This is my third time to stay at River's Edge and I love it every time. The guest rooms are quite nice, the employees are so service oriented and the spa is fabulous. I have only stayed in the riverside rooms, so I cannot speak about the hillside rooms. I love the balconies on the riverside. The new large flat... More

Nice hotel. Nice rooms and a good view of the river. But if you're wanting the city experience it's not really walkable. On the other hand, if you want to escape from the city and not travel far, this is the place. Pretty good value. Friendly staff. $25 valet, and as far as I can tell that's the only parking... More

Scenic and relaxing yet truly minutes from all that PDX offers. Make sure to get the river view- each balcony offers a lovely setting over a greenway trail. You look into trees and the Willamette sparkles beyond them. We had excellent staff greeting us and meeting our needs. The restaurant was a bonus surprise. We were lucky with a warm... More

This hotel could be truly outstanding. But, it's not. The setting is incredibly beautiful. The pictures really don't do it justice. But, the service could hardly be worse. I had no soap in my room and when I called the front desk, the agent replied, "I know. We ran out." He then suggested I go to a store down the... More

two days in Portland and we picked this hotel because it was out of the busy city with a great river view and on site restaurant. The food was great, the spa was great, but the best perk was an amazing staff! Everyone was friendly, real, and had a casual professionalism that was very impressive! Would go back in a... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel. The staff was courteous, and pleasant, and always ready to help with suggestions. I would highly recommend upgrading to the "river" rooms which have a really nice view of the lake. They also provide comp bikes and have a great biking trail. They also have drop off service to the downtown portland... More

Hello Hidden Gem Finder! Thank you for saying such wonderful things about our hotel - they are all true! However, I feel horrible about the way your stay ended. I realize that the service you used is not part of River's Edge Hotel and Spa, and it's an independent company that we have no control over, however, we did refer... More

Everything here is done well, and done on a low-key vibe. It was a great escape from my NYC life, if only for a long weekend. The spa is amazing, and i look forward to returning primarily for that reason. Spacious, clean-designed, well equipped rooms. Mine had a flat screen TV, so i don't know why others complain about not... More

I went to this wonderful spa and hotel to simply relax. Three hours away from Seattle with beautiful guest rooms that overlook the lake and lovely in room amenities I couldn't refuse. I also took advantage of the wonderful spa, where I soaked in the whirlpool and had a brief spa treatment. Aquariva was an amazing dining experience, where I... More

Hi Cici_007 (I'm thinking James Bond - love those movies!), It sounds like you really had a good dose of "me" time while you were here! I'm so happy to hear that you were able to relax, unwind, and enjoy your stay with us. The fact that you were able to take in the Spa, Aquariva, and the hotel all... More

From this spot, one has easy access to all of Downtown Portland. The hotel was easy to find.. Pillows and bed were comfy. The parking is a challenge, only valet available at a cost of $25 per day. We did not have a view of the river, but we did not stay at the hotel other than to sleep and... More
