This is an all-around outstanding hotel. Service 10/10 - Smooth check-in - all staff have some sort of local expertise, whether it is on biking, public parks or best running paths. Extremely competent and friendly service. Location 10/10 - YMMV, but I loved this relatively new part of town. Good food, good shopping, nice walking or running path beside the... More

Loved everything about the RiverPlace Hotel, particularly the absolutely stunning river views from both the spacious room and the downstairs restaurant, which also deserves a mention for its great service, ambience, and food. The location is a little out of the way but that's part of the hotel's charm and allows for a bit of peace and quiet as well... More

Well we loved everything about your review! As far as your minor complaint goes, I understand not having a fitness center onsite can be a bummer. We do have plans on building one next year, in the meantime we do offer free day passes to the local 24 Hour Fitness, which in my opinion offers so much more than any... More

I visited RiverPlace Hotel in September 2016, amazingly located on the waterfront of Williamette River in downtown Portland, Oregon . This gracious and welcoming Hotal overlooking a small craft marina that is beautiful this was my high light of this trip aside from my business meeting. Another one of my high light was the Lucere Resturant overlooking the river which... More

This is a beautifully managed and maintained hotel! It represents the Kimpton brand extremely well. It's a bit off the beaten track but close enough to stroll to the action. The river views from hotel are nice and relaxing especially sitting near a fireplace drinking a warm bourbon and cider cocktail.. Despite the fact that our chosen room did not... More

We were upgraded to a one bedroom condo with a balcony overlooking the river. The staff was extremely friendly and professional. Our condo hotel room was spacious and well appointed.

Totally enjoyed the ease of access to my business meetings downtown. Loved the boardwalk walk in the evening for lovely meal overlooking the river and the jog in the morning. Comfortable beds and a lovely glass of wine to close out the day. Surely will do it again.

We arrived 3 hours early at the hotel for check-in. We really did not expect to be able to get into our room, but since we had been traveling since 4:00 am, we hoped to be able to just relax and take a nap. We were delighted when we were told our room was ready! From the front desk, to... More

Husband and I stayed here two nights as a mini-getaway for our anniversary. We were treated to a nice bottle of Pinot Noir by the hotel in honor of the occasion, which went deliciously with the cookies served each evening.
