Hotel staff was awesome and very helpful with places to eat and since I was there during Christmas the local street to go for some christmas lights that was close by. They were changing wallpaper on the floor I was on and it was very messy but the room was quiet and clean. Breakfast is complimentary and something for everyone....

Arrived and had to wait on a room. The desk agent was very helpful and found one soon after.After a long trip, I was ready just to relax. The lobby, breakfast area, everything looked very professional and like the typical Holiday Inn Express. Not a 5 star hotel, but would expect at least a 3 star. Once I had my...

This is a very nice hotel our stay was pleasant. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable, the pillows could be a little softer but overall we all slept well. The shower had good water pressure. Nice LG HD tv's with several channels (no Disney Channel). Breakfast was nice and extended for about a 1/2 hour. Staff...

This HIX is meets the brand's standard of a newish building, good but bland rooms, free breakfast, lots of parking, basic amenities, all for a reasonable mid-range price. It is this hotel's location that makes it great value. It is on a busy road, yes, just off the 405, but it also right at the end of NW 23rd street,...

Hello There NW_Raven! First of all, thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review of our hotel. We appreciate it greatly. The renovations are finally done.

Great room rate which includes breakfast and parking. We didn't eat breakfast here though as there are some great places to go within walking distance. We went to besaw's which was delicious! They were doing renovations when we were there so there was quite a bit of dust around but the inside of the room was clean. Great access to...

Hi there AHDeeVan, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. Good News! The wallpaper renovations are done! Besaw's is a long time favorite of our guests and staff. With so much great food in the area you could stay for two weeks and not have eaten at all the great breakfast places around here!...

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights not too long ago. The staff was very nice throughout--from check-in to cleaning to breakfast room. The location is great. it is right off a Portland highway bridge and very convenient to downtown (maybe 10 minute drive). There is plenty of free parking, which is not clear from the HI website.

No complaints at all - and the service has exceeded expectations. The front desk went out of their way to help us add a night (even though it was via Hotwire) and the housekeeping folks came late to clean our room even though I'd previously left the "do not disturb"on door. Hotel is new, clean and has been a convenient...

Due to a convention, hotel options for Portland were slim, but we figured the HI Express would serve our needs. Free parking was a bonus, and the high Trip Advisor ratings were encouraging, so we went with it.
