Wonderful hotel on the waterfront near downtown Portland. Friendly and helpful staff. Walking distance of various restaurants. Enjoyed watching all the boats and rowers on the river. Easy access to freeway.

The waterfront view is gorgeous. Enjoyed the sunrise & sunset. Every afternoon event like wine & brewery tasting. Not far walking location to Downtown Portland & Pearl District. The dragon boat event is interesting.

Thank you! If you think that sunrise and sunset is nice, be sure to check out one of our full moon yoga classes up on our courtyard, it's spectacular. We all appreciate you visiting the RiverPlace and taking the time to share your thoughts on the experience. See you at yoga, Ryan (GM) More

We stayed here during August 2016 on two separate occasions. The first time we stayed in a king suite with a river view. The room was nice enough, the bed was comfortable but the bathroom was sort of dark and was not air conditioned. The shower was a combination bathtub/shower. To be honest, since we were not in the room... More

Accommodations are unique and top notch. Staff are attentive, warm and inviting with a keen focus making my stay a welcomed/enjoyable experience. This is my favorite place to stay in down town Portland and is my home away from home while on business travel.

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 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.
