Stayed here for two nights due to a special event at the nearby Rose Quarter sporting/entertainment complex. The hotel is a decent value stay and you won't be disappointed if you know what to expect from most Courtyard by Marriot hotels.
I won the hotel stay on a third party bidding site and paid well under 45% of normal rack rate. I found myself in a decent room with a king sized bed. The room was a bit awkwardly laid out though, with the TV to the immediate side of the bed. The bed itself was comfortable enough for a two night stay. One thing that annoyed me was that the fan settings were fairly loud, even on low speed. Having said that, room temperature was pretty consistent. Washroom was decent sized, with normal size tub and toilet. The sink with a tiny counter was outside the washroom and toiletries were by Paul Mitchell. Room was quite clean.
Service was mainly good, with exceptional service in the hotel lounge. Had a quirk with parking. I had paid for self-parking $15/night) for both nights of my stay and on the second night, I found the parkade full. I had to get my car valet parked and was told there would be no additional charge for the service. The attendant was also on the ball enough to ask if I would need my car early in the morning (yes) so that he didn't have it blocked in. However, valet shuts down at 11 p.m. and I had to retrieve my keys from the front desk agent whom didn't inform me that the car wouldn't be brought to the front.
The hotel is fairly centrally located and ideal if you're there an area conference or attending something at the Rose Quarter. Having a vehicle will make things easier at night as there isn't much for amenities in an immediate walking distance. If you're looking for the funky shops and stores that are in downtown Portland, you'll find this hotel a bit further removed than you would like. Driving in downtown Portland and throughout the city was fine with a GPS and it was a better option for me since I had to go to numerous other areas not serviced by the trams.
