Our family of 5 stayed here just a few nights ago. The place is just the right distance for us from downtown Portland. A 3 mile bike ride (bike to take free from the hotel) along paths but removed from the fray of downtown The room was amazing and very comfortable The staff was unbelievable, going way out of their...

Hi mjens93, thanks for taking the time to post a review and the staff will be happy that they were able to make your family comfortable and help you have some fun. The bikes are one of the most popular options and our “fleet” is kept pretty busy. Best wishes for a safe and enjoyable summer. Best regards, Russ Abell

We started with a king room and upgraded to a suite when one became available. Both were nice and offered a balcony on the river side overlooking the river trail. Like nearly every other 'view' in Portland, the trees prevented an open and clear view of the Willamette River, but you could see the water and enjoy the beauty of...

Tammie – Ouch, we missed a coffee pot! So sorry, when the exterior work was done this spring we also repainted all the rooms and in placing the credenzas back in place shorted the cords in a couple of rooms, thought we had them all but missed your king room, thanks for the heads-up.

Great stay for us. We were on our honeymoon and every staff member we came across was outstanding. I loved how versatile they were as well putting on many different hats during the time we were there. Complimentary bikes were awesome and the steam and jacuzzi were awesome as well the night after a lot of consumed local beers! Thanks...

We picked RIver's Edge because we wanted a place that would provide a respite from the downtown scene, but still be easily accessible. The property sits right next to the Willamette River, and the sounds of birds and the water is soothing. The room was clean, bright, and well-appointed; the bed was comfortable; wif-fi was free and easily connected and...

We stayed here twice. Great location and a very nice walk to downtown, about 2.5 miles. Hotel staff is great and very helpful. Very quiet. Only complaint is that the beds are much too soft, and would be better if restaurant served weekend breakfast earler than 8am. Otherwise, terrific place to stay in Portland.

I actually have a membership to their spa and gym because I work nearby, so I was already familiar with it, but I stayed the night recently after a party, and it was very nice. I'm a stickler for beds, so I was pleased to find the bed very soft and comfy. They have crazy doors on the balconies that...

The Front Desk associate greeted us with a strange and discriminated attitude. He asked me if I ever stayed at River's Edge before; and before I answered to his question, he jumped right into the conclusion and told me "Probably Not". He did not smile or made any facial expression to mean it as a joke. While typing my info...

Average hotel in my opinion. Room was 3 to 3.5 star quality. Location was not great, about a 7 to 10 minute cab ride to "downtown".
