The location of the hotel was really great (very centric, safe to walk around at night, and less than a block from public transportation), but the staff and hotel itself wasn't very good. We had a fridge that buzzed horribly, plus some other noise that didn't come from the room itself but from another room or the corridors. We told... More

The hotel is located in a fantastic location. You can pretty much walk anywhere you want to go in Portland from here. There's even a small convenience store 3 minutes away. My room was on the 7th floor. I had a view of the mechanicals of the building but I wasn't staying there for the view! My only contact with... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Marriott for our anniversary. When I mentioned that it was our anniversary, Lindsey, at guest services immediately upgraded our room. When we mentioned where we planned to eat for the day/evening, she took time to call each restaurant and let them know it was our anniversary. We got such special treatment at... More

Location was quite convenient as the hotel had proximity to the food carts and shopping area. There were two coffee places next to the hotel for your java fix and a mini mart around the corner for additional drinks and snacks. Room needs updating but the corner room was reasonably sized for a family of 3, Service of the staff... More

The room was small, but clean and comfortable. The location was very convenient for us - near the microbreweries and lots of restaurants. Parking was available (even for my motorcycle). Easy access to highways and bridges was also a convenience to my wife and I. I'd stay there again.

We very much enjoyed our stay here over this past weekend. The hotel itself is very clean and the staff were polite and helpful. The Courtyard also has a pretty killer gym compared to what I'm used to. Overall, I would definitely stay again.

This was my first visit to Portland and the first night was spent at the Courtyard. Since I am new to the city had the valet park the car. The valet was efficient and got the car checked in right away. I liked the multiple options of retrieving the car from the traditional phone call to texting the valet. The... More

The hotel was just fine. The room, while not large, was certainly big enough and well appointed. The staff was very friendly and really helpful to new-to-Portland visitors. The restaurant attached to the hotel is excellent! Portland is so easy to navigate on public transit, and this hotel is right on a bus and MAXX lines. Hotel staff again really... More

We started a 2-week vacation in Oregon with 2 nights here, and we were very happy with it, though the restaurant is a bit odd (it is not run by Marriott). The staff were very helpful and the valet parking was very prompt. There are large numbers of homeless people in Portland, and guests should not be surprised to see... More
