I had a chance to to extend my stay in Portland after a trade show and decided spend the last two days at the Avalon. The service from start to finish was nothing short of excellent. The staff are all well trained,courteous,efficient and genuinely friendly. Check-in was seemless. The river view room was spacious and comfortable. The european tilt-in door provides just the right amount of ventilation when just have to have some fresh air. The bathroom was spaceous as well; the large sink top and upper shelf provide plenty of room to spread out all of your toiletries. Julie Andrews could have spun herself around just like she did in the Sound of Music and never touch a wall in this bathroom. Each floor has its own continental breakfast station directly across from the elevator; it makes so much sense I don't know why more hotels don't do this. What could be more decadent than to be able to walk around a hotel in your bathrobe any time of day and nobody gives it a second thought. The service at the Spa was equal to the hotel. The facility is well designed and spa treatments met my expectations. The valet parking is well run and efficient. Although the Avalon is not in heart of the downtown, it is very easy to access from I-5. I will be returning to Portland in the future and when I do, I will be staying at the Avalon.
