A great hotel is one that gets better at every turn and is full of pleasant surprises. The Avalon is the opposite. We were disappointed in the quality of our stay. Breakfast was terrible: poor selection that was never restocked through the course of the morning. Having even toast or bagels would have been a nice addition. One morning the... More

In conjunction with an early morning medical procedure at OHSU Dermatology, we selected the Avalon for its convenient location. The experience was less than satisfactory. The room was clean and comfortable, but lacking anything special for the price. I expected to have more than one bar of soap for both the sink and shower for the price of the room.... More

We stayed 2 nights here and had no issues at all! The room was great, bed was comfy, location was good, etc. Service was not bad at all, besides housekeeping knocking on the door at 8:30am, just a bit early! The front desk was nice though & valet quick. We used Portland Perks so parking was free. We walked to... More

This is a fantastic hotel. Great location near the river. Easy walking distance to attractions and restaurants. We really liked the English taxi and they would provide you a ride and pickup anyplace. Free parking for anyone with disabled plates. Free wireless internet. The staff was extremely professional and exceptionally wonderful. Our room was awesome and had a balcony that... More

I am currently staying at the hotel with my 17 year old son while on vacation, room 404. We booked the hotel through Travelocity's Secret Hotel section and were not disappointed with what we got. It's a great deal, four star hotel, friendly staff, clean room, pleasant overall. I would stay here again in the future if some changes were... More

My wife & I spent an evening with the Avalon recently & had a wonderful time. Nice, quiet location located on the Willamette, helpful staff, full Continental breakfast, and nicely appointed room. Next time you're in Portland, give them a try!

The hotel is so beautiful, it's a shame the staff isn't a little more pleasant. I was moving from Arizona to Seattle, and decided to stay at hotel Avalon on my drive through Portland. I called the hotel several times to ask if my UHAUL could be accommodated, and was I told that it would be fine. When I showed... More

Stayed 2 nights w/3 high school juniors who were looking at local colleges. Very convenient to Reed and Lewis Clark colleges and Portland State. Very professional and courteous staff who would print out driving directions for me to get to these colleges. Beautiful, luxurious accommodations including the tranquil, zen like spa area, the comfortable beds are to die for, continental... More

We booked the Avalon for 2 nights primarily because of the discounted rate on priceline. The hotel was fine. The staff was friendly, the rooms were comfortable, a light breakfast (coffee, fruit, cereal, muffins, and yogurt) was included, and the hotel was right on the river. There were some drawbacks that would prevent me from choosing the Avalon again. The... More
