About The Hotel

River's Edge Hotel & Spa Portland's Favorite Urban Retreat

UPDATE:  We are in the home stretch of our restoration!  The entire Riverside and front of the building are complete - no more scaffold in these areas!  The "facial" is continuing along the West side of the building and is still on track to be complete at the end of June.  Wow - what a difference - our hotel looks shiny and new!

***Starting October 22 – June 30, 2015, River’s Edge Hotel & Spa is getting a facial! We are starting our Exterior Restoration project which involves scaffolding outside the hotel over specific 30 room sections of the building, with other rooms untouched. Outside work will be done from 8AM – 5PM Monday through Friday. Noise will be expected during those hours. Scaffold rooms, and the immediate adjacent rooms, will not be occupied. All amenities and services remain fully operational, and there is no work being done inside the hotel, nor any work on Aquariva Riverside restaurant***

River's Edge Hotel & Spa combines upscale surroundings with warm Pacific Northwest hospitality. Guests of the environmentally friendly deluxe boutique hotel enjoy thoughtful service, modern amenities and the best of creature comforts.

Dogs are welcome at River’s Edge Hotel & Spa.

We offer pet-friendly rooms on 4 out of our 5 floors, and include access to all of our different room types and suites.  There is a one-time per stay, $50 non-refundable fee that goes toward deep cleaning the room upon your departure.   Up to two pets may share his or her human companion’s room.  

Note: Dogs may not be left unattended.

The city of Portland – with its trendy eateries, varied attractions and eclectic seasonal events – is a destination equally well-suited to business and leisure travelers. The “City of Roses” is also a city of parks (37,000 acres!) and bikes (250 miles of bike lanes!).

A lovely day can be spent at the nearby Columbia River Gorge taking in spectacular views of over 70 waterfalls; or, visitors might choose to while away the hours exploring the wares of Sellwood District’s antique dealers, browsing used bookstores on Hawthorne Boulevard or sampling the offerings of Portland’s abundant pubs and craft breweries.
