“Great Hotel Experience”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Our five-night stay at the Residence Inn at Riverplace in Portland was a great experience. The suites were large, clean, and well provided. We had a two-bedroom suite that had a full kitchen, two baths, three flat-screen TVs. We chose a room on the city side, not the highway bridge side to eliminate any possible noise. The room was super quiet. Morning breakfasts were always good -- not gourmet -- but basic good with a variety of food and drink choices. The dining area was huge -- no hunting for an empty table. The evenings included a variety of offerings -- snacks, hot dogs, bratwurst, soup, huge pretzels, and free beer and wine. Staff was helpful with a couple of minor problems. WiFi was slow and required frequent sign-ons. Location was great -- right on the waterfront with multiple restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. Best of all was that the streetcar stop was right outside the door, allowing us to travel anywhere easily. They don't have an airport shuttle (too far from airport) so you'll have to use a van (about $14 person) or taxis (about $38 plus a bit extra per person).

We'll definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: We stayed away from the "river view" I-5 highway bridge side due to noise concerns but oth...

Although I was only there for two days & nights, I enjoyed my stay very much. The suite was clean and very well-appointed with kitchen, two flat screen televisions, comfortable living room and spacious bedroom & bath. The bed was super comfortable and I just loved the "fainting couch" in the livingroom for stretching out to relax while reviewing papers for my next meeting. The location is ideal for anyone who likes to walk as much as I do. The hotel is right near a beautiful waterfront area which offers many shopping and dining options as well as the great views and safe place to walk for exercise or pleasure. I walked all the way to the VOODOO Doughnut shop and back! That's another review I stongly suggest you read! There are wonderful waterfront activities such as kayaking and the famous Dragon Boats. Look into all that Portland's waterfront has to offer and wear comfortable shoes and just set out. There is nothing like it. Very walker friendly! I was a woman walking alone and I felt safe everywhere I went. Of course I'm a Jersey Girl, and pride myself on having been raised by a cop who instilled some serious street-smarts in my fiber, so it takes a bit more to trigger my red flags! lol Enjoy!

Room Tip: There is some construction going on along the far side of the building, so ask for a room that doesn...

This hotel was lovely, clean, spacious, comfortable, quiet and a good value. The room was large and lovely. The location is at the river front and a short walk to some nice restaurants and the river front walkway is great to walk or jog.

The hotel is also dog friendly. It was very quiet which was great. The breakfast which is included daily was fantastic.

This was our first time staying at this property. The breakfast was fantastic and its great for families. Its clean and close to the waterfront and the two bedroom unit was nicely laid out. There are great restaurants within a 5 minute walk and the Portland Streetcar has a stop right next to the hotel!

The Residence Inn is what you would expect from a Residence Inn good and consistent with nice breakfast in the morning. It does not have any special charm though. The location is at the edge of the loop. You can take the street car into the center of downtown. Also close to some restaurants in the marina. Near the bike trail too.

I stayed in a two-bedroom suite with my sister and niece for the Susan Koman Race for the cure in September. It was really easy to get to and was close enough to the race to be able to walk there.
The suite size wasn't too large but more than adequate for our one night there.
The place was clean and smoke free.
The view out the window is over a construction site, but we were there for one night, so it really wasn't an issue for us.
The kitchenette would be great for visitors staying who want to eat in.
My sister and I went down to the pool and jacuzzi and had a relaxing break.
The TVs in the room were a nice size.
And we were in a quiet wing of the hotel.
The breakfast was fresh, with a variety of delicious foods, from eggs and sausage to cereal, yogurt, bagels and muffins.
Staff was friendly, courteous and efficient!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 820, which was a short walking distance from the elevator and very quiet. The vie...

This was our 1st stay at a Resicence Inn. We were greatly impressed. The hotel in general was quite nice. The staff was all very pleasant and helpful. Our room was quite large and very comfortable with a living, dining, kitchen area and a large bedroom and bath. The complimentary breakfast buffet was very nice, as was the evening social. The location is great - a very short walk to waterfront park, and the Portland Streetcar has a stop a half-block away.
