    Marriott - always a great choice

    Marriott really knows how to treat their guests! They carried things for me and catered to my needs. I can hardly wait to curl up on these comfy beds to sleep.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront

    Hoping for Better

    from

    Never said this about a Marriott before, but this hotel was very lacking. I checked into this hotel in early December for a business meeting and thought I was stuck inside a broiler. Turns out my room's window was a few feet from a grill's vent in the restaurant. Guess where the beef fumes went to?

    To its credit, the hotel moved me, but I had to physically go to the front desk to get a move. I called earlier and a front desk staffer said, "we had no rooms." My visit produced a room. I was bothered by this blatent lack of cocnern by the front desk staff.

    The hotel itself is decidedly dull. It has NO local flavor, even amid a city with much to offer and quite a bit of uniqueness.

    Thre's nicer in Portland at about the same price, sorry to say.

    The Waterfront

    from

    The hotel is in a good spot for the many waterfront park activities that take place often during the better weather months. It's very clean, the staff is

    helpful, and the views are nice. I just stayed there during the Thanksgiving weekend and there just wasn't anything going on then. Most of the nearby restaurants and coffee shops were closed for the holiday. Response to the whiner over the valet parking fee however, Portland has one of the best

    transit systems going, leave your car at home, you can ride everything for 3.50 a day. Good hotel, just time your stay.

    My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Marriott. Clean room, comfortable beds, helpful staff when they knew the subject matter. Great rate online. Close to the MAX stop and walking distance to restaurants, coffee houses, Powell Books, drug store ... Park at the Star parking lot around the corner from the Marriott for $4.00 and save yourself $18.00 from what the hotel vallet parking charges. Overall, great hotel to stay at while discovering Portland.

    Disagree with the reviewer from Vegas

    from

    No disrepect meant, but felt I should offer an alternative view on this hotel, since I just checked out this morning from a very comfortable two-night stay. I found the room to be exceptionally well-appointed, the bed one of the most comfortable I have slept in, with a stunning view of the river that runs through downtown Portland. All this for an incredible rate of less than half of comparable hotels in the area! As for the valet parking fee of $21 per 24 hrs., this is the going rate for overnight hotel parking charged by nearly all downtown hotels in Portland. I parked in a garage only a block away from the hotel for $9 per night. Overall, this is one of the best values I have ever experienced in an urban, upscale hotel.

    Not A Deal

    from

    Although a nice hotel in a nice location I was disgusted to stay at the hotel this weekend at what we thought was a very reasonable rate only to be told on arrival that the only parking available was valet at the princely sum of $21 a night. Plus the honor of tipping the runners everytime you want your car. Not such a great deal. They also tried to charge us for room tax which had already been paid through Priceline. Check your bill. I will not stay here again.

    Great Place

    from

    We were in Portland on a pleasure trip for the 2004 Dragon Boat Festival and were glad to have stayed at the Marriott. The hotel was great, great rates, great rooms. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Made our trip that much better. An excellent place to stay - close to shopping, restaurants, and the water (important to us).

    Great place in good location

    from

    Normally I wouldn't stay at Marriot but got a great rate on this Hotel at Expedia and was pleasantly surprised. It's a good central downtown location, close to Max, resturants and shops. The room was nice, clean, and very comfortable beding. Great big hotub in fitness area and very friendly, helpful staff.

    A Nice Gem

    from

    This hotel is now one of my favorites. I got an amazing deal for this hotel for one night, during the last week of March and it was an amazing treat. It's only a few blocks away from city center and MAX stop, situated along the attractive Portland waterfront. Immediate surroundings include Keller auditorium, Newmark theater, Portland State University, and other downtown attractions and destinations. Upon entering the hotel, my impression was one of polished modern elegance. It's location seems to attract the business type people, thus a quiet retreat could be expected. Check-in was fast, courteous, and welcoming. With a room on the tenth floor by the west wing corner of the hotel, the view was beautiful. The room was efficiently and nicely appointed. It was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom however, was a little small. Overall, in comparison to other Portland hotels, this would be an excellent choice. I recommend this solid all around hotel. I will definitely return.

    Wonderful trip; Loved the Marriott

    from

    We were in Portland from August 2-8 for both business and pleasure. Stayed at the Marriott Downtown and had a room with a view of the river and Mt. Hood. Everything exceeded our expectations! The hotel was great; the room was pretty, roomy, and the bed with the new down pillows was one of the most comfortable hotel beds we've ever slept in. The city is so pretty and we did a lot of sightseeing--a city tour, a visit to Mt. Hood and the Columbia Gorge, one day we drove through the wine country and visited wineries, one day we drove to the coast and visited Cannon Falls, Seaside and Astoria as well as Fort Clatsop for the replica of Lewis and Clark's winter fort. In Portland, the Japanese Garden and the Rose Gardens are simply beautiful. We enjoyed excellent food at several restaurants. The city of Portland was just a wonderful place to visit and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to see a beautiful American city.

    Nice place

    from

    We had a pleasant stay here, the room was nice, the staff friendly, and we were lucky enough to have a spectacular view. We walked around quite a bit of the city. The hotel is on the SE end of the centeral downtown, so some of the downtown stuff is a bit of a walk, but not too bad. Lots of food and stuff within easy walking distance.

    ... bears were particularly active. One bear was playing with a big plastic barrel. He was trying to bite it, but couldn’t get it because it was round. So he pushed on it with his front paws to make a wrinkle that he could bite and show that barrel who’s boss. The tigers and leopards were sleeping and we couldn’t see them well, so we headed to the Lorikeet Landing exhibit. I really enjoyed this exhibit. It’s an enclosed area where the ...
