The Nines Portland

Portland, Oregon

Virgin rating

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.

They both went above and beyond to ensure our girls' weekend was a celebration to remember. I want to thank them both for making our stay extra special! Read less

Pros: Staff were very friendly and super quick, especially the valet service. Cons: Hotel was reasonably clean, our first impression on entering the room; hmm... sort of like a La Quinta (which are great hotels) but did not strike us as 5-star.

Pros: Staff were very friendly and super quick, especially the valet service. Cons: Hotel was reasonably clean, our first impression on entering the room; hmm... sort of like a La Quinta (which are great hotels) but did not strike us as 5-star. The overpriced stocked refrigerator was behind a tired wooden cabinet and one of the hinges on this cabinet door was loose so the door hung a bit and did not close fully. The bathroom had an oversize door, maybe to project a grandness, but the bathroom was cramped and going to the restroom at night one would knock oneself on the edge of the open door because it protruded into the somewhat small bathroom. The shower stall drained slowly. The special cosmetic magnifying lighted mirror did not light up. The room had a kitschy plastic looking baubles chandelier. Trying to charge some devices and found that not all the outlets/ports seemed to work - just for a phone and fire tablet. Was meant to be a treat fro my son finishing med school and my wife; sadly very disappointing. Definitely not 5-star, definitely not luxury. Read less

I appreciate your customer service Tim with valet services. My car was brought to me promptly. The nines is a fantastic hotel. It’s the only place I prefer to stay in Portland. I will definitely recommend friends to stay here.

The best thing about the hotel is the staff. Marissa went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We had an issue with some items being thrown away by housekeeping and Tyler helped recover them. Breakfast was reasonably priced and good. Our room was small but super comfortable bed and great view.
