We stayed over July 4th and had a very positive experience. The staff is very attentive and honestly met our every need. The bed was very soft and comfortable. I liked the little things, such as the nice cold water with fruit in it at the front, the coffee, the free DVD's at the front desk, the complimentary toiletries I... More

Thanks for that great tip. During the 4th of July weekend there is one of the largest Blues festivals in the country right outside of our front doors. It’s a wonderful event but if you aren’t staying for the Blues music its best to select a courtyard view. Thanks again for the great feedback. More

My husband and I frequent this hotel a few times a year. The staff has always been great. I think changing to a Kimpton hotel has even made it better. They keep adding more things to make you feel at home.

We were amazed at the level of service this hotel provided to us. From the friendly greeting the moment we drove up to the hotel to the warm cookies and helpful hands the morning we checked out! All of the staff here were extremely friendly and accommodating to our needs. The hotel itself is beautiful and modern. We loved being... More

I spent 2 nights at the RiverPlace Hotel. From the moment I stepped out of the car and walked into the Hotel I was greeted with a warm welcome from the hotel staff. The decor and layout of the property is warm and inviting. The rocking chairs on the outdoor "porch" overlooking the waterfront park were comfortable and felt like... More

We recently stayed at the Riverplace for two nights. From booking the reservation to arrival and departure, the service was far above what we have (sadly) come to expect. How refreshing! The valets in particular were most helpful and accommodating as we were driving a small RV and towing a small trailer too. They "reserved" a spot for us and... More

Our daughter graduated from Concordia University in Portland and when we came to visit we always stayed at the Waterfront Marriott. We would look at the RiverPlace from our hotel and converse on the great location and how it looked. Last month we stayed there to see if we wanted ourselves and our family and friends to stay there for... More

This hotel looks awesome on their website, but reality is the opposite!! The rooms are dirty and are very rundown!! We have stayed at several Kimpton properties and have always had a great experience. We were shocked at the state of this one. I spoke with the manager to explain our dismay at the dirt, cracks in the shower grout,... More

This does sound like an amazing 4th of July. Wine, Blues, patio rocking chairs, fireworks and you didn’t even have to leave the hotel. See you next year! More

We stayed in a one-bedroom suite at the RiverPlace for business and were able to check-in early. The concierge and valet attendants seemed genuinely pleased to be assisting us.

Stayed at this property 3 days and couldn't of been more pleased. Super quiet rooms despite a rather lively bar scene. Felt like I was the only occupant on my floor until I saw all the daily newspapers hanging on fellow travelers doors in the morning. Joined the loyalty program, got upgraded, free wifi and $10 snack/refrigerator credit. Many nice... More
