“Great service and super view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Following an unhappy experience at a Kimpton hotel in DC, we checked in to this lovely experience. Newly remodeled, the rooms are comfy and functional. Great people work here! Good walking/running/bicycling trails all around.

Room Tip: Go for the river view rooms

This is a nice, updated and very comfortable hotel. I like the location, as it is close to downtown, but away from it too. Limited number of rooms and kind of a weird set up. Parking is a little odd unless you valet. The restaurant and bar were very good, to even excellent. I like the bar, but it is pretty sedate.

My recent stay with RiverPlace (May 5-9) was a very pleasant experience. The hotel service is extremely friendly and accommodating. We arrived on my birthday, and there was a nice bottle of wine and chocolates in my room to greet us. The room was very comfortable and clean, with room to stretch out a bit over our 4-day stay. The staff always offered to help, whether with directions or restaurant suggestions. I would certainly stay there again.

My husband and I stayed in a river view king room. We loved the scenery and the bed was comfortable. I felt the bathroom was small and, I know this sounds weird, but the toilet paper holder placed in a very inconvenient location. We ate room service for breakfast (ever so average) and dinner (quite good). The staff was overall very engaging and tried hard to meet our requests promptly. We usually stay at the The Heathman, but enjoyed this scenic change.

Room Tip: River view is the whole point.

Thank you for your review! We are so happy that you enjoyed our great hotel as well as the beautiful view from our guest rooms. We are currently working with our executive team to look at an alternative location for the toilet paper rolls in some of our guest rooms. We hope to find a solution that will make utilizing that space easier for our guests.

Thank you again for your review and we look forward to seeing you again the next time you find yourself in the City of Roses.

RiverPlace sits right near the Willamette River and faces both the river and the city of Portland. It is on the western bank of the river between two of Portlands bridges. It is quiet, an easy walk into the downtown and one can access Portlands great transportation system. Lots of good restaurants in easy walking distance and one can wander the riverfront, too! The hotel is good looking, up to date, and I like staff with a sense of humor! I had a wonderful sense of being welcomed and everyone seemed happy to be working there and trying to make us feel at home.

We went to Portland because my son swam in a swim meet and the staff found a newspaper report about the meet with my son's name in the paper and saved it for me.

The rooms are big, spotless, the beds are comfortable, and the staff is very helpful. I'd called to get reservations for a very popular Portland restaurant and was told by the restaurant that they were full and unable to seat us. The concierge called and, zap, pow, zoom,..we had a reservation!

I'm tough on Hotels and I have not a single grumble about RiverPlace.

The Kimpton chain never fails. I chose this hotel for my team on site project. Everyone loved it! The staff is great, the rooms are amazing and the location can't be beat. I cannot say a negative about it. I can't wait to go back!

Excellent service. Quality without being pretentious or overbearing. Room was well appointed and clean and attention to detail was obvious by staff. The best upscale hotel I have stayed in, for the price.
