    The hotel itself was beautiful. It was right by the river and I was able to take my dog for a nice stroll… but for parking the hotel staff did warn about recent break-ins and during my one night stay it looked like 2 cars had their back windows shattered. Be careful.

    Great location, clean facility and friendly staff

    My pup loved the easy access to wonderful walks along the river.

    Good location, some drawbacks

    Excellent location in Portland—great access for all of our desired activities. Walking trail was really nice, along the river, 10 min walking distance to coffee shops, a few restaurants. Drawbacks. No pet potty area: one weed-y spot on hotel property with a no-dogs-allowed sign. Staff instructed us to go “next to the train tracks”. Inadequate linen in our room (3 guests), not enough towels, no linen for the pull out sofa. Multiple requests for linen before we received it. Balcony area not enclosed (partial cloth barriers in between different guest areas) which was a lil challenging with the pup. Property looks like it could use an update. $30/day for parking. No super explicitly dog friendly features…no dog dishes, treats, waste bags.

    False Advertising

    Disappointed. When we arrived there was no coffee maker or microwave. We asked and were told they were switching hospitality services and we'd have to request one the next day. Eventually we did get one, but it was a whole day later at night. Our room was dirty with lots of pet hair already on the floor. The headboard had slices in it - like someone knifed it. The front desk person wasn't helpful when we asked how to book some excursions. The bathtub/bathroom was nothing like in the pictures, which is why I had first booked that room. My Mobility SERVICE DOG was practically unwelcome. There were other pets staying there too. When asked about where to potty my dog, I was told to walk the train tracks. I found a grassy spot by the waterfront instead. There wasn't any handicap parking or valet available, so I was told to park on the street by the hotel which worked. There wasn't any maid service. Our room was never cleaned and I was told after our stay we had to ask for it. There wasn't any food or restaurant option like they advertised. The restaurant was closed and the spa was closed - which was another reason I booked with them. And, finally, there wasn't a pool even though the online advertising showed one. It was incredibly hot and all we would have liked was to cool off. The AC in the room made it feel like everything was always damp. I was also sad there weren't any dog bags, bowls, treats, or beds to welcome us like other pet friendly hotels usually do. Overall it was kind of a nightmare. I wouldn't stay there again. The falsely advertised and I should get my money back. I would rate them just slightly higher than a motel 6. Even the Best Western we visited on our way up was better! Don't book with them and don't bring your pet. Especially if you have a Mobility Service Dog or are handicapped in any way. Walking train tracks is not safe!

    Gorgeous River Views

    Stayed at River's Edge Hotel for a night, and had a lovely experience. Check-in was quick and easy, and the hotel team was friendly and helpful. They were very welcoming of my cat, Alice Cooper. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the balcony overlooking the Willamette river was great. I especially loved the door to the patio - it could be set up to open at the top like a window if I wanted some fresh air, but didn't want Alice to be able to get outside. Will definitely visit again.

    Riverside walks make this a special place

    Although we didn’t get a room with hillside views as advertised we did get a comfortable large room with plenty of space. But what makes this hotel so special when traveling with a dog is the easy access to the paved path that runs along the Willamette River, north into Portland and south to the Sellwood Bridge. Along the way are parks and even a large enclosed dog path. Perfect for long walks to take in the views. Really special and perfect for dogs and owners alike.

    Great location!

    The hotel was right in the river and had great walking paths for our dog. The hotel room was beautiful and immaculate. My only complaint is that you have to pay extra for parking that isn’t exactly close.

    This place was not only dog friendly, but people friendly too. A great value, great location. Dedicated dog area and walking path along the river. Fantastic!

    Peaceful Oasis with Riverfront Trail

    This is a great riverfront hotel. It has balconies overlooking the river and the riverfront trail, which is also awesome for doggy walks. Easy to take the dogs out for potty time. Also, great to sit on the balcony and watch everyone walk by. Also some great restaurants within walking distance.

    Room to run for ROVER!

    THE ROOM PHOTOS ARE NOT UP TO DATE. The hotel was renovated in 2017 and has new room decor--Great location at the edge of the Willamette River-Greenway Trail runs along side for miles- very dog-friendly community and staff. The restaurant has a special patio section that is great for people and dogs alike. And they keep a bowl of fresh water right outside for the many neighborhood hounds that pass by walking their owners on bikes or foot. VERY short walk to the edge of downtown PORTLAND which is just 2 miles from the hotel. Call in advance to let them know you are bringing your dog. They seem to like surprising. Ask for a pet-friendly room-they just renovated.
