This is a nice hotel in a fantastic, walkable location. Staff were friendly. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quite spacious and had a small kitchenette. Our only complaint was with the cleanliness of parts of the room, and that our concerns were not addressed.

Hotel's Favorite
The Mark Spencer was in a fantastic location, close to many great restaurants, shopping and things to do. Staff were friendly and helpful. Bed was pillowy and soft. Shower worked great. Mini fridge and microwave in room. Free wine and cheese in the lobby every night. Parking was $25 right under the building (you really do not need a car). Overall wonderful.

The hotel was exactly as advertised. The rooms are clean. The staff was pleasant. We stayed in a premium corner king room and it looks just like the pictures. There is a wine tasting from 5-6 daily in the lobby. The hotel is dog friendly. There is a small parking lot under the hotel and overflow across the street. The man who checked us in on Sunday 2/25/2024 was smooth and professional. He had a great demeanor. I’m unsure of his name, but he appeared to be the only one working. Any hotel would be lucky to have him.

Beautifully preserved and updated hotel. Staff, from housekeeping to front desk to bell desk went out of their way to greet us, check in on our day and help us with directions. I haven't encountered this kind of welcoming hospitality in awhile. 24/7 coffee and evening wine reception were lovely bonuses. Our 2 queen bed room was large, modern, great amenities. MRT transport nearby and easy to use. Shopping and restaurants are easily walkable.Cant miss Powells bookstore!

The hotel was cute and inviting. There is no drawer space available which could make it challenging for a longer stay. The space in the room itself is ok for a two day stay if you don’t mind living out of your suitcase.

Tucson, Arizona1 contribution
We stayed for 2 nights at the Mark Spencer Hotel. Our room and kitchenette was clean and nicely decorated. There was a wad of hair on the shower wall so that was a bit off putting in the beginning. The staff was mostly friendly and helpful except for the gentleman out front. He did not offer any assistance when we were struggling with our luggage in the rain. The noise from the construction next door woke us up much earlier than we would have liked and the breakfast menu could use a few more options. However, the location of the hotel was perfect! It was a 10 minute walk to everything we wanted to do. Lots of restaurants and coffee shops nearby. We would certainly book here again.

Can find no fault, rather MSH exceeded all expectations from room price and size to the saved and last garage pass, to wine tasting and cheese, to locals info on MAX transport, to affiliation with Cheryls, which was off the hook!! MODA center is readily accessed by MAX rail both to and fro, no issues at all. Parking in lower garage s quite squeazy, if you can get it, but worth it to me at $32. Parking options across the street may be acceptable as necessary. Especially in light of some PDX trepidations, SMH redeems the city one stay at a time!! So impressed, I have made reservations for another stay!
