Over Rated

Nice hotel and location. No pool, reservations were accepted for jacuzzi/ sauna but were booked for the evening. No iron in the room or closet space, no terry cloth bath robes that were said to have. Expensive valet parking should of been included in your stay for the price. Just too expensive for what you got. Had more amenities in other hotels for lesser price and just as nice of rooms. I also noticed for a saturday evening that all the lounges were closed at 11:00 pm around the hotel surroundings. Pretty disapointing

A nice get away

My husband and I hid away for an anniversary weekend with our puppy. The staff was very, very nice and quite accommodating to our needs. We were a bit disappointed with our "courtyard" view, which really just looked over the valet and front parking lot. If you're hoping to go downtown for shopping, it's a quick 10 to 15 minute walk to Portland's wonderful public transit system. The front desk is also very helpful in giving directions for getting places.

Great stay

This is truly a four star hotel. The staff is very helpful, friendly and courteous. The room had a very eclectic style and very comfortable! The only con I have is the restaurant. Service was great but the food was just okay, especially for the prices.

Lovely place to stay

Excellent service and pet friendly! As the name suggests it is located on the river, so the view was beautiful. My favorite part is they have wine hour every evening complimentary for guests!

Good hotel

The hotel is in a cool location - right on the river. But, if you want to be in the heart of the city, it's not the best hotel for you. It's about a mile walk to downtown, and even farther from the Pearl District. So, it's a bit too out of the ways from all of the places you'll want to be when you're first visiting and trying to explore the city. The staff was very friendly, but a little absent-minded in providing service. The room was very clean, which I love. The bar downstairs cannot produce a good cappuccino so don't waste your time. Overall, I'm happy with my stay but probably wouldn't stay here again - I'd go somewhere more centrally located.

Parking

My only issue with this hotel is the difficulty with parking. I had to park in a lot and pay $16 a day. Parking is challenging here.

New Years Eve at RiverPlace

This is a very beautiful hotel. The lobby is well appointed. I especially liked the fire place area. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and comfortable. The riverfront location gives the hotel a spectacular view and easy access to the river front trail that goes for miles. However, they had nothing special going for New Years Eve. The bar closed at 11. The courtyard on the second floor which would have been a great place to ring in the New Year was closed at 10.

Expectations

The RiverPlace is quite a nice hotel with some unique features, but does lack a few things from making it perfect. I was told it was just recently purchased by Kimpton who are spending some more money to bring more things to it though. Hotel - a charming smaller hotel right on the river with a fantastic view and nice atmosphere. It has some space on the outside with bike and walking paths which do not make it feel as clustered as the other hotels downtown. The rooms and the inside are very clean and are nice and are not dated like you find at some hotels that have been open awhile. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Location - the location is downtown which is nice, but on the far southeast side of downtown. Portland has a ton of mass transit system that can get you anywhere downtown with the exception of this hotel so you have to do some walking if you are here compared to the other hotels that are closer to the entertainment, museum, and transit areas. The upside is it is a bit quieter and peaceful Amenities - the hotel has a nice bar and spa area for the guests which is quite comforting. The food at the hotel though is quite disappointing. Portland is a great town for food, but the food we had at the hotel was sub-par for a hotel this nice and for the city as a whole, but there are numerous great restaurants throughout the city and I understand Kimpton is pumping more resources into the restaurant and food at hotel. If you are looking to stay in and not do anything at the hotel at night, they do not have in-room movie ordering like most hotels, but they do have a selection of complimentary DVDs downstairs. Price - right now they have a ton of specials going on. You can stay at this hotel for as little as $142 a night which is quite a good deal. Normally the price is over $300 I think. Overall, a nice hotel with some unique qualities to it. These qualities some might like and some might not as much compared with the other hotels in Portland in the same class. The only real flaw that irked me was the food.

One Night in PDX

Have stayed at a lot of hotels in PDX and liked many of them. Am a big Kimpton fan so pre-disposed to like their hotels. The rooms aren't as fun/funky as others (although the bathrobes are) but big, clean and comfortable with usual Kimpton friendliness. Would stay again.
