They love dogs and that made us happy! Room was beautiful! We were right next to the elevator and that was super convenient for our dog needs but we could hear the elevator open and close all night which was annoying. Not much you can do about that though.
We discussed the problem with the room temp 5 times and until 8 pm on our last night did the desk person tell us it was not turned on. This was not very good for us. Our room was newly renovated.
Its been awhile since I have stayed at Marc Spencer but the renovations are amazing. My roomwas on the first floor that used to be mini suites a long time ago. I was lucky to have a room with a view of the stage for this year's pride block part . Was a blast! I'll definetly be coming back!
The only thing wrong was I wish I could've stayed more than one night :-(
construction. very old building. lights didn't work in room.
Located in downtown near the Pearl District.
A little cramped for space. Bathroom outdated.
Great room, staff and location! We will be back!
From booking to check out, was a wonderful experience for our first time in Portland, A very clean and unique room from design to the pictures on the wall. The staff was very polite and helpful with all of our needs and requests. we will be staying at the Mark Spencer again. soon
For our first trip to Portland, this hotel had a prime location for when we did our tours across town. Given the area, it never took much time to get to and from, and to keep busy with all the opportunities available.
While the hotel staff were friendly, and our room and other amenities were fine, we did get placed in a room next to major construction going on in the rooms next door. Buzz saws at 9:00 in the morning is not something I find appealing about my hotel stay. We stayed for three nights, two mornings. The first morning, I was up early and did not make a fuss. The second morning, the noise was too much to bare. I called the front desk and was offered a room change, but since we were leaving very early the next day, the inconvenience outweighed the option. I understand hotels go through modifications, but my preference would have been for the staff to have enough foresight and not placed anyone in the hall, let alone the room right next to major construction.
The staff was extremely helpful, and very accommodating. We got upgraded to a larger bed, and was also offered help for dinner options and entertainment every night. They even have a small kitchenette, if your trying to save a little money on food.
The roof garden wasn't open yet, that was the only bummer. Just means we will have to come back in the summer!
The hotel is clean, convenient and quiet. I stayed here probably 15 or 20 years ago and it has been substantially cleaned up, renovated, and remodeled. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast buffet and other food serving is great. It's a great value for a great hotel at a great location. Highly recommended.
They are doing a little construction now (February 2014) so if you need to sleep during the day, you might want to pick another hotel.
