Great Hotel quaint and quiet in an urban nature fusion. With an emphasis on service this place was great! My river view room was spacious and swank. The view was great and I enjoyed the gas fire place. The onsite restaurant Aquariva has good food! The only negative I can say about this property in you Must valet park ......

We chose the River’s Edge Hotel because we wanted a hotel by the Willamette River, close to the riverfront walking & running trails and not too far from the city centre. Thanks to the Tripadvisor reviews we were forewarned of the mandatory $30/day valet park for private vehicles and we budgeted for this in our overall cost for the hotel....

this is a really nice hotel and we had a beautiful room with a spectacular river view. The price of the rooms is not cheap but we had always wanted to stay here back when it was the Avalon and this was our chance in early December 2016. The service from the front desk to the bell hops was fantastic....

Very nice room , the staff was courteous. There's a good restaurant just steps away, and that's about it. It's not centrally located to anything else. If you want to walk to any nightlife or shopping, don't stay here.

This hotel sits right on the Willamette River and has some nice property that connects to a long walking path along the river. The only negative thing about this place is the driving directions to the hotel. Obviously there have been changes to the roads so trying to rely on GPS can be difficult. Portland has road signs but they...

We were at their restaurant for breakfast while staying at the hotel. After waiting for 10 minutes with no one offering beverages or the menu we walked out. Hostess when told about the experience was defensive and had no clue of efforts to encourage us to stay. Not going back :(

We arrived late night; therefore, were totally unprepared to be greeted by the spectacular view - once the fog lifted. Surrounded by vibrant hues of fall and the calmness of the Willamette River, left me in awe and almost speechless, which in itself is not an easy feat. The staff was attentive and accommodating...without a doubt, we will stay here...
