I have stayed numerous times at this hotel, prior to or after a flight in/out of PDX. It’s an airport hotel, complete with complimentary shuttle to the terminal. The property has park and fly rates which might seem high, but upon checking out all of the other airport hotels the price is competitive. If you are without a car, you can catch the shuttle back to the terminal at PDX and catch “MAX”, the light rail train that will take you into downtown Portland. There is a stop at Cascade Station, just a few minutes from the terminal (terminating stop for the MAX red line train). This shopping complex includes IKEA, and the only Leatherman, Carhartt, and YoCrem shops in the country!
My most recent stay was just this past weekend for an overnight weekend get-a-way and to see “Oklahoma” at Portland Center Stage. I got a great AAA rate at this property so opted for the airport area instead of downtown. Upon arrival (which I was early), Linda (the very helpful and gracious front desk clerk) indicated my room wasn’t quite ready. Not a problem, besides it gave me the opportunity to grab a quick bite for lunch. Linda had already upgraded me to a suite (HiltonHHonors Gold). Usually when I stay at Hilton Garden Inn’s I have to ask if it is possible to be upgraded.
Rooms at this property are showing their age and in dire need of updating and renovating. Talking with the front desk staff, they indicated the entire Hilton Garden Inn properties would be getting major facelifts and renovations, which will be consistent brand-wide. Throughout my travels and stays a HGI’s I’ve noticed that many properties have been upgraded, while many still have the ’80 and 90’s look. The suite was very comfortable despite a couple non-working lights. The bed is always nice at HGI’s – the sleep number-style beds are great! I’m curious what the brand-wide upgrades will bring to the properties!
If you’re looking for a hotel room prior to an early morning flight, or upon returning very late at night before a long drive home, this is a good property with good rates. Be sure and request the park and fly rates when booking!
The hotel offers only breakfast and is the typical HGI buffet style, or you can request cooked to order omelets, etc. Its okay, being it’s complimentary for HiltonHHonor Golds.
One note about the noise level at this property. Rooms on the north side tend to be a bit noisier due to street traffic and jets departing from one of the multiple runways.
