Quick trip

Hotel under renovation and lobby also overwhelmed with smell of spa. Room service was mediocre. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Room itself was fine but nothing special. Setting along the river was gorgeous but nothing in walking distance. Breakfast at Aqua Riva was very good and excellent staff.

Treated well but hoped for more

We stayed here the night of our wedding in one of the large suites. The staff was very accommodating and comped our valet parking when they found out we had just gotten married. The wraparound balcony was very nice we ordered room service for breakfast and ate outside. The food was good and surprisingly not too overpriced. The room was, indeed, huge, with one-and-a-half bathrooms. However, for a relatively expensive room, the furnishings seemed fairly standard, and the fireplace didn't seem to work. Unfortunately, we weren't there long enough to take advantage of any of the hotel's other amenities, so I can't comment on those.

Surprisingly good

It was a new experience to stay a ways away from downtown Portland, as we like the convenience of leaving our car. But Rivers Edge was where we landed, and it was a treat in many ways. Especially the location on the banks of the Willamette, far enough away from town to be serene, with a fantastic path at the river's edge. But we also were pleased with the room. Comfortable, roomy, a balcony over the river, huge bathroom. I would have liked a microwave in the room was glad for the frig. Next time, I'll remember my swimsuit and use the spa facilities. The restaurant was also verly good our breakfast (with the river view) was splendid. Have you ever tasted raspberry ginger lime jam? Wow.

great work out facility to keep on track while there on business

Super friendly staff and nice location on the river. Wished I had gotten there before dark to run outside but they have a Great workout gym that I was able to use instead. Healthy and good value on the room service dinner as well. This was my second time to stay at this hotel and prefer it to the downtown options.

Fantastic spa getaway

My room at River Edge was fantastic. It smells fantastic as soon as you walk in, very nice and citrusy unlike most hotel rooms. The service is impeccable, as is the gym and spa facilities on the premises. The river is literally right next to the hotel so you can go for a nice stroll or a bike ride on the bikes provided by the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to get away and unwind. The only downside is that it's not located within downtown but that's only a short 10-15 minute drive away.

Holiday trip

We spent 8 nights at this hotel. It was perfectly located close to the South Waterfront of downtown Portland and to where we needed to be for Christmas. The best part of the hotel was the spa. I used the steam bath/room (gender specific) every morning to ease a sinus condition it saved my vacation! The staff were friendly and the wait staff at the restaurant Aqua Riva, especially Lesa, were outstanding. Lovely views of the river as well. I will stay there again!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

At the hotel if you "go green" and do not request new bedding or towels for even one day you will receive a $5 credit for breakfast (except you last morning).

Waterfront hotel with resort style treatment

This hotel provides a good getaway vacation in portland. I was there for a business trip but decided to choose this hotel as it provides easy access to trail on river. It is a little far from downtown but they provide free shuttle and bikes. We enjoyed our stay with morning bike rides and really pleasant stay with spa services on offer

Great visit to Portland

Hotel was beautiful! Very clean, nicely designed, good location. A shuttle was available for guests to take downtown-- hotel was located a little south of the city on the Willamette River. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Spa was very nice-- I just used the jacuzzi, did not have any services. The restaurant was pretty good-- really only area that could be improved. On the whole, a very pleasant stay.
