This was my first time at the Marriott Courtyard downtown. It felt more like a full service Marriott than a Courtyard. This hotel has everything you need and is in a great location to shopping, restaurants and night life. The restaurant nextdoor has a great breakfast menu.

We brought our bicycles for this trip and it was very easy to get across the bridge from the hotel in order to explore some new neighborhoods. Staff was very accommodating in accompanying us to access our bikes from the safe storage area in the garage. Nice modern decor in room, comfortable bed and large shower; it definitely does not feel like a typical chain hotel. An easy walk at night to some fun bars and restaurants.

We stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott Portland City Center for two nights in October, 2012. It was our first time in Portland, and staying at this central location made it easy to get acquainted with the city on foot. The receptionist at the hotel was very friendly and immediately got out a map and started to suggest things for us to do and see while in town. The check-in itself was very quick, and the room was great: very spacious, with all the amenities we could ask for (large flat-screen TV, fridge, coffee maker, iron and ironing board, free wi-fi). The bathroom was also spacious and sparkling clean, stocked with high-class toiletries and lots of fluffy towels. The king-sized bed was very comfortable. The room was also very quiet; we heard absolutely nothing from adjoining rooms or from people in the hallway. We were also not bothered by outside noise, even though we were not on a very high floor. We had breakfast in the restaurant on one of the days we were there, and enjoyed it very much. On the day we checked out, we asked to leave our suitcases in the hotel for a few hours, since we were taking the train in the afternoon. The receptionist immediately took our luggage to the luggage room, with a smile. When we came back later, we asked if we could sit for a while in the lobby until it was time for us to leave, and again - no problem, and everything was taken care of with a smile. We walked to the Amtrak station from the hotel, which was very convenient.
All in all, we were very satisfied with the Couryard by Marriott and would recommend it to anyone wishing to visit Portland.

This hotel was in a good location in downtown Portland. Within walking distance to the Pearl District and just a few blocks from Voo Doo Donuts. The rooms were clean and large for this type of hotel. The beds had very nice mattresses and the linens were newer. Shampoo/Conditioner was Paul Mitchell ... a nice change from the traditional Marriott shampoos. The Lobby was well appointed. There was a small convenience store style area for buying basic beverages and snacks in the lobby. A restaurant was adjacent to the hotel lobby. The workout facility was quite large for a traditional Courtyard. Plenty of newer cardio equipment, weights and large space with windows. We had a room with two beds and they were Queen sized vs. full, which was since there were three of us in the room.

Room Tip: Our room was on an upper floor and it was very quiet.

Don't be discouraged by my 4 stars instead of 5, it has to be incredible for me to rate that. This being said, I really like this hotel; even though we live nearby we still come into town every now and then and usually stay here. We had a corner room this time, which was quite spacious, nice views, big bath, good amenities. The rooms all have refrigerators, which I really like, hi-def big screen TV's and free internet, a big bonus. They are also very environmentally conscious with recycling bins and biodegradable products.

My only down side comments are pretty much the same as last time; $30 to park your car for the night even when you're a guest and the fact that even though the rooms are made for two, they give you only one packet of coffee. Come on people, this is a really minor expense in terms of your other costs; if there's two people in the room, you give two cups, provide two coffees!

Room Tip: Lots of local attractions all around this hotel. Be sure to visit Portland City Grill across the st...

Thank you for the nice review. I am pleased that you liked our hotel enough to continue to stay with us. The corner rooms are great and I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. I will make sure to share this review with our housekeeping department. There should be enough coffee for two people in each room. See you next time.

I have stayed at this hotel several times now for business, and I am booked here for my upcoming trip in late November. I continue to stay here due to it's convenient location, more modern feel, and large fitness center. I have previously booked at Hotel Lucia and the Westin, with both being nice hotels, but the Courtyard has the edge.
