The Hilton Hotel on 6th Avenue was really nice inside. There is a beautiful staircase as you enter the lobby. Since it was December, the lobby was nicely decorated for Christmas. The staff were all friendly and helpful. When I needed to print out a Google map, they gave me the code so I could use their business center computer and color printer. I also had DSL in my room, which was $9.95 a day. It was a wired connection, rather than the normal WiFi access. I liked that better, because lately the WiFi access I've had at some hotels has been slow and unreliable. When I'm trying to do some work, it is incredibly frustrating to keep losing your wireless connection.
My room was nicely decorated, with a desk and a flat screen TV. That was a nice touch. I was able to watch a show while working on various projects. So many hotels put the desk in a place that prevents you from seeing the TV at all. When I asked the staff where I could go for a choice of foods for dinner, they pointed me in the direction of a food court about a block away. It was fine and I was able to get a nice meal for a small amount of money. This was a one night stay, so I had to leave very early in the morning. Since business will bring me back to Portland again, I will plan to stay at the Hilton in downtown again. I had a nice relaxing stay and a good night's sleep!
