Red Lion Hotel on the River Jantzen Beach

Red Lion Hotel on the River Jantzen Beach

909 N Hayden Island Dr, Portland, OR 97217; Phone: 503-283-4466

NCER 2020 will be held at the Red Lion Hotel on the River - Jantzen Beach overlooking the scenic Columbia River, with riverside decks, a lobby bar and a double stone fireplace built into the lobby. Enjoy a variety of entertainment options such as a river cruise, fishing guides and jet skis. You can also take advantage of their free Energy Zone fitness center, tennis courts, or take a jog through the marinas. It's always a great day on the river!

The hotel is conveniently located just 9 miles from the Portland International Airport and 8.5 miles from downtown Portland.  We recommend driving or an Uber, as it’s about a 20-minute ride.

If you’re accustomed to mass transit, Portland has a world-class public transportation system called the MAX light rail, with 97 stations and 60 miles of track connecting the city, airport and region. The hotel offers a free shuttle service to the MAX light rail train station, or it is a quick Uber ride.

Just so there are no surprises, while the hotel has Jantzen Beach in its name, there is not an actual beach. The hotel is located on Hayden Island – and Jantzen Beach is the name of the large shopping mall and amusement park that used to be on the island. Although the locals all call Hayden Island, Jantzen Beach – the names are pretty interchangeable. Click here to learn about the history of Hayden Island.
