Our room was comfortable and the beds were cozy. The room has a coffee maker and there is the usual breakfast downstairs. There is also a pool and hot tub, which were nice after driving all day. Free parking and easy access off the highway. Easy to miss narrow entrance to parking lot it is directly in front of the...

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.

Let's start with the positives: The staff members were friendly, polite, and attentive to our needs! The location of the hotel is close to downtown Portland, however, a cab ride is necessary (The cab was VERY quick with picking us up). Parking was free, which is a plus in a city. The room itself was clean...no problem there. Now, some...

The reason I wouldn't give this property 5 stars is because rooms on the first 3 floors that are even numbered get a building as their view. I was staying for 3 nights and asked for a room change. They were very accommodating and I was put in a room with a view of the bridges. Noisy, but a nice...

The facility is clean, rooms spacious, wifi is free, the room has a Keurig for coffee and local establishments worth a visit are a block or two away. The free breakfast was nothing to write home about, but the selection was good- yogurt, cereal, eggs, bacon, baked stuff, juice. I found the staff to be courteous and helpful. The location...

Spent an evening on business travel. Free parking. No crime or other threats that I could see and I walked outside near dark. Clean, comfortable rooms,. Microwave, Kuerig machine and refrigerator in rooms. Fast check in and staff did a small favor that they did not have to (excellent customer service attitude). Much better value than hotels right downtown and...

The stay started reasonably well. Alright, Internet connectivity was more difficult than it should be and the breakfasts were barely average (poor selection) etc. On the penultimate day we were out for most of the day and upon return were very disappointed that our room had not yet been serviced by 4.30 pa. Front desk staff shrugged this off saying...

This was our first time in Portland, so we wanted to be near 23rd St. N.W. shopping, the Rose Garden/Japanese Gardens and Powell's Books. This fit the specs. It is a typical Holiday Inn; nothing great, but just fine. We paid the same here as the Hyatt in Seattle, with the Hyatt coming in ahead in room and breakfast.

Driving toward the hotel from the freeway overpass, I wasn't sure if the room would be quiet as city noise has a way of filtering in, but our room was indeed quiet. Room was also spacious with a good sized bathroom, although I wish the showerheads at Holiday Inn were not so "low flow." It takes longer to rinse which...
