The Nines Portland

Portland, Oregon

The hotel

Taking over the top floors of downtown Portland’s iconic Meier & Frank building, The Nines delivers uncompromising luxury, style, and location. It’s just steps from Pioneer Square, one of the city’s leading landmarks, and is surrounded by shopping and dining opportunities. The Nines’ own food is faultless from top to bottom: the atrium’s Urban Farmer steakhouse accompanies farm-to-fork dishes with local moonshine punch; while the rooftop houses Departure, a sleek Asian dining room with Portland’s biggest saké list and two outdoor patios, offering city, Willamette River, and mountain views. But, if you’re just looking for a simple bar snack and cocktail after hitting the hotel’s fitness centre, The Library lets you sink into its leather sofas, cossetted in the comforts of this book-lined sanctuary.

Where is it

Right next to Pioneer Square, this hotel is well located for shopping, for Pearl District’s dining, and for a stroll to the microbreweries. There’s a MAX light rail connection across the street, making exploring easy, but you’re within half a mile of cultural musts like Portland Art Museum, The Portland Center for the Performing Arts, and Powell’s Books. It’s also 2.3 miles to Portland Rose Gardens, and 2.9 miles to Washington Park.

This hotel was fantastic. The history behind the building is also quite interesting. Friendly desk staff and concierge staffed and the restaurant in the middle had farm to fork quality food. Overall. This was lovely.

The Nines is a visually stimulating and casually elegant experience. Every member of the staff goes out of their way to make your stay comfortable. The atrium is beautiful and the food and drinks are excellent. The Nines is nestled in the shopping district; we were right across the street from Pioneer Square and great shopping within walking distance like Nordstrom and other boutique designer shops. Portland has some beautiful hotels throughout, but you would be missing out if you didn't include The Nines on a trip to Portland. We enjoyed it immensely. Read less

Considering the price, this hotel was not what I thought it would be. The tv remote didn’t work, we couldn’t use the mini fridge, no pool. Seemed like a lower end hotel with cheap wallpaper to make it look classy.

We came to Portland for 2 days and have been BLOWN away by the service and courtesy provided at this hotel. Not only from the moment you pull up to the door and the Valet greets you, and then at the front desk but all the way to the phone operator. On top of that, Judi in the club lounge on floor 12 was the most friendly and courteous host I’ve ever met at a Marriott property. She is quite literally the reason I would recommend anyone come back to this hotel and the reason I would return as well. Read less
