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 location is full of homeless people outside the doors, some of who aggressively ask for money and harass guests. The neighborhood is boarded up from riots. There is no real room service.

The location is full of homeless people outside the doors, some of who aggressively ask for money and harass guests. The neighborhood is boarded up from riots. There is no real room service. The restaurants inside are available by reservation only. The front desk doesn't answer the phone and are snotty. Rooms are nice, but bathrooms are dated. One and a half stars at best. Hated this place so much, that after pre-paying, I decided to stay elsewhere and lose my money. Truly a terrible experience. Stay away at all costs! Read less

I booked their deluxe suite for $600 for ONE NIGHT, no parking included, no food or water included. I was taking my girl out for her birthday to get out of the house and away from the baby while parents babysat. I never once booked a hotel without having a tub in the description because I know this is her one chance to get in a big tub and relax.… Read more
I booked their deluxe suite for $600 for ONE NIGHT, no parking included, no food or water included. I was taking my girl out for her birthday to get out of the house and away from the baby while parents babysat. I never once booked a hotel without having a tub in the description because I know this is her one chance to get in a big tub and relax. This hotel described in detail that my room would include a tub/shower combo, it didn’t, was only a standing shower and a second half bath ???. I called front desk and they gave me the run around saying they’re all booked but would be happy to downgrade my room with no refund, come to find out I paid for a deluxe suite and they put me in a normal suite because they’re “overbooked” or “sold out” . This is the worst customer service I have ever received , do yourself a favor and take a hard pass on this one and go to the RED LION where they actually give you what you pay for and meet your expectations . I’m disputing this entire stay , never coming here again and I’m glad the place is boarded up, hope it stays this way cause it’s a dump inside just like it looks on the outside. Employees are anything but luxury , this is less luxury than a best western, and customer service worse than a red roof inn . Take your $500 and go to California or the coast or even leave the country , this place is a joke . Read less

Breakfast sandwich and omelet with spinach and mushrooms was excellent. Don't miss the top Departure restaurant. From the outdoor patio you can overlook Portland Downtown. Read less
