Historical Traveler Reviews Silver Cloud Inn NW Portland
Loved the Silver Cloud Inn
We stayed a week at the Silver Cloud Inn. It was so nice. The people at the desk are great and informative. The rooms are so clean and the breakfasts, although billed as Continental, include waffles! You make them from the prepared batter and they are done in minutes. The rooms have a refrigerator, so you can pack in yogurt and keep sodas cold.
The Inn is located right next to a bus stop, so we didn't use our car hardly at all. We went to downtown Portland to Powell's Books and the Saturday Market. The area around the Inn is safe to walk at night - there's the 23rd avenue shops for eating and shopping. Pepino's burritos are the best value!
Another plus is that parking is free and it's sheltered and next to the office. Some Portland hotels charge for parking. Great price and nice place to stay!! We enjoyed staying there and will do so again. You gotta love people who keep salt water taffy in a big bowl at the desk and serve free wine and cheese on Tuesday nights!!
Nice People - Nice Property!
The people make a property in most cases. This property has great people! From the front desk, to the sales manager who hosts the Tuesday eveneing manager's reception, and even the housekeeping staff, everyone here is on the same page! I stayed here for two weeks in November 2004, and my entire expereince was very positive. I opted for the Spa King room to releieve my aching bones at the end of long days - it was great! Very clean, very comfortable - A+!!
Nice place and close to shopping and restaurants
We stayed there for a weekend in late October 2004. It was as the others reviewed about it. Clean, large comfortable room with a free morning paper and great continental breakfast. The staff was very friendly and gave us a list of restaurants
and their locations that were nearby, it helped a LOT ! It had everything but the view. Very reasonable price, was very satisfied.
We stayed three nights at the Silver Cloud in Sept 2004 - great! This hotel had everything you needed - a clean, cozy room, a comfortable bed and a nice shower. No thrills, but truely comfy. The staff was nice and helpful. Would absolutely stay again.
I recently stayed at this hotel and was extremely satisified. The location was great -- close to neat shopping and many excellent restaurants. The rooms were exceptionally clean and nicely appointed. I watch my nutrition pretty carefully and was very happy that I could put together a healthful breakfast from the free breakfast bar. The staff was exceedingly pleasent and helpful and the ice water in the lobby was also very nice and refreshing. Another nice surprise was the high speed internet access. The hotel does have a wireless system, but we were unable to connect to that system. We did not bring a cable for the wired internet access, but the hotel had one available that we borrowed during our stay. We had a room on the back side of the hotel and it was very quiet. This was a great hotel and I will definitely stay here again next time I visit.
I also stayed one night at the Silver Cloud -- Portland Airport, and can happily report that everything I said about the Northwest location applies to the airport hotel property. It's a very convenient airport if you need to be close to the airport.
Silver Cloud Inn Airport
We stayed at the Silver Cloud Inn Airport on a trip to Portland for my sister's college graduation. The hotel was very clean and the staff personable and helpful when needed. We were able to get around town fine from this location. It was great to have fresh fruit and coffee or tea available all day as we were coming and going. There were breakfast foods and juice in the public area beside the lobby in the morning.
Nice to have when you are dashing off for the day. If you need your eggs and bacon in the morning there is a restaurant right across the street. The pool was indoors and clean. Our only problem was a hot tub that was much too hot. We informed the staff but the problem was not resolved before we departed. My sister's future inlaws, my brother and his girlfriend and my mom, all also stayed here. Everyone was pleased and said they would stay here again. The room rate was very good and competitive with the surrounding hotels. I think we paid $79 a night but no more than $100 a night. If you find yourself going to Portland, this is a great place to stay!
Home away from home
I've stayed here many times over the past eight years and it truly feels like a home away from home. This past October I had to travel to Portland for business and I flew out a day early (at my own expense) simply because I wanted to spend some time in the Nob Hill district and enjoy another great stay at the Silver Cloud. Clean, comfortable, convenient. It's not a luxury hotel but I've never stayed at a hotel that feels so inviting and relaxing.
Great value and greater service!
We love the Silver Cloud in downtown Portland. We stay there at least once a year! A few years back we stayed at the Silver Cloud at the Portland Airport and had a great experience there ... but we wanted to be located in the downtown area, so we tried their downtown location.
It's fabulous. Always clean and a very nice front desk staff (on every visit)! We liked their breakfast buffet on our previous trips and were very happy on our most recent trip (Oct 2003) to find that they had remodeled their dining area. Now they offer hot griddles to make your own 'from batter' waffles with warm syrup, yogurt, fruit, cereals (all the usual buffet breakfast items).
You can't beat the location ... you can get to downtown or the Rose Quarter in just minutes! The hotel is right next to a major freeway on/off-ramp, within walking distance of Portland's trendy 23rd Street with its many restaurants, and near Portland's easy-to-use public transportation. (Plus the hotel offers free parking.)
The hotel is newer and the rooms still seem fresh. I noticed a jack for internet connection in the room and they also have a internet connected computer in the lobby that guests can use for free!
Oh, and they have coffee makers in the rooms (as well as hair dryers, irons, and ironing boards), but we never made our own coffee because there is always a variety of flavors of fresh coffee in the dining area along with flavored creamers (not the powdered stuff) and a basket of fresh fruit. And on hot days, be sure to help yourself to a glass of ice water with lemon in it which is always available in the lobby!
a excellent hotel/inn 10to15min walk to down town or catch a tram very helpful staff if in portland will stay there again the con/ breakfast was excellent and plenty of it great
Nice Hotel near downtown Portland
Nice rooms, helpful staff, easy walk to 23rd St. restaurants, and shops. I will be returning for future trips.

... Native American geometric patterns with lots of bright vivid colors.
After the tour and browsing the Mill Store we went to downtown Pendleton. We found a tour of Underground Pendleton! The underground area was built in the late 1800’s by the Chinese to have their businesses and living space. These Chinese had been working on the railroad but when it was completed to the west coast there were thousands of Chinese workers who had to ...
... well that it probably was. Anyway, we got out of there and started to wander around. The streets were packed, but as mentioned before there didn’t seem to be an air of chaos like in India or Jakarta for example. The pavements were well maintained, the people polite, the buildings vast, the neon lights generously applied and the number of Chinese herbalists too innumerable to count. Looking up we saw apartment blocks that seemed to reach up into the clouds; all having teeny tiny ...
... but in a ball) I had the 'Southern' meatloaf, mashed spud and some kale (I needed some greens)! FYI...the little balls called Hush Puppies originate from the earlier slave days when the workers would eat their meal and the dogs would get restless and yelp or bark for food. The 'scraps' were rolled up in a ball and fed to the dogs, to keep them quiet...ie...Hush Puppies! These were yummy tasting scraps - thanks Robby for looking ...
... like this one. It might be exactly the same, I will just have to wait and see. Turns out the train to Portland is much nicer than the one to the good old Gold Coast. We have a table in between 4 chairs that face each other. Pretty good amount of leg room, and pretty comfortable chairs. Only problem is the dude behind me doesn't know how to sit still. Not ideal! I'm taking some beautiful pictures along the way, I'm seeing space and I really like that. Will ...
... Charlotte you’ve found it or words to that effect. Colin who works from home greeted us and seemed really nice, we are both a bit nervous of being in someone else’s home without paying them and we don’t really know what to expect. We got things sorted in the room which is nice but just doesn’t have a door but it’s not much of an issue. We chatted to Colin who suggested we check out the neighbourhood of here around Mississippi as downtown is a ...
