Mark Spencer is located centrally and within walking to many places. Loved that Powell's Books is less than 2 blocks away. Dining is a short walk into the Pearl District with a great variety of choices. We are glad we chose MSH and hope to visit Portland again.

Charming hotel conveniently located in Pearl District. Super friendly staff. We were surprised to find they upgraded us to a King corner suite and it was wonderful. Luxury linens, comfortable bed, spacious, on-site parking. Ideal for our sight seeing purpose.

This hotel has a nice mix of modern and old charm. The rooms are a nice size with very comfortable beds and pillows. For being located in the heart of Portland is quiet and peaceful. One of my favorites. I might add that the secure parking is also a great value.

The hotel is located in SW Portland, conveniently near public transportation as well as the artsy Pearl District, Powell's Books, and some great restaurants like Jake's Famous Crawfish, the Zeus Palace, and Cheryl's on 12th among others. If you're uncomfortable with an environment featuring both luxury and poverty, you should be advised that the neighborhood has both-- several panhandlers and, late at night, there was shouting and, once, a fight right outside our 5th floor windows facing Harvey Milk Street. On the plus side, there was also live entertainment on the same street a couple of times, including the fantastic Kathryn Grimm and the Blues Tools. The hotel itself was a mixed bag- the standard rooms are small, the cost pretty spendy for what you get, amenities (wine reception, continental breakfast, a daily NY Times, housekeeping, a coupon book for local businesses) not offered (mostly blamed on the pandemic), etc. Some small inconveniences like the one ice machine located in the basement and having to go to the front desk for morning coffee. But staff was friendly and competent, and really what mattered to us was that we got to meet up with old friends for a long weekend.
