The location is beautiful and offers many views of the Columbia river. Rooms are spacious with many amenities. Hotel offers a full restaurant and bar overlooking the river. Outdoor hot tub was comforting, even on a cool spring day.

We enjoyed out stay at the Jantzen Beach Red Lion. It was close to shopping, food and the Expo Center. The view was fantastic. We only wish it was not March so we could have used the pool and spa, it was just a little too cold out!

Overall experience was great. Our family suite had a beautiful view looking directly at the river. However, it was noisy at night because of airplanes flying buy. Room was dirty, not clean to our expectations for this high star hotel.

I stayed her for three nights and the bed was very comfortable. The rooms were very reasonable, although we received a lower conference rate that might not be available for a nightly stay. The food services were great along with the conference facilities. There were problems with the wifi, both the hotel's and the conference-but it was free.

Very disappointed with this RED LION. To pay over $200 for a one night stay and find the room dirty and with several maintenance problems was very sad. We will not stay at this Red Lion again as the tax rate and other charges are too high.

Had a great experience except when two night some quest were partying out side and we couldn't sleep. Everyone was very nice and the place was beautiful. I really enjoyed being by the water it was my favorite part.
