Kodiak, Alaska
Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

I stayed here with 2 of my friends for a conference in July of 2013. The facility was nice, the rooms were as expected, but the location was much further from "downtown Portland" than we were led to believe from the description. While the area around the riverfront was lovely it was not very close to downtown.

Brenda A, General Manager at Residence Inn Portland Downtown/RiverPlace, responded to this review

Dear tmill1, Thank you for being our guest. Our location on the waterfront is at the south end of downtown referred to as South Waterfront. With easy access using the Portland Streetcar, many find our location more quiet and relaxing than being in the middle of the downtown bustle. I hope you enjoyed a stroll along the river walk to...

The hotel was close to the river and a great river walk. The hotel provided a complimentary hot breakfast each morning with many choices. Complimentary dinners were available several days a week, too. My only objection was the location of the hotel. It sits at the convergence of several elevated highway systems and I found the noise level was higher...

Dear 907-Jeanne, Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. I am glad you were able to enjoy our renowned hot breakfast, and enjoyed the events in the evening. They call Portland the "Bridge City", and we get to share part of that here. It's unfortunate our best views of the river are also facing the...

We stayed two nights at this Residence Inn during a weekend visit to the great city of Portland. We had two rooms for our family. Each room was actually two rooms, with a living room/kitchenette in one room and a king size bed/bathroom in the second room. The full size fridge/microwave kitchen area is great when you have children along....

Mexico City, Mexico
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Overall I had a good experience at this hotel. My suite was a little dated, and some of the furnishings were very scuffed. Windows don't open, but my guess is that is to keep down the noise from the highway which is just outside. The location is sort of on the river, but really next to an elevated highway system,...

I stay in a Marriott Hotel numerous times a month. I am a Platinum Elite Marriott Rewards Member so I know quite a bit about Marriotts and I don't think I'll return to this one.

This Marriott Residence is an excellent choice for Portland. The full kitchen is great and the facilities are clean even if a wee bit worn. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would have given it four buttons if they had given us the room we booked. Although they allow pets, they keep rooms/floors for those of us with allergies...

I went to Portland for a work event. This was a great hotel - clean, staff was excellent. Location was close to restaurants. Parking was a little expensive but then I think all hotel parking is expensive. Happy Hour provided at the hotel w/appetizers and beer/wine. Room was very nice & clean.

We could not have had a better first experience in Portland than the one Residence Inn Portland Downtown/RiverPlace provided.
