My girlfriend, dog & myself stayed at the Courtyard this past Easter weekend. We had previously stayed last July long weekend and I gave a 5-star review. I'm glad to say that everything was great once again. Like most reviewers have said, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The front desk staff are always giving polite greetings, the door/valet...

My wife and I stayed over a recent weekend and were very pleased with our stay. We found the staff very helpful (hats off to Dee!) and welcoming. Parking is a bit of a nuisance in Portland but they have valet parking at the hotel which is a bit pricy ($30 per day) but is convenient. We found the downtown...

The location is easy to reach when you arrive in the city and truly walking distance to all of the things you would likely visit. The staff are friendly and helpful. We found the room to be pretty small with a tiny window (we were in a corner room) which probably made it feel even smaller than it was. The...

The location is between 5th and 6th and centrally located to almost anything you will wish to visit in downtown Portland. Near to any of the rapid transit options. Didn't rate it higher as there were some challenges. The hot water took a number of minutes to heat up in both the sink and the shower which can be frustrating....

Except the breakfast at their restaurant, check my review about their "The Original" restaurant. The hotel service is without any issues. Rooms are in very good conditions and I felt everything went perfectly well. In one week of my stay the service has been consistent. Smiles and help always at hand with all the stuff. Any stressful situations, rely on...

Nicely furnished rooms and clean. Beds are comfortable although pillows were a bit too stuffed. We were in room 1114 and had nice view of bridges across the river. Had a nice king bed plus a sitting area with sofa and coffee table. Desk has pull out table for nicer laptop position. Only complaint was the low flow sink faucet....

Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you had a nice stay overall. I am sorry for the low flow water. I shared you review with our engineering team. We are a "LEED Gold" hotel, which has many features to save on the carbon footprint, however, the water shouldn't be as you explained. Thank you for bringing it...

We booked this hotel online unseen. We decided on this place because of the location. We wanted to be in the heart of downtown with easy access to the rail system. This place is spot on. The location is just blocks from Pioneer Square, a shopping mall, and a huge variety of food and drink hot spots. From the moment...

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary weekend. The service was amazing! When we mentioned it was our anniversary, the front desk attendant gave us a top floor room. We had already reserved a corner view room. The valets were great about getting our car when we needed which was so helpful with Portland traffic.

We've stayed in quite a few hotels in the Marriott chain, usually with good experiences. This one definitely offered the least for the cost. Pros: Great location (between downtown and the Pearl district) very comfy king bed, free (although glacially slow) internet in the business alcove (and connection in the rooms), good towels, very clean, and ecology-minded (recycle receptacle in...
