“Nice hotel in a quiet neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This hotel is located away from the city noise but still within walking distance from the center.
The rooms have been renovated recently and are large and clean, the biggest room's downside is the view: we had a courtyard room and since it's a really narrow courtyard it's quite dark even during the day.

Room Tip: Avoid the courtyard rooms

Thanks for your review and thank you for your feedback on the courtyard view. We are currently working with a landscape designer to improve the views of our courtyard to help match the beauty of our river views. I will share your comments with our team so we can push this project to the forefront

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!
