“Awesome, modern hotel in the middle of everything!”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

We stayed here this past spring, and we loved it.
The location is excellent: easy walking to all the shopping and restaurants downtown, the Pearl District, Powell's, all the food trucks...

The decor is sleek and hip and modern, the room was well-appointed and comfortable, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

We had an excellent stay, and will happily stay here again.

Stayed April 2011, traveled as a couple

Great location, walking distance to city center or Pearl district. Many restaurants, brewpubs, farmer's market, food trucks. 4 blocks to MAX to airport. 1 block to streetcar. Very clean, possibly recently remodeled. Spent a week here, July 2011.

I chose this particular property because: a) I had to choose a Marriott so we could use hotel points; b) the location sounded great (it was); and c) it was recently renovated, so it looked pretty modern for a Courtyard.

It's less than a block from the Green/Yellow MAX lines, and just a few blocks from the Red/Blue line. Lots of restaurants within walking distance as well as the waterfront area. The staff is friendly, and I found it funny that the bellmen rush to open the door for you...after all, it's a Marriott Courtyard.

The only negative was that the first night when we arrived, they gave us a King room for 3 people and I had to sleep on a roll-away bed. Not what you want to hear when you've just arrived after a long trip and your body thinks it's 3AM. I didn't sleep very well that night on the creaky roll-away. We moved the next day to a room with two Queen beds as we had originally reserved.

Room Tip: It may be a good idea to double-check before arriving that you are getting the number of beds you re...

Thank you for your review! We are glad that you came across us. I am pleased that you enjoyed the service from the staff. We are a full service Courtyard like no other, so we have doorman and valet. I happy that they were doing a great job of opening the door for you. I am sorry for the mix up on you room type the first night. I will use your comments to continually improve upon the guest experience. I am happy to know that they were able to move you the next day.

Hope to see you again soon at our hotel!

I travel to Portland frequently and usually stay at a different Courtyard near work. This trip, I needed to catch an early train to Seattle, so I opted to stay downtown in the Courtyard City Center. This Courtyard was an incredible surprise - much nicer than your standard Courtyard! I always request a room on a high floor, and was given a corner room with a nice view of downtown. What I really appreciated was how quiet the room was - even though I was there the same weekend as the rose festival parade, I could not hear a peer outside the hotel, or even in the hotel. I also loved how convenient it was to catch the lightrail to the train station - literally just a few steps from the hotel. I had dinner in the attached restaurant - it was fine, but by Portland standards, just OK - there are other places close by that are much better. You do have to pay for valet parking here, since there really isn't any street parking, but the valet service was EXCELLENT! The valet folks were exceptionally helpful in terms of giving me directions, and they always brought my car quickly, so using Valet wasn't the hassle that it sometimes is. If you don't have a car, it would be very convenient to stay here, however, and easy to get to from the airport by light rail. The only very minor negative was that the room was somewhat smaller than at other Courtyards, but that is to be expected in a city hotel. I would definitely stay here again, and, in fact, I am doing so this month, but this time for pleasure, not business!

Room Tip: ask for a room on a high floor

Agree with the previous couple of reviews...we had similar experience. We had a corner room w/king...really amazing City and waterfront views - try to get these rooms if you can.

Not a 5 star room/amenities but everything you need. if you want to be pampered, the Hotel Monaco is always a great choice (and we generally stay there) but this hotel offers a better price point and the location is actually a little closer to the Pearl District and Satruday Mkt/waterfront (always something going on there...we lucked out to pick Beer Fest weekend - woohoo!)

Room Tip: corner room a must for great views
