Enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Portland. While at first blush, it didn't 't look like it would be in a good location (we knew nothing of Portland), it was absolutely in a good location. A block or two to the bus stop (we took public transportation) and in an excellent location for all the restaurants on 23rd... More

I have had good expreiences at all the Holiday Express hotels I have stayed at and this was no different. By HI Express standards it was average, a little big above most of the compatables. Nothing stands out as exceptionally good or bad. Staff was friendly, helpful, and efficient. Room was clean and comfortable. Overall, the stay was enjoyable and... More

We were a little concerned after some of the reviews, but we experienced great service. The beds were very comfortable and there were two pillows per person, one firm and one soft. Our sink stopper would not come up but other than that, a great stay. Breakfast was not the greatest either.

I was surprised by some comments on the area being "sketchy". The location was great; right off the highway (but our room was quiet). ust a block away from great local restaurants on 23rd, and the much loved ice cream joint called Salt and Straw. The trolley stop was close by and for a meagre $1 fare, we enjoyed our... More

We stayed here with our adult children and was intially worried about the immediated area when I was looking at it on google maps. Instead it turned out to be fantastic! Easy freeway access and if you walk up one block on NW 23rd Street - you discover a trendy, friendly neighborhood with great restaurants and lots of small trendy... More

Most holiday Inn express are perfectly fine for a place to launch from. .this one was no different. We're platinum members and they were busy so we didn't get our preferred top floor so we could hear a few noises above us. The a/c initially had a musty smell but worked it's way out. Only complaint is rude guests. I... More

Dear kewpie1, Thank you for taking time to write your review about our hotel and being an IHG Rewards Club Platinum Elite member. We are disappointed that the noise disturbance from our other guests, smell from the air conditioning unit and service from some of our staff prevented you from fully enjoying your stay. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience... More

I was in town on business and working downtown, but didn't want to deal with looking and paying for parking. This place was a good choice. It is no Ritz Carlton, but is easy to get to and was good for a quick trip. As mentioned, plenty of free parking along with free breakfast before heading off to my meetings.... More

This is a great location to tour Portland as the trolley is only about a 5-minute walk and there are numerous restaurants within walking distance. The free parking is an added bonus. The hotel lobby and the rooms are clean and well maintained and the staff is extremely friendly. The free breakfast offers tasty food that wasn’t overcooked or over... More

We came here to see if we would want to relocate to the city. The location was perfect because it offered quick access to the major roads leading in and out of the city. The room itself was very comfortable and clean. We missed our flight and they had no trouble holding our room until the next day and when... More

Not the greatest of areas but a nice, affordable place to stay in the city and fantastic having free parking. The rooms are standard Holiday Inn rooms – very comfortable with good amenities and the breakfast is pretty good. If you are looking to stay in Portland without having to pay $30 to park your car, then this really is... More
