“Trendy rooms!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2011

I have mostly great things to say about this place. The rooms are super trendy and they have a New York City mixed with Rome vibe. Bathrooms are cool too with modern grey & purple hues. Staff is super friendly and the rooms are spotless. The only downside(s) are the beds just have 1 thin top sheet (no down comforters) and the towels are pretty thin. But we got our room for $100/night so I think that's a good. You're in walking distance to numerous Starbucks, McMenamins, and Red Star Tavern which is awesome. I saw parking was $29/night valet and it's a super small lot, the but the hotel pointed out a $6/day parking lot just down the street (but you have to wake up at 7am to repay for each day). I was appreciative of that.

Room Tip: Our room & our friends room did not have a view...so if you could get one that'd be great...

Great location and room. I would stay again. The market in the lobby is way over priced, so not sure what the point id of having it. Nice that there is a restaurant on site, but would have been better if servers were friendlier. Awesome that the Max Train was right there except that no one gave us info on it. We spent money on taxis that ended up taking a longer time than the train. Glad we figured it out on our own. Motel was clean and modern which was appreciated.

We stayed for a week after finding a great deal on Travel Portland website. We got a reduced rate, free valet parking ( otherwise $29 a night) free cooked to order breakfast in restaurant and a very quiet room as requested. All of the staff was very friendly, courteous, helpful. The beds were great, the shower the best we've ever had and would stay here again without question.
The only complaint is that some food was not hot in the restaurant.

We chose to stay at this hotel after reading TripAdvisor and we are glad we did. We arrived 'without' reservations, asked to stay for 3nights and were told that was do-able - great! The check-in clerk also told us we would get a "great room". The room was not so great - small - but definitely clean and comfortable. By the end of the 3rd 'sleep' we were pretty fed up; with A/C noise as it switched on & off ALL night long; with the closed-in feeling of the space.
We would recommend this hotel to business types; not sure how people with children would like it (though we did see some coming and going).

Thank you for your review. I apologize for the noisy heating/ AC, that is not a norm for us. We do have a few rooms that are smaller than normal, but most are a nice size and very comfortable. I happy to know that you would recommend us.

Hopefully we will see you next time.

Thanks,

A very new "boutique style" Courtyard Marriott centrally located in downtown Portland within walking distance of the city center and to the funky Pearl district. Service was friendly and efficient. Rooms are spacious and smartly decorated. Ours was quiet. Free wi-fi. Fitness center but no pool. The adjoining "Original" restaurant was fantastic for breakfast ... two of the best hotel breakfasts I have had in years. This hotel is an exceptionally good value if you get a package that includes breakfast and parking (try travelportland.com).

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms may be quieter as there are streetcars on one side of the hotel.

Was recently in Portland for a conference and this was the conference hotel. Great conference room pricing, but I expected run of the mill, sterotypical hotel accommodations. Was I pleasantly surprised!

The hotel is a boutique style hotel with an AMAZING location! The lobby is trendy and upscale, the service upon check-in and throughout my stay was fabulous and the room was more than I expected. Aside from being large it was trendy, upscale, comfortable, with excellent sheets and pillows. Computer access was free and easy to obtain in-room.

The restaurant attached to the hotel is a great meeting place for conference attendees and from what I saw locals. Daily Happy Hour that was always busy and well priced. I did not have a meal there but everything I saw come out of the kitchen looked delicious and the people I chatted to had no complaints.

Location can't be beat!!! Walking distance to almost all attractions and very close to the transit system for going to venues further away.

I can't wait to go back to a great city and a great hotel!!

Great hotel with clean, minimalistic design. Rooms modern and spacey. Breakfast not included, but no worries. DO NOT MISS THE CHILAQUILES! I have been traveling for yrs and seen & had all kinds of breakfast, but to put it simple. FANTASTIC!
