Good deal for the price

Staff were helpful, rooms were clean and modern with HD TVs and cordless phones. Free WiFi was fast compared to other hotel. I also liked the double flush toilet system to conserve water.

Great Stay

We went over to Portland for a concert at the Roseland, whcich was literally 2 blocks away, so that was perfect. The rooms were very clean and nice. The staff was very friendly. My only complaint would be that the parking is $29/day, which wasn't too bad as we only stayed one night, but if it were more than one night, it could really get expensive. Overall, great place to stay.

courtyard-portland city center

This is an excellent hotel and a good value; it's very comfortable, rooms are clean and spacious , it's well-located, and the single best feature: a terrific, reasonably-priced restaurant attached to the lobby(but not operated by the hotel)called the Original.

Nice friendly hotel

Very nice hotel weak coffee in lobby, but free. Far to much $$ to park your car $29.00/day. Need mirror outside of bathroom. In 2 bedroom room, your probably not sharing the bathroom at all times. Otherwise well kept.

Snazzy, New Hotel

Great location, spacious and quiet room, well appointed with cool artwork. A good value for what we paid on Orbitz (around $99 a night).

A pleasant surprise!

Stopped in Portland one Sat. night and chose this hotel because of its near perfect location, walking distance to the riverfront, pearl district, cultural district and the real Saturday farmers market. This courtyard had more of a boutique feel..local artwork, interesting decor and rugs. Small king room, but very nicely furnished and comfortable. More than we expected. Valet parking is pricey but very reasonable parking can be found close by. We had a delightful and delicious breakfast at The Original restaurant, located at the hotel, comfort food with panache.

Try the tamales at the Saturday farmers market while enjoying first class musical entertainment along with amazing smells and beautiful sights of abundant flowers & produce, to tempting baked goods, people strolling and just enjoying being there.
