We visited Portland the week after Labor Day. My niece who attended Lewis and Clark University, recommended we stay here and she was spot on. The hotel is basically in the business and transportation center of the city and a convenient walk to most things on this side of the river including Powell books and the hordes of micro breweries....

The hotel is nothing to write home about, just classic furniture and decorations. The location is excellent however right in the center of Portland. You have absolutely everything within walking distance - restaurants, bars, shops, museums, parks, and of course Portland's famous bookshops. Combined with this, the rates are usually excellent at this hotel for a place so central. The... More

I had a very satisfactory stay at this hotel. The staff is extremely friendly and easy to deal with. Because I have Marriott Gold status I was booked in a top floor room with access to the club lounge. The room was small but very clean, with a pretty view of the downtown area. While the club lounge was open... More

No faults were found with this hotel. Check-in and out were quick. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. I left my fleece in the lobby after check-out and realized it half-way to the airport. Called the front desk and gentleman who answered phone found and it and put it away for safe keeping. Crystal from housekeeping was kind enough... More

The hotel is located in the heart of downtown and is a short walk to most sights, restaurants and shops. The overall appearance of the hotel is very nice, from the lobby to the rooms themselves. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. The only things that keep me from rating it higher is the bed and bathroom. The beds... More

A nice small hotel located in the middle of Portland....not really a full service Marriott but it seems to be listed as one. There were less than a dozen rooms per floor....just a lot of floors....odd configuration but a helpful staff...

The hotel is decent, the staff is wonderful, but no wifi or continental breakfast. It just amazes me. I've spent less i. bigger cities (similar times of the year) with both provided. I don't expect much but that is something that should just be mandatory.....

Very nice hotel - quiet, clean and friendly staff. Our check in was efficient and without incident. They have a computer in the lobby for use, but the Wi-Fi is ridiculously priced, as is overnight parking (even by large city standards). The bathroom is very nice with an excellent selection of shampoos, etc... A small coffee pot with free coffee... More

The room at this 3 1/2 star hotel was comparable to many of the 4-star Portland hotels at which I've stayed, minus the personality. The location is fantastic and centrally located. The parking is overpriced and I had difficulty with internet connectivity, especially in the room (at&t wouldn't work at all and verizon was very spotty). Front desk staff was... More

Really nice hotel downtown and convenient with everything within easy walking distance. The room had a very comfortable bed, large TV, and very clean with nice amenities. The Gym is acceptable but lacks some of the more advanced workout needs. Restaurant was excellent but we only ate breakfast so I can't comment on other meals. The lounge and bar area... More
