The room was really dark no natural light had to have the lights on all the time. Basic rooms but clean. Breakfast was good but the location wasn’t good if you were wanting to explore Portland.

The breakfast was decent, standard fair. Hot water was plentiful the water pressure however was lacking. Staff was friendly.
The bed was so uncomfortable. Super hard lumpy bed soft nonexistent pillows. The room was really dusty and unclean whenever something like a curtain was moved. Very little water pressure in the shower.
Best full continental breakfast experience I've had at a hotel. Friendly and efficient staff. Would reccomend this property to others based on the restaurant like experience to start a full day of sightseeing.
The lights in the room kept flickering on and off on it's own?? Didn't feel the need to report it. Also, parking fee was a little steep or unnecessary. Should already be included in the room rate...
This was one of the worst places I have ever stayed in. For the money I thought it would be okay because it was convenient despite the pictures being not so good. It was worse than Motel 6 and twice as much. It was dingy and musty. I actually left early and despite not being able to stand the smell they still made me pay. I ended up getting another placee right on the river for $50 less a night :-) definitely don’t recommend staying here.
It didn't start until 7:30 which was too late for me. I was long gone by then.
My room was needing major updating and it was cold without enough blankets.
University Place Hotel and Conference Center is located in downtown Portland, Oregon, on the campus of Portland State University. Although it is owned and operated by Portland State University (PSU) the hotel is open to the public. An economical hotel and affordable conference center, the venue has 234 guest rooms, 2 junior suites, 1 executive suite, and 10 conference and event spaces. The hotel’s event spaces include two large ballrooms: one 1,800 square feet and one 4,000 square feet.
Hotel guests can easily move around the city or visit local parks, museums, the Portland Aerial Tram, and more using Portland’s MAX (Metropolitan Area Express) light rail transportation system. A train station stop is conveniently located right outside the front door of the hotel. In addition, the Downtown Street Car is less than 3 blocks from the hotel.
If the hotel’s seasonal outdoor pool is closed, the MAX will transport hotel guests to PSU’s top-notch recreation center where hotel guests can use the facilities for a low daily fee. After running, swimming, weight training, or even wall climbing, the MAX can take guests to one of Portland’s famous food cart areas, known as pods. With several locations throughout the city, hotel guests have an amazing selection of food from locally grown to international cuisine.
Guests who prefer to eat at the hotel have options for a hot complimentary breakfast buffet or dinner and dessert at the hotel’s dining room which features a full bar, over 10 craft beers, and local wines. A late night menu is also available.
Whether in Portland for business or pleasure, the University Place Hotel and Conference Center is a great place to stay or host your corporate events.
