right on the river. huge complex. huge lobby, tons of rooms. very nice, beds, big rooms too.
but, its over a flight path, so if you are really noise sensitive, you might want to think twice about it.
not a lot of eating places within walking distance, but a few. taxi can take ya anywhere.

great staff. spotless. nice new carpets. free Wi-Fi.

Room Tip: overlooking the water......ground floor....not too close to the elevator or ice machine .

Thoroughly enjoyed my 2 night stay prior to a river cruise departing from Portland. Large comfortable room overlooking well landscaped pool area and Columbia River. Unusually large shower in bathroom. Every staff member goes out of his or her way to greet each guest. Excellent service by housekeeping, maintenance and food and beverage service. Very reasonably priced. Wonderful Dungeness crabcakes, eggs scrambled with real lobster meat and bernaise sauce, good selection of Oregon and Washington state wines.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking river .

My husband and I stayed here and thought everything was fantastic. From the maid service to the front desk to the shuttle driver, everyone was courteous and accomodating. We had a double queen room and it was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The bathroom was amazing with beautiful tile and plenty of room. A mini fridge and coffee service were wonderful additions. We'd gladly stay here again anytime.

My husband and I and our four dogs stayed here for 9 days during our National Specialty Dog Show. Without fail, the staff were over the top helpful, efficient and friendly. The rooms were comfortable, the place clean and nice, the food in the grill good, and the parking ample. Great walks for the dogs.

Room Tip: Because we had four dogs with us and I have a bad knee we asked for a ground floor room and were gra...

We absolutely loved our room and it even had a partial view of the river! First thing we did was jump in the pool! But after that we wanted to just order a pizza and relax so we called the front desk to find out who delivered and they reffered us to a place called bandinis... We looked it up and it wasn't even near by so we call again so ask if that the only place the girl didn't know of any other pizza places near by. So we order and an hour later recieved a horrible pizza that looked like it came out of the freezer.... Next night asked front desk again if they knew of any near by restaurants with good desserts ...after being put on hold They reffered us downtown.... Come to find out upon leaving there's a restaurant across the hwy called bj's pizza & ice cream! Wish The front would have known it was there too... Maybe they need a concierge service because nobody was helpful at all in that department

This a large, relatively old, but well maintained hotel and convention center. The personnel is extremely friendly, grounds are great, especially in May, when everything is in bloom. The room was very spacious, with all conveniences - fridge, microwave, free WiFi, additional sink outside the bathroom, lots of drawers, comfortable large desk. I would add a handlebar in the bathtub and a chair in the room. The beds are a little soft, but it is matter of taste. Perhaps the best thing is powerful and quiet AC. The restaurant in the hotel is quite good and has a beautiful panoramic view on the river. If you want to save, across the street there is a big shopping center with several chain eateries. The hotel is close to big roads, very convenient if you drive, since it is within may be 10 minutes from downtown. Keep in mind that the hotel is "dog-friendly." Most dogs are well behaved, but you may see some fur in the elevator. Did not bother us at all.

Great spot near the airport, easy access to I-5, about eight minutes to Convention Center or downtown. Easy parking if you have a car. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the restaurant has a great view of the River. What really made our stay memorable was the friendly, helpful staff! We will stay there again for next years convention.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the end of a hallway. The hallways are a bit noisey until after 11 pm.
