Holiday Inn Portland-By the Bay, Portland
Graduation stay
Really enjoyed our stay at Inn by the Bay, we were there for graduation ceremony and spent 2 nights. The hotel is excellently located between downtown and old port, we walked every where. So many bars restaurants museums etc in walking distance. Rooms were clean and staff was friendly, only complaint was our giant window in room was hazed over, making viewing skyline, sunsets etc etc a bit sad. We went next door to family to take some photos thru their windows. All in all a good trip and I highly recommend the hotel.

Great location, but great parking too!
As always, the location is the best-- and I mean this in the best way: Holiday inn is in the one place where I don't see it as I am looking out-- the views are great! A big plus for this hotel in Portland right now is the ease of parking and the terrific rate.
