“solid choice, great location in downtown”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

This Courtyard Marriott is in a great downtown location, walking distance to such essential Portland places like Voodoo Donuts and Courier Coffee, as well as the Broadway shopping district. The hotel feels new and clean, the staff is very friendly and efficient. My room was spotless, very comfortable and quiet. Can't go wrong with staying here and as a matter of fact, I will be back.

Staying @ the Courtyard Portland City Center is a treat and a bargain. The hotel is immaculate.
The staff is always available and incredibly helpful. The food's delicious. AND you can walk to Powell's Bookstore.
I'll stay here again soon.

My daughter & I recently stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott Portland City Center. We were impressed by the hotel's very convenient, central location and by the cleanliness of the hotel and rooms. Absolutely spotless! The staff was friendly, and the central location made it easy to walk to many attractions, such as Saturday Market, Pioneer Square, VooDoo Donuts and Powell's Book Store. The hotel offers complimentary high-speed Internet in guest rooms, an on-site fitness center and even a very convenient mini-convenience store in the lobby, selling toilletries and snacks. Right around the corner is the location of Portland's famous food trucks offering delicious and unusual snacks or lunch. The on-site restaurant, The Original, serves delicious food (we had breakfast 2x) and has a trendy bar where we enjoyed a drink with friends. Next trip to Portland, I definitely plan to stay here again.

Check in was efficient, room was nice and clean to typical marriott standards.

Hotel gym on the 3rd floor was much better than most and the location is outstanding, close to many thing as well as the light rail. Quality of hotel is actually much better than the full marriott down the street.

Only downside is the connected restaurant, a nearly 24 hour diner. Food there was well below average and overpriced. Not expecting great things, but an all night diner should at least be able to cook eggs.

Thank you for your review. Overall sounds like you had a great stay with us. Sorry, our restaurant did not meet your expectations. It is not a norm for us. Our restuarant is a favorite of most our guest and is a local favorite as well. I passed your comments onto the chef to ensure the quality standards are being met. We hope to see you again.

We were in town for a romantic weekend and enjoyed the location and room. It was easy to get there by taking the Max Light Rail from the airport. We stayed on the top floor and it was everything we expected and more from a Courtyard. We will stay here again on the next trip to Portland.

We booked this hotel for our annual Easter trip to Portland for the Spring Beer and Wine Festival which is held at the Oregon Convention Centre. We normally stay in the convention centre district but this year we wanted to stay downtown so we made a bid on Priceline.com and got the Courtyard Marriott City Centre. We loved this hotel. In addition to a great location downtown, the rooms were spacious, bed comfortable and big bathroom with an enormous walk-in shower. The hotel is right on the MAX line which means a short ride to the convention centre. Since the weather was warm and sunny, we walked to the convention centre which took 20 minutes. The hotel was also centrally located for our downtown pub crawl, close to all the best brew-pubs downtown and the Pearl district. The restaurant was handy with good food and reasonably priced.

This hotel is in a great location and you can walk to pretty much anything downtown. The room looked fairly new and was nice and clean. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful, they even remembered our names. Overall a nice place to stay if you don't want to spend too much.
