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

Good value for a downtown Portland hotel. Awesome strip of restaurants and shopping within walking distance including salt and straw ice cream. Could drive or trolley to the city that is about 10 minutes away.

The location is the only good thing about this place. I thought we had a water mattress because when I sat on the bed it drastically changed shape. Parking is not free. The pool looked like a horses watering hole. Not appealing. The shower was ok. Good pressure. I felt somewhat uneasy staying in this place. It reminded me of... More

I stayed here on a Friday night in January with my daughter, who is 10. We arrived around 9:00pm, and the lobby was empty. Alexandra greeted us right away, and check-in was a breeze. There was tons of (FREE) parking right outside the front door, too! The area is pretty industrial, and there is a fairly run-down convenience store just... More

The rooms were gorgeous, a nice section of products in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable with several types of pillows to choose from and the front desk provided a razor and shaving cream that had been forgotten. If you want to sleep in I'd request a room away from the construction project going on, but for me that... More

We stayed at this property last weekend. The front desk attendant was very personable and upgraded our room. The bed was comfortable, as were the pillows - which are labeled firm and soft. The wifi seemed faster than almost any hotel I have ever stayed in. Water pressure in the shower was a bit low, but I assume that helps... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel during Thanksgiving week. Although not in Downtown Portland, it is in the Alphabet district which is a great location. Walking down 23rd street there's a ton of cute shops and great restaurants and bars, as well as a convenience store. Also, the hotel is just a few block away from the streetcar... More
