I am beholden, most work trips, to stick to the Marriott brand. I am a points person, I admit it. But… I have to always go "government rate" to stick to my public employer's demands of per diem travel costs. It's rare that I've had a chance to stay at this hotel, but I finally did, and it was quite...

We had a great stay at this Marriott. We booked our hotel for $88 a night during the Easter weekend through Priceline. The room that we got was a handicap suite right outside the gym and the ice machine. Which was convenient but also we could hear some sound from people opening doors and getting ice. Otherwise, the room was...

We just came back from a great visit to Portland. This hotel is centrally located in downtown Portland and just a few short blocks from the Trimet (the light rail that you can take from the airport to downtown and vice versa.) Hotel lobby is small but comfy and have a check-in station and internet for printing out your airline...

So I think this is a really solid choice for a place to stay. It is quite a bit smaller than most Marriott's. I am surprised it is not part of the Autograph Collection. It could really do well as a boutique-style hotel that is a bit trendier...There is virtually no lobby, although there is some common space on the...

This hotel is in a great location in downtown Portland. The valet parking is $37/day, however there is a parking garage in the next block that charges a maximum of $20 weekdays and $11 weekend nights--including over night. We didn't use the restaurant or gym, but the rooms were great.

Lets face it, the hotel choices in Portland are generally quite poor. I've stayed at many of them and have come to expect a general low level of appeal. This is one of the better ones, for sure.
