  • The streetcar and light rail both stop within blocks of the hotel
  • Continental breakfast, a nightly local wine reception and Wi-Fi are all complimentary


Ranked in the top 20 of Portland's 130+ hotels on TripAdvisor, the Mark Spencer Hotel is a family and locally run boutique hotel offering guests an intimate and friendly stay in the city. The top-notch service earns rave reviews on TripAdvisor, as does the prime location in the up-and-coming West End just along the border of the Pearl District.

It's a great spot for those who want to get a local’s perspective of the city, within walking distance of neighborhood favorites like the world-famous Powell’s Books, the Crystal Ballroom, Voodoo Doughnut and the top-rated Portland City Grill -- Portland's highest restaurant with the best view in downtown. The Portland Streetcar stops two blocks away, as does the MAX light rail which conveniently connects to downtown and the airport.

As the oldest operating boutique hotel in the city, the Mark Spencer has been a favorite among artists for over a century with a guest registry that includes the likes of Louis Armstrong, Spike Jones and Sammy Davis Jr. This commitment to the arts continues today -- each guest room and hotel floor displays work by local artists, reflecting the city’s rich culture and thriving art scene. All rooms are cozy and inviting, and after a multi-million dollar renovation, blend modern décor with vintage charm in details like exposed brick and wooden beams. Bathrooms are finished with marble floors, Italian-tiled showers and fog free mirrors and some upgraded rooms come with full kitchens.

A thoughtful list of complimentary extras includes Wi-Fi, an expanded continental breakfast, fresh baked afternoon cookies, an evening wine tasting hour and a 24-hour self-serve espresso machine. Pets are welcome for an additional fee and an on-site laundry facility is available for those on longer stays.
