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.

The room was larger than I expected, I had booked an atrium view and got an exterior view. The decor is stylish and everything seemed in good condition. There was a small area with a desk. The bathroom was large. They provided bottles of water and evening turndown service. One of the most positive things is that they don't charge a resort fee, which seems to becoming an industry standard. my main complaint is that at times we had to wait several rotations to get on the elevator there were so many people using them, and most of them weren't going to guest rooms because you had to use a key to go to those floors. You also have to be very careful about touching anything on the minibar or they will charge you. Read less

This beautiful hotel has just about everything one could want n a luxury, downtown hotel, I found the staff to be most courteous and considerate at all times, from the greeting at the entrance, the check-in, meals and visiting the rooftop bar. Super well appointed, high quality rooms and views of Portland. The aforementioned restaurants and bars were also superb. One can enjoy walking all over Portland's magnificent downtown quite easily from here. For any reason or need one could think of - this is the nicest place to stay. Read less

Think of it as a wanna-be-boutique-hotel that was hijacked by the Marriott brand. I shared a room with a friend on the concierge level (2 queen beds). The room was large with all the typical amenities of a standard hotel room, including complimentary water. The bathroom and shower are integrated so only one person can use it at a time.

Think of it as a wanna-be-boutique-hotel that was hijacked by the Marriott brand. I shared a room with a friend on the concierge level (2 queen beds). The room was large with all the typical amenities of a standard hotel room, including complimentary water. The bathroom and shower are integrated so only one person can use it at a time. Although it is a newly renovated hotel, as of 2019, the toilet seat is very small (less than standard). No coffee maker or an espresso maker as one would expect in a nigh-end room. The reception is strangely located on the 8th floor, but the 8th floor button in the elevator is not mark as Lobby or Reception; instead it is "8", while the street level entrance is marked as "L". The concierge lounge was less than delightful. At 9:15 AM they were already out of breads... how can a hotel run-out of bread? Read less

Close to museums, the Powell Book Store, the Portland Saturday Market. Rooms very very nice and service was fantastic from the check in through the departure.

He is not only extremely pleasant to speak with, but he also goes above and beyond to make sure that I am taken care of. His level of client care is of the highest quality and he genuinely cares about making sure every box is checked. Employees like Paul are one of the reasons I look forward to my stay. Read less
