"Hidden Gem with Great Riverfront Views"
This beautiful hotel is hidden away from the core of the city, but less than 10 minutes away from the Pearl District and 15 minutes away from the Moda Center. We LOVED the suite, next to the business center which made for excellent Wi-Fi connectivity. Our daughters stayed across the hall in a riverfront room that boasted a patio and exquisite view of […] the Columbia River...literally on a walking/bike path next on the river. We also enjoyed the friendliness of the ALL staff, including their unabashed pride in the hotel. The rooms were exceptionally clean and modern. The valet service is reasonable for this area of Portland where hotel parking can be quite expensive. It's one of the reasons we decided to stay here. We ate dinner at Aquariva, on the property with waterfront views. The food was good, but not great. The concierge recommended we try nearby Café Du Berry for breakfast; though small and quaint the food was delectable...5 stars. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again when we travel to Portland for Trail Blazers games. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Swankiest waterfront hotel around that allows dogs"
Actually, they didn't just accept my smart little mutt, they welcomed her. We loved everything about River's Edge, from the peek of Mt. Hood through winter's bare branches to the awesome greenway along the river to the fine food & camaraderie of its restaurant, Aquariva. The spa & gym are top notch as well. Absolutely no complaints.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel near waterfront"
This was a pleasant visit enhanced by the customer focus of all hotel personnel. The hotel itself is quite nice, but it is a bit off the beaten path. Room was comfortable and clean. TV reception is not very good, but then, we weren't there to watch TV. Parking is nonexistent, so you are required to use the hotel's valet overnight parking unless you […] want to trek into neighborhoods (which means you won't be parking nearby). Keep this in mind when calculating your costs. Next door, Aqua Vie restaurant has wonderful ambiance, but food was just okay. You can take a 30 minute walk to the south waterfront to eat at one of their restaurants. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful Hotel, but NO PARKING!"
The Hotel is beautiful and comfortable, close to the water, and beds were very clean. I gave it a 5 in every category, but facilities. The one thing that bothered me was there was absolutely no parking available unless you pay the $25 fee for valet parking. If you think you will just park by yourself and not use valet you literally are not able to park […] anywhere around the hotel because the location in which it sits. They do have a large flat parking lot but only usable if you pay the $25. You have to drive several (like 4) blocks away, and park in some residential neighborhood if you want to park without the huge fee. It's not that they don't have room, because they do. It's just that they will charge you an overnight fee of $25 even if you want to park yourself, with the sign that says "overnight parking $25, with valet included." All things considered I might stay there again if it is still a better deal than the next hotel, with the $25 added on, but if not no sir. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great alternative to staying in downtown Portland. Rooms have balconies and views of the river. Spacious and inviting with gas fireplace and cozy beds. The fold-out couch is actually comfortable. Huge bathroom. Next time we will walk the trails and take the street car into downtown. Loved this place!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel by the river"
Good view and very peaceful from the hotel where we stayed. Good service and people work there are very nice. They can drop us off to the downtown and also pick us up if we need them.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Romantic Weekend Getaway"
We chose to stay at the River's Edge Hotel and Spa for the three day weekend of Valentine's Day and I am so glad we did. The hotel staff were so nice and helpful and our room was beautiful. We took advantage of the on site spa and had a great experience there. The complimentary car service that was offered to downtown was great and made getting to and […] exploring the Pearl District nearby really easy. I would love to come back and had an excellent stay!

Picked this hotel, after looking at several, based on a single factor: a fireplace suite for a romantic Valentine's Weekend for my deserving Wife. The room available to us was "A room". It was OK but it was not what I reserved/planned. Desk Staff was very nice - but... I would have reserved elsewhere if I had known the fireplace suite was not going […] to be available.

"Just a hotel NOT a resort"
When we first pulled up our thought was "this is a resort?" The service was excellent at the reception and my favorite part was the valet but they charge their guests to park per night, ridiculous! The room was cozy but literally so close to the business next to us we could make out items on the desks so we had to keep our blinds closed because the […] glass wasn't privacy glass. Also 23" tube televisions in a "suite" let alone a "resort"?!? Lastly the spa... Couples massage was ok but not really. We left massaged but feeling like we could have given massages like that to each other and saved ourselves quite a lot of money. There wasn't even a shareable hot tub or sauna to even enjoy afterwards!! We came for a lavish and romantic weekend and there was nothing genuinely lavish or romantic about this place.

"Room not ready by check in time"
Overall, I found this hotel to be lacking in comfort, service and amenities. I don't care for mandatory valet parking that immediately adds $24 a night plus tips but because of lack of space you have no choice. The "Hillside View" room had a view of the back of an office building. The room was not ready at 4:30. They forgot to change a comforter on […] one bed. The requested refrigerator was not there and had to be delivered. Location was not particularly convenient for our needs. Ice machines are only on every other floor, not ours, 4th floor. Best part was the pathway that went along the river. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect spot to stay always!"
This hotel was perfect. It's just outside of downtown right on the river. The on site restaurant was perfect, food was great and bar tender Shae was awesome! Stayed in the deluxe suite, oh my goodness sooo awesome! Jacuzzi tub, woo! I will definitely be back alot more!Genuine Expedia guest review
a little bit far from the city but excellent shuttle serviceGenuine Expedia guest review
I loved staying at the River's Edge. I was Portland for a leisurely weekend in the middle of a business trip. I wanted someplace close to downtown that was nice but not going to break the bank. This fit the bill. Gorgeous, relaxing decor and setting-my room faced the Willamette River and it was lovely. Two cautions: 1) it's about a mile from downtown […] proper; you could walk, but it would take a few minutes. It's not a criticism, just an FYI. 2) The restaurant is wonderful, but only open until 10:00pm. I didn't see any others in the immediate area. Next time, I'll take advantage of the complimentary bicycles and ride the bike path along the river, and maybe use one to go downtown. (Bike locks and helmets are provided.) Overall, I highly recommend the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were pleasantly surprised! Excellent staff. Everyone we encountered was friendly, professional and informative. The room was very clean and comfortable. The decor was updated but the TV was old school and seemed out of place. All rooms had a view of the river Cottonwood Bay, very pretty and serene. Complimentary driver service offered along with […] bicycles and helmets. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
First of all there is no parking. Valet is 25 dollars a day plus tips. Ok I suppose there is parking if you want to park a quarter of a mile away and trek up and down a steep parking lot. This parking is on a residential street btw. The hot tub was broken. The "spa doors open at 5:30, and there is hot water and tea...if you go ask the front to get it […] for you. They do get it but after letting you know it's the spa girls non to do that. Well they come in at 8 so great. The gym floor was super dirty and dusty around the edge. There was only 1 sanitation wipe holder that had anything in it. I get it that it was January but the balcony in our room was so green with mildew and stuff growing out the cracks it was so gross. Also the paint was chipped and peeling off the rail leaving if all rusty. There were brown water spots in the bathroom. Another huge disappointment was the king river room had no fridge or microwave. REALLY? The room also had a huge old school tv no HD and basic cable. For what we paid you would think there would be a flat screen tv. We did not do any spa treatments or eat at the restaurant. We didn't want to give them anymore money than we already did. I wanted to stay in a nice relaxing pretty hotel for my fiancee's birthday weekend but for real next time it's back to holiday inn express suites! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We reserved a Riverside Deluxe Suite which overlooked the river. We had one hiccup when we arrived at the River's Edge our room wasn't ready so we walked north about half a mile and had a late lunch at The Old Spaghetti Factory, when we came back our room still wasn't ready so the hotel clerk said we could explore the city and he would call is when […] it was ready. He never called and when we returned we were given a way smaller room than we reseved luckily a different clerk fixed the situation and gave us the correct hotel room. After that it was a great stay... The hotel room was large, clean and had an amazing view. We loved the wet bar and the beds were comfortable. The valet staff was amazing and thy have a courtesy shuttle to get you Downton Portland hot spots. All in all good stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not meant for Family Vacation"
For a Hotel and Spa, there wasn't much "spa" to it other than the actual spa itself. There's no pool -- there's nothing GREAT about the rooms. just typical. Wouldn't stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good, not great"
While there were a few highlights, overall I would say it was a satisfactory stay. the hotel itself is in a beautiful location, and a 10 minute car ride to Downtown Portland. the restaurant is excellent, and the food is amazing. however the front desk staff seemd EXTREMLY uninterested in anything I had to say. im not saying they were rude, just apathetic […] at best. BEWARE the hidden $25 per day charge to park ytour car overnight. I was not told this and had a nice surprise when I checked out. it was ironic, seeing as how the provide "complementary valet service" but charge you this extra fee...on top of which there is no other place to actually par, so you are stuck with this if you have a car. overall experience was fine, however for the money you are going to shell out, you can find something much much better Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Why do we keep staying at this hotel? Each time, we vow never to return, then 3 months later, we do. I think we just forget how bad the noise is. Probably sleep deprivation. It's easy to see how they suck us in. The hotel is pretty, on the river and bike path, great location, and the suites are spacious and really reasonably priced. But what's the point […] of a hotel room you can't sleep in? And I'd like to meet the person who can sleep in this carnival. Thin hotel walls happen, and there's nothing worse than checking in and hearing a sneeze or conversation through the wall, but the noise problems at Rivers Edge go WAY beyond that. It's not just that you can hear every noise in every room - toilet flushes, footsteps, chairs moving. There's something about the design of the hotel that amplifies the noise, so when the person in the room above you sneezes, it terrifies you out of a dead sleep gasping and clutching your chest cuz you'd swear they're in your room somewhere. There are some minor changes they could make - carpet over the inexplicable choice of pergo floors in a multi story hotel, un spring load the doors, pad the latches, but there are some more serious structural issues that have to be addressed for it to be habitable. And it's a shame, cuz I dig what they're trying to do in this horrible building. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Very great and friendly staff. Got a room upgrade for no additional fees.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice property but had no hot water and one of the bathroom sinks was clogged the first night. Maintenance came at 10:00 the following morning to fix. Also mildew growing on carpet near a leak at the balcony door. Parking at $25 per day seemed a bit much since the lot is right next to the hotel. Breakfast room service not available unless you go next […] door to pick up. Otherwise, nice view and location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Beautiful Stay"
This hotel is just a wonderful place to stay in the SW part of Potland just 2mi from downtown in a quiet residential neighborhood. A good walk or bike ride along the Willamette River is inviting, if you want to leave the beautiful hotel at all. The rooms are very richly furnished, clean, quite and with business desk and comfortable couch and patio deck. […] I had a comfortable quiet sleep and wish I could stay there again. Next time, ill probably have time to enjoy the spa and gymn. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel with nice view"
Everything was great and the hotel has a great fitness center. The location is close enough to some restaurants. The only complaint that I could have is parking at $22 per day which seems a bit crazy since other options for parking is limited. The staff could be more helpful in this regard too and provide alternatives.Genuine Expedia guest review
I really appreciated the attentiveness and generosity of the staff. Everyone was friendly and gracious, without any trace of the stuffiness normally associated with high-end hotels. The cheerful willingness of Rivers Edge drivers to shuttle our group around Portland made our short stay stress-free and allowed us to get everywhere we needed to be with […] ease. Access to the hike and bike trail was great. We weren't there long enough to use all the amenities, but everything looked first rate. Oh, and the room was great!

"Portland, OR December 2013"
This is the third time we have stayed at the River's Edge. The location on the river is easy to access. The staff were great. Parking is free if you have a hybrid car. The location is quiet. The restaurant associated with the hotel is a great alternative if you are not going to drive into town for dinner. It was too cold for us to try the complementary […] bikes available for guests. There is a great path along the river for biking, walking, etc. The trolly to downtown is accessible a mile up the path. In warmer weather with would be an enjoyable stroll. We enjoyed using the spa and the exercise facilities. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Favorite hotel in Portland"
Great service and great location. If you're looking to stay in downtown Portland surrounded by restaurants and nightlife than this place isn't for you. But, if you're looking for a romantic hotel by the river complete with a spa and amazing exercise facilities you should stay here. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I stayed here for a special […] occasion which I shared with the front desk staff. Later that night there was a complementary bottle of champagne on ice in my room when my fiance and I returned from dinner. Class act. I cannot see myself staying anywhere else in Portland going forward. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Asked if it had jacuzzi tub, answer was yes. When checking in found that it did not have a jacuzzi tub,it had mold in the shower stall no vending machines for drinks on any floor.I will never use this site to book a hotel again. and to add to it the charged 22.00 to valet park, and to top it off the guy who brought your car to you expected to get a […] tip on top of the 22.00 you already paid.

"An Unexpected Gem"
The staff was very helpful and friendly.

LOVED the fireplace and the huge tub!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

I had reserved the hotel room the night of the Jameson Bartenders Ball, and was pretty excited to find out that it was Hotel and Spa. A great way to unwind after a fun night out among friends. I went to open the balcony door that over looked the river and to my surprise the door came right off the hinges!!! I thought to myself, "WOW! I am getting strong, […] or it must be European style, if that's a thing??". Time to watch some sweet, sweet, cable!! Me being a busy student and bartender I don't have cable, but miss it... So time to find it! Come to find out, it is one those fun TVs that I had the pleasure of hauling down 3 floors whenever I helped a friend moved, you know? those CRTs not those nice lil flat screens... Oh well... But the best/worst part was when we came back after dinner and going to the ball and wanted to have a nice bath with bubbles and some wine to finish the night... NO HOT WATER... I mean it would get warm, like luke warm... but not anything you would bathe in... Totally reminded me of those European hostels... Never knowing what you would get when you pushed the button. I was sad and defeated... the Hotel and SPA had no hot water.... Oh well Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"An Urban Retreat"
Conveniently located only a few minutes from I-5 immediately south of downtown Portland, this quiet and well managed hotel offers an opportunity to experience a mix of the urbane and the bucolic. An excellent spa is right within the hotel, and a good restaurant right next door. But if you have a room with a river view (as I did) you look out on water […] and trees as if well removed from the city. A walking path along the river is close at hand, and a selection of other restaurants a short drive away. In short, if you want to be close to downtown but value serenity, this could be the hotel for you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

It is a nice quiet part of the city. Close to the city center but far enough away to avoid the crowds. It has a beautiful view of the river and an excellent walking trail right there.

Very disappointing stay in an overpriced hotel. We were never told of the hotel amenities at check in and had NO idea we could use the hot tub in the spa.I had read reviews before we went and had thought I read about it and asked. The location is nice on the river but its far from dining and shopping. We went to the on site restaurant and it was empty, […] there were employees standing around talking and one employee was elbows on counter reading the paper! Our bartender was nice tho. We did express our concerns and later the manager brought a bottle of wine, which was a nice gesture. The rooms seem a bit in need of attention, looked like bubbles in paint and the TVs are old. The bathrooms are nice, however it took FOREVER to get lukewarm water. It never did get hot. Not sure what was with the dial on the was for TV volume when there is no TV in the bathroom. I did check and it did not control the TV in the room.For the price we would not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
