Huge shout out to the staff here, for facilitating the Fed Exing of forgotten and essential medical equipment which we forgot. They were helpful beyond expectation. Hotel is always clean and there's easy parking. Rooms and breakfast are standard for this chain, okay, but staff raises it above the average.

Having never been to downtown Portland before, this well priced hotel is great for one who wants to walk or drive around portland. Close to many great restaurants and shops, the industrial district, and Nob Hill. The rooms are nice, but nothing fancy, but clean and quiet is all I am looking for. Would stay here again, checked out on... More

I was here on business, walking distance from the office, with no car. I'd stay here again if I were visiting the same company, but mainly because I want the loyalty points. The hotel is a fairly standard one for this chain. My king room was a reasonable size. No closet, just a small alcove. The bathroom had enough counter... More

Hello DebbiesOnTheRoad, We are so sorry to hear that you didn't get to enjoy the area. It often happens that guests arrive and need to get to work or sleep so fast that we don't have time to tell them about the great little secret that is Nob Hill. Within walking distance of our hotel are over 100 different restaurants... More

Our stay in this hotel was very nice. We stayed in a king room and had a crib brought in for our baby. The room was clean and pleasant. The crib needed some help. The cribs at Holiday Inn are tiny and metal. The mattresses in the cribs are hard and the one we had here had a broken zipper... More

Traveled to Portland for business and Partner decided to tag along. Since I was working, I wasn't out and about as much, but I can tell you that he ran amok in the city and this hotel was a great starting point. The room was pretty standard for Holiday Inn Expresses; nothing too special, but offered the comfort and cleanliness... More

Thank you for your review! There can never be too many restaurants... or can there? The last time I counted there were over 100 restaurants within one mile on 23rd Avenue and 23rd Place alone! Our staff has had no choice but to turn into foodies and attempt to try every single one of them. Our challenge is great, our... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, and found it both budget friendly and a convenient location. They offer free parking (not often found in Portland) and a free continental breakfast (that filled us up every morning). It's very close to the interstate, so on our days that we drove out to sight-see it was very easy to get going. It... More

Not only is this hotel clean, fresh and in a fabulous location but their staff is absolutely amazing. We were 'walked' from another hotel and we couldn't be happier. The staff found out that we were celebrating my mother's birthday with a girls trip to Portland and they upgraded her to a suite as a surprise. We didn't pass an... More

The good stuff: The room was comfortable and fairly roomy for a hotel room. We asked for a quiet room and got a quiet room (that doesn't always happen at other hotels I've been at). The free breakfast was pretty good. There was enough variety of cereals, breads, some eggs, coffee, juices, and even a machine that made pancakes. The... More

First I would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. Our hotel does not allow dogs but underground in the offices below the building our staff is hard at work with the assistance of a few furry friends. They do love visitors like you!
