A nice hotel right in the center of downtown Portland. The location is great and lots of restaurants, bars, food carts, and stores are within walking distance.

I grew up in Portland, so it was a bit weird to me when they turned part of one of our oldest department stores into a hotel, but it's actually really cool! The suites here are gorgeous and have amazing views of downtown Portland's Pioneer Square and beautiful linens. I've heard they aren't that soundproof, though, but haven't spent the night in one so I can't say. What I can say is that the rooftop restaurant here is amazing and serves up lots of yummy dim sum. And did I mention they have an entire vegan menu and another gluten free one? I could eat here every day.

the Nines is a glam, chic, sexy, cool (and all other synonyms) type of hotel. I scored an excellent deal on the Nines' website during a sold out weekend for stay one night get the second for 50% off in a city view deluxe corner room, which came out to about $400 total. Prior to arriving, their concierge sent me a welcome email and asked if I had any special requests, which I thought was a nice touch. This is great if you're celebrating a special occasion, because they do send you a nice congratulatory treat.
The room was stunning, with soothing hues of Tiffany blue, taupe and cream. And the view - it was amazing! Since it was a corner room, there was a panoramic view of the Courthouse and downtown. Try not to get a room that faces inside - your view will be of the restaurant below. The bathroom was so big you could do cartwheels inside. Luxurious bath products from Gilchrist & Soamies were a big plus. And while the bedding was very comfortable, the bed was not a heavenly bed (the Nines is a Starwood property), so that was probably the only gripe I had.
Departure, their penthouse Asian Fusion restaurant and open air lounge, is super chic and has amazing happy hour specials. And you'll find a bunch of people dressed to the Nines there late night. Urban Farmer, the hotel's steakhouse is great for dessert and drinks - and I hear the food is superb too.
Since the hotel is located at the top of the Historic Meier & Frank Building which also houses Macy's (unfortunately a pretty sad one), it's centrally located downtown. While the MAX light rail is located right outside (free rides within a certain boundary), it was very easy to walk to most destinations. It's only a short taxi ride to the Pearl District or Nob Hill (which is where the cool boutiques are!).
Easy access to shopping - hello tax free retail! Directly across the street is Pioneer Place mall, and to the left is the Nordstrom flagship store.

A really stylish hotel with a cool contemporary decor and great service.
From check in to check out everything worked flawlessly here. Staff is really friendly and helpful.
Rooms are elegant and cozy. The bed is super comfortable and the bathroom is also great, roomy and with great water pressure.
The lobby is on the 8th floor and it has some nice artworks and an atrium with chairs and sofas for you to relax and enjoy the nice environment.
The location of the hotel is also great. Walk two blocks up to Alder Street between 9th and 11th and you will find a really big food truck pod, which is the best way to explore Portland's famous street food scene.

I enjoyed my stay at The Nines. The hotel features a lounge/restaurant on the top floor called Departure and a Steakhouse/casual bar on the 5th floor. The room itself was cozy and the decor elevated the relaxing atmosphere.
Unfortunately, the hotel is situated in an hourly primarily known for shopping. I was hoping there would be more food in the area, but you'd have to take a bus/tram to really explore foodie spots. The public transportation is good. Within walking distance is home to some of the most delicious food trucks - a plus if you enjoy exploring on foot.

The Nines is a really cool Retro Glam Hotel located above Macy's within the historic Meier & Frank Building. Our room was located on the 9th Floor and was on the inside of the Hotel facing the Urban Farmer Atrium. Maybe a room looking outside would have been better, but the trifecta of a well sound-proofed room, light-blocking curtains, and a super comfy bed, really had us sleeping through the night (and most of the morning) in happy luxury.
Gayle and I also enjoyed the extra touches here at The Nines. That included our elegantly appointed room, a welcoming and artistic chic Lobby and Atrium area, a roomy shower with plenty of hot water and pressure, soft bath robes, turn down service, a separate little office area off the main bedroom, a very helpful and knowledgeable Concierge Desk, and free loaner umbrellas on street level for those rainy Portland days.
The Nines is also conveniently located across the street from Pioneer Square, which gave us a ring side view point of various activities, including a Sunday Morning Alzheimer's walk, the Monday Farmer's Market, and a really great street band playing in front of Nordstrom on Saturday Evening. The TriMet Red Line (from PDX) also stops right here. And when you combine these public transit options and the easy walkability of the Rose City, why would anyone need a car or a cab, unless it were a special circumstance?Recommended for

Fantastic chic, modern place to grab drinks, even if you are not staying at the hotel you feel like a VIP instantly. After the elevator ride up you arrive in a almost spaceship feeling like bar, drapped with white walls and beautiful architexture. The drinks are delicious and the people are typically young and cool pdx types. Fun spot outdoors too if you need to grab some air and a great view of the city.
Perfect for drinks, mingling, meeting new people.
