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.

Nice hotel in a great location. A special thank you to JUDY, the concierge in the Club Level lounge. She made terrific recommendations for sites to see and places to avoid. And her restaurant recommendations were spot on.

This was the 3rd or 4th time I’ve stayed and worst one yet. My company does our Christmas party here and at 6 pm most of the rooms were not ready.

This was the 3rd or 4th time I’ve stayed and worst one yet. My company does our Christmas party here and at 6 pm most of the rooms were not ready. Headed to the 8th floor bar to have a drink and the bar tender couldn’t have been more put out to make a drink or answer a question. Multiple coworkers experienced the same. The next night we head up to their swanky 15th floor bar where I experienced the most pretensions condescending server in my life. Considering we booked nearly 40 rooms for 3 night I feel the service could not have been worse and I hope we have a new venue next year. Paying that kind of money for “the nines” and experiencing better service at a super 8, the nines hotel has a LONG way to go in customer service training for their staff. Stay elsewhere. Read less

Can’t say enough about the amazing weekend we had in Portland! Great restaurants, wineries, etc! The weekend was even better with service from Judi in the club lounge! I’d recommend this hotel to anyone! Go Judi!
