Holiday Inn Portland Airport (I-205)

Reviewed 11 July 2014

We wanted to leave our car at a park-and-fly hotel near the Portland Airport, so I called several who billed themselves this way. Four-out-of-five said, "You can leave your car here if we have room in our parking lot." Not the for-sure response I was looking for. The Holiday Inn on Columbia Blvd said that they would be glad to have us spend the night, leave our car, and have a ride to the airport (5 minutes) on their 3-times-per hour no-charge shuttle. Everything worked perfectly including the pickup-and-return.
This hotel has recently had a major face lift. The rooms are pleasant, reasonably priced, and the restaurant in the lobby is busy and attractive. We were very pleased and will definitely be back.

We finally found the perfect hotel for us when flying out of the Portland, Oregon airport! We stumbled on this Holiday Inn in the spring, and have been back since for a recent trip. The location is great for getting to the airport easily using the hotel shuttle, parking your own vehicle up to 30 days, and a place to eat on site. Not the most amazing atmosphere for a restaurant but there is a full bar with drinks we enjoyed (a great vodka martini), and the bar staff friendly. And yes, the food is really very good. Return shuttle when you land is a breeze.

Room Tip: We have stayed twice, different locations within the hotel and found both rooms really quiet...no ov...

We stayed here on the last night of our trip since it was close to the airport. We were upgraded to a suite on check in. We had a bedroom, living room and small bar area. It was very clean but nothing particularly special.

Needed to stay near the airport for an early flight home after a 4 day trip to Bandon Dunes. HI Express Airport Portland was perfect. Staff was very friendly and rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast starts early at the hotel for those early (6:00 a.m.) flights which was nice. shuttle was right on time. Would recommend for a short stay near the Portland Airport.

On the way beck from Anchorage to UK, we had to change plane at Portland. We decided to break journey in Portland and stay overnight. Glad we did. Hotel accommodation was very good, not smelly at all as indicated in some reviews. The bed was fantastic, we slept very well on it, recovering from Anchorage to Portland journey which was between 2.00am and7.00am, but also prepared us for further14hours journey to Uk.

Reception staff were very helpful. We got a list of places to visit and informations on various restaurants.

Next morning we had very healthy and full breakfast for our onward journey.

Hotel has free shuttles to Airport every twenty minutes. a very helpful service.

We stayed here for 5 days in mid-June, meeting my sister and her husband from back east, she chose the hotel. First of all , I would say that the bed was very comfortable, the room was clean, the bathroom vanity was spacious, and the water pressure in the shower was good. Those were the best things about this hotel.The noise from the heater/air conditioner woke me up hourly, and I travel with a white noise sound machine. The room really never felt warm enough for me, but I am always cold. When we would get back to the hotel in the evening, the maids set the thermostat to 60 degrees, which even my husband thought was extreme. There was no refrigerator in our room, or microwave, both would have been nice to have, but I think some rooms have them. The area around the hotel is not very attractive, but it is close to the airport. A train would go by periodically, but that did not bother me, as I have the noisemaker. There are some dark drapes on the window that do not close, there is a room darkening liner, but it just wasn't dark enough in the room. We had dinner the first night in the restaurant in the hotel, we all felt it was overpriced and the wait was long. There must have been a lot of room service going on , because the restaurant wasn't really busy. There is a coffee shop in the lobby, which is nice, the coffee was reasonably priced, but the sandwiches were pricey. I would say this would be a good hotel, if you are flying to Portland, for a day or two(we were driving) .It was quite difficult finding a parking spot at times They have a shuttle to and from the airport also.

Dear sherryd647,

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay. It's nice to know that you found the beds comfortable and the bathroom spacious. On the other hand, it is very troubling to read that noise challenges from the air conditioning system and other room amenities were a letdown. We apologize for the shortcomings you have experienced. Please know that all comments are acted upon, as we rely on you, our valued guests, to tell us how we are doing and how we can better meet your needs.

Should your future travel plans bring you back to the area, we would love the opportunity to serve you better.

Kind Regards,

Tracy V.

The hotel is older but updated. It has a very nice lobby with a small cafe with coffee which is nice. Then you walk down a long hall that needs some paint and updating. The room was updated but should its age. It was clean and did not have any smells like some other reviews. They do have a nice lounge on the 8 th floor with soda and a snack

My complaint is the location you seem to drive in a crazy big circle to get here and once you figure out where you are at and that you are on the back side it's to late
