We are not a family that is terribly into the "experience" of staying in a hotel. For us, it's a place to lay our weary heads when we're finished playing.
To that end, the HIE Portland provided exactly what we needed. The room was clean and very modern. All the appointments were chic for a budget hotel and I felt very comfortable there. If you have stayed at HI Express hotels in the past, this one will offer all the things you've come to expect with a little more style and sophistication. The free breakfast is good but not great. The sundry shop is ample but small. All in all, EXACTLY what one should expect from this type of hotel. If you want to feel pampered with room service and a soft robe before you get your spa treatment, this isn't your place. However, if you want to feel comfortable when your there, rested when you get up and grab a little something before you head out for the days adventure (or next business meeting or the ilk), then you will not be disappointed by HIE Portland.
