We spent one night at The Avalon because we got a LivingSocial deal. We would most definitely stay again. Next time, I would like to try out the spa services. The restaurant was amazing.

This place is absolutely amazing on all levels. Wonderful staff that were so professional yet warm. We checked in a little late and were given a room on the first floor on the end. The room was lovely but we had hoped for something higher with more view. Mind you we were using a Living Social deal but I took a chance and asked if there was any other room we could upgrade to. Totally willing to pay for it. The Front desk young lady found us a bigger room and gave it to us with no extra charge! Making a birthday that more special without even knowing it till after the fact! I will come back and send everyone I know there. The restaurant and the hotel compliment each other perfectly. Aquariva Italian Kitchen also has amazing staff and awesome food. We had happy hour and dinner there it was that wonderful. Make sure to save room for dessert!

Room Tip: Riverside is beautiful with personal patios. Quiet and serene.

We just returned home from a three night stay at the Avalon in Portland. It's a lovely hotel and spa in a neat spot overlooking the river. Though it rained our entire stay, we did take advantage of the walking/running trail along the river. We really enjoyed having breakfast right on our floor, and it's far and above your typical "continental breakfast". The granola is hearty and very tasty...the pastries were "bakery status". Good coffee and juice as well. As many other reviews have mentioned, the only two things we would recommend changing: 1. Upgrade the TV's to flat screen. 2. Get rid of the valet parking. It is just ridiculous that the parking lot is right outside the front door, and the valet walks about 20 feet to grab the car (and then you feel obligated to tip him/her). Other than those two things, we will definitely stay again at the Avalon and would recommend it to anyone.

Dear Heidi C,

Thank you for taking the time to review The Avalon Hotel and Spa from your recent visit, we appreciate that you enjoyed your accommodations and continental breakfast. We would like to take a moment to clarify for others that we understand the parking situation may be out of the ordinary, unfortunately we do not own those spaces, we rent them, thank you for your concerns.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

The quiet luxury of the setting and the convenience of a full service spa make this an excellent place to escape.

Room Tip: River view rooms are worth the extra money.

My wife and 10-month-old came with me to Portland when I was working there for a few days. We extended the trip so that we could have a bit of a vacation together, too. We asked for a junior suite and they upgraded us to a much larger suite, which for the three of us was perfect. I travel with lots of gear for work, and the baby... has lots of gear, too. We asked for a high chair and they mangaged to snag one from the restaurant downstairs, which was lovely. But aside from us, I don't thing there were any families around at all. It was all business travelers. My wife and baby took the streetcar into downtown each day I was working. It was easy and straightforward. Location was beautiful - right next to the river. But there was a 20-minute walk to the nearest convenience store, which was a bit of a problem because the hotel didn't have any snacks or drinks to buy unless you went through room service. We had a great trip, and the room was really impressive. But if I were only vacationing in Portland, I would have chosen a hotel closer to downtown that had seen more families in its past.

Room Tip: It was expensive, but a corner overlooking the river was huge, had a gas fireplace, and an enormous...

We live outside of the city but just wanted to escape life for a night. The hotel and staff were wonderful. I was disappointed that I couldn't get a spa appointment for the entire evening we were there nor the next day but will have to remember to book that before we get there next time.
