Portland Marriott City Center vs. Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront
I am planning a trip to Portland and am looking for Marriott patrons who are familiar with these two properties. Trying to determine which one I should book for a week-long stay. Any insight is appreciated.
I can only speak to the City Center Marriott, as we've stayed there several times. It's very nice, staff is great, always clean. It's nice to be right downtown in the heart of things. But, at times it feels a little crowded and closed in, mainly because it's downtown..
If you're driving, it's a pain to have valet parking only but you'll find that at most downtown hotels.
Overall, we would still stay there every time, although we do like the Residence Inn in Portland when we have our kids.
