Loved this hotel and will stay here for future visits to the Portland area. The room was huge and the bathroom had a separate tub and shower. The contential breakfast was great and had a huge selection.

Right off interstate 5 yet far enough off so you don't get all the traffic noise. Nice neighborhood! Super clean with great coffee and food within walking distance. Right on a walking path in Lake Oswego.
Super location. I have stayed at three HIE in the past two months. They were all very good. This one was my least favorite but it was still a great property. The room wasn't as open as others I'd been to though, and the breakfast was too crowded. That's not so much your fault. More mine for getting there late and hitting the crowd. But the room was understaffed for the crowd there. They were working hard but couldn't keep up. Here's an example. They had four coffee pitchers, two decaf. Should have been enough. The first two were out when I got my cup. Used one of the two in back. Went back 5-10 minutes later for another and all 4 were out. The first two should have been filled while they were half-way out. Or put more out there. Peak time. I went back 5 more minutes after and still no coffee. That said, the food was ample that I could see. But coffee is a morning staple. If you have a lodge that big, expect lots of coffee drinkers. The pre-packaged scrambled eggs are easy for the hotel but less than average. And no bacon? It is very nice to have a free breakfast so thank you but I also want to point out that the HIE in Bowling Green, OH had a much better breakfast. This was a slight letdown after that. Glad that you had a business office to use (but the internet is painfully slow - I used my mobile). Missed having a desk in the room. I've come to expect that in almost every hotel I stay at, some cheaper than this. None here. Hope that helps. I'm still a fan.
To the south and southwest of downtown, this family-friendly region claims some of the city’s greenest pastures. Hayhurst’s 52-acre Alpenrose dairy complex boasts a stadium and a velodrome. Inside the Western-replica town of Dairyville, visitors find a doll museum and opera house, among other venues. Toward downtown, Portland Children’s Museum offers still more activities for the young folk.
