If you like a uniform corporate hotel experience, this Holiday Inn Express delivers in spades. This is not a bad thing, I travel over 100 nights a year and appreciate the reliability of a known product.
Overall this property delivers just what HIE's are designed to do, give the traveler a clean quiet place to stay for business. It is located very close to Portland International Airport and offers a free shuttle which was prompt, clean and the driver was courteous.
My room was clean, well maintained and provided a great work table to do my paperwork. More on this later. There is no restaurant on the property and you have the choice of a mediocre Chinese restaurant, or fast food, all within walking distance. The staff was great, but I did not have to deal with them beyond the check-in process. Parking was average.
My only complaint is the in room work area. It had the largest most uncluttered work table I have ever seen in in a HIE. It allowed me to spread out my work and be very productive. But when the room was laid out, an electrical and internet outlet was not installed at table height making it necessary to crawil under the table to plug these in. A small oversight, but very annoying after getting on your hands and knees to plug in for a multiple day stay.
