Stayed here for one night with my son. Rooms are smallish but fine. Nice flat panel screen. Nice bedding. It was really great to walk around downtown. Check-in was very smooth. Room nice and clean. We enjoyed the attached restaurant-diner for breakfast. Cute and creative. However, you're right next to tons of great eats. Check out the many food trucks... More

From the second you get here, this place is awesome. Doormen welcomed us into a beautiful front lobby, where there were people standing at the kiosks with a smile on their face. The person we spoke with was really friendly and accommodating, and even made some small talk about what we were doing in town. We told her we were... More

Was in Portland for a few days on business and stayed at the Marriott Courtyard City Center. Found the location to be perfect, and the staff to be helpful. As my first time in Portland they were very helpful in pointing us to some great local spots. Hotel was clean...no complaints.

The hotel is in a great location, easy access to city center, Pearl District etc. Small but very clean room, nice decoration, very friendly and helpful welcoming. Easy to check in and easy check out. My friend and I also had a dog and that was not an issue at all. In fact it was the only hotel I have... More

The location was perfect for us to explore Portland. Within walking distance we shopped in downtown, walked the riverfront and found great breweries in the Pearl District. I booked three nights with AAA of $139, which included valet parking. I had looked into other Marriott hotels, but this was the best find since we had a rental car. Checking in... More

While I was not looking, someone raised the rates on all sorts of hotels. Proof can be found here, where this Courtyard commands prices of more than $200 a night.(I got a conference rate a little lower, but still.) It's a spotlessly clean facility with reasonably comfortable beds (a little too firm for my taste). It clearly caters to the... More

Stayed here with some friends and was pleasantly surprised. Updated, though fairly generic furnishings, comfortable bed, great location, quick efficient check in. There's an attached restaurant with tasty blood Mary's and good breakfast.

Lovely accommodations, cozy beds (like sleeping on a cloud!!), excellent service - everyone was wearing a smile. The restaurant adjoining the hotel is open at convenient hours and serves wonderful food. You can't lose!

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel, the restaurant inside (I never ate at ) but looked great! The staff makes this hotel! This one gentlemen who is a valet, was very helpful and went the extra mile. Great stay for the price! Seems like a hip property , I recommend it.

Not my first choice in Portland, but it turned out to be a good decision. Centrally located in the city, you have access to many points of interest in Portland. I asked for a higher floor and got the 15th. Thank you! Far away from the street noise, I had the best sleep ever in the city. They have friendly... More
