We had a terrific stay while visiting Portland. Newly renovated. Probably the nicest Marriot we have stayed at and we have stayed at many. The staff was friendly and check in was easy. The hotel is clean and are following Covid -19 regulations to keep you safe. The location is great to visit downtown Portland. We walked everywhere. Lots of great restaurants nearby. I look forward to our next stay.

Finally ventured out of town, and like much of the northeast, found my way north to Maine. As someone who is cautious about all things related to Covid, I felt like this hotel was very up to standards. Everything was clean. I felt like they were taking all the precautions to ensure everyone's safety. Masks are required in all hotel areas, except your room, of course. The service was excellent. We arrived late and the front desk had everything ready for us to go which got us to our room quickly. The room was spacious and as previously mentioned, very clean. Hotel is modern and updated. Plenty of outlets. We had to request a hair dryer, but it was delivered promptly. They have valet parking, but something we found out is that across the street from the hotel parking is free. Pay attention to which days they clean the streets, but other than that you are good to keep your car there. The location is also great as it is a quick walk to most restaurants and shops.

Stayed at the Courtyard Portland several weeks ago for business. The hotel was conveniently located right on the waterfront near the center of the downtown area. Although valet parking was not available due to covid there was a hotel lot near by. I opted for street parking which is available right in from of the hotel. The hotel was clean and comfortable and would not hesitate to stay again. Just note that the hotel lobby although open for seating the restaurant was closed due to covid. There are several other restaurants and pubs nearby. Only negative was that the rooms do not have safes.

We stayed here Valentine's weekend with a few other couples and it was a great experience! Rooms were very spacious, beds were comfy, bathrooms were very clean and roomy. It's a great location but being the dead of winter, it was pretty cold, so the biggest surprise was the free shuttle. Since downtown Portland is all pretty concentrated, we had the shuttle take us to lunch and then simply called when we needed to get picked up, and did that for pretty much all of our meals. Just make sure you tip after each ride--on one of the rides, we waited to catch the guy on the way back and there was a shift change. We were able to save a bunch on Ubers. Overall, would definitely go back.

We booked the hotel for a one night stay over to attend a wake for a good friend. The hotel staff was friendly, informative and engaging. The hotel is rather new and well furnished. While it is close and walkable to the downtown they offer a shuttle service to and from restaurants and places of interest. If back in the area we will stay there.
