I came in just expecting a room but got such a great room with tons of amenities that I almost didn't want to go out. The room is pristine and comes with a full kitchenette and dishwasher. The hotel itself also provides free laundry machine use and internet. While it'd be nice to be closer to Downtown Portland, this is easily the best place to stay otherwise. By car it's honestly not that terribly far from the center of town, and they have a big strip mall of mainstream restaurants and stuff (CascadeStation) that are mostly open until midnight in case you need a meal in a pinch. There's also a park and ride MAX station nearby that, while it's a long ride into and out of town (and the train stops running before midnight), at least provides a convenient transit option. But honestly, the room itself was terrific and I absolutely recommend this joint.

Nice place, slow part of town. Not much traffic (except planes overhead). TV turned off every few minutes for about 3 seconds then came back on but we didn't watch much TV so it didn't bother us too bad. Very close to several restaurants and plenty of shopping.

Very pleased with our room. The room was spacious. We heard a few planes and then didn't really notice them. The breakfast was great!. I was just going to have oatmeal, then noticed the omelet. We weren't in the area very long so have no comment on the area. The one confusing thing was the freeway sign. It said North Airport Way, but the map had west and east. We picked west, and ended up having to loop around.

The Holiday Inn Express has just completed a thoughtful and tasteful room remodeling that puts at the top of the pile of modestly priced hotels. The décor is contemporary Asian with grass cloth walls and sleek furniture. The best part of the remodeling is that the hotel is now at the cutting edge of technology with multiple power outlets, USB and IPod and video connections throughout the room. Each room is equipped with a large, flat screen television, a pull-out desk and individual reading lights that provide light without disturbing other sleepers. The beds have both soft and firm pillows and high quality linens.
