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.

We stayed two nights at The Nines at the end of a three week vacation. We are Marriott Titanium Elite and are particular w our hotel choices. The Nines did not disappoint. Beautiful, Art Deco and modern decorations and furnishings. Very clean w ample amenities in room. We were upgraded to a larger room at check-in. Desk staff (Megan) was so friendly and helpful. Bellman was informative and valet was reasonably quick. We had dinner in the bar area at Urban Farmer. The staff was amazing and the food was wonderful. Great wine list. Very good filet. The canned cornbread was a pleasant surprise. The only negative would be the noise of the public transportation that was right outside our window. Sounded a bit like rolling thunder on the tracks. We will definitely be return guests. Read less

My husband stayed here the night of October 12th to celebrate our Anniversary. We usually stay at the Monaco but decided to switch it up. I had stayed here several years ago and had a bit of an off experience then (I Found old gum stuck to my nightstand, the staff at the nines were super apologetic and tried to make it right).

My husband stayed here the night of October 12th to celebrate our Anniversary. We usually stay at the Monaco but decided to switch it up. I had stayed here several years ago and had a bit of an off experience then (I Found old gum stuck to my nightstand, the staff at the nines were super apologetic and tried to make it right). Shortly after that trip the managers executive assistant reached out to me to let me know the Nines wanted to make it right and if I was ever to stay with them to reach out to her personally and she would handle our accommodations and see that we were upgraded and taken care of. Well, after booking our room this time I reached out to her and she no longer works at the nines. I instead spoke with someone at the concierge. I forwarded him my correspondence with her hoping we would still be taken care of. Fast forward to check in. The Nines has a great location right downtown. The woman at the front desk was very nice and congratulated us on our anniversary. We had booked a king atrium view room and that is what we were given (no upgrade like I had been promised). We got to the room and I was surprised how small it was. The last time I stayed here we were upgraded to a queen corner suite which was a good size and lovely. This room was dark small and tired. The bathroom was so dark I could barely do my makeup. I thought the bathrooms had lighted magnifying mirrors but ours didn’t. And while the bathroom was dark it wasn’t dark enough to hide how dirty and worn it was. There was dust everywhere, mold in the shower and suspicious brown substance on the wall in the bathroom. After my past experience I expected more attention to do detail, things to “The Nines” if you will. I would say this is more like a 3.5 star hotel. The price and the quality just do not ad up.
