Hotwire Hotel: 4.5* Portland (Downtown Portland) Dossier

By points,

Recommended Posts

Hotwire often does a bait & switch - after you click on the listing, and it comes back with the full page booking - and says "the last person got____" don't believe them.  Just as often as not, you don't get that hotel.  in this case it said last person got Kimpton Monaco, but the bed choice didn't match - which should have been a clue.  Also - the Tripadvisor rating doesn't match as they must be referring to the previous Westin - which has been refurbished and is now the Dossier.  Probably as good of a deal as the Kimpton, but not what I expected despite a lot of research.


Terrible to see "resort fees" - in this case $20/night - come to even places like Portland.  Just ridiculous!  You have to watch how much the total is with all the fees to compare booking direct.  In this case, still a better rate via Hotwire, but enough to make it a great deal.
