The building itself feels a bit dated and weathered - but this doesn't detract from the spacious rooms, great common areas, and nice view of the river overlooking the tennis courts from the top floor. It's easy to navigate to, directly off of I5, and has a shopping mall and number of restaurants nearby (including the fantastic BJ's Brewhouse). The outdoor pool was closed for the winter and the sauna next to it was a bit too off-the-beaten-path for me to use during our stay. Lot's of business-types walking around for the various summits that seem to frequently be held there.

Room tip: Sound from the night club may leak through to nearby rooms. Fourth floor has a good view of the river.

We were celebrating our 50th Anniversary with a little get away. Having stayed at the Red Lion some time ago, we decided Portland and the Red Lion would be a nice junket. The service was above & beyond. Yolanda provided recommendations, directions, even making reservations for us. The pillow top beds are extremely comfortable, cleanliness and amenities were unexpected.

We have never been to Portland in our lives and upon checking reviews on the internet, we stayed at the Red Lion Hotel on the River-Jantzen Beach and it was a very nice stay. It was a spacious, clean, modern room with a view from the balcony -not a direct view of the Columbia River but still we could see it and the beautiful manicured yard and tennis court. It had a microwave, frig and coffee maker in the room which we love (we drink a lot of water and like the frig for that and also coffee in our rooms). The hotel shuttled us back and forth to the downtown and that is such a good thing so to avoid the Portland traffic. It's just a beautiful establishment-close by a shopping mall and grocery store. The food at the restaurant was great-we went there for 3 meals and was never disappointed. We'd definitely stay there again.

I am happy that you enjoyed your first trip to the Portland area and that you were able to take advantage of the local shopping and our great Restaurant overlooking the Columbia River. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

When we arrived..after 5:00 PM the front desk gal told us that one of our 2 rooms wasn't ready. We were exhausted after a long day at a funeral service. I thought check in was at 3:00pm or 4:00 pm so we were unpleasantly surprised to be told our room wasn't ready. Plus ask for a room overlooking the pool not the tennis courts area.

For a nice hotel I expected a bit more. Not a 50 minute wait to get towels. Torn up umbrellas around the pool and hot tub which are old and ready to be remolded. The headboards were filthy along with the left over food on the carper

I am sorry for the long wait on the towels you had requested and I would like to let you know that the umbrellas around the pool cabanas were in the process of being replaced during your stay along with a renovation of the entire pool area and depending on the weather we hope to have the pool area surface replaced along with new tile around the sauna, The umbrella project around the cabanas is already complete and I hope you will like the improvements on your next visit.
