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 are already planning on making our reservation for next year's Oregon Brewers Festival. This place was just 5 blocks away. Terrific location. It was walking distance to shopping, Pioneer Courthouse Square, Voodoo Doughnuts, etc. The rooms are large and quiet. The service was friendly and they were able to get us into our room early, which was awesome!! The... 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

We arrived for the weekend of STP race. Although the hotel was very busy with people coming and going and weddings, the staff was nothing but happy and friendly. We were promptly met by the valet service - I REALLY appreciated not having to negotiate off-site downtown parking in a city I'm unfamiliar with, so I personally think it's GENIUS... More

We were in Portland from NJ for a quick weekend and stayed at the Courtyard in city center. The hotel, as all Marriott owned properties, was clean and friendly. The hotel had an excellent city center location and in walking distances of restaurants and food trucks! Perfect location! Breakfast is served but we preferred out of hotel breakfasts!

I had requested a high floor room with a view and was given exactly what I requested. The hotel is within walking distance of pretty much everything in downtown and there is an efficient rail/tram service which runs throughout the city if you need to travel a bit further out. The Wi-Fi in this hotel is awful, it took several... More

Great location in walking distance to all kinds of things: Saturday Market, Powell Books, Deschutes Brewery, Pioneer Square, the Lan Su Chinese Garden, the waterfront, and great shopping and restaurants. Comfortable bed, good shower, convenient configuration of the room, and decent wifi. Parking is pricey - $35/day for unlimited valet, but the valets were great - friendly and very quick.... More

As a frequent Marriott visitor, I have to say this Courtyard took me by surprise! The service was phenomenal. They remembered every little detail right down to a corkscrew. The views from our corner King room were extraordinary!! I've stayed at every Marriott in the city of Portland, and this one is the creme of the crop.
