I've stayed in other Portland hotels but this is by far my favourite. Provided the price stays competitive, I will definitely stay here again (for example, Courtyard was much more comfortable than the far-more-expensive Lucia a block away).

I stayed for over a week, in more than one room. Their rooms are consistently good and their front desk staff are excellent -- friendly and helpful. Digitally controlled heating/cooling works great, unlike other hotels I've seen. The location is excellent and there are tons of food trucks nearby.

They also have coin-operated laundry facilities and an excellent gym.

Warning: there is construction across the street. Also be sure to compare prices to competitors as I've seen a huge swing in prices over one month.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from construction. The construction across the street can happen at odd...

This is one of the best locations to stay in Portland City Center. It is a short walk to almost everywhere you want to go. There is really nothing bad I can say about the rooms as it is a newer hotel. The restaurant on the bottom (Original) is a really good option for breakfast. Only thing that would be nice is if the internet could last longer than just 1 day and better fitness bikes (love the medicine ball option!). All and all I wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting downtown Portland.

The hotel is centrally located in downtown. The waterfront is a few blocks to the east, Pearl District is a few blocks to the northwest, Old Town/Chinatown is a few blocks to the northeast and pioneer square is 1.5 blocks to the south. My friends and I checked- in at 1:00 AM in the morning. The staff was very courteous and checked us in quickly. We were placed on the 16th floor next to the ice dispenser and vending machine. We did not hear the machines next door, however, our room had the adjoining door to the next one and we could hear our neighbors conversations nice and clear at 2:00 AM. The room was clean and spacious. The beds however were not as comfortable. There was a little dip from occupants sleeping in the middle. They offer a hard and soft pillow. I had a chance to use the hotel gym. They had a few treadmills, elliptical, set of weights up to 50lbs, chest/back/legs machines. The valet staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The cost was of parking was $34 a night. It was a little bit on the high end but it gave me peace of mind that my car was taken care of. We used the car to see the waterfalls along the Columbia River, Washington Park and a few highly recommended restaurants.

Overall, I was impressed by the location of this hotel and I would come back in the future.

As is generally true of Marriott hotels, this hotel is clean and well run. The polite and friendly young man at reception made a great first impression. I got a corner room with floor to ceiling windows. Even the bathroom had a big window. I loved all the light. I did not however find the city view very attractive and did not like all the street noise. The windows cannot be opened but given all the street noise maybe it is just as well.

I am tired of the unimaginative sameness of Marriott hotels. I expected this one to be different. The hallway was good but the decor of the room itself was uninspiring. Suprisingly the layout of the room did not take maximum benefit of the space.

The bed was super comfortable and it was great to have a little frig in the room. The computer in the lobby that was all set up to print bording passes was great.

This is hotel is in a central location with super access to public transportation. Public transportation in Portland is inexpensive and great. As others have said - the food trucks ('food court') near the hotel have great food. Turn right as you go out the front door and you will find them. If you are there on Saturday continue on down to the river and you will find the Saturday market - an outdoor arts and crafts fair with food and music. You can also walk to the Chinese garden which is very beautiful.

This hotel does not have a pool or any outdoor space. If they ever put in a roof garden with views of Mount Hood I will go back :-)

Thank you for the review. A roof top garden would be amazing. We do have a small courtyard in the center of the building that allows for fresh air and sunshine and a space to get away from the busy downtown environment. I hope you get the chance to come back to our property soon.

We loved this hotel. Not too expensive. Nice staff. Rooms were big and beds comfy. There are fabulous food trucks right around the corner. We had dinner at Little Bird also right around the corner. We walked to Powell's bookstore. When we are back in Portland we will stay here again.

Room Tip: Parking is expensive. $30 per day. But it is convenient.

We got a great deal on our room here and it was wonderful. The cleaning staff was great, as well as the frontdesk and valet. Parking in $30 a night though, which is a tad expensive depending on what you are doing in the city. It worked well for us because it was snowing and we could just leave the car covered the whole trip.

The wifi is free and fast. However, the restaurant downstairs is not great. Their cocktails are delicious, but the food is not worth your time... you are in Portland after all!

Really close to a lot of touristy shops including voodoo donuts.

Room Tip: Ask for extra pillows and a higher room. Face south if you can, east points right into an office bu...
