Staybridge Suites Portland Airport
Travel Blogs from Portland
It was our last day in Oregon and I was a little sad that our lovely vacation was coming to an end. But we had one more day of fun ahead of us. After the horrible drive through Portland yesterday, we did not want to get back in the car, so the hotel shuttle took us to the Cascades metro stop. There were some issues with the fare machines, so a nice …
Thursday morning, we woke up and had breakfast at the hotel. One nice amenity in this hotel is their rooftop garden. Had we gotten in before sunset last night, it would have been a great spot to watch the sun go down. But we missed the sunset, so before checking out, we headed up there and got some nice pictures of Astoria and the river from the …
... I think the toughest part about teaching while I’m there will be controlling the classroom, whose sizes range from 10-14, and getting out of my shell with kids that don’t speak my language. I’ll definitely have to get used to speaking slower and more clearly.
Is this a volunteer position?
As great as it would be to volunteer for a year, I wouldn’t accept a position across the world if I was not being paid fairly. ...
Today we had to return our little piece of freedom that had served us so well- our hire car. We'd managed to clock up just over 5500 miles in the 4 weeks, which ain't bad going. We then took the metro back into downtown Portland and spent the day exploring.
First stop was the Japanese Gardens on the outskirts of town. We'd been told they are amazing and apparently ranked as one of the ...
... Of course, we had come down as tourists so, assuming our designated side, we hit up another well recommended joint Local Ocean Seafoods. This place is a market and restaurant serving up only fresh, locally caught seafood, specifying on the menu from which boat the fish had been brought in. Again, we order to go, some smoked salmon spread to take to dinner tonight, a bowl of clam chowder, and a crab po-boy. I have to say, I think ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsStaybridge Suites Portland Airport
We stayed at the Staybridge Suites Portland Airport for two nights. I procrastinated booking a hotel for the Portland area and kind of booked this last minute. I don't particularly care for Holiday Inn and it was last minute, so I wasn't expecting much - something relatively clean (I hoped) and close to the airport. After our stay, however, I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the front desk staff who went out of their way to help us by explaining the Metro and how to use it to get to different points in the city. They also provided a shuttle to the nearest Metro stop - Cascades, as it would a little far to walk. The suites were really big and well furnished. I guess the hotel is more for people staying for a longer period of time, but it was nice to have a big room to get all out stuff packed up at the end of our trip. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were very clean. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was really good and they had a nice big indoor pool and hot tub, which was a nice way to relax after a busy day. They have a fitness center as well, but I never had the opportunity to use it. And of course the location was extremely convenient - less than five minutes to the car rental return at the airport. Overall, I wasn't expecting much out of this hotel, but it turned out to be a lot nicer than expected. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

Historical Traveler Reviews Staybridge Suites Portland Airport
Ein Muss für Benutzer des Portlander Flughafens
Mir hat das Staybridge sehr gut gefallen. Das Personal ist hervorragend. Ich möchte besonders Danny hervorheben. Ich kenne zwar nicht seine offizielle Funktion, aber er hat mir mit einem Reißverschluss, der von der Flughafensicherheit bei einer Gepäckkontrolle kaputtgemacht worden war, unheimlich viel geholfen.
Der Pool ist im Innern des Hotels, er ist ansprechend und SAUBER. Der Whirlpool hat genau die richtige Temperatur!
Die Suiten sind sehr sauber und gemütlich. Ich werde bei allen Flügen ab oder nach Portland in diesem Hotel absteigen.
Le top pour les voyageurs de PDX
J'ai aimé le Staybridge. Le personnel est remarquable. J'apprécie particulièrement Danny. Je ne suis pas sûr de son titre, mais il est allé au delà de mes attentes en m'aidant avec une fermeture éclair d'une valise qui avait été cassée par la sécurité de l'aéroport pendant le contrôle des bagages.
La piscine est couverte, très propre et la décoration est très agréable. Le jacuzzi est à une température parfaite!
Les suites sont très propres et cosy. J'y séjournerais dans le futur pour toutes mes escales entre deux vols à Portland.
My wife and I spent a week traveling down the Oregon Coast and staying in various cities. (We researched all our stays on TripAdvisor.)
Very nice hotel near the airport
The staff was very nice. Room was also nice, a suite style with a
door between the living room and BR. kitchen area, 2 tv's, vcr.
AAA discount on the hotel web site
Great Place to Stay for Park N' Fly out of PDX!!!! :-)
We stayed here in Feb '06 before we left on a trip to Hawaii. The hotel is very beautiful, rustic looking. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite, which we didn't need but it was fun to have all that room.
Staff at front desk was OK. One of the gals was on the phone talking to friends about plans for the night or something, which was quite unprofessional but they were young and I guess that it wasn't surprising.
We were too early for breakfast so they gave us a bag to go!
Great place to do a park 'n fly out of PDX!
Great for early departures!
Stayed just for a night so that we could get to the airport for a VERY early flight. The room was comfortable, quiet, and would have been great for a longer stay. The staff prepares "bag breakfasts" for those leaving before the continental breakfast starts - and the snack bars, apple, and juice were perfect to tide us over. We walked out of the hotel at 4 a.m. and were thrilled to check out quickly and even get breakfast! That is great customer service!
Your best bet for the area
The Springhill Suites are very nice. We used our Marriott Rewards and I was a little disappointed that we had the room next to the elevator. But the room had everything needed. Its a 2 room suite with a kitchen area with micro, fridge, coffee and sink. The bed is very comfortable. We enjoyed the free internet access and the breakfast was more than we expected for "free". Eggs, sausages, muffins, oatmeal, juice, fruit, waffles, etc. They even have a wine, beer and cheese happy hour every Tuesday Night. The hotel is in a very nice area with close access to the airport. The area does lack in restaurants. We liked the area very much and it was easy access to the major highways to do all of the sightseeing in the city.
We stayed at the Staybridge Suites Portland Airport the night before we left for Rome. They offered a great Park n Fly rate, comparable to other airport hotels. However, when we got there, we realized that the hotel didn't compare to the other hotels...it was MUCH BETTER!
My husband and I stayed at this hotel Dec '04. It takes alot to impress me and I was impressed!!!! We have traveled alot but seldom have we stayed in a hotel with the aminities that Staybridge offers and for the price. The rooms are huge and spotless! The bedroom is seperate from the living area and full kitchen. The staff are the best and go above and beyond to assure your every need is met--and always with a smile!!
We stayed at this hotel for 1 night on 14th Oct 2004. Although we booked a 1 bedroom suite, we were given the 2 bedroom one & what a wonderful suite it was! The first bedroom had a king bed, desk, TV & bathroom - the second one had 2 queens, TV & bathroom. There was another TV in the lounge/dining area plus a VCR, also in that room was the full kitchen with a full-sized fridge with icemaker. The 2 bedrooms were so far apart, there was no noise at all. All the amenities at this hotel were faultless - the pool was great, the brekkie was fabulous, the FREE laundry facilites were appreciated & the staff were very nice. On Tues-Thurs they have a manager's reception which in fact is a free dinner. Although we didn't partake, a lot of guests did & looked like they were enjoying it. They have a lovely BBQ area with grass & outdoor furniture which was also being used a lot.
