“Nice... and getting nicer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

The hotel is in an awesome location, right downtown where the action is. I was there when it was just starting a renovation, but there was nothing to distract from a very pleasant stay. The staff is very accommodating and all the facilities are up to Marriott standards. I can't wait to see the new rooms! I'll be back!

Room Tip: The x10 room is awesome!

Preferred hotel when I'm in Portland. Easy access to everything. Parking is tough and expensive but your downtown so expected. Boutique like hotel for a chain. Concierge lounge is great. We usually ride the train to the city and walk or streetcar everywhere. Weekend rates for a family are a great option.

We decided to do weekend getaway to Portland. I stayed here a few years back, the service hasn't changed. From the valet service, to front desk to housekeeping, the staff is amazing. They really make you feel welcome. We were on the 18th floor, the view was beautiful. The rooms were clean and nice. We took advantage of their package that includes parking, which is worth it. It is central downtown and you can walk anywhere. Breakfast was really good! I would stay here again if I visited Portland.

It says city center and it is. U can walk everywhere there's tons of shopping, restaurants and the train is right there if u want to go out of city center. We took it to the rose garden for game:) the staff here is amazing, and friendly. They even hand wrote a letter seeing if there is anything they could do for us and wishing us a great first day in the city and put it under are door. That shows something for a hotel. They always open doors for u and the bar/ restaurant was great with great service and willing to do anything to please u. Rooms r clean and comfy beds and bedding. We also had a great view of the city and mt in the distance. Price was great also. The elevators also have a security on them so u have to insert card to go up to room which makes u feel very safe. We looked at the nines, westin and others before booking and r glad we choose marriott nicer look, staff, price and location there all close to eachother but price is way better here. I can't find a complaint even if I tryed. Highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: High floor with a view

The staff was great. My wife & I were extremely happy with our stay. Thank you to the restaurant for being very accommodating. The location is great & within walking distance to almost anything you would need. Also, the public transportation is excellent & easy to use.

Room Tip: Higher the floor the better the view.

Recently stayed here while in Portland on business and plan to return for another two weeks next month. The hotel is very nice but what makes it special is the customer service. Every person I encountered was pleasant and helpful. The room was nice, but standard. I look forward to my next visit because the staff was so kind and welcoming.
