This hotel is a bit hard to get to but the location makes it worth the effort. It is steps from a beautiful, quiet walkway along the river. And the restaurant, Aqua Riva, is also right on the river so it has very nice views. Breakfast was very good. My favorite part of this hotel is the spa. This place... More

Staff was better than most. Nice to be near the river trail. Room was excellent except for control of the heating equipment. Double vanity would be better. Exercise and spa facilities were great! Parking was an issue considering location from attractions and proximity to downtown.

Do not waste your money on the Junior Suite. Very small. You are better off either getting a suite at the Marriott and having a full kitchen or spending the extra on an actual luxury hotel. Definitely not close to downtown if you would like to walk. The hotel only does Valet.

Hi Nicole, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you felt our Junior Suites are too small. You had envisioned something in your mind, that we do not offer. None of our suites have kitchens, and only three of them have wet bars (Deluxe Riverside Suites). I checked the information on our website, as well as our... More

Spent the weekend here for a EWU/Portland State game. Accommodations were very nice; however, I did note the furniture was a bit battered (i.e., chipped wood on the legs of chairs, cigarette burn in the pad for the deck chair, worn carpet), but clean. The bathroom, however, was very cool and very large. The TV was fantastic (big/clear), and it... More

River's Edge Hotel and Spa is a wonderful hotel, and I would definitely stay there again. The hotel is clean and the staff is incredibly friendly. I got upgraded to a suite based on availability, which had a wonderful balcony. There is a complimentary shuttle for places close to the hotel and it was close to OHSU, where I went... More

I'm a little surprised by both the overly positive and overly negative reviews. River's Edge is a nice hotel, based on my last two stays there, but nothing special. I rate it four stars, mainly because of the pretty views of the river (partly screened by trees) from one side of the hotel. Rooms on the other side, with views... More

We were so pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the river's view and the amenities offered with our stay. They have a top-notch spa with Eminence (my favorite) products and complimentary use of their steam, sauna, jacuzzi and showers, as a guest. Most hotels charge you if you are not getting a spa service. The restaurant, Aquariva, is outstanding. We... More

Depends on what you're looking for. . . Was in Portland for a weekend with friends. We needed a room with a common area and a sleeping area. We had the bedroom, the sofa bed (which my friend claims was quite comfortable because it is a foam bed not a spring pull out) and a cot rolled in. Worked out... More

Overall the River's Edge is a nice property. The room was spacious, reasonably clean (shower had mildew issues) and quiet. Bed was very comfortable. Service is friendly, although not much more than that. There is room service but times are limited as is menu. Really needs more casual dining options. I was in town to visit a patient at OHSU...
