We stayed a one bedroom suite. There is a door to separate the bedroom from the living/dining area. The bedroom is spacious and the bed was comfy. There is a TV inside the bedroom and in the living room. Outside the window, we had a view of he river and overpass. We could not hear anything with the windows closed....

Dear Boogalie, Thank you for taking the time to give us a review, I am delighted the room worked out for you and your family. We are excited to get new sofa and sofa beds with our renovation in the fall, they should provide more comfort. I am glad you were able to enjoy the breakfast, all items are served...

Nice new place. They call it River Place... They should call it Highway Place. Our room overlooked not a river, but a freeway entrance about 60 feet away. Asked to change rooms. No luck. If you are choosing to stay here, first be aware that you are not downtown and second be aware that it is not on a scenic...

Christine G, Front Office Manager at Residence Inn Portland Downtown/Riverplace, responded to this review

Dear B C, Thank you for taking a moment to share your thoughts about your stay. I apologize you did not have a great view of the river, but Portland is known as the bridge city, and we do get our fill of that being close to the river. Although some of the rooms do not have the best view,...

Reviewed 15 April 2014

Pros: Location, room size, breakfast Cons: Location, older facilities Read on for more: Any relatively experienced traveler knows that hotels like to stick "upgrading" words on their names- in this case, "Downtown". The hotel is certainly within what could technically be called "downtown" but that doesn't mean it's anywhere near the high-rises, 1st Street, etc. But that also isn't a...

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

Dear Sudobuntu, Thank for your review! Being right on the river front means we are away from the high rise buildings in downtown but since our hotel is nine stories high we have excellent views of both the city or the river. We also sponsor our own stop in front of the hotel for convenient access via the Portland Streetcar....

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....

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,...

Dear FrancesAmbler, Thank you for taking the time to rate our hotel. We want a renovation just as much as you!

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.
