Not only is hotel located right off interstate. It it is also on the airport flight path creating quite abut if noise. Military fighter jets were buzzing the hotel each morning of our stay making crazy amounts of noise and shaking us crom bed Otherwise hotel was nice. Staff were very friendly and beds were comfy. Views of river and walking path along the river were nice.

Thank you for your comments about your recent stay with us. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the comfort of the bed and cleanliness of the room. Given our location is on the airport's flight path we do have the occasional military flight --- but typically they are mid afternoon. We are sorry that you experienced earlier than this typical time.

Again, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others and we hope to have the pleasure of being of service to you in the coming year.

Happy Travels!

We have been staying in downtown Portland, eating in the Pearl district. This time, we had a long drive, and chose the Red Lion to be "in and out" quickly. We got a very good rate, an excellent room with a view over the pool and river, and a nice little balcony. We noticed the airplane flight path, but soon forgot about it. Rather than drive to a restaurant, we chose the in-house "Bar and Grill", got a table by the window, and were in heaven. My wife's Martini was ordered "dirty", and was excellent, while my house red was very satisfying. We ordered burgers and fries, and while no great culinary challenge, they were perfectly to our liking.
The Red Lion Jantzen Beach - what a delightful surprise. We are sure to return soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room, away from the bridge.

Thank you for taking time from you travels to tell others of your experience here at Red Lion Hotel on the River - Portland, Oregon. I will be certain each member of the team in our restaurant, Jantzen Beach Bar & Grill see the specific comments you made -- as a martini drinker myself, if you know how you want your martini, there is little more satisfying than getting as you ordered it! We have a great team in the lounge and Chef Lorenzo has put together a terrific pool of individuals in our kitchen.

From looking at your experiences it is clear you travel and we also know that when someone travels today there are many choices...on behalf of our entire team at Red Lion Hotel on the River I want to say thank you for selecting us. We do hope to have the honor of being of service to you on your next trip to Portland, Oregon.

Perfect area, beautiful waterfront with a nice walking path around the small island. We brought our 9 month old daughter along, the rooms were very big and very clean, so it was nice for her to crawl around and play. The food at the bar and grill was excellent with a beautiful view of the Columbia River. The hotel was quiet as well! We wished we could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: Even if it's 2 people get a room with 2 queen beds! The rooms are HUGE!

We had an unexpected trip to Portland in December 2010. This hotel had good rates and was cooperative with our credit card needs. Check in was easy, and we found the double queen room to be enormous and very comfortable. It was clean and overall a great experience. We stayed at another Red Lion the next night in downtown Portland, and oh how I missed this one! Worlds apart.

I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Short drive to Portland convention Center. Rooms with fridge & microwave. Safeway across the street. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Best Red Lion yet: Jantzen Beach.
