Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mark1983 Doors Locked After 10pm - Terrible Manager
My girlfriend and I flew out to Oregon this past weekend for a friend's wedding. Since she had never been to Oregon and I lived in Portland for 3 years previously, we decided to take off work Friday to explore the night life after the long flight landing Thursday evening. We arrived at the hotel around 11:15pm and found the doors locked and only able to be unlocked by the very unfriendly manager on duty for the night.
Once we dropped off our bags in our room, our plan was to grab some late night appetizers and a few drinks at a nearby established. With limited time left in the night we rushed down to the lobby and headed out the front of the building. It was rainy and slightly colder than my girlfriend expected so we decided to head back in to get her a jacket. This was no easy event having to waive down the rude manager. Once we got back to the room, we decided to stay after oddly feeling like we were distributing the on duty grump.
I understand the thought of safety but also enjoy my freedom while traveling on vacation. Having the doors locked after 10pm made us feel like we were in prison. If I knew the doors would be locked after 10pm and we would of spent the night watching tv in the hotel after the long flight, I would not paid the extra money to stay downtown. The only bright side was we only were staying one night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wayneTammy Perfect choice for our first visit to Portland
This was our first visit to Portland. My wife and I took our 2 children on a road trip. The location of this hotel is perfect to get around to all the attractions. It was very quiet at night and everyone was very friendly. We will stay here again on our next visit to Portland.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Treesap Good location for those wanting to be downtown and NW
We enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly. The beds and pillows were EXTREMELY comfortable. I wasn't saying I wish I could go home to be in my own bed.
The breakfast is average, nothing really spectacular. I do have to say the sausage gravy was disgusting. I look at that as a pro since it kept me from eating junk. I was glad to see apples and bananas that were actually ripe.
We would return if we ever stay in Portland again.

This is one of the best! As I drove up I noticed the beautiful flowers hanging and ground. The grounds were spotless. As I entered the lobby, smiling faces greeting me. Our room was spacious and clean. Such a treat to have everything in one package. Breakfast was very good and the staff very conciencous about making sure all the supplies and food bins were filled. This is a top notch place and I can't say enough for it. Thank You!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Virg24 NW Portland Ease
Loved this hotel and the close proximity to all that NW Portland has to offer. The rooms were clean, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good and convenient. This hotel is at the top of 23rd, and so many good restaurants and shopping started less than a block away. Also on site parking makes this hotel a great choice. For anyone that has been to Portland, you know how hard it is to find parking anywhere. Also freeway close!
I highly recommend this property.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by traveler4000 Snarky service at a satisfactory facility in a good location
I give this hotel stay a poor rating because of the rudeness of the staff. I had a made a request with my reservation and only because I called on my way to the hotel to confirm was I told the request could not be met. The manager gave me a lecture on how requests are not guaranteed. He did nothing to help me resolve the issue. I am mother traveling with children. The request involved cribs and the well being of children, it was clear the hotel would not be child friendly. His rudeness was considerable. I would have made other arrangements if I didn't consider it too late. I contacted the 1-800 number after my stay to let them know that their locations employ rude people and that requests need to be communicated to the hotel earlier - so that other arrangements can be made if necessary.
I spoke with another guest during my stay - they too dealt with rude desk staff.
Once I arrived I was able to work with a nice young lady at the desk and we resolved my issue.
My initial treatment was so distasteful, it impacted my overall experience.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PoorBoy89 Toilet does not flush
So we checked into this hotel and after using the toilet we noticed it did not flush well. Called in the morning to get it handled and the staff just brings up a plunger for me to handle the plunging. She did offer after I asked if I had to handle the task myself. Plunged that day and it worked but next morning it was clogged again. Note: this is without doing anything serious in the toilet. Went downstairs and asked to have our room to be changed. Lady at front desk looked shocked that we wanted to change our room and was offering for them to have maintenance look at it. We just did not want to deal with the possibility that it would not be resolved and just wanted our vacation to go on with out worries of a problem toilet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MarieOlivia Convenient and economical
This hotel was easy to get to as it was right off the Freeway. It was an easy walk to the trolley and we were able to navigate around Portland from this trolley. The scenery immediately around the hotel was lacking and one's first impression might be "oh no", but just a few walking blocks away were trendy restaurants and neighborhoods. Having free parking and breakfast was a sell for us, and we were only staying one night. The room was a bit small and there was no view (our view was a brick wall of the building next door), but we were not in Portland to spend time in the room but to get out and see the city. For this purpose, the hotel was fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happy00 great retreat
I stayed two nights at this hotel on a "mama retreat", meaning I was exhausted and basically wanted to catch up on rest. Although the hotel was close to being completely booked it was extremely quiet. Everything was very clean and all the staff were very very friendly. I stayed in a king room that also had a desk, small couch, coffee table, microwave, fridge, and coffee pot. The bed was so comfortable. I believe they also offer pillows with different firmness levels. The hotel is in walking distance to many great restaurants and shops. It is seriously a two minute walk to a great french cafe with wonderful pastries and coffee, a bagel shop, and a high quality grocery store complete with its own deli and salad and soup bar-- all high quality fresh ingredients! I will definitely be staying again.

Staff at Holiday Inn Express, specifically Cassy and Frank, were a delight. Location to the streetcar and the beautiful Nob Hill neighborhood was great. Thanks to all at this hotel including our fresh, clean room and the pretty flowers planted outside the hotel, you can tell there was a lot of caring individuals working here.

Really great location for shopping, dining and exercising (walking or running in nearby Forest Park). Only issue was that some of the front desk staff were rather vague about directions. Seemed to assume we had some familiarity with the area, which we did not.

I was worried if I'd booked us in a "bad" part of Portland considering the value....boy was I wrong. Just a few blocks up the street ended up being one of my favorite streets to stroll along in Portland. Fantastic restaurants, bars and shopping (23rd NW).
Also really easy access to the freeways. Great find!

Comfortable room & staff.
The location was close to everything we were interested in and we walked to China town (Pearl district) and another day downtown to the Pioneer Park. Even to Washington Park.
This is our second stay at this hotel and we will be back.

This was a great place to stay. Had everything we needed. It was close to the MAX which we took each day back and forth to the waterfront area. Breakfast was more than enough. Laundry was also helpful. We loved this place and we will stay here when we make it back to portland some day.

Staff was friendly and very helpful. I had several packages that were being mailed to me and they had no issue signing and holding them for me. We were upgraded to a sweet for the first night as double beds weren't available which was nice. The location is PERFECT to experience NW 23rd street, we ate at a new restaurant every night, all within walking distance and the highway entrance is right there as well. I will be going back to this HIE when I'm back in Portland.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marcus38 Great location - surprising value.
My family and I picked this Holiday Inn Express because of it's location and price. We were not expecting the quality of the property to be so great! The rooms were very spacious and comfortable! The lobby area is adjoined by a separate reading area and accesses the dinning area. Simply a great, warm, welcoming design! The gym is rather small and the equipment limited but it is all well maintained and sufficient for a short visit. Very nice pool area with whirlpool, both well maintained. Parking was very easy which is a big deal being so close to the Pearl District. Many local shops and the trolly are within short walking distance. I would recommend this facility to anyone!!

This hotel isn't downtown in the heart of Portland, however, it is very close and has something better to offer - all the shops and restaurants on NW 23rd just down the street! If you want to head downtown it is only a quick taxi ride or drive. We found the rooms to be very nicely decorated and the beds were perfect!

Your desk clerk Cassy was wonderful. Welcomed us to Portland,recommended great place for dinner and plain took care
of us like family. The only reason staff received a Good was because the morning clerk acted like she didn't want to be there and we were something she had to deal with. That would have been my last thought on checking but because Of Cassy I will recommend. to others and will return. Thank you.
