Typical Aloft experience, so I'll comment on features of this particular location: Shuttle (shared with the Sheraton) can take you from the airport to the hotel, which is located about a mile or so from the airport. There's also the possibility of taking the light rail from the airport to the first stop, and the hotel is a short walk away. It's a good option for those more interested in downtown Portland hotels for when those hotels are full or have high rates. The light rail takes about a half hour or so (in actual travel time) to get to downtown Portland, and it runs frequently. Within a short walk from the hotel are chain restaurants, a Yo Cream (yum) frozen yogurt store, chain shopping and an Ikea. My partner and I enjoyed the Aloft experience and depending on pricing of downtown Portland hotels, we'd stay there again for the ease of transportation options and the proximity to Yo Cream.
