Let me first start out by saying that I am not a customer that generally writes reviews. I felt compelled to write one on the quality of this hotel after my recent stay however.
First, I had booked a King Suite room several days in advance and checked in during the early evening. I was told there were no other rooms available other than the one I was booked in. I was placed in Room 114 --- and for anyone staying at this hotel, make sure you are NOT booked in that room on arrival. Not only is this room the first room down the hall on the first floor, it is right next to the ice and vending machines, directly across the hall from the laundry room, and across from the echoing hallway that leads to the indoor swimming pool.
The laundry room is open 24 hours and trust me, people will use it at all hours. Between the slamming of the doors for staff beside me to the slamming of the laundry room door, I may have slept two hours at a time - maximum. People in the pool also echoes down the hallway (and the pool can be used apparently until midnight, even though I believe it was later than that in actuality).
After requesting my room be changed, I was told there were no more available rooms. However, the person traveling with me was able to check in AFTER me and receive, obviously, a different room.
In addition to the noise, the beds are hard and extremely uncomfortable. The sink is in the main room (with no easily accessible light switch) and does not have a trash can. The shower is old and the shower head can either drill you with water, or spray water all over the bathroom. I tried making a wake up call but no one answered to take my request.
The air conditioning unit made a terrible grinding noise and would wake me up when it turned on. And if you want to watch something on tv at night, you have very few options (although there are approximately 5 different versions of HBO).
All in all, I would never recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area and I am very disappointed in the quality of this hotel, and the inability of the staff to book me in a better room especially considering the frequency with which I stay in Holiday Inns.

Surprisingly comfortable. Enjoyed our stay. I would definitely stay here again if visiting. The staff was very willing to accommodate strange requests...being in a wedding i had to ask the hotel for some unusual service.

I can't say enough nice things about the staff at this hotel. They are always welcoming and friendly. The beds are a little hard, so they put 3 comforters under the sheet for us to act as a pillow top. We have gotten there early enough recently to enjoy the warm cookies, a really nice touch. The location is convenient and the food choices nearby are good for quick meals while working. The service at this hotel is head and shoulders above other IHG properties in the Portland metro area. We stay at this and other properties between 4-8 days a month, so we are very familiar with the levels of service.Other properties could learn from this location!
