This well located hotel is near the hub of the city - many of Portland's attractions are within easy reach by walking or public transportation. Staff were polite and helpful. The room was well laid out and comfortable for our week's stay. There is enough closet and drawer space to unpack into. There is a desk with enough room to... More

Recently redone, this Courtyard is a stylish and comfortable place to sleep and hang while exploring Portland. Great beds, quiet, friendly staff, and both closets and drawers. Two complaints - lighting on oversized bathroom is inadequate and the room safe takes up valuable space in the closet. Minor quibbles with an otherwise great experience.

I went to Portland the first time so I could then fly to Iceland direct from there. Loved Iceland but wish I could have spent a few more days in Portland also. This is a very nice Courtyard in a very good downtown location. Close to all the shopping, the Saturday markets and the multitude of microbreweries.

This one was kind of hard to rate between a 4 or 5. We were there for the Firefighter's stairclimb challenge across the street. We had a problem with our command rig not fitting in their parking lot. However, they allowed us to park it out front and have access to it. Lexie(sp?) was awesome! The staff was wonderful and... More

Been here twice now, picked the hotel the second time completely independent of the first visit 4 years earlier. the hotel has been renovated, rooms look great, nice feeling of privacy and dare I say luxury when speaking if a Courtyard? But yes, that's the feeling. I didn't even realize that my view was an interior view of the roof... More

We have stayed at this Courtyard many times for both business and pleasure, but this will be the last time. We checked in and there was hair all over the bathroom tub and floor.

I stayed here with a friend for three nights. The location was great for sightseeing--walking distance to everything we wanted in downtown Portland, and easy access to highways. The room was clean and comfortable. We had an AAA rate that included free valet parking, which was a great perk. We were in and out of the garage multiple times per... More

When going to a new city to explore, I value location above anything else, and this hotel delivered. Located in downtown Portland, it's walking distance to many restaurants, coffee shops, microbreweries, etc. The room was clean and was maintained very well during the 5 days we were there. There was a safe deposit box, mini refrigerator, and the bathroom was... More

Great hotel, very clean. The staff was great, very accommodating as I had several changes to my reservation over my stay here and they were able to make it happen with no issues. I thought it was a good location, close to the waterfront and many nice restaurants and bars. I would stay again.

This Courtyard is probably the best of the chain I've stayed in. The reception room decoration is modern and just a tad plasticky (as in all Courtyards), but the rest of the hotel is exuberant in charm. The rooms are spacious and clean. The restaurant is great, and in my opinion is the game changer for this hotel. Compared to... More
