“Thanks for a Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It was a lovely hotel, situated peacefully outside of downtown Portland. Located alongside the river with a quiet pathway great for a morning walk, the Hotel has a defininite boutique feel to it.

Check in was very effortless and quick, with a surprise of a upgrade to a riverview room. Bell service very helpful. Valet service(an added fee) with swift service and very welcoming staff. I utilized room service during my stay, also very timely and helpful service. While the selection is somewhat limited, it was very tasty after a long day of sightseeing.

Everyday the Hotel puts out a continental breakfast with some of the typical fare of cold cereals, milk, yogurt, muffins, breads and juice. For those whose room was, like myself, close to the ice machine may be delighted to know that the ice comes in prepackaged bags, as to avoid making the usual noise at all hours of the day and night, a charming detail.

The only downside is small, but definitely noticeable. Some of furniture show signs of definite wear. The Tv was not the most recent model, aka crt. Shower head was dated as well. But none of these little details should deter you from experiencing this fine hotel.

Room Tip: I was on the 3rd floor which gives you an excellent view of the river.

We chose to stay at the River's Edge because of it's location to OHSU and the Air Tram. The Hotel was beautiful, clean, and peaceful. The staff were super accomodating. Valet parking was a little expensive but the attendenants were awesome. Our family was happy staying here. We didn't get a chance to enjoy the spa or any other activities near by as our 3 day trip was (unfortunately) spent mostly at OHSU. The Old Spaghetti Factory is just around the corner...very conveniently located. Thank you, River's Edge, for being so friendly and making our experience the best possible.

I stayed at the hotel for a business meeting and was impressed as all staff members had a genuine interest to be friendly and make sure my stay was great. Great setting and beautiful property. Used the Aquivira restaurant for hoting clients and the staff did a tremendous job on making sure the food and beverages were available. They even made rounds around the room asking people if they needed anything else.

Removed from downtown, but still accessible. Modern hotel tucked away at peaceful location. Great views. A very relaxing experience that was a good value. Spa was a nice treat! Great rib shop in walking distance. Kayaking on the river was a blast. This is place to stay if visiting Portland.

I chose this hotel because of its proximity to the south waterfront campus of OHSU. It was an excellent choice for me. The river view was peaceful, just what I needed to offset medical worries. The staff was efficient and friendly. The room was nicely furnished. I've never had a bathroom with both a shower stall and a tub. Parking was a little too expensive. I had a good meal in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Choose a river view room. Even the ground floor was fine.

I stayed at this hotel last year when it was know as the Avalon. On this visit, I asked for a river view room and they were able to place me there. If you can, always request a river view room as the view is spectacular. I was on the 5th floor with a balcony overlooking the Willamette River. I'm surprised that they do not charge more for river view rooms. The room was very nice. Clean and comfortable. The only issues were that there were not enough outlets near the desk to charge mobile devices. Also, the TV frequently pixelated and I got the black screen telling me to call Comcast. Not what you want to see after a long workday far from home. But, the staff was very friendly and only too anxious to help. The valet parking attendants went above and beyond to help. On arrival, I left my iPhone in my rental car. I didn't even have to ask, when he heard me tell the front desk clerk that I had left my phone in my car, he ran out the door and appeared a minute later with my phone. That's real service!

Room Tip: Ask for River View as the scenic view of the river is spectacular. Also, I stayed just around the c...

Booked a night here for a "stay-cation" and thrilled with our experience. Attentive staff from the minute we arrived at the valet all the way to our room. Little touches like continental breakfast on each floor and citrus-infused ice water in the lobby made it better than expected. Location is perfect - right on the river and SO close to downtown. Relaxing views of the water and sunrise from wall-wall windows with European-style hinge door to the private terrace and riverside walking path right out the lobby door. Also ppreciated not having to pay extra for wi-fi internet and actually having it in the guest room!

Room Tip: If you're going to stay here, get a river view room.
