Located in a great spot in Portland. I was in easy walking distance to the city sights - shopping, dining, and night life. I was minutes away from the river so I was able to walk tot the "Saturday Street Fair" on both Saturday and Sunday. Shopping was steps away at Pioneer Plaza as was dining. Definitely make sure you make the 10-minute walk to Voodoo Donuts and get the maple bacon donut!
I stayed in a queen standard room which was more than large enough for a single or couple. Decor is standard Kimpton, a bit flashy but in a very comfortable old world way. It's not as sterile as some of the more contemporary boutiques. My only concern is the bathroom which didn't feel up to snuff with the latest hotels and felt more like your standard hotel.
Parking is valet and pricey, but the staff in the garage is attentive and full of great recommendations for little road trips. I spent a day on the Columbia River Highway which I highly recommend. The hotel has great little pre-printed cards with instructions to all local sights which is useful in the confusing town of one-way streets and bridges in/out of the city. I never waited for anyone in the garage at all hours of the day which is nice. I've been to some places where you have to hunt for the valet.
As always the wine reception at the Kimpton is not to be missed. What's great about Portland is that Oregon has some very nice local wineries.
