I stay at this Holiday Inn almost every time I come through Portland on business, which comes out to about 8 times a year. The staff are always friendly, the rooms are always cozy, and the neighborhood is perfectly nestled between calm and busy. Access to I-5 and route 30 are right outside the hotel. If you want to stay... More

This was a nice hotel and pretty standard for HIE hotels. For the money, I would have expected a little nicer hotel or bigger/better rooms, but I guess you pay for the location. The hotel is located right next to a mini mart that doesn't look like the nicest place, but the hotel does a good job camouflaging it. The... More

Clean and affordable. Quiet and close walking distance to trendy 23rd street of restaurants and shopping. Easy access to freeway and Washington Park and Oregon Zoo. Free continental breakfast. Free parking and nice service. I would stay here again.

For a brief overnight stay we could have chosen less expensive or a different location, but we saw the reviews on TripAdvisor and looked at what our connections had to say about staying here. We were sold! And we were very glad we took their word! It was very clean, very comfortable, very close to everything and all that we... More

I stayed here with a friend for a golf getaway June 12 & 13, 2015. The property is clean, staff is courteous and our stay included complimentary parking, wifi and breakfast. This property is priced at least $100 less than some hotels located right downtown. Easy access to downtown through streetcar, transit or cab - or even walking.

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
