On a business trip to Portland, not the hotel I would have picked as our meeting was in Northeast, but overall a good stay. The hotel is in a great neighborhood with some really great restaurants, bars and shopping a short walk away. Unfortunately it rained all but our first night in town so we didn't do a great deal...

I moved here on a whim because I didn't like where I stayed last night. I thought I would stay in Vancouver, WA instead of Downtown Portland, OR to save my company a little money. Not only is this property less per night, but included internet, parking, and breakfast. The desk staff were genuinely friendly (instead of fake smile fake...

I stayed one night here - didn't know Portland but found I could walk / ride the tram to everywhere I wanted to visit. Good example of a good Holiday Inn Express - safe area, pleasant clean room, clean self-service laundry, free strong wifi, clean bathroom with good strong shower, good breakfast. Friendly service. Would recommend.

We and another couple spent 3 nights here and were so impressed with the accomodations and the staff. The full free breakfasts are great! Try the biscuits & gravy. I really liked the scrambled eggs and the omelets. If we were missing anything in our rooms, they were right up with the replacement. Great internet service, too. I highly recommend...

We stayed in Portland as part of new England road trip. The hotel is fairly standard holiday inn, but does the job well. Nice helpful staff and good location for seeing Portland. Portland is a great place to visit.

Everything in Portland was a 5min car ride or 30 min walk away. Room was clean and room service was timely and good. Everybody was friendly at the front desk every day. The breakfast could use a little more love, but free is still free.

We stayed here for our 2nd night as part of a road trip. The location seemed random at first but was very convenient for getting around Portland and onto the freeway. The building was older than many Holiday Inns we have stayed in but it was clean and well maintained. All the staff we encountered while staying here were very...

It's clean, well run, free parking, free wifi, varied breakfast choice in a clean dining room, handy essentials store, wonderful room service , comfortable beds and in an excellent location.

Stayed 3 nights and was delighted with every aspect. Clean, quiet and comfortable. Very good mattress and the sheets felt expensive, so soft. The complimentary breakfast did not have the waffle maker like many do, but the hot items were scrambled eggs and bacon one morning, and cheese omelets and sausage the next, with biscuits and gravy both days.

Delighted to find such a reasonably priced, well located hotel. First pulled up with two teens who were skeptical of the location, but after a five minute walk we knew we were in the right place. A Foodies delight for small bistros and diners with unique shops to boot. Besaw's was great! A coop grocery a couple of blocks away....
