“An Anniversary to Remember!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Our first time to this Kimpton in Portland . . . to celebrate our 38th Anniversary. Booked it online and mentioned the reason for our stay. Upon arrival, we were informed that we'd been upgraded to the Grand Suite with complimentary bottle of champagne, chocolate & a personal note . . . what a wonderful surprise! A very nice setting along the Willamette River, with great service. We will return! Thank you, RiverePlace!

The location of this hotel is superb. In the city, yet nestled away from the hustle and bustle, and right on the water. So many things to do, right from this point. Great river walk with shops and dining. Easy freeway access. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the entire staff is very friendly and accommodating. The river view rooms give a great view. Some even have fireplaces in them. The beds and pillows are so comfortable. I will stay here every time I come to Portland.

Room Tip: River view rooms are awesome.

Green Features: I am all for the environmental practices the hotel uses. I have no problem with hanging my towel to re-use it. They also have recycle baskets in the rooms.

On my first trip to Portland, I took the advice of a friend and stayed at the River Place Hotel. It is a very nice and comfortable hotel, but for about $100.00 less per night, I could have stayed right across the street at the Marriott, which is very nice hotel, also.

Room Tip: Any river view room on the second floor is nice. You have an excellent view of the marina and passe...

It is true at times our rates can be higher than the Marriott’s. Here at the RiverPlace we continuously seek value add amenities to offer. Free bike rentals, yoga class on Fridays, wine and beer hour every evening, morning coffee and tea reception, free passes to a nearby athletic club, not to mention some of the best service in Portland. In my opinion you always get what you pay for. Thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you again when you come visit Portland.

Wonderful location and service. Top notch in everything they do and provide. It can be expensive but is soo worth it. I live in area but love going here to escape the suburbs and kids to spend a night downtown.

Thank you Kimpton and Riverplace for a very memorable stay, commemorating two milestones (a significant birthday and anniversary). My husband and I celebrated our marriage here, 24 years ago, and returned to celebrate again ~ wow, we were very pampered. Thank you! I was very impressed!

For anyone new to Kimpton, join their loyalty program!

We had the Riverview Suite and really enjoyed everything. Very nice, spacious, new and clean room with living room, kitchen and outdoor patio. Very comfortable bed and good room service. We'll be back. A+++

We love staying at the Riverplace. The location is perfect - close to restaurants, shopping, and the running trail along the Williamette River. The attention to detail and personal attention is outstanding. Love the free happy hour and enjoy people watching along the river. We take their bikes and shop all day when we stay in the city. This visit we enjoyed a day trip to Hood River to watch the kite boarders/wind surfers and do a little hiking up to the top of Hamilton Mountain. We also very much enjoyed a trip to Cannon Beach/Tillamook as well. You will not be disappointed!
