I stay at many marriotts and This was not a very pleasant experience and will stay elsewhere when I'm in the area. Issue it with Management/front desk. Room was clean and staff were nice. Free breakfast is marginal.

Staying in downtown Portland is easy. The nicer hotels are all cloistered and conveniently located. I have been to all of them. Residence Inn allows you to bring your furry babies, enjoy the continental breakfasts, and reheat leftovers from all the fine restaurants in the area in those efficient kitchenettes. I would recommend this hotel. Only thing I dislike here... More

Thank you for the great response. Have the pool and fitness center roof top would be a great amenity. The greatest part of having the pool a lobby level is that it allows us to have a larger pool then most downtown hotels and creates easier access to majority of our guest. If we were to ever re-build I will... More

We visited Portland this past weekend as a quick get a way to celebrate my wife's birthday. I selected this location 1) because I like Marriott properties and 2) because I was looking for a little more room in our room. We had the added benefit of top floor with Harbor View. This is a nice location. It is only... More

Stayed here for one night. Nice comfortable bed, quiet room and lots of space. Great location close to lots of good restaurants closeby (duckfat is my favorite)! One weird quirk, computers have no printing capability outside of printing boarding passes.

This Marriott is in a great spot. Nice and close to everything. Within walking distance of ALL the great restaurants and shops. Also all the tours from the pier were right there. The hotel has a shuttle that will take you to town, if walking is a problem.

It's a standard Residence Marriot with complimentary breakfast included. Rooms are nice and big with Morden amenities. Parking is included if you on two wheels or four which just around the corner. Overall I will recommend this place and during summer prices do jump quite considerably from standard rates. Only thing I feel is market place is over priced for... More

The building is shaped like a triangle. Our room was less than 20 feet, directly across from another room, we could see directly into their room, I assume they could watch us too. we had a wall and window to look at. The staff was polite and friendly,

I am sorry to hear that the view you had from your guest suite did not meet your expectations. You are correct, the unique shape of our building does provide a view challenges for a select few of our guest suites. The bonus is that these suites are situated in a way to proved our guest with a larger foot... More

Apparently most rooms were sold out when I reserved this studio for $420 out the door. We always stay at Residence Inns up and down the east coast, so we are pretty familiar with the layouts. This studio was smaller than any other studio that I've stayed in. It was very clean, the kitchen was nicely updated, the lobby was... More
