We usually stay near the Pearl district so we were pleasantly surprised to find excellent food and bars within 5 minutes walking distance. The room was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. This hotel was great value. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean, easy to get to (as far as Portland goes), very pleasant front desk and housekeeping staff. Very clean. Nice to have an underground parking option, given the often rainy conditions. Great breakfast spread.... Had to laugh -- we were told our room had a "great view." For me, yes--Dutch Bros. is right across the street. Otherwise? Not so much.

We only stayed here one night, but it was very close to everything we wanted to do. It The placement off the highway was a perfect fit, but a little confusing how to get to it. Left early in the morning to go to Voodoo Doughnut a short car ride away. We stayed on the 3rd floor and looked right... More

Pretty basic Holiday Inn Express, no manager's happy hour in the evening, nothing else extra that you find in some HIE's. Booked a large room with a Balcony, when I arrived it had been given to someone else with no explanation as to why, but was given a "suite" (it had a sofa) and a lower rate. Our room was... More

Great pool and spa area. Breakfast was good and well stocked. We had to stay late due to an event and they allowed us to stay till 1:00 to... More

I booked 2 rooms for 3 nights at this hotel approximately 1 week ago. When completing the online reservation I was informed that "a deposit for the entire stay is due at time of booking"; I was also told that " cancelling your reservation or failing to arrive will result in the forfeiture of your deposit. Taxes may apply." I... More

Great location for walking around Nob Hill. The breakfast was good for a HIE, but nothing really amazing. The staff was good, but didn't seem to really know the area -- we asked two different front desk people about restaurants and using public transportation and neither really knew the answer. It's a safe hotel, the rooms were very clean, and... More
