Where to start for the Kimpton RiverPlace - the location - Amazing views across the marina and Willamette river. Hard to beat. Wine and cheese platter on arrival after a long flight was a lovely welcome (yes, I know we paid for it but it was worth it). Staff were relaxed and helpful. We upgraded for this part of our...

We stay at a lot of hotels...all over the United States. But there are none, even including the few we've stayed at within the Kimpton family of hotels, that come close to the total "home away from home" experience we have had, each and every time we check in at RiverPlace. And further, we live in Portland! GM Ryan Kunzer... More

I fell badly seeing so many glowing reviews of this hotel, and I will admit that it has many things going for it, a great location, wine and appetizers in the lobby, friendly and helpful staff, BUT; its the little things that make a difference; especially when one is in a suite with an expensive nightly rate. Our room overlooked... More

Hi Bluegoose Thank you for this feedback. I agree completely, it is the little things that make a difference and I often preach the importance of the small details to the team. I am sorry we let you down. I just hate reading how easily we could have made your visit more enjoyable and we missed the mark. We will... More

This hotel has two main features that will make you have a wonderful time during your stay: the people, and the location. The staff is amazing, and the valet parking guys get a 6 stars. The location is outstanding, surrounded by a gorgeous view and 8 minutes driving from downtown. Hard to think how this hotel can be better. Thanks!!

We loved our stay here. The room was gorgeous, with separate sitting area almost a suite, and our dog was made welcome with a canine guest pack on arrival. The property is right on the river walk, with beautiful views, and luxury appointments. Staff were universally friendly and accommodating. On the edge of the main downtown area, the hotel is...

Overall a nice hotel but getting there seemed to be challenging for our drivers. It is a nice location on the water but away from the downtown. It can be a bit noisy in the area around the hotel depending on any events happening. Valet service was very good and quick. Front desk was friendly but could be more welcoming.... More

When it comes to hotels I really do like fast and friendly service, good beds, great light, a wonderful view, and fresh air if at all possible. This outstanding hotel has it all.

Great location to explore downtown Portland. Lovely views of the river and the downtown. Within walking distance to OMSI, Portland Art Museum and Max Lite Rail. With Max Lite Rail, it is easy access to the zoo, Children's museum, Japanese garden and International Rose Test garden.
