Residence Inn Portland Downtown/Lloyd Center
Travel Blogs from Portland
A visit to Portland Oregon gave us the opportunity to explore the city and the neighboring Columbia River Gorge and Mt. Saint Helens. In the city, we rode the tramway, visited the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, shopped at Powell's Books, and biked along the Willamette River. At the Columbia River Gorge, we climbed to the top of 620-foot …
... like you just got back from camping and no one will notice, because a lot of people look like they just stepped off a trail to somewhere. My kind of place. It's true of Colorado too. You can wear hiking boots with everything and no one blinks. D.C. needs more hiking boots. If you can wear tennis shoes with your suit on the way to work, you should be able to get away with hiking boots too. If more ...
... haddock was local north pacific, fresh, not frozen, and very tasty. We both agreed it was one of the finest seafood dinners we had in our memory. As you can guess we were very happy with the food and the transportation made it easy since we both had a couple cocktails. Tomorrow we will head south for Crater ...
... hatch salmon. Wrong time of the year for the interesting stuff but was a worthwhile visit anyway! After that we eased back onto the scenic highway and checked out the impressive collection of waterfalls. The first one (horsetail falls) was the only one you could swim in and Francesca immediately donned her swimming costume and braved the icy waters. All the waterfalls were spectacular ...

Stage 5: The Surreality Starts to Set In. Why again did I sign up for this immersion? What am I trying to achieve exactly? The only reason that I feel like this is actually real is because I read Kristie's blog about it and the Fenner family is actually living it right now.

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.
