I had done a lot of research prior to booking and decided upon River's Edge. My decision was made based on the fact that I got more bang for my buck, being that it's not located in say downtown Portland.
I'm in my early thirties but have been mistaken to be much younger, most of the staff I encountered were easily in their 20's. Oftentimes when dealing with younger individuals the level of professionalism isn't the same as it would be for an older person, but I was treated with the utmost respect by these young employees and also by those who were older than myself.
I rented the Deluxe Hillside Suite to spend my Christmas in and it was beautiful. I didn't even leave my room, it was over 700 sq ft, with a fireplace, a dining table for 6, separate shower and luxurious bathtub, floor to ceiling windows that wrapped around and my own personal balcony. Being that this was my first time booking a hotel room I had planned to take a visit before doing so, I wanted to be sure that I was getting my hard earned money's worth. Had I visited I might have thought twice about it because the location didn't seem so great and there was construction going on, I'm very happy that I saw past that upon my arrival because I was quickly reassured once I entered the hotel.
