The Nines hotel located in downtown Portland offers a luxurious refined experience in the heart of downtown Portland. On a recent visit to Portland I was upgraded to what they called a Vice Presidential Suite. I had already booked a one bedroom suite, but this room was much nicer and larger than the one bedroom suite. The upgrade was in part to my Platinum status. The Nines Hotel is part of SPG’s Luxury Collection.
The Nines Club Executive Suite
Upon check in, we received the Meier and Frank Suite, room 1241. The room is on the executive floor and the same floor as the lounge.
This room is truly huge! It’s over 1200 square feet! Seriously, it is bigger than my condo! You enter the room into a grand foyer with a over-sized powder room to the left.
Once in the room there is a huge living and dinning room with a wet bar! The room is set up for a party! There’s even Boise speaker surround sound! Everything about the Nines suite is a bit gody!
My visit to the Portland Nines was on a cloudy day, but if it wasn’t cloudy, there is a great view of the mountains from the room. Otherwise the cityscape is nice.
Off of the main room is a TV room and office. The couch turns into a bed for visitors or more guests.
The highlight to the suite is really the King size bedroom and marble bathroom. It also helps the wallpaper is toned down a bit in the bedroom.
The pictures do not do the bathroom justice, It’s honestly the largest hotel bathroom I’ve ever been in!
Overall the room is extremely large and eccentric. It’s probably more than what most people need for a night in Portland. Yet, the room can work great for a family or those looking to live it up for a weekend! I felt like I was in an upper east side apartment, not in downtown Portland!
The Nines Executive Lounge
The Nines Executive lounge offers breakfast every day and a free beer, wine and hors d’oeuvre each evening. The lounge is on the 12th floor, but has no views as it faces the inside courtyard. The lounge is a very small “L” shape and gets very crowded.
The lounge is a great place to grab a quick snack or a free drink, but don’t spend too much time here. It’s to crowded for breakfast and appetizers to really enjoy the space.
The Nines Amenities
The Portland Nines is a luxury hotel in downtown Portland and does not offer a pool or spa. Or at least not that I noticed. The hotel does have a beautiful gym though and a great business center.
Next to the gym is the business center.
In all honesty I am not a huge fan of luxury hotels. Overall, they feel stuffy. Yet, the Portland Nines offers a high-end experience walking distance to the best Portland has to offer: shopping, bars, strip clubs, and breweries!
If you’re going to Portland and want a high end experience, check out The Nines!
