Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jrobert123 Convenient, clean, but a bit inconsistent
We stayed two nights this past week - not consecutively - in the Holiday Inn by the Bay. First night, the room was great. View of the water, slept well. However the second night we had a different room. Same great view, but once we went to bed we realized that the air conditioner sounded like a jet engine every time it came on. The loudest strangest sound I've ever encountered in an AC. Of course, since it was already quite late we didn't feel like getting dressed to move, even if they had offered it. So, it's kind of our fault.
We loved the lounge for drinks before dinner and the breakfasts were quite good although the service was a bit slow. In one case, I believe someone had not shown up for work, in the other case, it seemed to be the kitchen's issue.
Would I stay again? Yes, but I'd be sure that the AC was in good working order immediately. There are other large hotels in the area, but this one is priced the best.

I love the location of Holiday Inn-Portland By The Bay, as it is in walking distance from many of my favorite restaurants to eat at when I visit Portland. The views from both sides of the hotel I've stayed on were very nice, and the rooms were comfortable and spacious. The hotel staff was very helpful in recommending and helping me find restaurants and other places to go. I will definitely stay there again!

We stayed at the King Executive Suite with fantastic views of the harbor. Although it was a smoking room, the air was fresh. We loved this hotel so much we didn't even leave. It was beautiful to watch the boats and the bay. We had a nice time at the large, deep, clean pool. Then we ordered room service and watched some movies. Very relaxing!
