Hotel Rose review
While “Keep Portland Weird” are buzz words for Portlanders, we don’t necessarily want to stay in a weird hotel. We want easy access to dining, shopping and outdoor recreation in the Rose city. This Hotel Rose review should give you a preview of what to expect of this downtown Portland hotel. Here’s what you need to know about a stay at Hotel Rose.
Downtown Portland Hotel Rose
A former office building, Hotel Rose is 5 stories high and offers 142 rooms with two suites. The staff is very welcoming and offers epicurean recommendations nearby or a foodie walking tour. We stayed in room #537, a metro king. The room was bright and airy and offered plenty of electrical outlets. In fact, both night stands on either side of the bed, as well as the desk, featured plugins.
I appreciated that the windows in the room opened to let in fresh air, as I’m not a fan of air conditioning.
The bathroom had one sink and a walk in shower with rainhead fixtures. Tommy Bahama bath amenities were fixed to the shower interior; a nod to the hotel’s eco-friendly efforts. The entry closet contained two plush robes, a hair dryer, safe and umbrella. Fortunately for us, the weather was splendid on our visit to Portland. Rather than opt for the umbrella, we headed downstairs to retrieve two bright yellow bicycles to ride along Tom McCall Park and the Willamette River.

Insider Tips: There are plenty of restaurants and breweries within walking distance of Hotel Rose. In addition to this, the Tri-Met trolley pick up is only a block over from the hotel. This was important to us as we had disembarked from an UnCruise Rivers of Adventure tour. The company used this hotel for guests of the ship flying out of Portland. We took “the Max” red line to Portland International Airport and it was cheap and easy.
