The rates in general seem excessive,and, we were charged $60.00 extra for day 2 and 3 of our 3 day stay. We were not properly informed of the charges.

Enjoyed the room, nice linens and most important hotel was clean. The breakfast was much better than continental breakfast you get at most hotels. Best of all included in the price of the hotel. However, I am use to the Courtyard Marriott and prefer their restaurant type dining choices. I don't mind paying.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ekmc18 Nice stay
The hotel is nice and clean. The staff is friendly. You are located right off the freeway, so access to any of the hotspots are just 10min or less away. This is also nice because you can avoid all the traffic around the busy areas. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. Will stay here again.

The front desk personnel were great. I hadn't been there in months and Leo remembered me and asked how had I been, etc. Very warm comfortable feeling.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Portland24 TV and Internet didn't work
The hotel looks really nice but the TV and internet didn't work in the room. The staff was trying to fix it but didn't get it fixed during our stay.
Holiday Inns have got to get better quality breakfasts. The food and beverages are terrible.
Staff was nice at the front desk.
Location in Portland is not good. Don't walk around during the day or night. Call a cab.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SSKturn50 Great room, great location
We loved the location of this property - within walking distance of many great restaurants and only a couple of blocks to the streetcar to get to downtown. Comfortable bed/bedding and great staff, too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kgrammer Good service
When booking with IHG rewards, I specifically requested downtown area that would be good for walking to most tourist venues. This hotel was on the very utmost edge of what is considered downtown and really not convenient for walking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JP09 Very Pleasant Trip
We really enjoyed our stay at the HI express. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. The room served our purposes quite well. It was nice having two pillows, one labelled firm, and the other soft. Breakfast was good, with a variety of options. It would have been nice to have a microwave available to heat up the oatmeal. Our only problem was that the hot tub was not functioning properly. It was nice and warm, but would not turn on--the jets did not work.

We just stayed the one night but we where checked in very quickly...
our room although next to a busy entersection and hwy was really quiet....The room was super super clean! not even one little complaint....
The pool was great the kiddos enjoyed very much .....
Breakfast was excellent many options and everything was fully stocked .....
They are doing some limited remodeling, it did not effect our stay at all they did a great job making sure proper signage was up explaining their small messes.....
The only thing that could have been changed was that for some reason the Jets on the hottub did not seem to be working ! but who knows maybe it was just the user :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carrie A Great Location and Excellant Staff
I loved the location which is within a few blocks of the widest choice of restaurants and shops around. The staff were very personable which was welcomed after an 8 hour drive.
Remember this is not a full service hotel but the value for money was worth every penny.
Will stay here again and would highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CliffNZ Great hotel, excellent service!!
As above. Nothing more to say really except that the staff at any Holiday Inn are second to none! I think even if the hotel were lousy the staff would be the saving grace. Thankfully, both the staff and hotel in Portland were excellent. Thank you for a great stay and I will enjoy coming again in the near future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MRichards Excellent Hotel Stay Experience
I respect the Holiday Inn Express brand, and this hotel exceeded my expectations. I arrived much earlier then the normal check-in time, but the front desk was very helpful to get me in my room without any issues.
My room review is just as good as the friendliness of the staff.
The room was spotless, bathroom is larger then most hotel rooms, bed felt brand new, and a good selection of pillows. The bathroom was a huge plus. I would normally have trouble with having hot water in other hotels, but here it was not an issue.
The TV was in HI-Def. with a full selection of channels provided by Directv, which included a few choices of movie networks,
My only issue was the same with most hotels. The sink was slow to drain.
Overall, I am very pleased with this hotel and would recommend it to others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by emobdaily Happy with our stay
Good size room, location was not bad - we had less than 30 minute walk to heart of downtown Portland, and on a nice summer day, it was perfect. Just in time for brunch. 5 minute cab ride (less than $10).
Clean, lots of pillow choices, though we didn't notice until after the first night. Would be good to mention on check in (to highlight this amenity).
Staff was friendly and efficient. Check in and out were a breeze.
Would definitely stay again if coming to Portland.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TJ4DL On the edge of NW Portland
This is a good hotel choice if you want to be in NW Portland but it can be somewhat noisy since it's on NW Vaughn Street on the edge of the NW industrial area and it's close to the off ramp of the I-405 freeway. It's within walking distance of NW 23rd Street where there are a lot of shops and restaurants. The hotel has a large pool and jacuzzi on the lower level along with a small fitness center. There is a free continental breakfast with a decent selection of breakfast items. There is only one elevator in the lobby that is really slow. The stairwells at the end of each floor are narrow. Parking is free.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hgpw Nice beds
Although this hotel does not look that great from the outside, the rooms and beds are nice. The breakfast was ok, but the choice for something healthy was pretty slim. Oatmeal was from a packet with sugar/flavoring and the fruit was old and not very appetizing. If you want pastries there are several options! They also had eggs and breakfast meats...but again...if your health conscious it's not great. Coffee is good! For the price, I WILL stay here again next time. Staff at the front desk were very helpful. I also like free parking! Location is perfect and walking distance to great restaurants and shops. I had a great time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andrew Q L Quiet location, good spot.
We came during a city-wide water-boil notice. Holiday Inn didn't skip a beat and gave us bottled water upon check-in. The location is in the Northwest District of Portland, so its quieter and more smalltown-downtown area. Think of it like a large version of San Francisco's Hayes Valley. So consider that when booking this room for Portland. It's next to Cedar Creek Distillery and a short walk to a bus line that will take you downtown. The room was fine, shower and bathroom were all standard fare, nothing bad. Pricing was in keeping with the rest of the region.

We had a great stay, little expensive compared to other cities but the location is excellent, within walking distance to Nob Hill shopping and restaurants. Walking distance to street car which will take you downtown, to arial tram. It only took 14 minutes drive to the Zoo. The staff person was really wonderful at breakfast, lovely lady. The front desks staff were really helpful providing us with maps and directions. The room was great. Will recommend this hotel.

Dirty towels not removed from room two out of five nights. Had to put on floor or not picked up.
One of two waste baskets never cleaned (emptied)
Light out in bathroom but next day after call was replaced within ten minutes. This was great but housekeeping should have reported the outage. Hence, the room was not ready for guests..

I visit Portland at least 5 times a year and stay at the Holiday every time. The staff are great, rooms are clean, the workout area is perfect and the location is ideal for walking to nice places to eat and shop. I will never stay anywhere else. Enjoy!

The Holiday Inn is in a great location. Close to train station, shopping on 23rd Avenue with many great restaurants along the way. Room clean and super bed. Breakfast provided was excellent. Staff went out of their way to make sure your every need was taken care of. We will stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kelsey283 Great Location--Accessible to Great Restaurants
Terrific location for this Holiday Inn Express. Very close to boatloads of restaurants and shops . . . easy walk from your hotel. Convenient parking: easy in and easy out (and no valet or parking charge). Breakfast is included but it's a little barren (best bets are the bagels, yogurt, oatmeal, walnuts and fresh fruit#. Housekeeping is great: prompt and thorough . . . I would definitely stay at this property again #even if there is only one elevator for the entire place!)

I really thank to the US Department of Justice (USDOC) for placing us at this hotel. The room is very cleaned. The equipments are complete. The services of the front officer clerks, namely, Leo, Sobhna and Andrea are satisfied. I do like staying there. They are really helpful. The problem is about transportation because the hotel is fairly far from MAX, the cable train. That's all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bmclean328 Perfect for the business traveler
Rooms are very nice, comfortable and have all the amenities. The location is decent, on the outskirts of downtown, but close to some good bars/restaurants. Breakfast is terrible (plastic bacon and hockey puck biscuits) and you can certainly find a "nicer" hotel, but for the price I'm not sure there is a better option in Portland.
