Few good and bad things with our trip. The good, comfortable bed, good paid breakfast, nice pool. The bad, our view was of the parking lot, the room we reserved was supposed to be handicap accessible, but the shower/tub was standard size with a metal fold out seat from the shower wall, without a shower wand, the seat was slanted...

This is an older property in a relaxing location. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was a good size with a large tub though little counter space. There was also a small fridge and microwave. There are shopping spots and fast food places nearby. Parking is free which is a big plus for Portland hotels.

I was looking to book a room in this hotel. I logged onto their website and entered the dates, location, and number of people in the room for my visit. ON THEIR OWN WEBSITE they generated a list of available options with a rate for the night "from" $119. They then take you to a "book now". At that point...

Not what I remembered about the Red Lion on the river. Because of construction the entrance to the parking lot was difficult to find. Bathrooms needed cleaning. Unidentifiable stain on the tub, did not use. Sound from the airport less annoying than the Red lion at the airport but still there. Had to search for the ice machine.

Despite remodeling this hotel welcomes guests & front desk staff go out of their way to ensure we were looked after. Restaurant served excellent food, and wait staff were again pleasent . Housekeeping need a good kick. When you met them in the various passages, they always looked sullen. Our room was not fully serviced once during our stay.

The suite was large and had everything we needed. The property is a little older, but it was clean and spacious. Just don't try to sit on the desk chair. Horrible (but a small problem). The bed was very comfortable - always a big deal for us. So nice to have two rooms and a view of the river. Morning...

Staff was friendly and room was nice and spacious and great view of the river. Heater didn't work in room which was a bit uncomfortable at night. Restaurant was great and so was the pool and hot tub. Would definitely stay there again.

Nice hotel w/beautiful views of the Columbia River and the grounds are well maintained. My room was large and included a microwave and small fridge. The bathroom was also large. My biggest complaint is how far the elevator is from the front desk and it's also not well marked.
