PORTLAND – January 12, 2017 –HRI Lodging, LLC (HRIL), an affiliate of HRI Properties, and River’s Edge Hotel & Spa has named Paige Carlson as its new Director of Sales for the 99-room boutique hotel in Portland.

Carlson re-joins the hotel after previously serving as its Director of Sales from 2013-2015. She has also served in executive hospitality sales positions for such properties as The Nines, a luxury hotel collection also located in Portland, and almost eight years at The Phoenician resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. Carlson will oversee all aspects of sales and marketing for the hotel, including training, developing and coaching sales teams to understand and exceed Revenue, RevPAR and Sales Productivity Goals. 

“We are tremendously excited that Paige has re-joined the River’s Edge team. I know firsthand that her extensive luxury boutique and resort experience, strong sales and marketing background, and knowledge of the unique Portland area, including, notably, the PDX and South Waterfront communities, will be invaluable as the hotel undergoes a renovation in 2017,” said hotel General Manager Antonio Recillas.

Located in the rapidly growing South Waterfront district, River’s Edge is a destination in its own right, offering a luxurious 13,000-square-foot full-service spa and salon, spacious fitness center, 3,000 square feet of multi-use event space including an executive boardroom and an award-winning waterfront dining experience at its restaurant Aquariva.

Nearby Portland attractions include the Greenway Trail, a scenic biking/walking/jogging path that extends south of the hotel for 2 miles and north to Portland city proper; the nearby Columbia River Gorge with spectacular views of over 70 waterfalls; Sellwood District’s antique dealers; used bookstores on Hawthorne Boulevard; and the abundant pubs and craft breweries often associated with Portland. Approximately three blocks from the River’s Edge location is a streetcar stop that takes passengers into downtown Portland and the hotel offers complementary shuttle service to various areas of downtown and the South Waterfront/McCadam business district.
