Reviewed 23 April 2012

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!

Location:
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!

Appeareance:
The hotel had a contemporary feel,was very clean and smelt fresh like a spa!


Rooms:
Our room was not spectaclular but is was very comfortable and clean.

Customer Service:
The staff was extremely helpful and curteous! The hotel provides a complimentary continental breakfast in the lobby of each floor.

Spa/Gym:
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!!

We loved this spot. It is not downtown so we weren't distracted by too much to do. The restaurant is a few steps away. There is a walking path right outside the door that goes along the river. The rooms look over the river. There is valet parking and a spa. We loved the bar, where we enjoyed our drinks while looking at the river and listening to good music ( not live, but still good).

Room Tip: Ask for a river view.

Decided to take an anniversary "get-away" weekend at the Avaon Hotel and Spa. Best decision we've made in a long time. The room accommodations were luxe, and all the conveniences were in place. We walked into the room and had soft classical music playing in the background while the aroma of fresh linens and CLEAN greeted me. It's been a long time since I smelled CLEAN in a hotel room!! The hotel is on the river and at the edge of the waterfront district which means it's quiet unlike other hotels closer in the center of town. Parking is a bugger (only valet parking) and the restaurant next door creates a nightmare parking situation. Don't plan on getting your car to go anywhere during Saturday afternoon/evening. We chose to walk a few blocks to the trolley stop and use it for our downtown shopping and eating, which we love doing. There is a Spaghetti Factory on the way to the trolley stop, so you can eat there easily. We didn't use any of the spa facilities at the hotel so I can't review them here, but maybe next time we'll do the spa thing and leave the running around town for another stay. I highly recommend this hotel. I just wish they had a better parking arrangement.

We were looking forward to our stay at Avalon but were very disappointed by noisy corridors, thin walls, cold water, and no in-room fridge.

Room Tip: Do not stay on first floor
