We have been coming to the River Place for 5 years now, at least twice a year and the place never disappoints us. The service is great the rooms are very comfortable and the location is perfect.

A wonderful hotel in a great setting. From the moment we arrived we were treated as if we were old friends coming back. The front desk were friendly and helpful.

On a recent trip to Portland, we stayed, once again, at the wonderful Riverplace Hotel. Recently acquired by Kimpton, this hotel continues to have the best Portland location at the water's edge of the Willamette River and even better service. The staff is so friendly and caring it felt like we were visiting dear friends or family. The rooms are... More

Thank you for the comment about the clean guestrooms! I feel our Housekeepers don’t get enough credit for all of the hard work that goes into keeping the rooms spotless. I will be sure to read your review to them at our next daily lineup. More

Nights four and five our road trip through Oregon were spent at Kimpton's RiverPlace Hotel. We were immediately greeted by Tracy and Douglas who were super! Upon checking in we were treated kindly as was our dog, who was greeted by name! Our room, a river front suite was good sized with great windows facing the river and they actually... More

Being a Tripadvisor award winner we expected the RiverPlace to be good and it lived up to our expectations. We had a 3 night stay and we're happy that we decided to stay here for the following reasons. The hotel was centrally located to all the things we planned on doing in Portland and getting around was easy. The path... More

Have stayed twice in the River Front one bedroom suites. The location cannot be beat and the room was more like an Apartment! The hotel is also amazingly dog friendly. My dog was treated like a little king!

Just recently returned from spending two nights at RiverPlace Hotel, and I can say that it was a wonderfful experiece. When we arrived, we were upgrated to a riverfront suite--a beautiful 4th floor room overlooking the marina and river.

Having stayed at all 3 Kimpton Hotels in Portland OR, this is my favorite. All are great, but these folks are amazing. Each time I made a request--would like coffee pot placed in room, wanted to change daily newspaper, etc--the request was dealt with quickly and cheerfully. I stayed a week, but by day 3 I felt like I had... More

Life can be full of difficult choices, should you stay in and enjoy the luxury of the RiverPlace or go out and explore the sights and sounds of Portland. Glad you got to do a little bit of both this time around. Your review is going on our wall of fame. Thank you for your comments. More

Customer service & services at the RiverPlace are top notch. We stayed two nights and loved being greeted by name the first night for wine tasting as well as our second day at Three Degrees for great breakfast. Even our family meeting us for dinner recieved a warm welcome. Next time we are in Portland we don't have to look... More

Excellant service and a wonderful stay. We enjoyed the view and evening wine tasting. The hotel provided bikes and we rode throughout the city on some of the best rides in the country.

Glad to hear you took advantage of our bikes. We are now up to 7 bikes in our fleet. With summer approaching and with all the bike paths that surround our hotel I am sure it will be a top amenity this summer. Thank you for your great feedback. More
