    Perfection down to the last detail

    My husband and I were extremely happy with our wedding at the Nines. Everything went so perfectly and we receive many compliments from our guests for weeks afterwards. Charlotte (their wedding coordinator) is an excellent listener and she communicates with perfect professionalism. She really cared about things going perfectly. The rest of the staff as well were amazing and made our day so special down to the tiniest details.

    My husband and I stayed at the Nines on our wedding night, as well as the following night, before leaving for our honeymoon. This hotel is my absolute favorite in Portland! The accommodations and hotel are beautiful, the employees are wonderful, and the rooftop is amazing! There is a restaurant and bar on the rooftop that has a great view of Portland from multiple angles and it has a classy vibe. This hotel is pricier compared to others in Portland, but it is the best and you can find some great deals, which we were able to do on Priceline.com.
