It's downtown or in Center City, so it's in a GREAT location. Shopping, eating, and everything I needed to do and experience was in walking distance. I stayed for two nights, and instead of coming down to the normal Courtyard breakfast, I was a $15 dollar voucher for each paid night to use at the restaurant attached to the property...... More

We had a large group (approximately 125 guests) attending a wedding in the hotel. Not only was the wedding itself a fabulous success, the venue and food was wonderful!! Every associate in the hotel went out of thier way to ensure we were accomodated. The rooms were comfortable, stylish and especially important to me, QUIET. It was a great location... More

Stayed here for three nights. Our room was quiet and clean which ranks as top priority in my book. Staff at the front desk were friendly and check in was quick and efficient. One of the valet guys didn't want to call a cab for me and said I could do it myself, so that was unhelpful. I also didn't... More

The rooms were fine, 3 star, nothing real special, but clean, front desk very personal able, no issues....great location!!! There was a wedding there, that night, they pretty much had the whole hotel....no problems, until 12:30 am in a few drunks came home, it was over in 5 minutes, can't blame a wedding party, for having a good time!!

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 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
