“wonderful stay — we will be back soon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2011

Clean, comfortable, quiet rooms in a stellar location. Stroll along the river or into downtown. Friendly, helpful staff, eager to please. And a good value to boot. We were very impressed!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2011

We stayed here for our anniversary based on the trip advisor recommendations. The staff is friendly, the hotel is nice, and the rooms are great. The location is not centrally located downtown, but is along the waterfront. There are a lot of dining options along the waterfront near the hotel, as well as a boardwalk and marina. Parking is about $25, or you can street park if you can find a spot. They have an agreement with an athletic club about 3 blocks away if you want to work out. We used the club to go swimming and work out a bit.

Overall I recommend this hotel if you want to get away. If you plan on entertaining yourself downtown (bar hopping/fancy restaurant), maybe a hotel centrally located in the city would be a better option.

We really enjoyed our stay at the RiverPlace Hotel. The rooms were very clean and stylish. We travel with dogs and we were made very welcome.. The staff even rembered the dogs names. The park is handy for the early morning walkes. We ate 3 meals at the resturand and Bar. All were very good. We will be staying at the RiverPlace when ever we travel to Portland.

This is a nice place to stay but I can't say I share the enthusiasm that other reviewers did over this hotel. I think the location is great for a leisure stay and there are other attractions but I didn't think the rooms were noteworthy.

I had a large suite but the actual furniture and tv's were of average quality. My bed actually had sharp objects poking out of the mattress. The bathroom was quite nice however and had high quality accessories.

The hotel has an upscale restaurant and there are a few other restaurants nearby but not as many options as if you stay in the heart of downtown. They have an agreement with the nearby River Place Athletic Club so you can get a full workout in. Service was friendly but not exceptional.

I think this would be a good vacation destination (despite the negative comments), especially in the summer but I think there are better options in Portland in their price range.

RiverPlace is highly-rated and in all respects deservedly so. The location is right on the riverfront abutting a park area, the immediate neighborhood has a health club which allows hotel guests a daily membership (for lap swimmers the best time is about 8 a.m.) and - if you can get a reservation - VQ restaurant not more than two blocks away (go for weekend brunch but do reserve in advance) as well as - in the other direction - the free trolley to downtown.

The hotel though new is tastefully done (no faux rustification) with ample rooms and the dining areas are spacious but not overdone. Those with much hotel experience in the US will be surprised to find the restaurant Three Degrees serves innovative and savory cuisine; the menu features local, seasonal produce by local chefs, and the quality of both dinner and breakfast menus invites a return. So, too, happy hour at the bar is not to be missed, and the local wines (wine from Oregon? Oh yes...) are great.

We live in Asia throughout the year and I travel throughout that region for business, staying at great hotels in Asia, mostly local, small, particularized, boutique hotels. RiverPlace compares well with the best of 'em, and that's why it's the only place I stay when in Portland: Service, quality, value and unique experience. Our daughter lives in Portland and she, too, thinks this hotel is the best so there, a local's recommendation as well.

The location of the hotel to downtown Portland is wonderful. The river on one side and the city on the other, with so many things withing walking distance. The staff were so friendly and helpful with any questions we had. Rooms were very nice, quiet and clean with VERY comfortable beds. Half way through our stay we moved from a single room with 2 beds to a king suite where they even provided a feather bed to top the sleeper sofa. They are very dog friendly, even providing a few hours of doggie daycare at the front desk and recommending places we could take the dog with us to eat. Can't wait for the next opportunity I have to return to Portland and stay at the RiverPlace again.

We booked this hotel for one night while travelling to California. We were impressed with everything from the start. The lobby, the staff, the quality of the room and decor, and the restaurant, which had a fabulous half-price sale on drinks AND food in the early evening.
We would not hestitate to stay here again.
