We arrived in the evening around 7-8pm, having drove up from CA with our two dogs in tow. Valets were helpful, as we unloaded not only our stuff but our two furry ones. Our suite was a Marina view King, which came with a kitchen, balcony, fireplace, and washer & dryer! I must say the washer & dryer was just... More

Stayed at RiverPlace Hotel in Portland the weekend of May 10 and was very pleased with our stay. The hotel is centrally located, very close to great restaurants like the Veritable Quandary, close to the Saturday Market, VooDoo doughnut and the river walk with easy access to public transportation. We arrived at the hotel early and our room was not... More

This past weekend was our fourth visit to the River Place Hotel in the past several years. It is a bit more expensive than many Portland Hotels, but the friendly service and convenience for going other places in the Portland area make it worth it. The rooms are comfortable, though some of the floor plans are a bit odd because... More

Positive: 1) The staff is amazing even by Kimpton standards: friendly, knowledgeable of local secrets, and helpful. 2) The rooms have charm. This place feels like a getaway from the city even though you are darned close to downtown Portland. Neutral: None. Negative: None. Elite recognition: Received an Inner Circle upgrade to a suite with a fireplace and river view.... More

This hotel is all about making money. It is located on the riverfront which offers a great view of the mini harbor out front. However, the room decor was garish and though the staff was very polite the hotel did not feel welcoming. The room was not very clean and there were hairs from past guest in the shower. It... More

We are a Kimpton Hotel so we do ask our guest to join our loyalty program to access the free WIFI.

We had a great, relaxing stay. The team was terrific and told us about a few stops we would have missed otherwise. Very helpful! The location is lovely, and the view of the river is amazing. We loved the options within a short walk. I recommend RiverPlace for any trip!

We initially chose this hotel because it was pet friendly. We've stayed twice now, and we'll definitely be back. Extremely friendly staff from the front desk to the valets, clean and beautiful rooms, and great location on the waterfront. Can't go wrong!

Loved the luxurious decor throughout the hotel. In addition to wine hour, we enjoyed s'mores on the rooftop deck! Staff were so friendly. Terrific fun! Beautiful location, really enjoyed walking near the river.
