"Walking path to Downtown or to scenic river scenes"
We had a wonderful time. We had two dogs with us. The dog rooms are on the first floor and we had view of the river and trail. The hotel is new to dogs but greeted ours with dog treats and doggie bags. All employees went out of their way to be friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Quiet, beautiful hotel just south of the center of the city. Path right outside along the river takes you right into the thick of it.... We will return.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but hard to find"
The hotel is nice with fine rooms and facilities, but is very hard to find. It is near the river across some old rail road tracks. With Portland traffic, it is hard to get to even when you know where it is. Good breakfast though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"BEST STAY EVER!!!!"
Love, love, loved our time at this hotel!!!!! Highly recommend it!!! Everything was 5 stars for sure!!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Great service, great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"So peaceful yet so close to downtown Portland"
I had a wonderful stay at the River's Edge Hotel & Spa. My room was spacious, comfortable and clean. I enjoyed the balcony looking out to the river. The staff were extremely courteous. While there is no such thing as perfect, this hotel comes pretty close to being just that.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel with a beautiful walking path along the river. Getting there was difficult. Wish it was in a more convienent location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable hotel, good restaurant"
A little challenging to find, but we got the hang of it pretty quickly. Nice view of the river from the balcony thru the trees. Comfortable room. Good toiletries, excellent bath facilities. Only two comments are the mandatory valet parking at $19/day, which just feels like a gouge. (It's unnecessary, since the wide-open parking lot is mere steps away, […] but ok...) Free wi-fi is good, but that's beginning to be more common as hotels realize it's a real irritant to pay for something that costs them literally nothing to provide. Getting ice was a little odd...not the typical ice machine, but rather already-bagged ice in a chest-style freezer...which would be okay, except the cubes in the bags all frozen into a single chunk, necessitating banging the bag on the bathroom counter (only surface hard enough to withstand the ice) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A beautiful retreat"
River's Edge Hotel and Spa was a great choice for our romantic weekend. Although it was a bit out of the way (we spent a lot of time on the streetcar), the positive side of this was that while we were at the property we felt on retreat. The walking trails beside the river were beautiful and serene, the spa and fitness amenities were great, and we enjoyed […] our stylishly appointed room with balcony and river view. Also loved the fresh fruit with breakfast. Thanks to the kind staff for their hospitality! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Charming little hotel away from downtown hustle"
Very friendly staff - provided a lot of good info on places to visit and see. Very good spa with reasonable services. Rooms were decent. Definitely recommend the river view rooms as they have a balcony that you can sit out and enjoy the river view.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by River's Edge Hotel & Spa Dear Guest, Thank you for mentioning our very friendly staff and for your referral. All the best,
Our room overlooked the Willamette River and a beautiful grove of Aspens. We awoke each morning to the sounds of birds and a lovely cool breeze. The staff at the hotel were amazing. To a person, each was polite, helpful, and appeared very happy to be working at the River's Edge. The location is perfect with a five minute walk to the trolley stop and […] the daily Continental Breakfast a very pleasant surprise. To our delight, we even had a perfect view of the fireworks celebrating the 4th of July. We highly recommend the River's Edge and plan on a return stay for our next visit to Portland.

This is my second time at this hotel and it was as comfortable and enjoyable as the first time. The spa is small but clean, rooms comfortable with a view of the river. It is right on the river path to walk, run or bike. I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Relaxing for a night"
My friend and I spontaneously decided to go to Portland for a night while on a trip to Seattle. We had been staying in rather budget accommodations in Seattle, so decided to splurge a bit on our hotel in Portland. The River's Edge Hotel and Spa fit the 'splurge' part, though it wasn't quite as posh as we were hoping. That said, our room was clean and […] comfortable, and we enjoyed the healthier Continental breakfast in the spa, as well as soaking/sweating in the spa proper. It would have been nice to be closer to downtown, but the location was fine with a car, and we enjoyed being close to the river. Our only (minimal) complaints were the cost of parking and the noisy sheets. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by River's Edge Hotel & Spa Splurge is good and those spontaneous, last minute trips are the best. Thank you for sharing your experience with the Hotels.com community. All the best, Ana Maret Rooms Division Manager

"Almost a hidden gem"
I am an Expedia ElitePlus member. First time to usethe upgrade benefit. It is great. Booked the hill side room and upgraded to a river side room. This hotel is located along side of the Cottonwood Bay right off the freeway. The location should make this hotel superb but the cottonwiod trees made the view to the river almost impossible. The hotel is […] very boutique feel and the staffs are great. We paid USD135 plus $15-20 fee and tax. parking over night is $19 and including two continental breakfast (it was surprising good with lots of fruits and yogurt). For that price it is a superb hotel of choice. However, I have to do some maneuvering to get this price rathe than $169. For $169 plus fee and tax I would think twice before I stay here. Here are why: 1. walls are thin. Woke up by the nighbor at 1:30 because of the noise from the room. 2. Patio can use some update and cleaning 3. Trimming of the cotton wood trees can provide better view to the river, or else the river side room is more like cottonwood side rooms. 4. Mattress and bedings are ok and can be better to improve the guest experience. 5. Breakfast stay open only until 9:30. It would be nice to stay open a bit longer for weekend goes. 6. It does not have flat screen TV. 7. Electric outlets are located under the desk or on the floor. These are some of the simple but iportant upgrade to make your guest stay more comfortable. A little more thoughtful work and changes can easily make me come back in a heartbeat. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Really great for couples"
Really a great place for couples. Staff is extremely attentive, and the beds are very comfortable. The only thing that I would have liked, that was not in the room, would be a small bar/sink area with a mini fridge; just a convenience thing.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Always terrific . . ."
We've stayed at the River's Edge (formerly Avalon) many times. The staff is friendly and helpful, right down to the valet parking attendants. They have a fantastic gym/spa - which we've used many times. All in all a fantastic hotel in a beautiful, close-in but "off the beaten track" riverside setting.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Overpriced and hard to find"
Very overpriced as compared to many other hotels I have stayed at nationwide. $270 for a room that would be $150 max in most other cities, even more expensive locations such as SF, LA, Seattle to name a few. Location is very difficult to find, at least in the dark when we arrived. I have stayed in nicer hotels right downtown PDX, not 3 miles away, for […] less money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"It was nice, but we have stayed in better!"
The hotel staff was very friendly. Our room was nice, but the furniture could use some attention. The bed was very comfortable. The continental breakfast hours are horrible. 6:30-9:30... we woke up "early" to get there only to find out that we missed it by a half hour. This was dissapointing as we were starving. Aquariva-the restaurant close by has […] a fantastic view and full bar. We had dinner here and it was splendid. We did not take advantage of the spa... A taxi ride into town will cost you about $ 10 depending upon where you want to go. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel out of the direct downtown area"
This is an upscale hotel in the SW riverside neighborhood of Portland. It is situated directly on the hike/bike trail along the river. Staff are very helpful with a wonderful valet parking staff. Unfortunately, valet parking is the only parking around and is costly. The hotel is pretty new construction with some things to still work out. The breakfast […] is cold fruit, granola, and muffins with coffee and juices. They do have hot oatmeal too. The gym is fantastic, with lots of equipment. Sauna, steam room and hot tub are separated by sex and clothing optional. We also asked for a feather-free room after the first night, and they were very accommodating.

I love this hotel and have stayed here many times over the years. They are now under new management which seems to be good. The morning complimentary breakfast they provide is even better than before and you still have the option to use some of the spa facilities during your stay. The one thing I would recommend is a refresh of the rooms, i think the […] mattress in my room needed to be replaced as it was extremely lumpy and it's time to update fixtures and electronics to maintain their competitive edge.

It was a really fantastic experience for the price. The staff was great, and the room was very comfortable and clean which is important to us. The only drawback was the parking rate. It was a little expensive for parking a car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Disappointed in changes by new management."
One reason that I stay at Rivers Edge (formerly Avalon Hotel & Spa) is for the convenience of the continental breakfast right on your floor by the elevators. I could pad out in my slippers and comfy sweats to get coffe, etc. New management has done away with that and now you need to get presentably dressed and go to the first floor spa area for the […] breakfast. Also, more than 50 guests on my first full day there had no hot water!!!! That was fixed on the second day of my stay. The desks and some of the other furniture in the rooms need to be freshened up or replaced. I love the look of the rooms, but the desk tops are very worn looking. Still love the river view, but now the prices are going up!!!! So, i'm less happy because of the changes by management and had to pay more for the room. Not going in the right direction, i don't think. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This hotel is off the beaten path a little bit, but it is very close to Portland's excellent public transportation system, which is easy to use and very affordable. Another plus is the continental breakfast... it's not your typical food. The spread includes home-made baked treats (the banana bread was more moist than my mother's!) and a delicious house-made […] granola filled with nuts and dried fruit. We loved the fact that the breakfast is available right at the elevators on every floor, so it's easy to pop out to the table for another cup of coffee or a glass of orange juice and pop back into your room.

"SPENDY FOR WHAT YOU GET"
Hotel staff were really nice. BUT $20/day to park and you can't park your own car. No microwave or refrigerator. Furnishings a bit shabby for the price (worn desk, end tables badly repainted) Breakfast was OK but nothing hot and all carbs. I would stay there again but wouldn't pay full rates. Didn't use the spa facilities so I can't speak to that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
