Having stayed at hotels around the country for business for the past 20+ years, I am rather picky about where I will stay. The Portland Airport Clarion is surprising in the number of positive things that distinguish it from other mid-price hotels. From the outset, the service staff have been polite, informative, and helpful. The rooms are clean and airy. There is a breakfast offering included in the price that is more than just cereal - with a number of fresh fruits, wafles, good coffee, juices, and so on. There is a reasonably sized pool and small, but functional excercise area. Free internet access and printer in the lobby. Conference rooms for rent as well. Tuesday nights the hotel brings in a performer ("The Voice") - a one man Frank Sinatra type singer with a taped "backup band", and offers complimentary finger food and non-alcoholic beverages; a very nice way to take a break from the day before heading out to dinner.
There is a free shuttle to the airport (about two miles away. My entire company stays there - from CEO on down - routinely because of all of the above. I've stayed there some 25 nights over the past year, and have found it a very convenient, clean, comfortable, cost-effective. What else can I say? For the money, you can't beat it.
