Portand Hotel convenient to airport and downtown

Hi, We're traveling to Portland in Sept. and arriving at about 9 in the evening. We plan to send a few days there before heading to the coast. We are looking for recommendations of places to stay that are easyto get to from the ariport but have transportation to downtown. Prefer, if possilbe, included breakfast and no parking fee...moderate price. Thanks for any advice.

The airport is only about 30 min from downtown. The coast is only about 90 min from downtown.
You can take a taxi downtown or ride the Train.
Very few hotels have no parking fee, but there are Smart Parks everywhere in town. There are a few very nice moderate hotels in town.

If you stayed out by the airport, you would not be able to visit anywhere without taking trains in and out of town all the time..at night that would not be so pleasant.
And it is not that pleasant looking around the airport eithe..

If you reserve your hotel through the Portland visitors bureau site, www.pova.com , you will get free parking and breakfast for two. They have all price ranges and you can cancel without penalty up til a day or so in advance.

Stay downtown. As Scarlett says, the airport area is very boring - unless you love IKEA and Home depot.
