Haqving never stayed at an Embassy Hotel before, we were pleasantly surprised by the amenities offered. When we arrived in late afternoon on a blustery cold and windy day, we were told to be sure and come down to the reception area for complimentary cocktails and hors d ourves served from 5:30 to 7:30. It was quite a spread.n In fact there was enough food that we never left for dinner. In the morning, the full breakfast including an omelet station was excellent. That too was complimentary. This location is a park and fly hotel, but many of the guests were from small communities close by and stay at the hotel for a mini-vacation. All in all I would return if ever in Portland again.
The room was spotless! The breakfast was a real breakfast with eggs, ham, waffles, fruit and traditional continental items. The staff was polite and efficient. When I awoke on the second day to a severe ice storm, they had complimentary scrapers at the desk, and one of the hotel staff saw me struggling with breaking the ice (I have arthritis) and he came over to assist! Incredible and unexpected value for the price!
Everything about the stay was fantastic as one would expect from a Marriott. However the outstanding feature was the General Manager Ed Palmer. It had snowed heavily and when I got up early to clear our car, I noticed Marriott staff clearing the cars in the lot. It was when I went to find the manager to thank him/her for the service that I realized that it was Ed Palmer, the general manager with senior staff that were clearing the snow ladden cars.
It was also evident from the interactions I witnessed during the day that this Ed treated his staff extremely well, and the atmosphere engendered by Ed made this one of our most memorable stays.
This is a beautifully restored house and decorated with lovely antiques and art. The innkeepers were attentive to all our needs and went out of their way to make sure they were accommodating our needs. Both Linda and Jim were friendly and we enjoyed our conversations while watching TV and during breakfast coffee. We did not choose to have breakfast, however the innkeeper made us coffee and it was delicious. This B & B was in a convenient location to the airport and central to most areas we wanted to visit. The air conditioner worked well. Our room was small with an in room bath. Even though it was a small room, it was planned well and met our needs.

For the amount of money i spent on two rooms, i was incredibly pleased. the staff was polite, even though we overslept and missed checkout by a half hour. the rooms were clean, the beds were comfy, and even though they were lacking on shower stuff, the bathrooms were wonderful. we didn't get disturbed, nor did we get hassled for our constant smoke breaks on the balcony and slightly excitable nature. the rooms were very well sound proofed, and the grounds were well kept. i'd definitely go back if i had to go to portland again. :]
We stayed here just as a stop on a roadtrip. They'd had a flash floor and there was considerable flood damage to the lobby level that was under repair. The upper levels were fine though, our room was clean and very comfortable, there was no renovation noise. The WiFi was free and the staff were lovely. Would definitely recommend this.
