Residence Inn Portland Downtown/Lloyd Center

... everyone did report in and we decided to extend this shoot another hour. Why? Because this 5 ½ acres is a haven of tranquility and stunning beauty! It is a plethora of lush greenery, waterfalls, ponds, shallow streams, ferns, mosses, pagodas, bridges, poetry stones, sand art and a majestic view of Portland, Mt. Hood and a herd of cats!
Side Note: I still couldn't bring myself to haul around ...
... in Angul about 1 hour from here. I am 5 minutes by car from the village of Boinda which is about 10,000 people. I am staying at an office/training center and have a nice room and bathroom. Laura says it is much improved since she was here last. Food is plentiful and authentic Indian, a little spicy but I am adapting. Just have to have my hankerchief with me when I eat!! We ...
I knew there were two classmates on the plane so I wore my CCS T-Shirt in hopes of finding them. Sherry walked right up and asked: are you Shanna or Karen. We hit it off right away talking about the paper due this week. We are both so excited about the trip. Now we just need to find ...
... probably just as happy at home. He's an 'indoor kitten' and will play Legos for hours and not choose to go out. If we get him out, he's usually fairly happy, but the getting there is the hard part- and then he's back to Legos for many hours.
He has limited interest in sightseeing- like if it's a train or science museum, he likes to ride public transit in other cities, and eat out. He's glad to see relatives if that's part of the travel. He gets a ...
... only the fur from the inner ears or the tail, depending on the age of the animal and on the animal itself, would suffice.

Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn Portland Downtown/Lloyd Center
Free - Free
Free parking - Free breakfast - Free internet - Easy access to the highway. Comfy bed. What else can a business traveler want. I would stay again.
My husband and I have stayed here twice to visit family in the vicinity. Our first visit a year ago was perfectly acceptable, though not remarkable enough to warrant writing a review. Our visit last month, however, was a letdown.
This is just your basic Residence Inn. Good Location, Friendly Staff, Good Breakfast, and good Maid Service. What else do you want?
I've stayed at this hotel twice now and was very pleased both times. Three years ago I stayed in a 2-bedroom unit with family; more recently, I stayed in a studio unit by myself. On the more recent trip, I was a woman traveling alone with a fully packed SUV, and in booking accommodations I was very concerned about security. Other properties in the Lloyd Center district are rather too close to homeless hangouts for comfort, but not the Residence Inn: it bordered on a quiet, residential area, was fully fenced, and left me no cause for worry. In fact, I could back my car up very close to my unit so that I could watch it. I _would_ second the other poster's comment about not walking back alone from the MAX train late at night, though: the park next to the MAX stop (several blocks away from the hotel) is definitely a gathering spot!
I read the review from the person from Sheffield, England, and began to second guess my reservation. But then thought; it is part of the Marriott chain, so how bad could it be?
We stayed only one night at the Residence Inn out of our pre booked three nights because of the location, small breakfast room, noise from the freeway, poorly lit car park and all those stairs!
Would not stay again.
Residence Inn GREAT
We were very please with the accomodations. My only complaint with any hotel/motel is that they do not "clean" their carpets. Walking around in white socks will soon show you how dirty the carpets are. They had a great breakfast, friendly staff and great rooms. I would recommend Residence Inn at the Lloyd Center to anyone going to Portland.
I got this hotel through Priceline and wasn't quite sure what to expect. All my friends were staying at the Marriot Downtown and it was fully booked by the time I wanted to make a reservation. The hotel is great. the staff are friendly and polite. Good breakfast buffet. The rooms are very spacios and the kitchen for those who like to make their own meals is a great addition. The room was very clean and well kept but they did'nt seem to clean much while I was there. Other than that I really recommend the hotel. The location is also OK. it's next to a mall and close enough to downtown. Public transport is great in Portland although I woudln't recommend using it after 10pm if you travel alone.
Great place to stay
First time visitor to Residence Inn and I was very impressed.
Clean,large rooms with all the amenities. Staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast offered all the choices a restaurant would!- from fresh waffles to fruit and cereal, even eggs,biscuits and gravy.
Close to a many attractions, and safe for the single traveller. Highly recommended.
Since our family has outgrown the in-laws house, we've been staying here on our trips to Portland. It is such a good location, near Lloyd Center which has shopping, restaurants and theaters and an easy walk to the Max station which makes everything else very accessible! The rooms are great; I highly recommend the penthouse for families. The staff was nice and the property well kept-up. The only downside was probably the breakfast. Although it was adequate, it can get crowded and you may have trouble finding a place to sit during the most popular hours. You can always get a tray and bring it back to your room since you'll have a table there as well. I still highly recommend it and I will definitely be staying there again in the future.
