This hotel sits in a perfect location for exploring Portland and the surrounding area. The staff is helpful and attentive and they provide every amenity possible to make your stay comfortable, fun and carefree! Since it is a Kimpton hotel, you can expect the best!

One of my nicest hotel experiences in a long time. The staff is wonderful, so knowledgable and will go out of their way for you. The hotel is in a nice location and the rooms were so comfy and clean. Very luxurious. Huge bathroom. We did not book a river view but opted for a suite with a pull out... More

My friend and I stayed at the RiverPlace Hotel in mid-June for 3 nights. Although I'd been to Portland before, nothing compared to this wonderful boutique hotel. From the Northwest touches in the furnishings in the lobby to the amenities in the room, nothing was left to chance. The views from the room and restaurants were superb. We were entertained... More

Nothing is better than sitting out on one of our rocking chairs simply watching all the joggers and bikes cruising by while you do nothing but enjoy the view of the gorgeous river and bridges. Yes it can make you feel lazy but hey who cares when you are so stress free! More

I have stayed at the RiverPlace several times since operations have been assumed by Kimpton. Everything has been outstanding. My recent stays have found me in southeast facing rooms. These units have big and bright bathrooms with bay windows overlooking the river (and high quality dual head showers). The rooms are very large with a living room area separate from... More

Great feedback! We just might have the best views of any hotel from a bathroom!! We even had Travel and Leisure magazine just come out to take a few photos of that view. Just to clear up your comments about the courtyard rooms; some of them maybe larger than others but we also offer those same room types with the... More

During our recent trip to Portland, my wife and I decided to stay at the new Kimpton Properly, the RiverPlace. We wanted to bring our dogs with us and Kimpton is a pet friendly hotel. We have stayed at many of the Kimpton properties and the RiverPlace looked nice because it was right on the water and near the riverfront... More

Sounds like you, the wife, and the dogs had a great stay. I would like to apologize for the slow service while trying to settle up your bill at our bar. I will share your review with the restaurant General Manager and we will use your feedback to improve upon the speed of our service. More

We love Kimpton hotels because of their charm and pet-friendliness. This hotel was over the top, though! Every single staff member with whom we interacted was friendly and helpful, and I have never seen this level of pet-friendly. Aspen, our golden retriever, was treated like a VIP! She got to hang out with the front desk staff while we went... More

The hotel lived up to my expectations. Great location, nicely appointed, and a wonderful staff. One thing, and it was not the hotel's fault, there seemed to be an organized boat party at marina directly in front of the hotel. All afternoon and well into sunset, the loud, obnoxious sounds of a party and rap music (I use the term... More

Thanks for your review. The boat party you were referring to was a onetime event that a local bar organized. To be honest in the 10 years I have lived in Portland I have never seen an event like this one. As one of our employees put it “It looks like my worst nightmare” Rest assure our hotel is usually...

This is just a great hotel in every respect. The location is outstanding, the staff is fabulous and will do anything they can to make your stay more enjoyable. The hotel was full, yet it was quiet and peaceful. The wine hour is a joy and a nice way to meet other guests. Rooms are nicely appointed and very comfortable.... More

We spent two nights in Portland before departing on a three day excursion of the Oregon Pinot Noir growing area. We have stayed at this hotel on several prior occasions, and this experience was one of the best. The staff is extremely attentative, and it was very nice to be recognized as repeat customers. We also chose to upgrade our... More

Thanks for returning to the RiverPlace to act as home base for your wine tours. We are just a hop, skip, and a jump away on I5 south and 99 West to get you in the heart of Pinot country. You then get the best of both worlds as you can come back in the evenings and enjoy downtown Portlands... More

This was our first time to Portland, and it was a birthday celebration - so I had high expectations, all of them were exceeded by the hotel and the city. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. They each went out of their way to make us feel taken care of with information about the city, transportation options, restaurant suggestions,... More
