We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights while on a combo business/leisure stay in Portland. What a lovely place! we had a king room facing the river and it was very comfortable, well-appointed and quiet, and looked just like the website images. My husband was up early most days and back late, so he really appreciated the on-site restaurant... More

Excellent location on the River. The staff is very attentive and the service as excellent. The happy hour of free wine and a few beers was a bonus. Room had a nice view. The room itself was small. If I didn't need the two double bed configuration then I think it would have been better. All in all it was... More

Well we love you too William. Thanks for trying us out and thanks for being such a Kimpton fan! Lets get you a nice upgraded suite the next time you stay with us, that should help with offering up some more space. Our Marina View Suites are condos and maybe the biggest accommodations in the city, not to mention all... More

The view is great. We had a river view which was the best part. The bed was nice. Good experience in general. The service wasn't overly good. The man that checked us in for valet yelled at us about where wee parked and never said anything nice to us any time we walked in. Not overly impressed with how we... More

We have a great time. The room was more beautiful than I imagined it would be. We had a fantastic view of the marina, river, and beyond from our balcony and enjoyed sipping the bottle of wine that housekeeping was kind enough to leave after we inquired about clean dishes being left in the dishwasher. The staff were super friendly... More

Thank you Sacha! Aren't those Marina View Suites awesome. From the sound of things you took full advantage of that deck overlooking the river with a nice bottle of wine. We are so lucky to be able to offer those units with that kind of space with those kind of views. Lets do it again soon. Safe Travels, Ryan (GM) More

We stayed here during 4th of July week, and while the waterfront was a bit hectic with the jazz festival that weekend, we could not believe our amazing view of the fireworks from our river-view room!

Thanks for bringing in the 4th of July with us! The Blues festival next door certainly does bring in a lot more activity to our normal peaceful neighborhood but it is an annual tradition for a great cause. All the proceeds over the weekend goes to the Oregon Food Bank. Glad to hear you enjoyed the firework show! We have... More

Just had a great 3 day stay at RiverPlace. Great location and excellent hotel. We walked to everything. They have bikes to lend, umbrella in the closet, binoculars for looking at Mt Hood and the river. Great place and super friendly people. The restaurant was great too.

Hi James, Thanks for the awesome review. Hopefully you didn't need to pull out that umbrella in the closet while you walked throughout Portland.

Lovely boutique hotel directly on the riverfront. The staff was very friendly and informative. Morning coffee and evening beer, wine, and sparkling cider included along with appetizers.
