    Amazing Venue!!

    Anna and her staff at the Press Hotel were above and beyond what I could have ever expected for my wedding venue. We visited many venues and none of them were quite working - and honestly places we visited sort of left us feeling like we were doing them a favor when we were meeting with them.

    We had stayed at the Press Hotel before and were always so impressed with the staff. What really put us over the top was once evening when we were trying to choose our venue, we decided to have dinner and stay at the Press. The sales manager, Anna Paschal knew we were coming in and arranged for some pretty awesome special treatment! It was that night that everything fell into place for us and we both were in love wit this venue.

    The funny thing is that we ended up staying at the Press a few weeks later and never told anyone there we had booked a wedding and the service was completely the same - impeccable! We were treated so well and everyone from valet to front desk and bar staff was so incredibly courteous.

    We continued to have this amazing service from the hotel and its staff through to our wedding day. Anna was so completely on top of everything and consistently checked in with me. She responded back to every question in a very timely way.

    The day of my wedding the penthouse was breathtaking. I wanted to see the reception room set up but I was super busy getting ready, so Anna sent me many pictures. They totally nailed the set up and everything about the service on my wedding was amazing. Our wait staff was so prompt and pleasant - many guests commented on this!!

    I am so thrilled to have had my wedding here. I would do it all over again if I could. We plan on going back for visits often because we love this place. I would highly recommend the Press Hotel to anyone looking to have a beautiful downtown Portland wedding.

    The Press Hotel is spectacular

    We had a New Year's Eve wedding at the Press Hotel. Every second of this event was perfect. The Press staff is absolutely wonderful and I cannot give enough stars to this venue. I only wish I could do it all over again! Thank you Press for making our wedding so very beautiful.
