We just returned from a three night stay at the Marriott Residence Inn. We love Portland, especially the Old Port. Lots to see, great places to eat and shop, take the train, or ship out on the mail boat, and on a rainy day, walk through the Portland Art Museum. Most everything is within easy walking distance from the Residence Inn. The room was a studio, very comfortable, complete with a kitchen, no mini fridge here, full size. We liked the opportunity to provide our own meals, brew our own coffee and be able to relax in the living area. This Marriott offers a hot breakfast and happy hour snacks included in your room price. If you did this every day, you would only need to eat out perhaps once a day, or not at all with your own kitchen. The hotel staff was excellent. Yes, we expect friendly staff at all Marriott properties. This front desk was eager to make your stay as exciting as you wanted to make it. The only down side of this hotel is the parking garage is next door, but not connected, so you do have to walk between facilities, up and down stairs or elevators to get to your car. This time of year the price is a bit high, 300-350 per night. This is on par with other hotels in the downtown area. We enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back to take up residence again in downtown Portland.
