Historical Traveler Reviews River'S Edge Hotel & Spa Portland
A peaceful place
I stayed here while in town on business. This was by far the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in that also offered a government rate that did not exceed the maximum allowed. My room was spacious and very clean and nicely decorated, although I didn't get a river view like one of my colleagues. The spa/gym facilities were exceptional and the staff made me feel right at home. I'd stay here again in a flash. Take a short walk to the far end of the parking lot and you'll find a great Mexican restaurant that is not visible from the hotel...
I was very disapointed with my stay here. You can get the same service and room in downtown for half the price. I thought for the price I paid, this hotel was lacking. The towel are not plush, room service was not that great. In my room the fireplace did not work. I strongly advice anyone to go somewhere else and spend your money more wisely. Nice but not worth the asking price
A Quiet Gem
Just returned from my 2nd visit to the Avalon Hotel & Spa. What a lovely place. So peaceful. Everyone on staff was wonderful. The river view suite was "apartment size" complete with fireplace. Local friends who visited while I was there all came away impressed.
Both visits I've also used the spa and had wonderful services there too. Fabulous massage & facial. Great service. Beautiful facility.
As others have noted, you do need a car as hotel is not within walking distance to downtown. But, it's an ez, quick drive. Another plus is the paved walking trail along the river for miles that you can get on right in front of the hotel. Makes for a great walk/run. Room service food was delightful and affordable. And an extra surprise was actually getting a thick Sunday newspaper too.
Not quite perfect, but close.
An upscale place but lacking just a couple of amenities for the price. I would really like to see an oversize tub in the bathroom. The view of the river is nice but blocked by many trees (maybe not bad). Also, the private patio is only private because a canvas divider separates each. Would be nice if it was a bit more private. The hotel is close to downtown but make no mistake, it is not within walking distance. It is a very quiet place though. Having said all the negatives up front, let me say the service is the best feature of this hotel. Everyone was kind and genuinely interested in making your stay nice. The free towncar service to downtown is great. They even pick you up, but make sure to reserve a few hours ahead. We also ate at The Rivers restaurant next door for our anniversary. It was okay but very noisy for an anniversary dinner. Overall, a very good hotel if you don't need to be right downtown.
Excellent, quiet, classy place to stay!
We were looking for a quiet, modern, romantic, upscale place to stay and the Avalon thoroughly satisfied all of those desires. The room was clean, very nicely appointed, and overlooked the river, and we particularly appreciated the spacious bathroom featuring a separate tub and shower. In the morning we could hear the honking of the geese and watch an occasional small boat on the river. The decor of the Avalon is minimalist modern and the staff were helpful and friendly without being pretentious or overbearing. The restaurant next door (Rivers) was also quite good and their staff was very welcoming.The Avalon is somewhat remote from center city Portland and can be tricky to get to, but unless you have a burning need to be in the heart of the city, I don't think you can beat the Avalon in terms of cost/benefit. And do check out the Spa!!
Beautiful place to stay
????Beautiful setting, good service, great spa, and excellent restaurant. ??? The town car made visiting other sites in Portland easy as we didn't have to worry about directions or parking.
Best stay ever, staff great,
frontdesk staff Aaron was above all supermagnificent .Glorious stay
Lovely hotel, close to OHSU
very very nice common areas and room, bathroom quite sleek, free internet access a big plus. Only negative is my room (not the most expensive) looked out on a generator ( the wooden fence encircling the equipment was about 8 feet from my window).
Relaxing place to stay
I found the hotel from the air port by taxi. It is a pleasant, relaxing environment. There is a nice walking path along the river, "best fish I have had in a long time" at the restaurant, and the spa was convenient to use.
Nice quiet place with no excitement
Lovely setting looking out at the river. Difficult to find. Location is far from town. Bathrooms nice; but, not clean. Rooms are pleasantly appointed. Spa is very nicely done. Restaurant has a beautiful setting by the river. Price is OK for the setting. The staff was friendly and polite; but there was no promotion or excitement about the hotel that I could see.

... no shame, and the people I was with have a good sense of humour. I'm not sure the stern faced bar person was very amused though. Oops. On the way home I noticed a huge mural painted on the road at a crossroads. I love that about Portland, there is art absolutely everywhere. I see something new every time I walk down a familiar street, let alone all the new streets yet unexplored.
Yesterday I went on a walking tour. It was good to learn some history about lovely ...
The drive to Portland on I-84 runs along the Columbia River and it is a beautiful drive. There is all kind of activity on the river between the huge hydroelectric power dams… tugs and barges, sailboats, power boats, windsurfing and paddle boarding. Nearing Portland and coming around a turn in the road suddenly I was faced with Mt. Hood in the distance… a beautiful sight of its own. The plan was to go to my aunt's apartment downtown and my ...
Happy Mother's Day! Today was a great day for the soccer match. Sadly the train that I was on got delayed because someone was arrested on the tracks in front of us. Since the train wasn’t going to be moving anytime soon; I, along with most other Timbers fans, decided to walk to the stadium. The walk ended up being about 40 minutes, and there were only two reasons I didn’t get lost; ...
... views from here were fantastic and it was great to see gorge from a good overlook as most of the time we spent here was in dense forest hunting for waterfalls and not seeing much else. When we were done here, we got back on I-85 towards Portland and took I-205 to I-5 in Washington State. Leaving Oregon, I saw a sign saying “come back soon” and thought to myself, we should be back in less than an hour! In ...
... we went to Target to get more supplies and food. After we out all of our purchases away, we went to dinner at BJ's Grille and Brew House. Then us kids went to bed and my dad drove for another hour to an RV park in Portland. Next stop: Redwood Forest in California! :) -Allisa ...
