rose Test Gardens. This is was in an open grassed area with rows and rows of different coloured roses.
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.

So we end the day in Portland – staying in a comfortable business chain hotel that could be anywhere in the U.S., eating a Texas BBQ dinner, and feeling the casual relaxed and friendly ambience from the locals that we remember of the Pacific Northwest. It’s been a long day but we’re filled with expectation for ...
Arriving at the airport, waiting a long time to get through customs, but once it’s my turn I walk through easily and pick up my backpack. Seeing Hermine, walking over to me with her arms wide open to embrace me, moves me deeply inside. It has been almost a year, after the Human Rights Conference in The Hague since we last saw each other, and here I am welcomed to her new home. Is this real?

... and areas abroad. Stay tuned as this was one of the more difficult areas for me to prepare in advance. I have heard adapters are available in China and for a much better price than what I probably paid for them. However, I am not willing to find out of this is true or not via the hard way, nor do I want to spend time looking for them.

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.
