I sometimes wonder who does the renovations and decorating of these hotel rooms? Is it someone who actually travels? Because the Portland Downtown Waterfront Marriott was selected, by my husband, because it had recently been redone. Plus it's convenient to walk to other areas downtown and it's on the water. Great. So we check in and the bedroom is quite...

Rooms were quite small and the staff was not very helpful. Parking is $37/day which is crazy. They charge extra for internet too which is unreasonable considering it is not 2005. Breakfast is something like $20. By the time you have a typical stay the cost of the hotel has inflated to $400/night and then you're still stuck with a...

We caught the Blue Star Downtown Express shuttle bus from PDX for reasonably priced door-to-door service. Lots to walk to from the hotel. We made a day of Voodoo Doughnuts, Pioneer Courthouse Square, food trucks, Tartberry, then the history and art museums. We asked for a river view room and had a nice upper floor view across the Willamette River...

I think the location of this hotel is great. It isn't in the absolute best area in the city, but the waterfront location is perfect, and there are a lot of things to do in the immediate area. Yes, the rooms are small. I was anticipating a small room, but to not have a real dresser was a surprise. We...

The hotel is centrally located and you can walk everywhere downtown or catch a metro train very close by. The hotel offers bikes for rent, so we did that and explored the Portland trails, which are wonderful. The hotel bar has excellent food and great service. All hotel staff were professional and friendly, very helpful with restaurant selections, ideas, etc....

Overall a Marriott property with what you have come to expect. Have stayed a number of times and keep coming back. The staff was friendly and helpful even with several conventions going on. We did have a small issue in the bar that was brought to the attention of the hotel staff that was turned over to the food and...

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel in the past and loved its location. The hotel has recently undergone a renovation. The rooms are "stream lined" now. This, apparently, means they have removed all drawers except one small drawer in the closet. No more bedside stands and simple flat top desks. The area in the closet where one...

Thank you for staying at our hotel. We are glad you hear you and your husband love our location and staff. We are sorry that you did not like our renovated rooms. During the renovation we removed some of the large bulky furniture to make the room feel larger. However from guest feed back we realize there is less storage...

This hotel is very close to the Willamette River and the views are great. The interior looks to be renovated and the decor is clever, modern and tastefully done. It looks like everything was very recently remodeled. There's a nice bar/bistro on the lobby level with TVs. Breakfast is served on the second floor with a choice of buffet or...

We stay at the Marriott for three nights after spending days at the NW National Park Lodges. It was a prefect end to our vacation. Clean and large rooms, with wonderful showers. Were able to walk to most attractions in Portland from this hotel, since it is by the waterfront. Our room has a view of the bridge and the...

Staying at the hotel for a conference and would say that it is not a great Marriott so far. No concierge in the lobby was a first for me in a large hotel. Beyond that, the rooms are fine but nothing to write home about. The food catered to the conference was good and the concierge level breakfast was good.

As we pride ourselves on delivering a memorable hotel experience during your travels, we have unfortunately fallen short of our goal during your recent stay. Please accept our sincere apology. All associates at the hotel are experts on local attractions, restaurants and retail and therefor we do not have a "dedicated" concierge. We do understand your point though and appreciate...
