We had some issues reserving a room at this Kimpton Hotel centered on difficulties avoiding corporate inflexibilities but reached a human at the hotel desk who accomplished some compromises that lessened our discontent. When we checked in, of course, the keys didn't work but on the second trip to the desk HE arrived. Tim O'Dell, the Assistant General Manager, taking... More

We stayed here while dropping my son off for freshman year at Reed. The staff is so incredibly friendly and helpful I was blown away. Our room was on the river side and had a pretty little balcony overlooking the marina. The room was very spacious and quite pretty. Both the restaurant and bar had great food. Being able to... More

My wife, toddler and lab mix were looking for a hotel in downtown Portland which was pet friendly, family friendly and a convenient central location but enough off the main path to be quiet, charming and unique. RiverPlace is it and wonderful in every aspect! The river front location was great for walking the dog, provided easy access to all... More

We traveled to Portland for a family wedding and were told by family members that Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel was the perfect place to stay with our new puppy. They were 100% correct. EVERY staff person we met, from the parking staff in front, to the desk personnel, to the cleaning staff, and the servers in the restaurant, were genuinely nice,... More

We wanted to be on the waterfront as we didn't want to travel far for the views of the river. So after being there for two nights, I will not be bringing the family with elderly mother back. Upon arrival, the bellman was not helpful with helping her out of car, setting up her walker or our with bags. We... More

We've stayed at the Nines on other trips to Portland but wanted to give the RiverPlace a try. I will say that the location didn't disappoint -- the hotel is quiet and it has wonderful views with lots of opportunity for walking. With that said, our stay was very disappointing. In general, the hotel seemed very understaffed, as if they... More

Henry, I am very sorry for the disappointment you felt in our services. It is true we have been running a little lean at our front door, we had a team member lose a family member and they had to take some unexpected time off and we had trouble covering a few of their shifts.
