“Fantastic three day stay!”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

I can't say enough about our three night stay at RiverPlace! Originally we booked our stay to celebrate our 31st Anniversary and then decided to get married in WA because we could! This turned our stay into a Wedding Celebration and the staff at the Hotel were welcoming, kind, resourceful and fun. Our room was updated to a riverfront condo and even our Bichon Frise, Shelly was royally welcomed. The hotel was spotlessly clean, well appointed, and offered an excellent wine tasting with a friendly and very helpful server. We will be returning again and again and will take advantage of the Three Degree's Restaurant next visit.

Room Tip: Riverfront provides an excellent view of the Willamette River and the docks below.

I had the city room which had a river view (1), fireplace and soaking tub. There was always plenty of wood and they made it super easy to light the fire. Anything you need, they are there in a flash. There are bikes too, big plasma screens in the LR and BR, fast room service and in a nice area close/if not in - downtown. There are nice shops along the marina and a few great restaurants as well.

Room Tip: The spa is not part of the hotel . . . it's the Portland Spa next door where I got the worst blo...

Husband and I were in Portland for Fall getaway to visit friends. I chose River Place based upon the glowing recommendations and was not disappointed. I never sleep well away from home but the mattress and bed linens were so soft and comfortable that my husband had to drag me from bed each morning of our 4 day/3 night visit. The location was beautiful as well as convenient to all our activities . Coffee, papers and the fireplace in the lobby were a wonderful way to start each day..I will definitely come back to Portland and stay at River Place.

Room Tip: Our outside view was not great but the comfort of the bed and the nice room appointments were wonder...

Now why would he feel the need to drag you out of that comfy bed? Oh well, next time tell him to get you some voodoo donuts so you can catch up on your relaxing. See you soon!

It tries. The staff try. But geez. Tv remote won't work from sitting in bed. Coffee maker is one cup. At a time, and the mugs are just a little too small. Bedside Lamps are massive but don't give off enough light to read a magazine. And the bed - it's sacked out. Can't roll over without waking up.
The decor is so eclectic you wonder if it really tried to be this odd.

The River Place is a typical Kimpton hotel charging high end boutique hotel rates for a usually feeble attempt to do so. This hotel duplicates our experiences with Kimptons. It is a pleasant facility with attempts at excellent services, but always just short of the mark. Our room is an upscale King small suite. Tasteful decor, but very average finishes. Small things that those that may be enamored by the marketing like no plugs available at the table/desk for computers or anything; disconnect a light to do so. A tub/shower, closet door handles filthy, poor drawer storage space. Most annoying is the only access to the internet without paying $12.99 per night is a mandatory membership in their Kimpton "Club" which includes your birth date, sex, email address, etc! They are attempting to market at a level that does not equate to their lower level of quality. They are apparently quite successful and many people are happy with them. They do not meet our expectations for a high quality boutique hotel.

I would like to apologize that your stays at Kimpton Hotels have not left you impressed. I am so sorry that you experienced cleanliness issues in the guestroom you occupied I will address this immediately with my Executive Housekeeper and the Housekeeping staff. I would like to mention that we do offer built in plugs in each bedside table and in each guestroom desk. Each bedside stand is marked with the international power symbol to notify our guest that plugs are available once you open the cabinet door. We can always supply you with free internet access by providing a username and password from the front desk for those that wish not to sign up for our loyalty program. Thank you for your feedback. I promise we will use it to improve upon our product and services.

My wife and I were booked to stay at the RiverPlace Hotel in Portland, OR by a travel agency for a quick 2 night stay while on business. Upon checking in I was delighted to find out we were staying at a Kimpton property. We've had nothing but positive stays at other Kimpton Hotels and our stay at the RiverPlace only confirmed why we enjoyed our stay. Everybody was helpful. The services are super. Location is awesome. Rooms are perfect. Make sure to stay here next time you're in Portland.

Room Tip: Water view for sure!
