Decided to hit the trailblazer game last minute on the evening of November 26th. Spoke with Elise over the telephone and headed south to Portland with two kids in tow. Arrived and was hungry so asked for directions to the closest restaurants and was given a paper with dozens of choices, all within walking distance. Since it was raining, was... More

The location is very convenient, being right at the bottom of the highway exit ramp and they have good onsite parking. The hotel seems to have been recently renovated, check in was without issue, and my room was large and clean. Breakfast was included, and was a hot buffet. Some days the eggs were premade cheese omelets, which I liked... More

This is just like all the Holiday Inn Express hotels. Newish and clean. Walk to pubs two blocks away. It is an odd area of town in northwest but easy parking. We used our car to get to all the other sites and neighborhoods. We did walk to a nearby pub.

We went to this hotel recently for a weekend. It is the best. The large breakfast selection including all the hot food (eggs, sausage, bacon, pancakes, cinnamon rolls) is fabulous.

This was our first visit to this HIE and we were not disappointed. From check in to check out, it was a good experience. The hotel is well maintained. I just read that one reviewer has stayed at this HIE for 10 years. That surprised me because it looks almost new. The hotel and our room was spotlessly clean. The... More

I was telling my friends that I really lucked out by finding this hotel. It's located in a very convenient location close to downtown, and in a vibrant area. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby.

Folks, We've been staying at this particular HEI for over 10 years now and everything remains well managed from year to year. Yes, the elevator seems to be the slowest in the country, but once you get your luggage upstairs one seems motivated to get some exercise and take the stairs rather than wait for the lift.

We stayed 2 night at this hotel. It's in perfect location close to everything - attractions, highways, great food on 23rd NW street. It provides free parking which could be costly in Portland. Otherwise - very overpriced hotel even for the area of Portland.
