Holiday Inn Portland-By the Bay, Portland
Well worth a stay!!wi
Our stay was wonderful! We were greeted by Dylan, who was polite, courteous and professional. She gave us lots of info about the area and offered us the shuttle service, although we chose to walk (because the location is wonderful!). The entire staff was friendly and professional! We will recommend!

Holiday Inn Portland-By the Bay, Portland
It was very comfortable and in a great location. Made it easy to get in and out of the city when I needed to. Shout out to Dylan at the front desk who was so accommodating when I had questions/needed to update my reservation. She was fantastic.
Corey, us1 night trip
Holiday Inn Portland-By the Bay, Portland
It's not terrible, but definitely shows it's age. carpets, windows, furniture, heater all show lots of wear and are a bit dirty. They are currently doing some remodeling/construction... So things may improve. Lounge bartender was not as friendly as the house staff.
