If you’re thinking about moving to the Portland area or are traveling to the city for an extended business trip, you should definitely consider calling Residence Inn by Marriott Portland Downtown/Pearl District your temporary home. This impressively stylish all-suites property, located in the ultra-trendy Pearl District, mixes a modern design aesthetic with world-class amenities to deliver the best extended-stay experience in the city.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Residence Inn by Marriott Portland Downtown/Pearl District is within walking distance from plenty of great restaurants and shops, but if you want to get to the heart of downtown, it’s about a 15-minute walk.


The suites at Residence Inn by Marriott Portland Downtown/Pearl District are stylish and spacious, with separate areas for dining, working, and sleeping. All suites come equipped with full kitchens with modern appliances, including dishwashers and microwaves.


The bathrooms are modern, bright, and plenty spacious (you’ll fall in love with the walk-in shower).


The lobby design at Residence Inn by Marriott Portland Downtown/Pearl District feels right at home in the trendy Pearl District - the modern furniture and floor-to-ceiling windows create an edgy vibe that feels more urban hotspot than hotel lobby.

The lobby is great, but if you’re looking for a place to hang out, you'll definitely want to head to the outdoor courtyard and grab a seat by one of the fire pits.


Residence Inn by Marriott Portland Downtown/Portland Pearl District has an indoor pool that’s open year-round.


The fitness center is open round-the-clock and has all the basics you need to get in a good workout.


A full hot breakfast is included in your room rate, and there’s a market off the lobby where you can grab snacks. For dinner, check out Lot 4 Urban Eatery, where you can enjoy American staples like a Bacon Cheddar Burger or Chicken Club Sandwich.


Lot 4 Urban Eatery has a decent collection of craft beer on tap and by the bottle. Stop by during happy hour (5 pm to 6 pm) and snag your drinks at a discount.


Getting Around

You can easily access just about everything downtown Portland has to offer on foot, and if you want to venture to other parts of the city, there are plenty of public transportation options (there’s a MAX Light Rail station just a block away). If you do decide to bring a car, there’s metered street parking or you can valet for $39 per night.


Head to Lovejoy Bakers (3-minute walk), a charming local bakery with an all-day breakfast menu and an impressive selection of fresh-baked bread and pastries. For dinner, try Irving Street Kitchen (8-minute walk), where you can enjoy inventive dishes like Chorizo & Squid Ink Risotto and Stuffed Guinea Hen in a cool, open-air concept dining room. Make sure to stay for dessert - their Espresso Fritters & Buttermilk Ice Cream are delish.


If you’re a wine person, you’ll definitely want to check out Cerulean Wine (6-minute walk), a wine tasting room where you can sample local wines while you browse through the bar’s in-house art gallery. If you’re more in the mood for a beer, try Deschutes Brewery Portland Public House (11-minute walk), an offshoot of the popular Oregon brewery with an impressive collection of beers on tap - including beers brewed on-site that you can only find in the Portland location.


Residence Inn by Marriott Portland Downtown/Pearl District has all the style of a chic urban getaway combined with the amenities and convenience you need for an extended day. Combine that with the fact that it’s in walking distance of some of the best eats in Portland, and you’ve got yourself a winner.
