RiverPlace is highly-rated and in all respects deservedly so. The location is right on the riverfront abutting a park area, the immediate neighborhood has a health club which allows hotel guests a daily membership (for lap swimmers the best time is about 8 a.m.) and - if you can get a reservation - VQ restaurant not more than two blocks away (go for weekend brunch but do reserve in advance) as well as - in the other direction - the free trolley to downtown.
The hotel though new is tastefully done (no faux rustification) with ample rooms and the dining areas are spacious but not overdone. Those with much hotel experience in the US will be surprised to find the restaurant Three Degrees serves innovative and savory cuisine; the menu features local, seasonal produce by local chefs, and the quality of both dinner and breakfast menus invites a return. So, too, happy hour at the bar is not to be missed, and the local wines (wine from Oregon? Oh yes...) are great.
We live in Asia throughout the year and I travel throughout that region for business, staying at great hotels in Asia, mostly local, small, particularized, boutique hotels. RiverPlace compares well with the best of 'em, and that's why it's the only place I stay when in Portland: Service, quality, value and unique experience. Our daughter lives in Portland and she, too, thinks this hotel is the best so there, a local's recommendation as well.
