The Heathman Hotel

The Heathman Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

One of Portland's best-known and oldest landmark hotels, The Heathman, built in 1927, is one of the most classically elegant spots to stay in town -- it was the setting for many of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" scenes. This centrally located property has 150 rooms, including suites, with an "Art of Sleep" bed menu offering guests a choice of TempurPedic, European Pillow-Top, or European Feather-Top beds. Other in-room extras include French coffee presses with Portland Roasting Company coffee. The Heathman includes a small business center and a fitness center, and free Wi-Fi throughout. A big highlight is the extensive lending library housing thousands of autographed editions, many by local authors or those who have stayed in the hotel. The on-site Heathman Restaurant and Bar gets rave reviews from visitors and Portlanders alike, and the daily afternoon tea in the Tea Court Lounge has become a bit of an institution in Portland. Considering its location and opulence, the Heathman's rates are reasonable, but guests might want to compare them with the Benson Hotel down the street, which has a similarly historic atmosphere and arguably more elegant rooms.
Embassy Suites Portland - Downtown

Embassy Suites Portland - Downtown Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The four-pearl Embassy Suites Portland - Downtown has an old-Portland atmosphere and upscale but laid-back vibe that combine to distinguish it from a standard Embassy Suite property. Formerly the historic Multnomah hotel, where Elvis stayed in 1957 and John F. Kennedy campaigned in 1960, the hotel has retained much of its original palatial architecture. The 276 rooms, including one- and two-bedroom suites, have been renovated, and some have conference tables and loft bedrooms. All come with 42-inch flat-screen HDTVs, microwaves, and mini-fridges. The hotel has a restaurant, which serves a free hot breakfast to guests, a business center and meeting spaces, a heated indoor free-form pool with whirlpool, a fitness center, and a game room. It also hosts a free evening cocktail reception. The downtown location is convenient to public transportation and several shops and eating places, but the immediate surroundings can feel a bit dicey, especially at night. Travelers might want to compare rates with the nearby Hotel Monaco, which is on a slightly less rowdy strip of downtown.
The Benson, a Coast Hotel

The Benson, a Coast Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Benson is a landmark hotel with the classic elegance and grandeur of a historic property. Though this hotel first opened in 1913, the spacious rooms have updated features such as big flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and bathrooms with modern fixtures. The Benson offers a big, cozy lobby with plenty of space for informal meetings, as well as the Palm Court for a relaxed meal. Additional hotel features include a nice fitness center and a 24-hour business center. This historic property has a convenient central location for exploring the Pearl District and Pioneer Square.
Hotel Monaco Portland -- a Kimpton Hotel

Hotel Monaco Portland -- a Kimpton Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Hotel Monaco is a top-notch hotel in Downtown Portland. Sure, some will find certain freebies a bit off-beat -- namely, the evening cocktail hour set up with brushes, canvases, and easels for guests to paint with; or the offer of a free companion goldfish for your room -- but this artsy hotel is decidedly upscale. Rooms are large, with bright, whimsical decor; local art is showcased on each floor; and Red Star Tavern hosts a popular happy hour.
