“Great for business”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

I have traveled on business in both the US and Europe for years and I have stayed in nice hotels across both continents. As many business travelers will know, eating in your room while working is not unusual. Food is most of the time so, so. The RiverPlace is a great hotel with nice perks, clean and updated but I want to call out the room service and food – it was beyond anything I could imagine room service could make. I had the yellowtail crudo as a starter (exceptional) and the seasonal fish (Halibut was on the menu). Both were very good and better than any in-room dinner I have had – it is really on list of best food I have had while traveling (be it in-room or at a restaurant). I highly recommend this hotel for business and pleasure.

It’s not every day you hear that the In Room Dining experience is the highlight of one’s stay. Your review will be shared with our Executive Chef, he has done an amazing job at the new menu changes and concept. Thank You!

My wife and I loved this place. The staff was so very warm and accommodating. They're knowledgeable about the area and gave us a lot of good advice on things to do and places to see. Our room was especially nice, with a beautiful view of the river. The bed was so comfortable, we both slept great. The room was also nice and clean. We can't wait to visit Portland again, and when we do we definitely will stay again at this wonderful hotel

We just checked out of our hotel and loved our experience so much we are heading up to Seattle to stay at Alexis Kimpton hotel there. Thank you River Place for making our stay wonderful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling with kids and a puppy! They make you and your little ones feel like the red carpet is being rolled out.

As one that travels with my dog often I never did understand charging extra for a pet especially if they are well behaved. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and all of the dog amenities that came along with it. Hope to see you soon!

RiverPlace Hotel and their welcoming staff are the main reason we visit Portland, OR. We love the river view from our room, the complimentary bikes (and helmets) with the nearby bike paths and the 5:00 happy hour with complimentary wine, beer and goodies. We have never met a more friendly hotel staff and we look forward to our visit (or two) every year! We have never had a bad meal at the hotel restaurant. The location of the hotel to everything you want to see and do in Portland is perfect! Last but not least.... The rocking chairs on the patio are a nice touch!

Room Tip: River front is our favorite.

Stayed at the RiverPlace on the Willamette River twice and so pleased with both visits that we already booked next stay? Love the location, amenities and rooms. Everyone is so welcoming, friendly, pleasant and very helpful with special requests. Thank you RiverPlace for making our visits so comfortable!

We loved this place. I travel a lot and found this hotel to have the best service of probably any hotel I have been in....including Four Seasons in a few places. They said yes to everything. They were super friendly which made our kids feel welcome. The hotel must have purchased a small apartment complex right next door which they use for Suites. There are only 2 that are 2 bedrooms...one on the 2nd floor above a Spa and one above that on the third floor. We stayed in both since we began and ended our trip in Portland. The top one is quieter because you can't hear anyone walking above you, but the King bedroom was a little warmer than the Queen bedroom...something about the air. They have a balcony, full kitchen, 6 seat dining table, washer/dryer, single cup coffee pots (4 cups ones upon request), blender, dishwasher, etc. they even provide Tide, Bounce and Cascade. It was Perfect!!!!! Would stay here for every visit!!!! Kids also loved the gold fish ( upon request) in the room and special kids pack they gave them.
