The hotel had a welcoming atmosphere. I wish I could have stayed longer. Everything was just so nice. They don't have microwaves in the rooms though and there didn't seem to be free parking. Those are my only two negatives. This place is lovely and I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing trip to Portland.

I really enjoyed my stay here at the River's Edge. Loved the spa and the attendant, Nate. However, the only thing that really bothered me was the local transportation they had offered on their website but never actually had in real live. That was bothersome so tons of users were used. Pretty walk around the river, and the jacuzzi

The reservation confirmation stated a hillside room but what we got was a room facing an office building. We were thinking about changing to a different room. But, we were told by the front desk staff that they could not make any changes for us since we did not book the reservation directly with them. What a disappointment!

Loved your beautiful, peaceful location and walking trail by the Willamette River. The valet and front desk manager were exceptionally friendly. Breakfast at Aquariva was wonderful and the wait staff were friendly and attentive. Unfortunately I was at the hotel for a quick one night stay with exercise and diet restrictions (this is a great place to stay if you...

Over all it was an amazing quick getaway for us. We were able to reboot and get back to real life very relaxed. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends that want a quick getaway or even a long term.

Charming hotel located close to downtown, on a quiet stretch of river. Short drive to grocery stores, restaurants. Wonderful location right on Willamette River, charming bike path. Rooms were large, well appointed, and perfectly clean. Highly recommend.

Hi nathang433, We are so happy to hear that you would recommend us after your stay at River's Edge! That is truly the best compliment that you can offer. I happen to agree that our location is pretty great...close enough to everything that downtown has to offer, but tucked along the river to offer our guests a sense of relaxation...

A beautiful hotel. Unfortunately our room overlooked the air conditioning unit, which was rather noisy and unattractive. Otherwise, clean, spacious room with attentive staff. Valet park only for your car which was $40 per night - rather pricey for being outside of the Portland downtown area.

It is difficult to understand how this place succeeds. My question to the manager is this: do you not realise you are in the hospitality industry? Your front desk manager doesn't seem to think so. When apprised of the fact Friday morning, that, despite having booked our specific room 5 months ahead, it was not available Thursday evening, and that...

Will not recommend or return to this hotel. I did not receive the reservation I had asked for. I did not feel welcome at all by the front desk person. I felt I could have been treated better and he should have moved my husband and I to a room that I needed and reserved in the first place.

We loved staying here. Valet only parking, no self parking. $30/day for this service, definitely worth it. Room was amazing, it had a river view. Service was incredible and definitely classy. Room and bathroom were clean and we loved the fireplace. Overall, where our room was it was very quiet, not a lot of ambient noise or street noise. I...
