We stayed at the Clarion Hotel Portland Airport for the last night of a two-week tour around Oregon. It was handy being close to the airport for our flight out the next day. Overall, a pleasantly adequate stay for the price we were willing to pay.
-Well appointed king room with microwave, fridge, iron, long mirror, pull-out bed, desk, kitchenette, nice towels.
-Modern & clean.
-Comfy memory-foam type mattress.
-Free ample outdoor parking.
-Basic standard hotel buffet breakfast included with eggs, bacon, potatoes, juice, english muffins, boiled eggs, coffee, tea. No oatmeal.
-Nice view of the water outside.
-Outdoor breakfast seating available with a view of the water.
-Complimentary hot drinks available in the lobby.
-Attractive modern decor in the lobby and rooms.
-Essential items mini store and vending machines with drinks and microwave meals available just off the lobby.
-Close to the airport.
-The guy on the desk was just OK -- not exactly 'Mr. Personality', but did his job.
-Breakfast was a bit basic, typical hotel food, but better than nothing.
-After asking for a non-adjoining room, we ended up with a room by the elevator, but fortunately it was quiet.
TIP: For dinner we ate at the nearby Bistro 123, which was reasonably priced.

My room is spacious and clean and faced the little lake in the back of the building. The free breakfast was satisfactory but expectedly not gourmet quality. Shuttle service was slow with picking me up at the airport but that was probably due to the traffic congestion entering PDX and not the fault of the hotel or the driver. In all I got what I expected at the Clarion and I would stay here again when on my way through Portland.
