I stay at the River's Edge Hotel on a regular basis for business and have had a consistently positive experience each time. I like the roomy accomodations, the high ceilings on the ground floor rooms, the abundance of berries and other fresh fruits at the continental breakfast, the delightful fruit-infused artisanal water available in the lobby, and the fact that you feel nestled in the woods if your room faces the tree-lined Willamette River. The staff are always charming ( a huge shout-out to bubbly Sarah at the front desk) and helpful and do all they can to fulfill my requests. Would agree with other reviewers that the décor is a bit dated, but it's more retro than old and I find it kinda cool - you just don't see hotels like this in cities on the East Coast or Europe. Having to crawl under the desk in my room to plug in my computer is a small annoyance and the greige carpet may be hiding stains I don't want to know about. Nevermind. What is more important to me are the great bed linens and towels and the fact that almost all the rooms in which I stay have a HUGE bathroom with a separate shower and tub. I always look forward to my return to this relaxing and well-run hotel and always sleep soundly there.
