Outdoor dining and drinking on the Willamette River, downtown location, and hotel employees who strike just the right notes prompted us to book our next visit before we checked out. Every employee we met seemed genuinely interested in our stay including the valets, front desk, wait staff and housekeeping. All were pleasant, focused on making sure we had everything we... More

We had never stayed at a Kimpton Property prior to the Monaco a few years back so when we arranged to visit Portland again, we thought we'd try the Kimpton's RiverPlace. We certainly did not go wrong. Everyone at these hotels are very welcoming, from the front door staff, the desk clerks, restaurant personnel and even the housekeeping members. So... More

Recently stayed with a friend for two nights. Staff was incredibly friendly - Parker, a gentleman working the concierge area, was particularly informative and excited to tell me about places to see, eat at, and good routes to walk. Room was clean and spacious with lots of amenities. The bar/restaurant has good selection and hours. A bonus is the river... More

Thanks Colleen! Isn't Parker awesome! He just moved here from Utah but you would never know it from his great knowledge of the city. I am so happy to hear he took great care of you during your visit. We all hope to see you again soon. Ryan More

One of the best rooms we've stayed in. Great river view and super clean and comfortable. Extremely helpful and friendly staff, and great location. But come on guys, at $350 a night, charging an extra $35 to park the car is stupid. It sours the experience unnecessarily.

Hello ChrisHall, I am happy to hear you really enjoyed the guestroom accommodations and serviced offered! I would like to apologize that the cost of valet parking put a damper on things. We truly offer the cheapest valet parking rates out of any downtown Portland hotel and I maybe biased here but I feel our valet service is also the... More

My wife and I stayed at this Kimpton, for 2 nights on our tour of Washington & Oregon States, in a king size, river view room, on the second floor. This is now the second Kimpton hotel (The Argonaut; San Francisco was the first) we have stayed in and we have found the hotels to be excellent on both occasions.... More

Whenever we travel to Portland for a downtown event, we stay at RiverPlace Hotel. The location is perfect, especially for those who like a little open space, rather than the closeness of a downtown spot. Many places are within an easy walk, and the trolley line is simply two blocks away. And a stroll along the river is delightful. I... More

We recently stayed here a week while our young daughter was in hospital after an accident at a family wedding in Cannon Beach. The staff here were fantastic and helpful to a fault. The rooms were large and spacious and conveniently located on the waterfront and close to downtown. Would highly recommend.

We stayed for two nights with our kids in this modern hotel on the bank of the Columbia River. It is a bit off center, about ten minutes walk from the busy downtown shopping streets, but if you like a little quiet, the view of the water and the Riverfront park around - you would like this place. The prices... More

From the time we checked in until leaving for the airport we were in love with this hotel. The hotel is on the River Walk so a trip down the stairs puts you in the thick of Portland's eateries and marinas. No trip is flawless but RiverPlace went overboard to correct a small problem at the restaurant, Three Degrees. We... More

Hotel is new in a small redeveloped part of downtown along the river. Room was quiet despite being near downtown traffic. Room was on the small size for a suite and very oddly decorated, nothing very impressive about the room. Hotel location was good as an alternative to a downtown chain but was just as costly and no amenities. Nice... More

Thanks for the review and thank you for staying with us Peter. I would like to apologize that we left a little to be desired. We are always searching for value added amenities to offer our guest, from free bike rentals, to free yoga classes, and family friendly smores hours.
