The road-warrior caretakers at Comfort Suites Southwest drape guests in hospitality, letting them bathe at will in free coffee, high-speed WiFi, a heated indoor pool, and a hot tub. Family-suite guests can burn off the gratis continental breakfast with a bounce-duel on two queen beds or a more traditional workout in the exercise room. Laundry facilities assist with cleanup of juice spills, and copy machines are handy for duplicating word searches and favorite passages from the stroller-repair manual. Families can prepare for a trip to the zoo—or other nearby attractions such as the Oregon Museum of Science & Industry and the historic Pittock Mansion—by watching educational cable-TV programs or by comparing monkey faces with the friendly front-desk staff.
