The hotel is under renovation and there are no other amenities other than a clean room. But the condition was nice enough. Location is great. Very quiet and close to downtown.

The River’s Edge is undergoing some top-to-bottom remodeling (not clear when the work is scheduled to be completed) and the ongoing renovation is creating some quality issues. One quality which doesn’t seem to suffer is the customer service. I have stayed here twice in recent days and the front desk staff (with special kudos going to Hillary) have been super friendly, accommodating, pleasant in responding to requests and helpful in answering essential questions relating to food, fitness, directions and where amenities (ice, snacks, water, etc) have relocated inside the hotel. The adage - “The cream rises to the top”, is true for customer service excellence when staff are bombarded with phone calls, guests checking in, guests checking out, guests needing to stow luggage, guests needing directions and guests needing special requests met….and most wanting their “needs” met without hesitation! I actually observed this firsthand when a front-desk staff member (Hilary) was swiftly and pleasantly giving her all in an example of some of the best customer service skills I’ve seen in a long time. Other staff were exceptional as well and not caving to the added stress and chaos an extensive remodel can bring. The rooms are ok and definitely in need of some upgrades. The only area I observed subpar quality in was room cleanliness. There were hairs in the shower/tub and the room refrigerator was in serious need of deep cleaning and odor removal. Both stays had cleanliness concerns.

We stayed in this property last November 2016 and we love it then that's why when we came back and visit Portland again we book at this hotel again, unfortunately our experience is not that great, first when we check in, they key card is not working so I go down and they replaced the keys, then I came up and open our room to our surprise the room is not ready yet, the beds are unmade, towels in the bathroom are all over the floor, a sure sign that the room is not ready for occupancy yet. So I call the front desk and told them the situation. We go down again at the lobby with our suitcases with us while the front desk fix the situation. In fairness the front desk people are nice and I just feel sorry for them to deal with this kind of mishaps that's beyond their control.

We enjoyed our 2 nights stay at the hotel! The staff there was very friendly and helpful. There's a lovely trail right behind the hotel, which was amazing since we brought our dog with us.

Because of it’s location, a new restaurant being added to the hotel, will be well received. A major, well needed, update I believe starts in September. The exterior balconies really need to be cleaned up. The closing of the Rosswood restaurant next-door hurt, but I understand a tenant has been found? Overall, it’s a pleasant experience, and Hillary is pretty much on top of things.
