Why We Love It
- Picturesque river bank setting, 10 minutes' drive south of downtown Portland
- The spa is a real draw -- it’s a "lavish two-story affair", says Sunset magazine
- There's free bike rental and it’s close to the Willamette Greenway Trail and Marquam Nature Park
- The Zagat-rated Italian restaurant has great river views and Portland’s only build-your-own bloody mary and mimosa bar

OverviewNestled in a surprisingly rural setting only 10 minutes’ drive south of downtown Portland, River’s Edge Hotel & Spa is a modern riverside retreat. It is positioned on the fringes of the trendy South Waterfront District (Portland’s newest neighborhood) and is a short walk from the Aerial Tram (15 minutes’ by foot through Elizabeth Caruthers Park) and Butterfly Park (30 minutes down the river). Downtown is not really walkable, but the hotel will soon be offering free one-way transfers into the city center -- just ask at reception when you check-in.
The biggest highlight is the full-service spa. It’s a “lavish two-story affair”, according to Sunset magazine, and opening hours run from 5:30am-9pm. There’s also a spacious, fully equipped 24-hour fitness center. Borrow one of the hotel’s free bikes and explore the Willamette Greenway Trail or head for the hills in neighboring Marquam Nature Park, where there are 40 miles of jogging trails and 178 acres of parkland.
With a farm-to-table ethos, Aquariva serves wholesome Italian food, like farro risotto and braised lamb ragu, and has received praised from Zagat for its “delicious, creative and moderately priced plates”. There’s a daily happy hour (3-6:30pm), or visit on Sunday to create your own bloody marys and mimosas at the city’s only self-service bar. The riverfront position is “one of the most scenic dining locations in Portland”, says Fodor’s -- grab a seat on the outdoor terrace if you can.
Chic and comfortable, rooms are carpeted, beds have cozy quilts and bathrooms are well equipped with both a bathtub and a shower. Opt for a suite for a separate sitting room, where you can curl up in front of the gas fireplace in cooler months. Large windows make the most of the countryside, wooded or river-bend views, and many rooms have balconies. Pets are welcome (extra charge applies) and the hotel has dedicated dog-friendly rooms.
- "Aquariva, an Italian restaurant and wine bar on the premises, serves wonderful tapas and drinks" -- Fodor’s
- "The hotel rooms are stylish (and some have sweet river views), while the spa is a lavish two-story affair offering a wide range of treatments" -- Sunset
