“Blissful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2011

We had no real idea how this hotel/spa stay would be. We went completely open minded. It was wonderful. The Riverside King room is peaceful, quite, convenient to downtown and to Reed College where we were visiting. The staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean, fragrant and quiet. The fitness/spa facilities are great if you choose to use them. I also must add, the hotel room bathroom is incredible! The rooms could use an in room refrigerator as standard practice. Those are always convenient. I believe you can arrange to have one, but for the price of the rooms they should come standard. Overall a wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: Riverside King faces the Willamette River. It's on a part called Cottonwood Bay. Trees are a lit...

I had just completed reservations for the Avalon when a review popped up. I read it thought, no that couldn't be true. Yes the rugs are stained. The continental breakfast is tasteless. The hallway smells like an old, musty building. On the positive side the bed was comfortable. I do not plan to return to hotel.

The Avalon is on the South Waterfront (near OHSU's Center for Health and Healing). It is always great. The waterside rooms are a real treat but all rooms are good. The front desk is helpful, hybrids park free, and the associated restaurant is excellant.

Room Tip: Riverside is definately the prettiest at any time of year.

Being from Los Angeles we wanted to be close to downtown but not in downtown and this place along the river was the ticket for us.
We enjoyed the outdoor setting which this hotel provided from the rear patio.The room and service was very good and if in Portland again we stay at the Avalon.

Room Tip: The section over looking the river.

This is a well run hotel, near the river and bike path, south of downtown Portland. Staff is friendly, rooms and public areas are clean, restaurant next door is good. Only drawback is lack of convenience getting downtown.

Room Tip: Request river side room.
