“Never a bad stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Residence Inns are always a great place to stay and the Residence Inn Downtown/River Place is no exception. I have stayed here a few times now for work and always look forward to the stay. The rooms are always clean, the staff are friendly, and the location cannot be beat. The entire downtown area is a 15 minute walk with riverside restaurants and cafes much closer. Parking is always a trial in Portland, but the Residence Inn has convenient onsite parking. In room internet (both wired and wireless) are fast and reliable.

Room Tip: If you enjoy walking/jogging/or running bring your shoes. There is a beautiful trail that runs along...

I loved my stay at this hotel. It was easy, quiet, well-appointed and steps away from the streetcar. It isn't exactly "downtown" but given the price I got by bidding, well worth the distance. Check-in was fast and friendly. The room was spacious, clean, and looked brand new. The bathroom was somewhat small, and not as nice as the rest of the room.

Breakfast the next morning was great-- plenty of food, and beverages. Waffles, eggs, sausages, biscuits and gravy, plus cereals, yogurt, bagles, muffins, etc.

Check-out was bit slow, but bearable.

Watch out for the $25/night parking. There is limited parking on the street, though, and I will try that next time.

Room Tip: There is a freeway right behind the hotel, but I didn't hear a thing. Ask for a river view.

We have stayed at this property many times - for work, festivals, hospital visits & just for fun! It's in a great location - walking distance to the Pilsner Room at McCormick & Schmick's, where they feature Full Sail beers! It's also across the street from the trolley which can connect you up with anything in Portland. We love this place!

I stayed for several nights in October 2012. I liked the place and its friendly staff. Attended a meeting in the meeting room in 2nd floor. A pretty nice room. My room was a really good one with a kitchenette. Despite my room was far from the elevator, it did not cause a problem. Overall, it is a good hotel to stay in when in Portland.

My work colleague and I came from NZ to attend the Far West Show. The suite had two bedrooms and ensuites that suited ue perfectly,was well maintained throughout the seven days we were there.The breakfast menu offered a wide choice to start ones day. The hotel shuttle expediated us to the convention centre, with the car park safely securing our hire car.The hotels location is handy to waterfront cafes, restaurants and walking distance to central Portland.There is also a Street Car stop very close to the hotel. As we were there for a week we developed quite a rapport with the staff who ensured our stay was memorable, so a special thank you to Felix, Taylor and Parker for all your assistence

Room Tip: A room that is quiet and at night no street lighting is to get in, so good drapes. Oh and bring your...

Good hotel that is located slightly outside of downtown Portland. Have to pay for parking so add $25 per night minimum for parking. Large rooms very clean with typical Residence in efficiency styling. I like this hotel because you are not trapped downtown and there are several good restaurants within walking distance and there is a commuter train station just outside the front door.

Room Tip: There are expressways outside the back of the hotel so if you need really quite rooms ask to be at t...

After much searching on Google, my daughter finally found the Residence Inn. So many hotels in Portland do not have a pool/spa, but that is one amenity I wanted. The staff were all very nice and helpful. The room was an immaculate one-bedroom with a livingroom area and kitchen. Two flat screen tvs grace this room. The breakfast had something for everyone. Although I didn't bring my German Shepherds, the hotel is pet-friendly. Location was easy exit from freeway to hotel, and it is located just at the edge of downtown. I have learned that some hotels in Portland do not offer parking; others offer parking, but at a steep price. The rate here is $25 per day/night stay--a small price to pay for peace of mind. Although this hotel is very close to a main thoroughfare (on the bridge), the noise was minimal and didn't prevent me from having an excellent sleep. This was my first stay at this hotel, but I will be back. Most enjoyable!
