I was calling about renting a room. The lady told me about the standard room, then suggested I might like to pay more for a King Premium River View Room. I wanted to see the river, so I agreed. Months later, when I saw the room, it overlooked the pool and courtyard. I called the front desk. "I paid for...

I am sorry you felt the room over looking the pool was not what you had expected, The river is located approximately 50 feet on the other side of the pool, Please accept my apology that we did not meet your expectations as that is never the feeling we want our guests to have.

I ave always been happy with Red Lion properties. This trip was no exception. The font desk was very accommodating, and gave us a choice of what room we wanted. We ended up over looking the pool side and the river (vs. the tennis courts and the river OR the parking lot) and let us have a 1-hour late check...

We requested rooms next to each other so that our kids who are 19 & 16 could have their space. We were given adjoining rooms that looked out to the river and towards Portland airport and a great view of Mt. Hood. This hotel is spectacular. Rooms are huge, upgraded with amenities. It was nice to have a sink/mirror vanity...

Hayden Island is a 20 minute drive from downtown Portland on a weekday afternoon, but a 5 minute drive on a weekend morning, and worth the drive. Beautiful room on the Columbia River.

We hosted an event here recently and couldn't have more positive things to say about the property. There are no doubt decor aspects that can use some updating, however the service quality makes up for it.. people working at this property seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs. Plus, every bit of food we ate, from the restaurant to event catering...

This hotel is quite large. The convention facilities are very good. The location is right on the Columbia River. However, the property is a bit dated and needs to be upgraded. The staff was friendly and very professional. However, there didn't seem to be enough staff to adequately handle the room cleaning, property maintenance and banquet service. Please note: the...

I disdain having to write a negative review, but it has to be done when warranted. To start, I will preface this review on the fact that Portland is not a 5 star hotel destination city and that few properties have outdoor pools. The selling point for this hotel was its river frontage and the fact that it has an...
