Every single person throughout our stay greeted our dog, held the door for him, or offered him treats. They treated him like a guest, which was a very nice surprise. The corner room was very comfortable - mattress and pillows were exceptional (even more luxurious than a Heavenly bed), and the location was phenomenal. The river walk is your backdoor,...

We stayed in one of the Kimpton's lovely marina suites overlooking the Willamette. Service was great, and the stay was spectacular. Kimpton's hotel staff was courteous and attentive to our needs. My wife and I enjoyed every minute and can't wait to come back some day.

I won't say which room exactly for fear that when I come back it will never be available. But I will give some hints. It's listed as a Courtyard View Queen Deluxe, the building is U shaped and the courtyard is in the middle, The most courtyard views are just a few of the landscape area and the building,but......this great...

Everything was perfect and Fun! They went the extra mile and so did we on the free bike use. We toured around Portland, had a blast on the bikes and stopped in at a pub or two along the way...A little birdy told us to visit the bar and we got a free appetizer.

The location is great---easy to get to and in a quiet area although close to downtown. The park adjacent is nice to walk in, and the property is right on the marina.

I've stayed here at least 5 times over the last 3 months. An exceptional hotel from service at the front desk to housekeeping. Also - a fantastic dining experience at Three Degrees.

High end lodging should meet high standards. This hotel meets these standards in nearly all categories save two: transparency (discussed below) and food quality. The staff is outstanding. The room is clean, well furnished, adequate bathroom space, lobby coffee with several newspaper, afternoon wine tasting and pleasing fireplace lobby setting. The Kimpton system is apparently dog-friendly. Fine!-state publicly that dogs...

The Kimpton Riverplace was a great place to stay. Located along the river in the downtown area of Portland you get the best of both worlds by a nice walk along the river with blooming trees and a quick walk into town for dinner and shopping.
