This is my go-to hotel in Portland for business trips. The rooms are clean, comfortable & stylish (PNW photography hangs over the bed) with great views of downtown & the west hills. The staff is friendly, the lobby is warm & inviting, and it's located walking distance to lots of great food carts, shopping, coffee, and public transportation.

If you're a tourist, I think this is the best area of Portland to stay in. You can walk to the riverfront and many attractions. It's especially nice on the weekends. This hotel was convenient and had a friendly front desk and reasonable rates. Parking was $35 a night, but you could park for less at nearby downtown garages. My... More

Solid Hotel in a good location that allows access to the city and to the areas around Portland. Room was on the small side but clean and well appointed. Typical Marriott set up. Front desk was friendly and helpful. Valet guys were great. The workout facility was better than average and was well kept.

Stayed here on a business trip. It had everything I needed, was in walking distance of a lot of attractions. The room wasn't too bad, but it wasn't great. I stayed in two rooms. The first had a very noisy A/C unit that wasn't ideal. The second was nicer (2 beds in that one). The restaurant has an amazing breakfast!

Went to Oregon for a wedding which was on Mother's Day, so I arranged for all 5 girls to meet up with our elderly mother. We stayed at the Marriott, and am so delighted.

What a great property! Upscale for a Marriott Courtyard. The staff was very helpful and the location was super convenient for work downtown. The room was clean and modern. The bathroom was nice and large. Thanks Marriott!

Not spectacular but the room and furnishings were comfortable and a good value when we stayed. Not my first choice at the time but many hotels were sold out. Front desk staff was nice. We had a great time visiting the city.

This was our second trip to Portland. Two years ago, we splurged and stayed at a lovely boutique hotel. This time we just needed a place to sleep for two nights, and had a budget for it. So we were expecting simply furnished rooms, only basic amenities, rowdy & homely people in the lobby, no breakfast, check, check, check. But... More

Room was nice but very small, website said and showed there was a pool, total lie, even ran into other people dressed in swim attire when we went to look for the pool!

I would have given less stars but I need to be fair. I just want to explain that tI gave 3 stars because it was very clean. but that's as far as it goes. Ok, so I did purchase through Priceline, but it was very close to the regular nightly rate. I was given a room with a mere 3... More
