We really enjoyed this hotel. Parking was too pricy at $29. The interior courtyard was a nice surprise and a great place to enjoy wine and relax. Portland is a great walking city and public transportation and biking is terrific. Price is high but worth the value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a bathtub

We stayed for 4 nights at this Courtyard. Kudos all around from our great view room on the 15th floor to the yummy restaurant downstairs. The free internet was great! The laundry facilities were handy for our needs. Oh! And the location for catching the Max was wonderful! We enjoyed our stay very much and were especially pleased with our low room rate. Thanks Courtyard!

We arrived mid week for two nights. We got there a couple of hours before check in and asked if we could just park the car and check in later. The valets (a great group of guys) advised us to try and check in because our room might very well be ready. And it was. Joy! There was a small error with how many breakfast tickets (we got as part of a deal) we were issued - but it was corrected before I even had time to stew about it.

The Original (attached restaurant) was great for breakfast and the hotel is conveniently located to several food cart havens - a real joy to visit and agonize over which one to choose. The front desk staff were great. We were especially impressed with the valets. They were friendly and very helpful with directions and restaurant suggestions (thanks for the Mama Mia tip - it was great).

The room was clean, spacious, and well appointed and the fridge was empty (thankfully) - perfect for storing kid food and drinks. We did hear some street noise from our room - but not much and it certainly didn't result in any sleep disruptions.

The hotel is well located to transit, Powell's (a truly awesome bookstore) and good restaurants. It's also close to Chinatown and the Lan Su Chinese Garden - a beautiful way to spend a couple of hours.

Thanks for a great visit Portland and the Marriott!

The location and value are the best reasons to choose this hotel. The room we had on the 14th floor was away from the elevators, as requested, but was not very comfortable (especially the one chair provided). And the noise made by the HVAC system was amazingly loud. The staff was helpful.

Stayed here for 4 nights back in March. Staff was friendly, rooms very clean and spacious, and had breakfast downstairs which was quite good as well. Workout facilities were nice and allowed me to maintain my fitness routine. Desk staff were happy to provide maps of downtown Portland.

Located right between MAX stops, and close to the Pearl District, this hotel offered a friendly staff, a clean quiet room, and a terrific value for central Portland. I stayed over the Labor Day holiday and received an excellent rate for a room that was dead quiet on the 5th floor. No complaints at all. The central location coupled with easy TriMet access made it a joy to get around without a car. Restaurants, bars, shopping, and the arts were all within walking distance. To get a little farther afield it was easy to jump on the light rail or walk a few blocks to the street car and take a quick run across town. The staff greeted me every time I came back from a walk about town and were knowledgeable about the local area - even small venues well away from the hotel. I'd definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Don't be concered about being across from the elevator - it was suprisingly quiet with no real n...
