“My recommendation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

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

This is a consistently great hotel! It keeps updated, has a nice staff and is quiet with wifi that actually is faster than most hotels. I have stayed here for 10 years and it has never waivered!

Wednesday nights, the hotel has a nice manager's get together. There is no restaurant for dinner, but there is a mall close by with some decent places to grab food.

We were tooling around St. Helens area, and ended up in PDX at about 8pm saturday night. I GPS located a Holiday Inn, and there we were, at the HI Express at the PDX Airport. I had no reservation, but was given top notch service, and a room at the lowest possible price. The rooms were spotlessly clean. I had a king suite with jaccuzzi tub, and all was right. It worked perfectly after about 16 hours in the car. Bedding was wonderful as usual, and there is nothing at all wrong with this staff. They were great. For my money, and having stayed at a few other hotels in the area, this HI Express is perfect both in price, and standards. Very very good

This would have been a fine Holiday Inn Express except it smelled awful. I am not even sure what the smell was. Its definitely an older hotels so probably mold. It was in the hallways and in the room. Ancient plastic wallpaper with the ugly trim around the top of the walls. Maybe that was off gassing still?? The good news is that this is one of the few hotels where the windows actually open!! and have screens! They were super nice with the shuttle to the airport for our daughter and the beds and room were fine, internet worked, there was plenty of hot water, staff was fine. The hot tub in the exercise room was in a god awful, small, ugly room and the jets didn't work. The location is good, but I will stay at one of the other hotels next time.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor

I stay in Holiday Inn Express properties whenever I can. This one is your standard excellent hotel with the additional treat of a cold breakfast at anytime of the day or night. I had a very early flight so I needed to leave for the airport at 5 am. I was able to have cereal with a banana, yogurt, muffin or bagel and coffee, tea or milk before I caught the van for the airport. And they had a USA Today for me to read while I was eating. I thought that was impressive!
