Great Trip

We definitely enjoyed our stay in Portland, although the weather was pitiful as usual. As far as the hotel itself the only complaint we have is it's extremely hard to find due to improper lighting and no visible signage until you are past the front entrance. Other than that it's a beautiful hotel that offers a very competitive rate in comparison to other local hotels in the area.

Loved it

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights while exploring downtown Portland. It was an easy walk to anywhwere we wanted to go! Food trucks were around the corner, the room was small, but wouldn't expect anything bigger in a downtown hotel. We had a great time and a great view from the 15th floor. The staff was friendly and we would def come back here!

Great location

We stayed here for a weekend visit with our son, who lives downtown. It was such a convenient location to everything we wanted to see and do. The only drawback is that parking is expensive, but we didn't have to use it, so that wasn't an issue. The most important quality is that the room was quiet and comfortable.

Little Bird restaurant, just around the corner on 6th, is a lovely location with great staff and delicious food - not inexpensive but high quality for a special meal with great tastes.

Overnight getaway

Attended a concert at Moda Center near downtown Portland, Courtyard by Marriott had the perfect location and because of a positive prior experience there it was a no brainer. Located a few blocks from multiple transit options getting around is easy. The room was simple, clean and comfortable, the king bed just right, the bathroom modern and clean. The staff were all friendly and helpful, including valet, though the price to park like many of the downtown Portland hotels is ridiculously expensive. Had both dinner and breakfast at the restaurant on site and again the staff were friendly and the food very good. For overall value this hotel is a very good choice.

The transit train picks up a block away, definitely the easy way to get around to many areas of Portland.

Clean, but not worth the price

Room was very average, one King bed and not very spacious. The mini fridge was loud and the motor made noises throughout the night. The king bed had a sag to it. Bedside clock did not work. For the price per night, my expectations are higher.
