Love this Courtyard. Great location and rooms are very quiet and clean. Light rail is steps away and the restaurant in the hotel, "the Original" is a favorite of mine while in Portland. Here 4-5 times a year and always stay at this property.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. I arrived an hour before check-in, but they let me check-in. My room was unusual - rather than a rectangular room, it was "bent", but I liked it. The room was a bit stuffy because the very quiet fan only ran when the room was heating or cooling and I'm used to constant...

This hotel has a great location (halfway between Powell's Books and Mother's Bistro, and an easy walk from the Amtrak station). It's a downtown high-rise (nothing Courtyard about it but the name/brand). The room was nice, and despite a downtown location, incredibly quiet. It was reasonably well appointed - nothing special, but just fine, with a comfortable couch and everything...

Alix was neither helpful nor sympathetic when we asked to extend our checkout time past noon. Having stayed here many times before, this will be the last. Customer service has been great in the past, but Alix is a poor ambassador of your product.

I have a travel profile for Marriott which states that I prefer the foam pillows over feather and high floors. This property actually reviews those preferences!!

Hotel is in great location. Rooms are very comfortable. There are also numerious conference rooms on the C level of the hotel. There is a bar and restaurant on the ground floor. Good food. It's one of the most reasonably priced Marriotts in the area.

Stayed in this hotel last weekend. It is in the middle of downtown Portland and the attractions of downtown. I rode the MAX in from the airport and this hotel was just a couple of blocks from that. Inside our hotel room was more spacious than I would expect. I would not necessarily recommend the restaurant downstairs, but there are...
