We had a great vacation this past weekend in Portland and what made it a memorable time was our stay at the Holiday Inn Express. Let me just summarize this for you, so that it will be an easy decision when you next need to stay near the airport in Portland.
We checked in at the hotel on Friday evening with a "Welcome service with a Smile" from Joe at the reception. Professional check in with the least of hassles.
We had requested for a room with 2 Queen size beds and what did we get?
The room was large. Had 2 queen size beds. The bathroom was huge.
The room was very well furnished with a pleasant color scheme and ambience was certainly very comfortable. Clean carpets, clean ceiling, fresh clean sheets, fresh clean towels, clean bathroom. Lighting was good, wireless internet was available, complimentary coffee and tea in the room, micro-wave available and well stocked refrigerator. And all new as the hotel just completed an up-grading exercise.Also available in the room was the hair dryer and ironing board. Oh, and I checked out the wall unit air-conditioning system and that's also new.
So much for the room.
Breakfast was another great surprise. If this was the HIE standards then let me say this:
You have a mini fridge filled with choices of yogurt. You have hard boiled eggs, choices of cereals, a spread of cinnamon roles to breads and more breads, prepared hot bacon, scrambled eggs, oatmeal , pancakes, choices of juices, coffee n tea, jams, butter etc and hot chocolate, yes and fruit i.e. banana.
How can anyone eat so much and that is all complimentary!
And more importantly, we noticed that the housekeeping staff, the service staff and the reception manager were all so pleasant,polite and always have a ready smile. That will make anyone's day.
The check out was as hassle free as the check in. All done, ready in an envelope , slipped underneath your room door on the morning of your departure.
Finally, to go to your car parked securely in the hotel grounds, no additional fees to pay, you tell yourself, how can I not return to this same hotel again, when I am next in Portland.
You don't have to believe what I have written, just check in and check it out yourself.
Thank you Holiday Inn Express ! RonSIM-Vancouver BC
