A Rooster Welcome

Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront

First impressions are everything in hospitality. Every day, the leadership team of the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront spends the busiest check-in hours welcoming guests. This can just be a simple “hello,” but often they often go a step further to orchestrate a memorable welcome for their guests. Over the recent Chinese New Year, the arrival team set up a cultural experience to welcome guests, serving them traditional treats and performing a Lion dance to ring in the Year of the Rooster.
