Expert Review

It’s either a hidden gem or just plain out of the way depending on the kind of location you’re seeking, but this architecturally sleek hotel perched just south of Downtown wins raves for its views of the Willamette River. It also works its comfort mojo with Spa Chakra, an onsite wellness facility offering more than 60 health and beauty services. Guestrooms are tasteful and unfussy, but request one with a waterfront view. Restaurant Aquariva offers up al fresco dining with views of Cottonwood Bay.
