While these are not located downtown they do offer moderately priced accommodations and is only a bus ride away from the Marriott and meetings themselves.
If you are looking to cut down on the lodging expense, check out < HREF="http://www.sfaa.net">SfAA's Forum's and you will find two places to find roomers. The first is on the SfAA Conference Subject Section. In addition, you can post your requests on the Student Forum as well under our Conference Subject Line!Places to Eat
This Japanese form of fast food is usually sold in small little huts, and is essentially teriyaki chicken over rice.

Quality and prices, which normally run in the range of 5 to 7 dollars, can vary dramatically but Bento is a uniquely Portland fare.
Each McMenamins offers a slightly different menu and atmosphere. There are even two movie theatres where you can enjoy a fresh brewed beer and a second run or classic film at the same time.
McMenamins generally offers a good selection of classic American food ranging from Pizza to Burgers to Quesadillas.

This makes getting from the Airport to say the Marriott Downtown almost seamless, but it also means that is easy to go from other hotels outside the downtown area, such as the Motel 6, to the Marriott Downtown very simple.
Most busses pass through downtown Portland's transit mall which takes over 5th and 6th Avenues, and fortunately the Marriott Downtown is right on 6th Ave. This means that you can have nearly door to door service from many locations throughout the Metro area by bus!!
