“Beautiful views, large comfortable rooms, great first rate service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

This is a great hotel - not inexpensive but worth the money. Perfectly located, large comfortable rooms and a friendly, helpful and gracious staff. Our room faced the water and we enjoyed the sounds of the area whole appreciating the fact that the hotel itself was very quiet. When we return to Portland this is where we will stay.

We just finished up staying a week here and enjoyed our visit thoroughly. The staff were friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived - helping with logistics, suggestions - almost anything. it is very relaxing at the end of the day to sit on the patio and enjoy some of the food from Three Degrees- their restaurant on location. We had hummus and vegetables with local wines, along with some other appetizers. The hotel provides coffee in the morning, wine tastings in the afternoon, free bicycles to get around town (gotta get to them quickly as there are a limited number) and complimentary access to a health spa and club next door.

Thanks for the review and thanks for choosing the RiverPlace. We have just added 2 more bikes to our fleet and we should receive a cool new “Kona beer” bike shortly. You are right the bikes are huge hit with our guest and we are trying to keep up with the demand but we got you covered.

Our stay at this Kimpton property was memorable. We had a beautiful room on the 4th floor and absolutely loved it. Kimpton remembered my wife's birthday and there was a card a bottle of wine and chocolates waiting for her when we arrived. The room was large spotless well-appointed and beautiful. The bed was typical Kimpton ultra comfortable. Guests have use of the upscale health club down the block and there are bicycles to borrow in the lobby. I cant remember a more beautiful room. Oh yes the Burnham in Chicago ! Another Kimpton property. Of Course. Thank You Kimpton! You do great work !

Room Tip: I am certain that ALL the rooms are great !

My review is a bit different -- I didn't stay at RiverPlace but wished that I had. I crossed the street from my hotel to walk along the river and stopped in here on the way back for a glass of wine at the bar. A rounded room with a full view of the marina and the water was a natural place to strike up a conversation with some RiverPlace guests who could not say enough about how much they were enjoying their stay. I wandered around the lobby, talked with the staff at the desk about rooms, toured the public spaces and then walked the lawn in front of the hotel. As I headed back across the street, I realized that RiverPlace is where I should have made the reservation. You can't go wrong with a Kimpton Hotel, but this one is special with its great location and terrific staff. I enjoyed seeing Portland for the first time but realized the I had missed an opporunity. Next time at RiverPlace!

I'm super snobby when it comes to hotels! RiverPlace exceeded my expectations! I loved the decor and personal touched as well as the service. It was wonderful to have the New York Times delivered to my room. Don't forget to order room service - it is amazing!

Hey there is nothing wrong with being a snob when it comes to your hotel accommodations. Everyone should be. Glad that we exceeded those expectations. See you soon,

Over the years I've stayed at Portland's RiverPlace Hotel on numerous occasions, never to be disappointed.
Our visit this past weekend was awesome. The rooms and public spaces are completely refurbished (and their decorator is to be commended). Absolutely beautiful.
It's clearly evident that the staff enjoys their work. Everyone is helpful and friendly - no matter the task. We attended a dinner party in the hotel's private dining room which was like dining in a 5 star restaurant.
I simply cannot say enough about the pleasant experience of staying in this lovely hotel; perfect location and view - wonderful spacious rooms - elegant (but not stuffy) bar and restaurant - smiling, friendly staff. and even fresh lemonade upon checkin. Please take my word for it, you owe yourself the pleasure of making this exquisite hotel "your home away from home". You'll be glad you did.

Room Tip: It's worth it to pay a little more and have a riverview. Wonderful ambiance throughout the en...

Good Friends of ours from Virginia met us in Portland (we traveled from MN) for along weekend. I was in charge of finding our hotel. Since I've had such amazing stays at other Kimptons I started with their hotels. I called and spoke with Samantha who answered all my questions honestly. After a lot of discussion and listening to what I was looking for she recommended the River Place. In addition she offered to send me information on local attractions, wineries and activities. We received all the promised information within a week. Once we checked into our pristine river view rooms we were greeted by a lovely note and a bottle of wine. Off to a great start!!!!
That evening we asked Kelsi for Dinner recommendations and had one of the more amazing dinners of our lives. But wait there is more, every night, every recommendation was better. Everyone from the doorman,wait staff, front desk & Housekeeping were over the top friendly and helpful. They all have been trained beautifully and have a very pleasing "can do spirit".
