“Great place to stay with your dog!”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Any of the Kimpton hotels are great for dogs, but this one is next door to green space making it easy to walk them too! The staff are always great and you will love the red carpet treatment you and your furry friend receive!

Room Tip: The river views are nice.

Our location which is adjacent to large grassy park is a dogs dream! Not to mention the Canadian Geese they get to chase around. See you soon.

I've now stayed at all three Kimpton properties in Portland, Oregon. Compared to the other two Kimptons here, I liked this place the best. It is in walking distance of plenty of other places to eat and has great places around the hotel for walking around (away from the street and cars) in the mornings or evenings to get in a bit of exercise. Speaking of cars, the parking situation at Riverplace was the easiest of all of the three properties I've stayed at in Portland. Aside from the boat traffic honking from time to time, it felt like the quietest of the three properties.

I decided to get a room with a fireplace, and I really enjoyed being able to make a fire in the evenings after class. The classes were being held just two miles away on the other side of the Williamette River, so it was the quickest commute from all three properties. Since I had a rental car on this visit, I was able to go out and do a little grocery shopping for snacks and picnic lunches for class.

The rooms and amenities are great in all Kimpton hotels, and it was true here too. I did have to ask for additional firewood, fire-starters and matches, but they were quite willing to provide them when asked. While they didn't clean out the fireplace during my stay, I'm pretty good with fires, so it wasn't a problem. They probably would have done so, if I had asked.

The jacuzzi tub was a nice addition to the room and the shower was a very good one. They had plenty of places to stash my makeup and toiletries in the bathroom. I did have to ask for extra hangers, since I was there for a longer than usual stay. There are only a total of 2 drawers, so if a couple were staying here for a while, that situation could get a little problematic.

All in all, I think I'd come back to this property over the other two in Portland and my stay here was the best so far.

Room Tip: River views are great. Know in advance that you'll hear boats, trains and people talking when yo...

Green Features: I hung up my towels to be reused every day and sometimes they left them and other times they took them away, despite my speaking to the front desk about making sure the staff left them.

Great place to stay near downtown and on the river. Room was clean and comfy and the extra Kimpton touches make you want to come back, Staff was helpful and very friendly. This is our "go to" when in Portland.

A very nice, clean hotel, good service with very helpful happy staff and excellent meals. Only about 5-10 mins from streetcar stop, depending on your speed, so good access to the city. Plenty of eating nearby if you want a walk out to eat. Worth a room with a river view.

This is a beautiful hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was bright, clean and nicely decorated. Lots of little café/bar type places to eat within walking distance. Will stay here again!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Kimpton Riverplace in Portland Oregon. We stayed for 3 nights and we can't say enough about this hotel. Staff are very friendly and go out of their way to assist and make the stay perfect. We vacationed with our black lab and the little things that this hotel did such as provide a dog bed, bowls, bags, treats, even small towels to wipe paws after a wet walk in the rain. We want to thank Ellie and Sekhon for their wonderful welcome and assistance when we first arrived. Andrew with the Concierge desk was helpful with local places to visit such as the amazing brew pubs this city as to offer. The room was very clean, beds very comfortable and housekeeping was very helpful in cleaning our room while we walked our dog in the morning. Martha from housekeeping was wonderful and went out of her way every day to ensure the room was clean and looking great.

This vacation was a birthday trip for my husband and we are SOOOO glad we picked this hotel. I am very picky and travelling with a dog sometimes can be discouraging but not with Kimpton!!!

Thank you so much for the wonderful experience. We recommend this hotel...especially if you are a dog lover.

We will return one day :)

What a great Birthday gift! Yes I couldn't agree more, if you are traveling with your dog you can’t go wrong with a Kimpton hotel. No pet deposit, no size requirements, and we hook them up with all sorts of fun pet amenities. Thanks for choosing the RiverPlace.

Cheers,

Ryan

This is a very nice hotel in a good location on the Willamette River. Room was very comfortable, staff all very friendly, and its a good jumping off to walk long the river and explore the city in general.
