Black-and-white celebrity photos from Pulitzer Prize–winner and native Oregonian David Hume Kennerly, comfy leather chairs, and stylish low-slung furniture adorn the rooms of this nine-story, 1909 European-style boutique hotel in the heart of downtown. The hotel's goal of "delivering calm" is accomplished in part through seven choices in pillows, stored customer profiles (so you automatically receive that same pillow next time), iPod docks, in-room Steven Smith Tea (it's
local, and excellent), soft robes, and Lather bath products. Available pet amenities include a special bed, set of dishes, treats, bottled water, and even books on pet psychology and dog massage. Off the lobby you'll find one of the hottest restaurants in town, Imperial, plus the more casual but also excellent Portland Penny Diner.

Great location, very very helpful staff, smallish room , nicely decorated, great sheets, loved the black and white photos and hip, yet friendly, vibe.
