The room and bathroom were updated, comfortable and clean. The location was good, highly walkable to most things. A harborview room is a complete waste of money since you are mostly looking at a parking lot. I probably would try a different hotel in the future, maybe something more historic.

Upon arrival at the hotel we’re told there was no breakfast package which we thought we booked when making reservation. Spoke to real person to make reservation. The room was lovely but for $500/night you would think they would at least provide a couple of bottles of water. I had to go back to purchase them. We travel often and always found at least this amenity in the room. We are Marriott members but clearly that doesn’t matter. I accept no housekeeping due to Covid and short staff but water? Will consider taking our business elsewhere in the future.

Thank you so much for staying here with us at the Courtyard Portland Downtown/Waterfront! I want to thank you for taking time to fill out a survey; we appreciate the feedback and comments you have shared with us. Survey comments and rankings are reviewed daily and we take this information very seriously. As a team, we strive to continually improve upon our guests' experience, so I thank you again for taking the time out of your day to provide us with this valuable information. I noticed in your survey you graded your overall satisfaction low. Please accept our apology for not meeting your expectations during your stay, unfortunately bottles of water are not an amenity provided by the Courtyard but we do offer a pure water filter within our gym to provide guests with purified water as well as reducing our consumption of plastic bottles. Our apologies are also offered for the confusion in regards to breakfast packages. While we do offer breakfast in our Bistro each morning, most reservations are not inclusive of a breakfast package. We have begun working on ensuring the clarity of this for future guests, We are always looking for ways to improve our service, and greatly appreciate your comments. Again, we thank you for being our guest. We hope to see you on your next visit to Portland.

The friendliness, warmth & responsiveness of Derrick and staff made our anniversary weekend extra special. Hotel amenities in addition to the usual also include a free comfortable van for transport, clean indoor swimming pool, air purifiers, excellent shower. We were disappointed the gym had no recumbant bike but delighted to be directed to a gym 10 minutes away, excellent customer service. Once home we realized we had left a jacket; they mailed it to us immediately. Room 511 has two King beds and a fine view of the interesting harbor. Prices are high everywhere but this was great value. We hope to return!

While this hotel was a little pricey (everything in Portland is) the rooms were large, clean, and comfortable. We mainly booked this for the location and shopping and restaurants were all in walking distance. We had a pleasant stay and I would recommend this hotel.

We just returned home today after a 11 day vacation, 4 of which we stayed at the Courtyard in room 531. The room itself was very nice. It was a junior suite on 5th floor with a “harbor” view. The rooms were huge and lots of windows, are view wasn’t quite as inviting as they make it sound. We were overlooking a parking lot and working dock with a slight view of the water. When we arrived the valet staff gave us our ticket and then watch us pull our suitcases from our car and place them on the luggage rack never offering to help. We are 2 women in our late 50’s one of us is handicapped. I just felt that they should have been more accommodating in helping us. $30.00 a day got us our car to the door and nothing more, but a tip in their pockets. housekeeping is currently halted due to COVID which was not a big issue. There is a bar in lobby that serves Starbucks and the 2 guys working were always very friendly. The location is a few blocks from the hub of old port, but is walkable. When we checked out, once again the valet guys watched us struggle to get 3 suitcases loaded. All in all the Courtyard is a nice place, I just think they could go a little extra on customer service.
