Hotels near airports are a different breed altogether. There seems to be some cookie cutter factory that they all come out of. So when choosing one you just have to make sure that it has all the essentials (free parking, free wifi, free airport shuttle, etc). Sure, you can pay less but with a Hilton Garden Inn you generally know what you are going to get: something a little better than the other cookie cutter ones all along the strip near the airport. This one is exactly that.
We were staying elsewhere in Portland when we decided we needed to upgrade so we booked a night here as our final night and we are glad we did. Hilton has been in this business so long they have really tweaked things. Even the graphics on the front sliding doors evoke an emotion as you enter. It all goes a long way when you are a tired traveler. Check-in could have been a little more personable but was extremely efficient.
The King room on the top floor was much appreciated and it came with all the necessary features. Bonus points for a small fridge in the room that actually was nice and cold, had a freezer section, and was quiet! The room was clean, the bed was comfy and a great sleep was had by all. The bathroom did the trick nicely but I always check the vent fan in the ceiling (it's sort of a pet peeve of mine). This one definitely needed cleaning! So if you are grossed out about that sort of thing, don't look up. Otherwise, the big towels, the shower head that actually swiveled, and the Neutrogena soaps and shampoos in those little hotel bottles were great!
We couldn't stay for the "made-to-order" breakfast which they charged extra for but we did have to pass through it as we exited the hotel. Yes, you heard correctly, the lobby doubles as an open restaurant. That's one way to do it but if I was designing the cookie cutter building, I would have had the open restaurant more over to the side. So you knew it was there but it didn't feel like you were disturbing other guests having their breakfast.
Overall, a nice, efficient stay.
