It was the week of Thanksgiving, and my boyfriend and I were trying to get out of town to Bend, Oregon. We had quite a drive ahead of us from Seattle, WA. We took off after work and decided to stop in the Gresham area, next to Portland, for a room for the night. I had researched prices for hotels on the Internet before we left and chose to try the Four Points by Sheraton. I had never stayed at one of these hotels, and I wasn't quite sure what I was getting myself into. The website that I looked at had some information on the hotel and some pictures, but sometimes that can be deceiving. When we arrived, the lobby had a fireplace that was lit, and the reservations desk was extremely polite and helpful.
To my surprise, the bed was the same as the picture on the website, which was really nicely done. The comforters were a beige color and very nicely done, with oversized pillow shams on the bed. The bed was fairly comfortable but a little too firm for my likings. The shower was nice (nothing spectacular), and it had a rounded shower rod, which gave the shower extra room. The hotel gave us a free bottle of water, coffee, and a bag of peanut butter crackers in our room, which was nice considering I don't find too many free things at hotels anymore.
The next morning, we went down to the continental breakfast, if you can call it that. This was the most disappointing part of this hotel besides the bed comfort. This breakfast included toast, bagels, some Twinkies things, and juice/coffee/teas. The room had three small tables. I honestly did have enough to eat, but I had to work hard at it. My recommendation is go out to breakfast if you want waffles, cereal, or any sort of meat in the mornings. Hopefully this hotel will improve the breakfast and the bed comfort, but as far as a cheap place to stay while you’re passing through, it's not a bad choice.
