Loved this hotel. Quality materials throughout. Great location for Portland, OR. Breakfast, afternoon cookies and tea, and evening wine reception were very welcomed. Large rooms and bathrooms. Enjoyed the full kitchen in our room as we were here several days.

My daughter, who is well travelled, says it might have been the nicest hotel she ever stayed in. Spacious rooms. Very nice beds and bedding.
We could have done without the Pride event noise next door.

This old hotel is beautifully remodeled and comfortable. Location is great for anyone interested in downtown or Pearl District activities. And, surprisingly, the rooms are well insulted from street noise, much quieter than the more modern hotels at which we have stayed in Portland.

Our first visit to Portland could not have been any better. Staying at the
Mark Spencer Hotel was an excellent choice. Located in the heart of The Pearl District everything is just out your front door. The hotel is older with lots of personality and charm. We had a corner King with a great view. Our room was very clean and extremely quiet. Breakfast and Wine in the afternoon are only one more reason to stay at The Mark Spencer Hotel. The hotel staff was pleasant and went out of their way to be helpful. Excellent Choice!

Older building, nicely updated. Comfortable bedding, near restaurants, transportation,. Parking under hotel at $25 seemed reasonable for us. However an outdoor lot is in the area and would save probably $10. It was worth it to take the elevator up to the lobby, especially due to wind and rain. We enjoyed the wine and cheeses and cookies. Breakfast was totally satisfactory, as we did not want a bacon and eggs meal. The croissants, doughnuts, juice, coffee hit the spot.
