Hotel was very nice, and met the usual and expected Courtyard standards. Staff were very friendly and attentive and the rooms were very nice and uncomfortable. The downtown area, though, was not particularly nice and did not feel particularly secure.

Thank you for the review and the nice comments about our hotel. I am sorry the location did not feel safe for you. Normally, people love or location. It is very safe, but I understand that for some, it may not feel that way. I share our customer comments with the city as a way to let them know how...

The room was quiet, spacious and comfortable. The front desk was so helpful with dining and sights recommendations. You can walk everywhere from this hotel. COULD NOT BE MORE convenient. The light rail is nearby and although we had a car, used that for some remote locations....the sky tram and the test rose garden.

We flew in for the long weekend, arriving at 9am on Saturday. Our greatest fear had been how long we'd have to wait to check in as we had to wake our 3-year-old daughter up for the flight at 4:30am. She was on her last legs. Gaby, who was *amazing* and working the front desk, took our name and number...

I stayed in Portland for a recent get together with friends. This hotel was in the thick of things downtown, so I stayed here. I was able to walk or take Portland's excellent public transport everywhere I wanted, including the light rail to and from the airport. It was nice to not need a rental car. The room was stylish...

We stayed here while we attend the beer festival. The location was prefect and close to several of Portland's top restaurants. The staff was friendly and the room was immaculate. Also, the light rail is about 50 feet away.

Rooms nice, central location etc....what made it great was the service. Great service is easy when things are going well, but the test is when the unexpected happens. The valet dropped our keys down the elevator shaft over a holiday weekend and "the fix" was not very straight forward (smart key needed to be reprogrammed by dealer). The staff took...

Good location. Very friendly staff, clean room, restaurant attached to the hotel. Easy walk to the Pearl District. We enjoyed Portland so much we stayed another day. Things to do are breakfast at Mother's Bistro & Bar, Oregon Zoo, shopping downtown, walk the Pearl District & grab a pint at Henry's Tavern or Deschutes Brewery.

This Marriott was perfect for us as we had family staying at the Governor very close to us. This is pet friendly, however there is a $50 pet fee which I found to be rather high.

I'm very familiar with the Marriott/Courtyard brand, and normally a big fan. I recognize the difference in brands - a Fairfield Inn won't be quite as nice as a Ritz Carlton or JW Marriott! BUT - the renovations made to this Courtyard by Marriott property are impressive! It was in a great location just 0.3 miles from a MAX Transit...

For the second year in a row we did a romantic night at this hotel for our anniversary- even tho we don't live too far away. It's not like the other Marriott Courtyards anywhere- it's considered a boutique hotel. It's the perfect location for 'doing' downtown Portland: all the shopping, bars, top restaurants as well as all the transportation systems,...
