Kimpton properties are always reliably clean and luxurious and Riverplace is no exception… It was a perfect stay with an amazingly beautiful location. I’m so grateful to have found this property and excited to add it to my list of “must stays”. Well done Kimpton…

Nice clean property. Kimpton won’t allow points unless reservations are made directly through them.

We have been visiting relatives in Portland for the last 7 years and we always stay at the Riverplace Hotel because we can depend on the cleanliness and the helpfullness of the staff. Due to the covid the shops in the area are closed right now but it is usually fun to visit the shops in the same block as the hotel.

This is a beautiful property which was such a highlight of my trip to Portland. The room was gorgeous, the bed was comfortable, the workout facility was fantastic, and the food in the restaurant was delicious! The only disappointing aspect was having to pay for internet service, on top of other service fees you have to pay at this property. Internet should be a very basic, included service of any hotel and especially one at this price point.

Nice location. Friendly environment. Enjoyed our stay.

Beautifully modern hotel on the Willamette River in downtown Portland. Convenient to attractions like the zoo and the Japanese gardens, you can also see OMSI across the water. We were here for a trip to the Children's hospital and this was also close enough to be convenient. There's lots of food options in the surrounding area and plenty of delivery companies if you don't want to leave the comfort of your riverfront room. Room service is decent though watch for the already included 20% gratuity. I accidentally double-tipped on the last morning because I wasn't paying attention. The restaurant is ok, but I'd opt for checking out other options in the area until they finish revamping the menu (per their website) unless you really don't want to/can't leave the hotel (my daughter wasn't up for traveling about much). The room and bathroom were lovely: quiet, modern, spacious, and clean. Beautiful view! Be sure to get a river view room to take full advantage of this location.TV audio cut in and out at times which is only extra annoying when you pay $20 (!) to rent a movie. The bed was comfy with plenty of pillows and blankets. I don't think I heard or really saw other guests during our entire stay, aside from in the restaurant. However, you will hear a train going by if you have the windows open in your room. Room is very quiet with them closed. ff was fantastic, helpful, and friendly all around. Very upscale feeling throughout this boutique hotel. We'll definitely be coming back!

Great rooms, all the staff are very nice and helpful.

My husband and I had such a nice warm rainy four night stay at this lovely hotel. The major reason being an unbelievable management and staff; truly exhibiting all the best in customer service principles.

Best views. Wine reception nightly. Dogs welcome. Great food. And quiet. Five stars all around.

Hotel staff were exceptional in making our experience truly pleasant.

I have never been to Portland before. The staff was quick to offer suggestions for not only dining, but "must sees" in town and in the surrounding area. The hotel was lovely, warm and inviting. The food was excellent. The daily wine hour was an added bonus. I would definitely stay there again!

It's not easy to be attentive without being fussy but the staff at the Kimpton pull it off. The location couldn't be more perfect. Situated right on the river and walking distance to everywhere in downtown Portland. Dog Friendly. Free bikes, too. We'll be back.

My favorite part about this hotel was it's location. Loved riding a (hotel provided) bike along the river. Their reatuarant was great, overall a wonderful experience at RiverPlace hotel. My husband and I loved Oregon, my only complaint is the drivers can be very rude, I'm from CA so that says a lot. :)

We loved this hotel. The room was amazing, the service and amenities terrific. We would absolutely stay here again.

Super easy access from the freeway! Listened to wonderful music on the waterfront. Delightful hotel!

I arrived at the hotel and was received with a warm welcome. The staff was extremely professional and mad my stay really comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends.

The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. The restaurant is nice.

Jamie- it is wonderful to hear that you and your daughter had such a lovely time. I noticed the movie charge was not adjusted off your bill (you probably didn't think to mention it) so we'll be taking care of that and crediting you back. Thank you for sharing your experience. We hope to have you back again soon minus the hospital visit!

Hi Bonnie, Thank you for the shout out to the management staff! You know we can't take any of that credit, we just hire and let our staff be themselves. So happy you and your husband enjoyed their hospitality. Till next time. Ryan (GM)
