The Portland White House is the best stay in PDX

The Portland Whitehouse team is the best. We've stayed in a number of places in Portland, and it is by the far the best and most consistent. Anyone looking a great room, good location, easy location, top breakfast, and just an all around no worries experience, this needs to be your place.
