Consistently easy experience. Access to walking the river path is the best! The staff are all so kind and helpful. The spa is an added benefit to staying there. The restaurant is a pleasure. I have no complaints what so ever:)

We were in town to visit a sick friend in the hospital and the staff at this hotel were so kind in how they accommodated us. The walk along the river path is unbeatable. If you drive a hybrid car, as we do, there is no charge at all to park at the hotel as they are a green hotel;...

This is our fourth time staying at this hotel over the past 8 years. We will always return here for our Portland trips, including one coming up in October with our two kids. The parking is valet and as we had a hybrid car this time, the daily parking fee was waived which was great. We keep coming back due...

Overpriced with poor service: water for shower was luke warm; water from faucet was cludy--safe to drink?; TV reception was poor; Coffee in room hidden so I could not find it; No coffee on early morning checkout. For $326 /night you expect more

I have stayed at the River's Edge several times over the past five years (see my reviews dated 11/2/14 and 10/26/15). The hotel isn't luxurious like the Four Seasons, but it is definitely a step up from a Hampton Inn. It is in a very pretty location next to the Willamette River (see my photos). You should definitely reserve a...

One night stay with river view king room, very pleasant on every level. Dinner at restaurant was delicious, excellent service. Appreciated the parking fee waiver for our hybrid vehicle. Would stay here again on next trip to Portland.

This was a great overall experience. The staff was so friendly and helpful, especially the valet staff, they were so fast and friendly. The room was beautiful with a river view and a balcony. The restaurant and catering was outstanding, I highly recommend staying here,

This hotel is located close to downtown Portland and overlooks the Willamette river. More importantly, however, right out the front door is the Willamette Greenway trail. We walked to the Sellwood bridge and then kept going. Wonderful change of pace for this desert dweller from Las Vegas. Property is just beautiful. Nice fitness area indoors as well. Be sure to...

Stay for an anniversary trip. Enjoyed overall experience. Clean, friendly staff. Would recommend. Location was nice proximity to downtown Portland. About 5 minute walk to nearest city transportation stop, which then takes you all over the downtown area.

This is a great place except the beds are not comfortable, too soft and sagging. Sheets were pilled, pillows were too thick and not down, so they don't compress. The service is wonderful, the rooms nicely laid out, the spa wonderful. Except for the beds, this would be a fabulous place.
