My wife & I went for a weekend overnight getaway. We live in the Portland metro area but enjoyed being in a different part of the city than we normally see. The rooms are nicely furnished & fairly typical for this price range hotel. Views of the "hillside" or willamette river are available . We chose the river view, which in late march, was nice. I can understand how some previous reviewers may have been disappointed with the river view in summer, when the cottonwood trees that line the riverbank would be in full leaf, obscuring much of the river beyond. The service is great, & bikes are available to tour the area. The river front path is excellent for walking, jogging & biking. Be advised that if you want to take advantage of the spa services, such as massages, a reservation is recommended. While not really within walking distance of downtown, it would be a quick cab ride away.
The adjoining restaurant & bar, aquariva, is worth a visit and deserves it's own review. Like the hotel, much of the value is in the the view and location, but the food & service are worthy.
