We've stayed here a number of times and always had a great experience. However, this recent stay was a far cry from all previous. First though, Michael at check-in was friendly, courteous, and professional for most of our interactions. We showed up when they were slammed and he moved folks through check-in quickly and efficiently. He was also very courteous...

River's Edge is in the perfect location , close to downtown Portland but in a quiet , riverside location. My room ( 426) and balcony were high enough to have privacy from the jogging path below and to have a lovely view of the water and city lights at night. The room was spotless. My breakfast at the adjoining restaurant...

Great river views. Comfortable hotel. The aquariva restaurant next door has happy hour until 6:30 so check that out. This hotel has an extremely above average gym. If the gym is your thing when you're traveling, be sure to stay here!

The room was nice and when we said we would like to have a microwave in the room, it was brought to the room immediately. The hotel staff were very helpful and courteous.

The hotel was really nice. We loved that the hotel had the spa that we could use for free. The location was very busy and it had a small parking area that we had to pay to park.
