The hotel is one of he nicest I have been in. Staff was very helpful. Loved the morning breakfast, and dinners during the week. Hotel is right along the Columbia River, several very nice restaurants in a block radius. I love staying here when in Portland!

From the moment my husband and I checked in to the day we checked out, everything was absolutely perfect and wonderful about this hotel. Need I say more? I don't need to, but I gladly will. The front desk, hospitality, and housekeeping staff were all very courteous, helpful, and friendly. Because my husband has trouble walking, they assigned us a room that was on the first floor and near the door to the parking area. The suite was expansive, very clean, and very comfortable. Very comfortable bed, too! We were there to attend major dog shows at the Portland Expo Center, which is only about a 10-minute drive away. This hotel welcomed our dog. There is a fair and nominal fee to have a pet at the hotel. But there was a lot of grassy area surrounding the hotel to walk our dog. (Our dog must have been comfortable at the hotel because he was relaxed and won at the shows!). As a bonus, the hotel offers complimentary daily hot breakfasts as well as evening hospitality M-Th. The menu was varied and changed daily. The food was plentiful and delicious. And......free beer and wine in the evening! I utilized their free high speed wireless internet in the room and in their basic business center. On another, and important, note, the staff went out of their way to assist me in purchasing a purse at a local dept. store since I did not purchase it when I stayed at the hotel. When I called the hotel after returning home to ask if someone could go to the store for me to purchase and ship the purse to me, they happily helped me out with it. Very special thanks to Leilani at the front desk, and Kari, the hotel manager for going out of their way to help me purchase this "gotta-have" purse. Also, thank you to Lorisa who provided great service at the evening hospitality and to Razija in housekeeping for doing an impeccable job servicing our room. We stayed one week at this hotel and everyday was just great. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel. I know we'll be staying at this hotel again whenever our travels take us to this area. 5 out of 5 stars in every way. Kudos to the hotel and staff. Keep up the excellent service!!

Great location, friendly and accommodating staff! This is one of our favorite HWS locations. We travel a lot for business and bring our two dogs along. This location is terrific to walk and exercise our boys along the water. It is very well managed and they have great attention to detail. Highly recommend them to anyone staying in the Portland/Vancouver area!

We had a king-bed suite on the third floor of one of this property's 4 buildings. The stairs are exterior to the building and covered. There is also an interior elevator. The rooms are all entered from interior corridors. It's necessary to walk outside for the free breakfast (daily), free supper (M-F), guest laundry, and business center.

The units are a stone's throw from one end of Vancouver's Waterfront Trail, a paved path that follows the Columbia River right into Vancouver's City Center, about 4 miles away. The airport is across the river, but the flight path is not directly over the hotel. Free Wi-fi is accessible from the rooms, which is a good thing, since the Business Center has only one computer and printer.

Our suite was incredibly spacious, with a full-size refrigerator, microwave, sink, dishwasher, and two-burner (I think) stove. The living room had two windows that open. The heating and cooling are controlled by a thermostat, so no room air conditioners to cycle on and off. The two TVs were HD compatible. Our only quibble with the furniture was the dining table that had to serve as a desk and was not compatible with the desk chair for height and comfort. The room also had a sleeper sofa and very comfortable upholstered chair with ottoman.

The bedroom had a dresser with six drawers, a comfortable chair, and two windows. The closet was double size, fully mirrored. The sink and vanity were separate from the toilet and bathtub area.

I guess the hotel expects most of its guests to eat in their rooms or dine out, because there weren't enough tables for seating at supper. A free meal really brings people in -- even if it's meatloaf, canned corn, and instant mashed potatoes. Breakfast was much, much better -- hot cranberry scones the morning we ate there. A small cafe is a block away if you'd rather have breakfast out. For lunch or dinner, two area favorites, Beaches Restaurant and McMenamins, are just across the parking lot. And Joe's Crab Shack is a fun, fun, fun place to go for a noisy, good time and great crabs. It's 1 or 2 miles down the road.

Our drive to the airport took only 10 minutes -- very convenient. This hotel is a great option if you want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet be less than 30 minutes away from any part of it (as long as you avoid rush hour).

We stayed here for 3 nights with our pup and were very comfortable and relaxed here. We had initially started out at the Residence Inn on the other side of the river and were so glad we found this place. As others have mentioned it is a minute away from the walking path along the river, there are 2 restaurants and a coffee shop within walking distance, the rooms are very spacious, beds are super comfortable, staff are mostly very friendly and welcoming, free wifi, business centre, pool (seasonal), hot tub, fitness room, laundry, breakfast and Mon-Thurs happy hour/dinner with drinks and lots of free parking. The hotel is located in a residential (condo) neighborhood and is safe and quiet. The pet policy is reasonable for short stays $35 initial fee and $10 per night thereafter.

A few others have mentioned some noise, we are quite noise sensitive and had very little issues with noise. We were even on the east side of the building (with shipyard of sorts behind wall of greenery) and only heard noise (sounds like semi running and doors opening/closing from time to time) from there during business hours and when we did it was minimal, if we closed the windows it was very faint - that being said, I do think we would ask for a room on the south (river) side of the building next time. Although the hotel is very close to the flightpath for the airport we only heard airplanes occasionally and it was not at all loud enough to wake us up. We did hear some footsteps from the room above us, but it wasn't that bad. Any noises in the hallway seemed to disappear once we stepped into our room.

The hotel is an easy 15 minute drive from downtown Portland, 40 minutes from the Woodburn Outlet Stores and 12 minutes from Portland International Airport. There is a Fred Meyer and strip mall across the highway from the hotel (may be difficult to walk to, but easy to drive to).

We loved the neighborhood feel, grassy areas and the closeness of the river and walking paths. The breakfast/dinner offerings makes it an even greater value and the roominess and layout of the suites makes it feel homey and comfortable. We highly recommend it and would stay here again if in the area.

The business center has only one computer with a printer that doesn't work. The staff did not know how to work it. Rooms are noisy.
