    Charlotte's the best! Our wedding came together flawlessly with her support. The rest of the staff at The Nines was absolutely great as well. We're forever thankful.

    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.
