We booked a room for three nights there because we wanted to be downtown. The rate was actually pretty good, but by the time you add on all the extras for things like parking ($37 a day) and wifi ($15 a day), the place is no bargain. Room are small, but what you'd expect in a downtown area. Service is... More

I wanted to personally thank you for such an honest review. First, I would like to thank you for choosing Portland Marriott City Center. I would also like to address the issue of cost that you have brought up. The reason for the higher cost is mainly because of the time of year. Summer is high tourism season for Portland... More

The ease of Portland residents was clearly here at the Marriott Portland City Center. In the midst of the chaos (people checking in - rooms not ready - luggage behind the reception), the staff at this hotel took their time to help whomever was in front of them. The location is awesome as we easily avoided renting a car or... More

This Marriott is a great location (the southwest section of the City): walking distance to several restaurants, Pioneer Square (where the Visitors' Center is located and where you pick up the tour buses), food trucks, a Rite Aid pharmacy (get your bottled water here), and the famous Voodoo Donuts. The only negative is that the Marriott doesn't offer breakfast, but... More

This was a comfortable stay for my partner and I in May to explore Portland for a few days. The room was clean, bed comfortable and front desk staff helpful. Parking is expensive, so we parked in one of the downtown car parks which worked out to be much more affordable. Portland is a great city and we could walk... More

We stayed here for two nights and had a good time. The neighborhood is not the best but the ease of travel within the city via Portland's Street Cars and Max Light Rail made up for it. The staff at the hotel were really nice and very approachable as far as tourist questions. Make sure to go to the OMSI... More

Yes, I know it is not trendy or sheik but it is in the right place and it is a known quantity. I travel 40 weeks a year and knowing what I will receive is a huge thing to me.

Our trip schedule had to change and the plan only let us stay in Portland for 2 days. So we decided to come back to Marriott City Center. The hotel's location is great, and the room is clean, updated, big, bright and open. We had the room with the Mt. Hood view! The service is great, and you really cannot... More

I go to this hotel every time I'm in Portland. I wouldn't think of any other. It's centrally located, waling distance to restaurants, bars and shopping, and it's close to the airport. Perfect place. Clean and attentive staff. I love it.

Please read my profile for my biases. I am a big Marriott fan, and this was the last Marriott property in Portland I had yet to try. There were a couple of reasons for this. First, it tends to be booked solid and second it is a bit pricey. When I found out months ago that I needed to be... More
