This was our first trip to Portland and we were not sure where we wanted to stay. We had tried to book a hotel in the "heart of downtown" but the prices were outrageous! We decided on the Avalon hotel because it was less then 2 miles from downtown and the price was great!
The hotel is located in a commerical/residential area but located on the water and there is a great walking trail. There is a very trendy resturant right next to the hotel that also boasts some nice views of the water. After seeing the hotels in the downtown area, I was glad that we stayed where we did!
The hotel had a contemporary feel,was very clean and smelt fresh like a spa!
Our room was not spectaclular but is was very comfortable and clean.
The staff was extremely helpful and curteous! The hotel provides a complimentary continental breakfast in the lobby of each floor.
We did not try the spa services but the prices seemed a little "pricey" for the service. The Gym was probably one of the best gyms that I have seen at any hotel! They had a lot of equipment, yoga balls, boxing bag and even a yoga studio. There is a trainer that comes onsigh also!
We would definitely stay here again!!
