This hotel is in a great location in downtown Portland. The valet parking is $37/day, however there is a parking garage in the next block that charges a maximum of $20 weekdays and $11 weekend nights--including over night.
We didn't use the restaurant or gym, but the rooms were great.

What an excellent review! I am pleased you enjoyed our hotel’s amazing location and our spectacular rooms. Both our restaurant and fitness center often receive high compliments and I hope you are able to enjoy these amenities on your next visit. Summer is coming and downtown Portland comes alive with concerts and other outdoor events such as Pioneer Square’s Movies in the Square or “Flicks on the bricks”. Starting July 25th Pioneer Courthouse Square shows free movies in the evenings. There will be so many more activates to choose from as well and we hope to welcome you back. Thank you once again!

Lets face it, the hotel choices in Portland are generally quite poor. I've stayed at many of them and have come to expect a general low level of appeal. This is one of the better ones, for sure. First off the location is great! Walkable to anything downtown. The staff was wonderful including going the extra mile to find me a room of my liking. The concierge staff is some of the best I have encountered in 20 years of Marriott stays! The gym was decent but very busy at 6am! I'd stay again, for sure!

Room Tip: Top floor is 20. The rooms are decent size. Try and get one above floor 14 or so. Also the ones f...

The location of this Marriott is excellent. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable of the local area and what it has to offer. The Hotel, it is just an Average Marriott and I am a Marriott fan. If you are looking for a great location and service, this is it.

We stayed at the Marriott Portland City Center for a couple of nights while visiting our daughter during spring break. We really enjoyed the fantastic location. Smack dab in the middle of downtown with all the great shopping and restaurants. We didn't eat at the hotel as there were great restaurants within walking distance. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Rooms are relatively small as well as the beds. Parking though was quite pricey. We opted to park at the parking garage around the corner that was considerable less. Highly recommend this property if you are looking for a downtown location.

Room Tip: Higher floors, corner rooms have a good view.

Thank you for all the kind words. I am so glad your visit with your daughter went well. I noticed your comment regarding the bed size and would like to inform you that we do have king bedded rooms available if you prefer this accommodation on your next visit. Just let the Front Desk know how we may best exceed your expectations. Again, thank you for such a great review and we hope to see you soon.

We haven't stayed at this particular Marriott before, but will definitely return because of the excellent customer service. My birthday was on Sunday, so we booked a package deal for the prior Saturday night (April 5th) that included a Concierge level (high floor and skyline view) king room, free parking, and breakfast the next morning. Upon check-in we were welcomed by a very friendly valet, and two more smiling faces at the front desk. We left our room for about 20 minutes to grab something to eat at the nearby food carts. When we returned, I was very surprised to find a lovely champagne, cheese, and fruit tray along with a birthday card signed by the staff! What a way to make a guest feel special!! Thank-you for helping me celebrate my birthday!

I was here for the George Straight concert. The location is excellent! Within walking distance to everything! Before we went out, we stopped at the bar. Joel is so friendly and knew exactly what to make us! I'll definitely be back again.

Our hotel stay was overall enjoyable. The breakfast in the hotel restaurant was outstanding as was the service in the restaurant. The valet customer service was also exceptional. One negative about our stay was the woman that checked us in. While she was finding a room for us she stated not once, but three times "with your advanced discount rate". When we arrived in our room we had a view of the equipment on a roof that was a bit lower then our windows. I understand not every room has a view, but I wouldn't have thought it was intentional if she hadn't mentioned my advance discount rate three times.

Room Tip: Don't buy the advanced discount rate
