Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Portland by The Bay

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Love Being Back Home in Portland."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Our room was clean and inviting. We had breakfast this morning at the Port of Call Restaurant in the hotel. Danielle, graciously appeared at our table and informed me there would not be a charge for the total breakfast. Danielle is a valued Holiday Inn employee, I suggest that management take care of her. I am a Hilton Honors member. However I recently joined the IHG Club and will definitely stay again at a IHG hotel on my way back to Sarasota this September.
