Great location. Key access to most everything worth seeing in the downtown area. A stout walk to the Rose Garden and Japanese garden. Nice older hotel which is nicely appointed. Super cozy beds and the kitchen area is excellent!

Mark Spencer Hotel is perfectly located for enjoying the attractions of Portland and surrounding areas. Safe and secure parking, easy access to/from I-405, ideally located to satisfy a book-lovers pilgrimage (on foot) to the City of Books. And easy walking distance to food, drinks, shops.

I really love this hotel. Very comfortable rooms and well priced. It’s in a fun neighborhood which has lots of great places to eat and shop. Very comfortable and spacious room with lovely Roman curtains. Great old historic building. This was my second time staying here and I do recommend it if going to Portland.

We spent 4 nights here and it was a pleasure. Clean beautiful rooms, friendly helpful staff, and super comfy bed. It's in a busy slightly hectic part of town, but it felt like a cozy oasis to come back to.

Stayed here for a mother-daughter birthday weekend and we both really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a double queen room with a kitchenette. Admittedly it was more than we needed but still enjoyed it nonetheless. The room was very clean, the front desk service was super friendly and helpful, and location was perfect. I told my husband that the next time we go to Portland, we have to take the whole family (5 of us) and must stay at this hotel.

The friendly staff went above and beyond to assist us. Great location, clean quiet room, onsite underground parking, and a kitchenette. We couldn’t have asked for a better hotel experience. I will definitely be staying here again when I travel to Portland.

The location can't be beat -- just steps away from Powell's Bookstore, Deschute's Brewery and tons of good options for food. Our room was clean and confortable, the bathroom was well-appointed, and while we didn't try any of the grab & go breakfast options, we appreciated the fact that they were inexpensive (cheaper than Starbucks). The garage parking is a bit nerve-wracking -- lots of tight corners and tiny spaces hemmed in by pillars -- but it was nice to have the option and not have to deal with street parking.

Everything was great but the The The hotel was great, but the homeless people outside made me wonder if it was safe to walk around in the neighborhood other than that it was fine. It was also great that they provided parking but it was a bit tight going up and down in the car because of the narrow driveways and ramps.
