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.

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.

Costal Starlight to Portland

I have taken Amtrak two times to Portland. Once via the northern route through Glacier National and this time on the Coast Starlight from LA. (http://www.amtrak.com/coast-starlight-train). Great trips to a great town. The Marriot Portland City Center is right in the middle of the action. Easy walk to all of the downtown attractions such as the Lan Su Chinese Garden right around the corner, Pioneer Courthouse Square and associated shopping, and easy light rail and bus to Portland Japanese Garden, and dinner at places like Andina's in the Pearl district. Great location and value.

Weekend away with my wife

This hotel was fabulous. the staff was very friendly and efficient. I like that I can text the valet that I want my car ans he has it all ready for me. The room was beautiful. The location was right in the heart of the city, just a short walk from the Pearl District, waterfront, and Chinatown.

Clyde's Common has a great bar. The bartender is a real artist when it comes to the art of making unique cocktails. The barrel aged cocklails are ownderful.

We had a great experience with the staff, from the first meeting at the curb to the checkout; they were knowledgeable about the area and were very helpful getting us to the places we had to see. Location was awesome, walking distance to just about everything downtown! Room was very relaxing.

Excellent location and very comfortable

This was our first trip to Portland and we were happy to find that our research paid off. The location could not have been better, and our top-floor room was so quiet that we never heard anyone else, even though the hotel was booked. The rooms were always very clean, and the beds were so comfortable that we had a hard time getting up. The only slight complaint was that we didn't always get good recommendations on restaurants.

Great first stay/trip to Portland Oregon

First trip to Portland Oregon was great. Hotel was clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Room larger than expected and very quiet at night. Would stay at this hotel again if visiting Portland in the future.
