The day of my wedding was perfect! The assistance that I received from Tabitha was amazing! I highly recommend anyone interested in an outdoor wedding to check out this space. The food was also fantastic! I was worried initially about the food because sometimes big catering jobs tend to lessen the quality of the end result, however the food at our wedding was above my expectations and everyone loved it!

My Wedding Day was a disaster due to poor service and poor communication through this vendor. The day before the wedding they called me and told me I didn't have a room that I had reserved well in advance (the bridesmaid suite) and shoved me into a tiny room, proceeding to tell me I was lucky (as a bride) that I even got a room the night before my wedding since they were booked. The front desk worker hung up on my friend twice when she asked to speak with a manager. I found out my room was given away to one of my guests they got as an upgrade for no reason, my husbands room got checked out to someone else 10 minutes after he checked into it, the front desk was rude to a lot of my guests and didn't call the shuttle to the airport and I had people almost miss their flights home because they "forgot" multiple times, the set up staff didn't remember to come so my mother and bridemaids had to in their dresses use a ladder to hang stuff while my family that had come earlier to help out were told they couldn't do that because it was a safety issue but then when we are trying to take pictures before the wedding they okayed it because they couldn't get ahold of the set up team, we ran out of food and were told people "over ate" in which they didn't and we had about 25 people not show up to the wedding, my poor father didn't get to eat because he was trying to let everyone else go first, there was a small shot glass broken and my personal attendant was handed a broom and told to clean it up, one of my friends had to call and complain about it for them to actually do anything so people wouldn't step on glass, and when my husband and I went to check into our honeymoon suite, they told us it was already checked out when it was apart of our package we paid for and it took 45 minutes for them to resolve the situation. I won't even get into some of the other small service details, but I am very dissapointed as my Husband and I will never get that day back.

The Courtyard Marriott Riverside Verandah was an amazing place to have our wedding. Charlotte and the rest of the staff are wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed. She corresponded quickly and professionally to all my crazy emails. It was the perfect mix of an outside wedding with the ability for our guests to stay at the hotel. I could not have asked for a more perfect day! I would highly recommend their beautiful outside location.

It was amazing to have the wedding coordinator there to help with all the planning we didn't think of. The clean up was so nice to have, that's something you don't want to think of when you're trying to enjoy your day. They had decorations around the hotel veranda so it didn't look empty. The fountain and gazebo was so romantic to have.

Are contract agreement stated that we would only get that prorated price up until a curtain date, because I have been so busy planning my wedding I didn't even think about the expiration of this and was in a panic since i had a block of about 8 rooms i needed. They were very helpful and Charlotte.Marco was the one who saved my stress and honored what we had originally had planned and moved the date to a later date, they are the greatest and really made my life so much easier in the stressful wedding planning. thank you!!

The moment I saw there venue in the Portland, OR Bridal guide I knew it was exactly where we both wanted to have it. It had everything we wanted. Beautiful, outside, large space, gazebo, overlooking the water, with a little "urban-ness" feel to it. From the getco, Tara (Marriot wedding planner/coordinator) was so sweet. She got us all the information we needed and more. Gave us numbers of vendors, ideas, emailed me to keep me informed and answered all of my 2000 questions daily in the process. haha, always with a smile. As it got even closer (since i planned it in only about 4 ish months) she was even more helpful! She always always went ABOVE AND BEYOND everything I asked or questioned. She always found a way to make it work. The day of there were some stressful kinks, she handled them, I didn't even know or remember what they were cause she took care of them and EVERYTHING looked AMAZING, the day was amazing, I couldnt have had a more helpful, kind, hard working, genuine person to keep me sane and help me through every detail than her. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone and everyone to The courtyard north harbour marriot, perfect location, perfect setting, great food,affordable, EXTREMELY GREAT WEDDING COORDINATOR and staff. Thank you so much for all you did Tara and everyone!!!!IT WAS THE PERFECT WEDDING!! J. WEBB :-)

I was looking through a bride magazine and came across Portland North Harbour Courtyard By Marriott. This venue looked absolutely stunning to both my husband and I. we had no idea what we wanted for our wedding. We knew we wanted an outdoor wedding and we wanted the ceremony and the wedding to be held at the same location. We looked at several wine vineyard and then looked at the Portland North Harbour Courtyard By Marriott. Once we came to the Marriott our search was over. This venue had such a great feeling about it and once we met the wedding planner we fell in love. Tara Blair was a phenomenal attribute to this site and our special wedding day. She was extremely easy to work with and very organized. There are so many more things that go into a wedding than you can possibly realize and Tara was there for every step. My husband and I would recommend this place to ANYONE! This place was picture perfect from start to finish. The staff at the Portland North Harbour Courtyard By Marriott was hands down amazing! I'm still getting complements on my photo's and asking where this location is. The guest that attended this event are still saying we had the wedding of the decade! We are thankful to have found such a beautiful location, Thank you Tara and the staff at the Portland North Harbour Courtyard By Marriott for making our special wedding a memorable event!

My husband and I got married this past July and our reception was at the North Harbor Marriott. I absolutely fell in love with the venue the first time I saw it when I was looking for a reception location. The outdoor courtyard was a perfect reception site--beautiful scenery with the river and mountain view, and I really loved the fountain and gazebo features that were also there! Many of our guests commented on how they had never been to a more beautiful location for a wedding reception! The staff at the Marriott were all very nice and helpful throughout the planning process, especially Tara, the wedding coordinator. She kept in great touch with us and made the whole process very stress-free! I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a beautiful place to have their reception! Our day was simply wonderful!!

We loved our wedding on the Riverside Verandah at the Courtyard Marriott! The verandah was absolutely beautiful and the weather was perfect! Charlotte their coordinator was great to work with and she definitely kept me on track with getting things planned. I loved working with her and she made our day run smooth which gave me a chance to just enjoy every moment! The rest of the hotel staff was also very pleasant and great to work with. The hotel itself was supposed to go through a remodel prior to our wedding which did not happen in time so we were a little disappointed. However since the wedding took place outside it didn't matter as much. When they do eventually get the remodel done it will be an even better venue. Just needs a little updating! Another perk to this venue is its location. It is very close to the airport and right off of I-5 which was great for out of town guests. We had a large portion coming in from out of town so it was great that they could take the hotel shuttle over and then have to worry about driving. Also some of our local friends and family rented rooms so they did not have to worry about driving home and could enjoy themselves at our reception. Overall this is a great outdoor venue and once they get their remodel done and some things updated it will be even better!

My husband and I didn't have a lot of money to throw a wedding for family and friends coming from all over the country so we wanted to have something close to the airport with affordable accommodations. Overall I was not particularly happy with the inside of the hotel as they were supposed to renovate before my wedding and later told us it wouldn't happen by the date they promised so that was a bit disappointing. Our wedding coordinator wasn't that great, but she was fine to work with. This was a good option for the price but the accommodations could have been better.

My sister married at this venue in September 2013. Multiple rooms were mixed up, my sister's honeymoon suite was switched with another couple. The day of the wedding there was broken glass that people in our party were told to clean up instead of the staff. Again, we were told that we would have help setting up the wedding from some staff, but instead my Mother and I after having make-up, hair and our full outfits on, were given a ladder to set up the gazebo!

Furthermore, my sister had ordered 1.5 times the amount of food per person and that was expecting a 150 people... 120 showed up for the ceremony and reception and yet we still ran out of food.No offense to the banquets chef but your chicken was dry, the caprese kabobs were bland, which was not anything like the tasting that took place back in January. Not to mention the attitude from the staff did not help my sister or anyone for that matter. The worse part about this is we didn't even get a discount.

I get it, Brides get a little crazy from the stress, it is however a special day. Except, as a person who has worked at a gas station and is now working at a high-class resort, every customer/person should not be treated the way we were.

The only person really trying to make everything pan out staff wise that day was Charlotte. She literally tried her hardest to make things work even though it got worse throughout the day/evening.
