We enjoyed our stay at the Riverplace....everyone was so friendly. Our room was great and the river is so pretty. We ordered room service the first night and OMG, the grilled cheese sandwich and fries were awesome. If back in Portland, we will stay here again.

UMMM grilled cheese and fries sounds so amazing right about now, especially being prepared by the 3 Degree Chef, Tom Dunklin. Thank you so much for the mention of the staff and the service they provided. Till next time! Ryan More

This is a great hotel. My husband and I are Kimpton members and are never disappointed with them. We arrived from the east coast rather late in the evening and were delighted that we had been upgraded to a suite. Both rooms were immaculate, the bed one of the most comfortable we have ever had, and, of course, wine tasting... More

this hotel was so welcoming and friendly, but also quiet and comfy, the perfect mix for me. Gorgeous river views, great food and wine, and a sense of real welcome, from the greetings and sendoffs by front door staff, to real people making my wakeup calls. overall it had a wonderful human touch i had not felt at the giant...

I've been to the Riverplace on several occasions and I can't say enough good things about this property. The location is great, the staff is exemplary, and the amenities are awesome. I don't sleep well in hotels but this is one where I have no problems sleeping. If you are looking for a weekend in Portland or a good place... More

So many hotels focus on everything but the sleeping part. I never understood that! We have upgraded all our beds and bedding to make sure our guest sleep like they would at home. Thank you so much for your review. Sweet dreams! Ryan More

Seldom does a luxury property achieve waterfront yacht club estate style seclusion while offering the accessibility of being just three or four minutes from downtown. And nowhere else that I know if is that special guest feeling so backed up by a whole staff so eager to be helpful any way they can - just so eager to be nice... More

This is a beautiful, high end hotel - room amenities could not be better, restful location near the river, excellent and helpful staff. What a nice find for a business traveler! My only complaint is that the restaurant food was not up to Kimpton hotel restaurant standards, at least not when I stayed there in early March 2015. It was... More

Hello Marykaz thanks for sharing your feedback! Sorry you didn't enjoy the dining month menu. I haven't yet tried it but the 3 course meal with the selection of items you can choose from for $29 looked amazing. So glad to hear you enjoyed the amenities and the friendly staff. Hope to see you soon. Ryan More

A few days ago I was driving to Portland from Grants Pass with my two kids ages 8 and 10. I knew we were going to be arriving to Portland around midnight and didn't book a reservation in advance because I wanted the option of staying in Eugene if I got tired. I had been researching hotels and had checked... More

RiverPlace has everything you would expect of a Kimpton hotel, namely nice, comfortable rooms and good extras, such as free nightly wine tastings. But what really made the experience great for us was (1) the location and (2) the amazing staff. First, on the location side, RiverPlace is right on the water, and near the Hawthorne Bridge, meaning that you... More

I love that you really enjoyed our location. I would have to agree that it does feel hidden in a way. We are so lucky to be in such a quiet and peaceful area but yet just steps from the heart of downtown, its truly unique. Thanks for mentioning the staff as being the other highlight. I'll be sure to... More

As with every Kimpton hotel I've stayed at - the staff keeps giving me a reason to come back. The hotel not only was of excellent quality and comfort, the location right on the waterfront made it feel as though we were staying in a hidden part of Portland, while still being within walking distance to everything. As with all... More
