Staying at a hotel in the city center was an experience. It was close to a lot of things. The hotel staff was knowledgable about the area. They made an excellent dinner suggestion. Hotel staff was warm and inviting. The room was clean and spacious. When we were ready to leave, the valet asked if we needed directions. I have... More

The Courtyard isn't anything fancy, but it's clean... the staff is friendly and helpful... and it's located within walking distance of practically everything downtown. Just 4 or 5 blocks from the light rail, it's also easy to reach from the airport. My room was bright and well-kept, and everything worked. Even better, this is a LEED certified hotel, so it's...

I was very pleased with the room which was quiet, clean and spacious. The restaurant downstairs was convenient and the food was good. The biggest standout was the staff who were all very friendly and attentive. The location right next to the rail and bus lines was very convenient.

I spent a week on a business trip and I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. My expectations were set by previous stays at downtown Courtyards...serviceable, clean, but nothing special. This Courtyard was amazingly different. It had a definite boutique feeling to it. The decor had a very fresh vibe without jumping head first into hipster chic. The room was... More

My colleagues and I tend to travel every week for work and when we first booked the Courtyard Marriot, we thought it would be the typical basics of other Courtyard Marriotts. However, this hotel is well located, extremely clean, comfortable, good gym and fantastic service. By my second visit, they knew my name before I even said hello. As business... More

Arrived off the MAX from the airport and the hotel was easy to find. We stayed on the 4th floor and our room was very comfortable. The hotel was centrally located and easy to access all of the awesome Portland sights and sounds. Close to Powell's Bookstore, Voodoo Donuts, great food trucks and the Portland Saturday Market.

Easy to find, right off the MAX from the airport. Nice room, maybe a little small but this is a "city" hotel. Walking distance to Powell's Bookstore, a lot of retail, restaurants, and Voodoo Donuts, although we didn't stand in the ridiculously long line. Staff was very friendly and helpful, housekeeping was prompt, hotel was quiet, attached to the property... More

To be fair we only stayed one night but would have been nice if they had a indoor pool or hot tub to relax in. The rooms were very nice but the hallways stunk like bad body odor. There is no parking only valet for $30 but other than that it was like a Courtyard like Ive never seen. I... More
