We travel to Portland a couple of times a year but this was our first stay at this hotel. We arrived in the pouring rain (it's Portland after all) and were greeted by a friendly staff. The check-in process was simple and the staff was "dog sitting" for a fellow guest. quite charming. The hotel, though a bit dated in...

I stayed one night and wished I could stay longer. I do not travel for work a lot, but I find the Kimpton loyalty program fantastic- there are perks right away compared to other programs. The hotel is right on the River, the walking trail passes right beside it. I was upgraded to a 1-bedroom condo overlooking the river, which...

From the bellman who greeted us, to the front desk, even the housekeeping staff were warm, friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and cozy on a miserable winter weekend. We loved having (free) access to the bicycles and took a quick ride across Tillicum Bridge to view the city. Can't beat this location in Portland!

This hotel is nicely situated. Plenty within a walk distance. During our a the elevator was malfunctioning. Taking us to the basement. Unfortunately the stairs were only usable in an emergency? Not sure why that restriction. The room was nice. However the switch plates and electrical receptacles all we left behind during the reno, so although the paint is fresh,...

I would like to apologize to you on the elevator issues you experienced over the weekend, I know firsthand it involved frustrating waits. The steps were certainly available for use, I think the misunderstanding falls on how the building was originally designed, the steps lead to outside rather than to the lobby area. I appreciate the great feedback on the...

Stayed at the RiverPlace Hotel overnight with friends while visiting Portland. Room was very nice, clean, well decorated. Stayed in a King room with a great view of the river. The restaurant in the hotel was very good as well!

Although the hotel is beautifully positioned on the Willamette River with gorgeous views, we discovered one of the two elevators broken. Stairs were at opposite ends of the hotel and could not be accessed from the outside. Front desk staff confirmed it has been broken for some time and couldn't say when it was to fixed. The first day there...

Hi Janet, Thanks for this feedback. It has been a pretty embarrassing weekend for us. I cannot apologize enough for the issues you experienced with the elevators. We have been working closely with our elevator repair company and it was determined we needed to install two new control boards, unfortunately they did not have them on hand and they needed...

We booked at the Riverplace because it was a Kimpton, and, honestly, I needed to keep my membership active. What a pleasant surprise, since last time I stayed at this hotel, probably 10 years ago. Beyond the current comfortable ambience in the lobby, restaurant, public spaces, and rooms, the overall experience was one of feeling important, cared for, and exceedingly...

I love most Kimptons but I REALLY love this one! Gorgeous hotel on the river and next to McCall Park (great for walking) with wonderful rooms and the nicest people!

Stayed in one of the rooms with the fireplace and one without one. Both were a horrible experience. The place is built super thin and everything vibrates, so you will hear a lot of steps coming from the rooms upstairs, doors closing, maids cleaning. I don't know how this was rated as one of the top places to stay in...

Hi Wayne, I am so very sorry for the noise you encountered, it is pretty rare we get noise complaints about thin walls or noise caused by the structure of the building. I will take a look at what guestrooms you occupied and determine if there is something out of the ordinary going on. I appreciate you bringing this to...

I have stayed at the RiverPlace many times in the last 15 years. I love its location on the Willamette River, just below the Hawthorne Bridge, the decor and warm service.
