    Cool retrofitted hotel rooms. Clean facilities. Friendly and helpful staff.

    Not the safest area.

    The rooftop at The Society Hotel was exceptional, on a clear day/night you can easily see all of downtown. After a walk of about 3 or 4 blocks, you were in a great part of town with plenty of fun downtown activities to do.

    The room was very, very small, it was large enough for one queen-sized bed tucked in the corner and a walkway around it big enough for one person. Also, the area the hotel was in was very bad many homeless people occupied the streets outside the hotel.

    Nicely designed, very cool vibe, very comfortable even if small rooms. Excellent price point for what is an increasingly expensive city. Being close to the Amtrac train station is also a plus.

    Surrounded by homeless people is never a very comfortable situation. Portland needs to solve this nasty problem. However the positives out way the negatives and I will be happy to stay here again.
