I've always come across so many Holiday Inn Express(es) scattered in North America (USA/Canada), but this is the first time i've actually stayed in one at Jantzen Beach, Portland.
Coming from LA/SEA with my sister and her family, where we visited our folks, she had previously booked us here for a two night stay, where our main purpose was to visit the Grotto, and do some tax free shopping later at Woodburn Outlets before we headed to their Vancouver home (I was a tourist from Manila).
The rooms were well kept and very clean (though the cleaning lady assigned to us was not very thorough at daily cleaning). A simple but filling and balanced breakfast came with the package. Staff at the reception were pleasant and accommodating.
This hotel, though situated a bit far from Portland's city proper, was strategically located, and was walking distance to a commercial center that had a Super Target (first time i came across a 2-story Target!), Toys R Us, Old Navy, Best Buy, Ross, and other commercial establishments that were most useful for transients/tourists who needed some spur-of-the-moment purchases.
And best of all, tax free! :)
It was a short, but satisfying stay at Holiday Inn Express Jantzen. Nothing fancy about this hotel, but cleanliness and affordability make it worth going back to in the future.
