This hotel was a bit further from the downtown core than expected, but it was actually situated in a lovely area that we would never have seen otherwise. It's a fairly quick and scenic walk to downtown along the riverwalk, or there is a streetcar just outside that only costs $1. The room wasn't fancy but it was spacious, and... More

My husband and I went to check in a few weeks back for one night on a friends and family rate that was booked through a colleague. When we arrived, we were surprised to be asked for a form that was crucial in order for the rate to be honored as we did not have it with us. We were... More

Dear Robyn L, Thank you for taking time to share your comments regarding your recent stay.

Great hotel right on the waterfront. Front desk staff is very helpful, rooms are large and sunny and the hotel is close to the Portland trolley which takes you everywhere in the city. The breakfast provided us with a lot of good choices. This is our third trip to Portland and we love this hotel!

The Internet wifi is maxed beyond capacity. Both the free and paid ($4.95 / day) connections are slow to the point of being unusable. This is a deal breaker for me. The location is good for freeway access and it's nice being right on the river walk. Breakfast is "okay".

Dear farrago510, Thank you for your feedback - we are listening! I have noted your comments and will follow-up with our internet provider. I suspect it may be an issue with a setting on your computer as we exceed Marriott's required bandwidth at our property and our other guests rate our internet speed well above the "average" for Residence Inn's....

My family LOVES this Residence Inn location. We used to stay here for 2 weeks at a time when they first opened - rate increases mean we don't get to stay here as much, but I still love this property. Super clean. Large sunny rooms. Great, central location located by the water manages to feel away from the city while... More

Wonderful site! It was my first time in Portland, and I was there both for business and pleasure. I had to drive to Corvallis during my stay, which was about an hour and a half from Portland. I stayed a few extra days to explore Portland. I had a lovely suite with a view of the river and Mount Hood!... More

We stayed here in the Fourth of July and was a great location for the fireworks. More that it is NOT downtown. It's in a new construction area with lots of construction sites and newer condos. Streets are very desolate and empty especially at night. We were slightly uneasy with kids. View is of a maze of freeways but thankfully... More

It's always nice to stay at a hotel that is dog friendly and has immediate access to grassy areas and walking trails for dogs. Initially I was disappointed with the location of the hotel as I wanted to be closer to the downtown core, but this ended up being exactly what I didn't know I wanted. This hotel is situated...

We stayed at the Residence Inn for a couple of nights before our apartment in the south waterfront area of Portland was ready. It's a convenient location to OHSU, Downtown, and the South Waterfront area. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite to make sure our pets had enough room. There's a grassy area along the waterfront across the street... More

I want to start by saying that Marriott redeemed themselves by our initial bad stay. We arrived at the hotel after our flight and check in was pretty smooth. There was a room ready and we were able to drop our things and head out for the day. We arrived back after 8 pm and tired. We slept only 3... More

Dear mrspaper, Thank you for your comments and for returning again. Your comments regarding the sofa bed linens provide an opportunity for further training with our staff. Typically they try to disturb guests in their room as little as possible to give families privacy but when you call for service you should receive it promptly. We hope to see you... More
