“Great Location and a Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

I spent a week on a business trip and I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. My expectations were set by previous stays at downtown Courtyards...serviceable, clean, but nothing special. This Courtyard was amazingly different. It had a definite boutique feeling to it. The decor had a very fresh vibe without jumping head first into hipster chic. The room was very comfortable and the service was top notch. The front desk and valet staff went out of their way to make sure everything was going well. Little things like opening the door when you walk up seems a little trite, but it really extends the message that they care about your experience. The "diner" off the lobby was another pleasant surprise. The Original dinerent had a varied menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food was excellent and inventive, The wait staff did a great job.

The location is very convenient to the MAX train and all that downtown has to offer. Close proximity to a multitude of food trucks and restaurants really enhance the experience. I highly recommend this hotel.

My colleagues and I tend to travel every week for work and when we first booked the Courtyard Marriot, we thought it would be the typical basics of other Courtyard Marriotts. However, this hotel is well located, extremely clean, comfortable, good gym and fantastic service. By my second visit, they knew my name before I even said hello. As business travelers, it is important to have good service and also friendly staff. They tend to go the extra mile to assist us when we run into challenges with reservations and / or rates. They make staying here very easy and I am surprised that this hotel is under the courtyard brand given the amenities and quality. Highly recommended!!!!

Great hotel, great staff and great location - able to walk to all the downtown attractions, and a really easy trip to the airport on MAX. The staff were really friendly and welcoming, always happy to help, give advice and assist. The room was a good size, excellent bed, clean and easy to stay in. Would stay again!
Ps Paul Mitchell shampoos were a real bonus!

Arrived off the MAX from the airport and the hotel was easy to find. We stayed on the 4th floor and our room was very comfortable. The hotel was centrally located and easy to access all of the awesome Portland sights and sounds. Close to Powell's Bookstore, Voodoo Donuts, great food trucks and the Portland Saturday Market.

My husband and I walked all over the city rather than renting a car, so we were able to go to the Portland State Farmer's Market, Southeast Portland, Chinese Garden, you name it!

The staff was super friendly and always able to help recommend places to go and eat, etc.

Easy to find, right off the MAX from the airport. Nice room, maybe a little small but this is a "city" hotel. Walking distance to Powell's Bookstore, a lot of retail, restaurants, and Voodoo Donuts, although we didn't stand in the ridiculously long line.
Staff was very friendly and helpful, housekeeping was prompt, hotel was quiet, attached to the property is a restaurant called The Original. Kind of a nicer diner, we had breakfast, it was good and not too spendy.

I wouldn't spend a lot of time in the city, get out and explore the neighborhoods.... Ton of great restaurants that are not catering to business people.

To be fair we only stayed one night but would have been nice if they had a indoor pool or hot tub to relax in. The rooms were very nice but the hallways stunk like bad body odor. There is no parking only valet for $30 but other than that it was like a Courtyard like Ive never seen. I loved the decor and would have given it 5 stars if not for the above exceptions.
