This is my third stay - this time, 4 nights for a conference. This Marriott finally has free wi-fi for Marriott Reward members (yippee). Well appointed rooms within walking distance to light-rail stops at Pioneer Square.

Room prices were a bit higher for conference meeting guest rooms. It did not include wifi. I could not find a place to sit quietly out of the range of the louder than normal music through out the hotel. Room and bath were adequate, though only one small bar in bath to hang the towel. As I said, something was... More

Well appointed, desk and bell staff were friendly, but two issues marred my stay. 1: The WiFi was terrible. I need WiFi that has a decent speed and isn't dropping in and out. To top it off, my T-Mobile reception in the room was almost non-existent, so I needed the WiFi to be able to make calls, but it was... More

Well located property in downtown Portland. Food carts only a couple of blocks away. Rooms were large and rollaway request was accommodated without issues. Property was clean and well maintained. Gym had an adequate variety of equipment. Staff overall were friendly and helpful. Lounge was good, with friendly staff and decent food selection. Non-alcoholic drink selection was a bit weak,...

Located in the heart of downtown Portland. I stayed here for a work trip and all the staff were friendly and accommodating. You can walk to a variety of restaurants and bars from the hotel. The water is only about 7-8 blocks away, as well. I would probably stay slightly northwest of this location if I visited Portland again.

Thank you, Marriott staff! My stay was brief (only one night). However, you made it a comfortable stay and done so with what I would call "natural hospitality". From the valet that greeted us in our taxi, to the graveyard doorman, and even the restaurant staff, they were attentive and personable at every turn. Not to mention that our room... More

This is a great location if you want to be near all the restaurants and the great downtown shopping. You have Nordstrom's steps away and a lot of great bars and restaurants (Tasty and Alder was our favorite restaurant!)… Can't beat that Nordie's is steps away and NO SALES TAX! The hotel was very nice, the concierge lounge had great... More

The rooms were nice, clean, comfortable and spacious. The only thing I would complain about were the small beds. Two of us had to share a double bed, which was just a bit too small for my liking. The real draw to this hotel is the location of the property. It was walking distance to everything we needed. It's very... More

This hotel is so close to everything important to our Portland visit....Pioneer Square, Streetcar, Max, good shopping and wonderful restaurants. The staff was very helpful, the room & bathroom large and equipped as you'd expect a Marriott to be. Great city & river views from our 19th floor room. Did have breakfast in the hotel & buffet had all the... More

We held a two-day meeting in late June at the Portland Marriott City Center. We had a few folks try to book rooms late and the hotel was full. Brandon at the Marriott worked his magic and secured us three extra rooms and kept them priced at our group rate (even though the deadline had passed). We also held a... More
