It was a holiday treat to myself to stay at River Place, and honestly, I expected it to be a little stuffy. Au contraire! The staff was in casual dress and very friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely, faciung the river so that we could see the boats which had been decorated with lights for the holidays cruising the river. Lovely.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel Us stuffy? Never! We like to provide 4 star service but without all of that up tightness. Thanks for visiting us over the holidays. Ryan
We enjoyed our stay here. This is a premium upscale hotel on the river boardwalk in Portland. Close to the city center and transit stations. Access to a local gym was good although it's about a 1.5 block outside walk to get there. Parking was a bit of a challenge since we opted to not pay the hotels only option of $31/night valet parking but we were […] able to find street parking during the evenings. The restaurant at the hotel is very nice but is pricey for what you get. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My wife is usually the trip planner. She always comes up with a binder and finds the best places to stay and the best restaurants. This was my turn to plan a trip as a birthday present for her and RiverPlace was our final stop before returning home. The place was just fantastic. The location on the river was rather stunning, I requested a river view […] king room which was as comfortable and well appointed as can be, staff was knowledgeable about the area, everything was just great! We went for a walk along the riverfront after we checked in and circled back through the city, arriving back in time for wine, hot cider and bourbon, cookies and appetizers in the lobby. Went out that evening for a great meal and returned for a really great nights sleep, with the exception of the one freight train coming through town at about 3:45am that insisted on blowing his whistle every 15 seconds for about 20 minutes. It was across the river, but close enough to be a bit annoying. Still didn't change my opinion of the place. I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great retreat spot close to Portland action!"
The hotel staff was amazing, the location is close to the Portland Market and within walking distance of the Pearl District (great shops, bars, restaurants, etc). I would definitely return for a another visit!Genuine Expedia guest review
Where to begin?! The attentive valets? The amazing location? The super comfy room? Or the great food? I am a pretty picky traveler and this hotel was just wonderful. I plan on calling the hotel to ask what type of bedding they have... the most comfortable I have ever slept in! It is super close to the streetcar for traveling without a vehicle and the […] $31 valet was worth every penny. Definitely going back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel Wow thanks for such an amazing review! Our beds are new with our newly remodeled guestrooms. We elected to use Simmons and they are made specifically for Kimpton Hotels. I’m super excited that you loved them so much. Thanks for the review! Ryan
"Classy waterfront hotel"
The staff were exceptional and they had a nice complimentary happy hour, what a nice touch.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks for the nice comment about our staff! We love hosting that wine hour each evening. We just started Hot Cider with infused Bourbon to warm up our guest on those chilly days. Hopefully you can join us something soon. Ryan
I really appreciate the style and decor. It was so fitting for this part of the country: "haute rustic," unlike my East Coast. Refreshing and beautiful!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel I am so glad to hear you enjoyed our new décor. Gino Castano the designer did an amazing job bringing the beauty of the pacific NW and our nearby marina into the RiverPlace Hotel decor. We appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback. Ryan
The hotel staff and hotel were excellent! We had a "courtyard" view, but it was really a decorated gravel pit! They could have put some plants, benches, etc. around there to make it somewhat interesting. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and would stay there again, just not in their "courtyard" view room!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel I would like to apologize for your disappointment in the courtyard guestroom view. We are currently working with a local landscape architect to redesign this area to become a gorgeous garden view. I am sorry this was not in place during your previous visit. Thank you for your feedback and your kind words about our staff. Ryan
Great PDX location for access to all areas of town. Staff superb. Room very quiet and comfortable. Mature traveler with high expectations and was well satisfied.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel I love hearing when we meet and exceed our guest expectations, especially coming from a seasoned traveler. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and sharing your thoughts about the RiverPlace. Ryan
"Great date night!"
We had dinner in the hotel restaurant - very yummy and a nice splurge for us. Then off to see a touring broadway show at the Keller Auditorium just 3 blocks away. After the play we returned for a late night drink and snack at the bar, and then drifted off to our very comfy king sized bed to dream the night away. Breakfast in the restaurant was even […] better with the sunny morning view of the river. I would highly recommend staying here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel Thank you so much for staying with us for your date night and for the review! The river in the morning is stunning. Hope to see you again!
"Friendly, Quaint Boutique Hotel"
Before arriving for our fun weekend to see the Michael Buble Concert… which was awesome! I called to set-up in room spa appointments. They were very fast getting back to me and also gave us a wonderful upgraded room to accommodate for spa space. When we arrived we were greeted with a friendly doorman and also our room was ready before check- in time. […] (These days you can hardly check in before 4 ). Room was clean and nicely decorated. SK helped me with dinner recommendations and reservations. Dinner at Jake's was wonderful..Thank you SK! The view is beautiful, right on the Williamette River. Great walking trail as well.

Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel SK is so helpful and I can't wait for him to read your review as I am sure he will be pleased! I heard Michael Buble put on a great show. Next time I am there! Thank you so much for your review!
This is a lovely hotel...upscale, trendy and very comfortable. The staff were outstanding e.g. they loaned my niece an electricity converter so she could re-charge her UK cell phone. The bar and dining room were beautiful with urban river views of Portland, and the room itself was very clean with crisp bed linens. The hotel is right on the waterfront […] and well situated for leisurely walks along the Willamette River. The River Place feels very welcoming and we will certainly go there again. And again.

Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel I love your title of the review! Thank you so much for lovely and descriptive review. We can't wait to see you again!
We really enjoyed our stay at the RiverPlace hotel. I would definitely go back. They upgraded us to a beautiful condo with a view of the boardwalk and river right outside our window. The staff was fantastic and very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel Thank you so much for your review. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. The view from the boardwalk is quite amamzing.
"Great Room and Service - nice location"
The hotel and rooms are very modern and clean. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. Our room overlooked the river and we could see two of the bridges, which were pretty at night. There was no balcony though. Though the hotel was located in a great part of town, it was a little secluded because it was down by the river. We noticed that the hotel […] offered bikes for guests to use - we saw at least three available. The City has a lot of bikers, and a lot of sites were within biking distance. We rented a car, which was great for sightseeing, but the only parking at the hotel is valet @ $30+ per night, or limited metered street parking. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location, uncomfortable furniture in room"
Stayed at in a King Deluxe. Was very disappointed in the size of the room, was not able to upgrade to a larger room. The furniture in the room, chairs, sofa was very uncomfortable. People were very friendly and nice but the facility was disappointing. Would not stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel I am so sorry you had such a disappointing experience. I am glad to hear the staff was able to accommodate a larger guestroom for you. I do however wish we could turn back the clock and make your stay a more memorable one. Thank you for your feedback. Ryan
"Best in Portland"
Incredible room, staff and food. Walking distance to the many fine restaurants along the water. I highly recommend!Genuine Expedia guest review
From moment we arrived, we received a warm welcome. Hotel food, drink and ambiance all excellent. Great location near the waterfront. Easy to walk to OMSI and to downtown.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel We appreciate you taking the time to review the RiverPlace. I love the fact that you enjoyed our location and what is better than a warm welcome! Ryan
"Highly recommend the hotel!"
Really enjoyed our stay at the River Place. The room was great, the staff was extremely nice and the nightly wine tastings were very enjoyable. A special shout out to Jacque for her friendliness and professionalism throughout our six day stay. She really made me and my wife feel welcomed. For good eats, recommend the Portland Grill for lunch (best view […] in the whole city), Jake’s Famous Crawfish for happy hour (3-6 daily) and Ken’s Artisan Bakery and the Pearl Bakery for yummy breakfast treats. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel Glad you really enjoyed the stay and the service from Jacque! She is an incredible talent. Great restaurant recommendations by the way. Hope to see you soon. Ryan
Riverplace, part of the Kimpton chain, is a great hotel if you can afford it. The service is excellent and the location is interesting. The rooms are quite small, however, and some, like ours, look into a dark inner courtyard. We couldn't open the curtains because several other rooms would be looking right into ours. We requested a change, but it never […] happened. Parking is expensive, though they may be willing to negotiate. The location is interesting. It is next to a pretty park and waterfront, but it is not in the downtown shopping area. There is no gym on sight but they give you access to one nearby. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful Boutique Hotel"
The people are the best here. EVERY single person was friendly, competent , and engaging.While the physical hotel needs a couple fixes, the location, attitude and overall ambience is superb !Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great as always"
We always stay at RiverPlace when in Portland. River view rooms are a must. Food was excellent. Restaurant has really excelled. New decor is a bit much. Not into that style but otherwise very nice!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is lovely but, the room was tiny and the nightly valet was the highest I have ever paid - $31 not including tip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful place to stay!"
The location is wonderful, being right by the river. The overall atmosphere of the hotel is extremely warm and inviting. They gave us a complimentary upgrade from the room we originally booked, which was so nice! The room was incredible and the bathtub had jets in it! And they also have a wonderful valet service for your car and luggage. I would definitely […] recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Portland, and I can't wait to go back!

Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks for mentioning the staff. Service is not dead!! At least not here at the RiverPlace. Happy belated Birthday. Ryan
A RiverPlace was very nice, with great service. The rooms are a little small but they were quite nice. The staff did forget to call us to tell us our room was ready, so if you need to wait, you might want to call them first. They have cute bicycles for rent and the staff new my name. The restaurant was very good as well. Easy access with valet and since […] its not right in the middle of downtown, you don't feel rushed to get in and out of your car.

Youthful staff was friendly, efficient and eager to help us enjoy our stay. Complimentary coffee and newspapers in the lobby each morning; wine hour each evening. Excellent restaurant and more restaurants and shops on the Esplanade just outside the door. Beautiful views of the Willamette River. Public transportation (MAX light rail, streetcar, and bus) […] within walking distance. Elegant contemporary décor, comfortable beds, reliable plumbing, and quiet nights! We were very satisfied!

"Hotel River Place"
An excellent retreat even though you are in downtown Portland. Views of the river, great place to walk in the mornings; they even want your dogs to be comfortable. Porfillo, our waiter was superb. All the people were so friendly. This will be our annual retreat hotel to get away from it all...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Short and sweet"
Just an overnight stay between other travels--a small taste of luxury!Genuine Expedia guest review
"In for a 3 day 2 night stay."
A wonderful property! The location is perfect for walking and water activities. We had a great stay and enjoyed the nightly wine tasting!! Room was clean amenities great, only downfall was the mini bar was not restocked. Do not understand that... Overall we would recommend this property and will be back again! Next time we will definitely pay extra […] for a water view. _Perfect for a romantic or family getaway! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay. Will stay there again!!"
We loved this hotel! The room was beautiful & the bed was very comfortable. Was happy to hear that they allow dogs. Next time I will bring mine with me.Genuine Expedia guest review
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We felt welcomed by the concierge and our room was very clean. The only negative was that the beds were only double so it was a bit small for a family of four. However, it was one of the most comfortable beds that we have slept in at a hotel room. The location is wonderful, down in the south part of the […] waterfront where there are lots of places especially parks within walking distance. There are a few restaurants nearby with different price ranges to choose from. We ate at the hotel restaurant for breakfast. It was more expensive but the food was well prepared and delicious. The free wine between 5-6 pm at the front lobby was a wonderful treat. One last thing is that valet parking is expensive, so try to get to the hotel some other way besides a car.

"Good hotel right by the river"
Stayed one night before heading off to the wine country. Were upgraded to a suite and the room was great...quiet and clean. Free wine and beer happy hour in the lobby and great food in the hotel's bar during their happy hour. Nice patio when the weather is good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dog friendly and a glass of wine at check in!"
Lovely hotel right on the river. Staff very dog friendly (including bringing their own dogs to work in case you need a little puppy love while on the road!). Bicycles right at the door so you can take a ride along the river alongside the joggers, racewalkers and kayakers. Restaurant has outdoor seating for a lovely al fresco meal (although it was a […] little pricey, the food was delicious). All rooms have yoga mats, in case you are so inclined, and there is a lovely outdoor sanctuary area for a bit of peace and quiet. Highly recommended! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location with a HIGH price"
My daughter and I participated in the Rose Festival Dragon Boat races and decided to make a mini-vacation of the event by spending a night at the Riverplace. The Riverplace is situated right on the Willamette River and near several very good restaurants. It also has a fine restaurant in the lobby with wonderful river views, and perfect viewing of the […] dragon boat races. The newly decorated rooms had a very 'heavy' feeling - all the furniture was massive and dark. The 'courtyard view' was a view of the windows in the riverside tower - very disappointing. We had to keep our curtains closed to maintain any privacy since the other windows were only about 10 feet away. Although the hotel was convenient to our event and the Waterfront, there are definitely better values and hotels in the area. I really wanted to love this hotel, but you don't get much for the price.

"Nice hotel next to river"
Hotel was great. Excellent location near walking paths & downtown area. Relaxing and quiet. Staff friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
I stayed at the RiverPlace recently for a conference at the World Trade Center which was walking distance. I really enjoyed this hotel. The rooms were fantastic; clean, well appointed and beautiful. I asked for a restuarant recommendation for the first night, and the front desk suggested Veritable Quandary, a Portland mainstay, which is two blocks away, […] and it was superb. I had somehow missed it in my research. I enjoyed the wine tasting that is hosted each evening and met some fellow travelers who were delightful. Also, the view from the porch is spectacular this time of year, with the Canadian geese (and their hatchlings) which are camped there before migrating further. A nice touch is you can "borrow" a bike from the lobby and use along the river's bike path. I wish I'd had time to do that. Overall, a really excellent hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel I love that you had a chance to dine and VQ and you were around to see the new baby Canadian Geese. They are so cute! You will just have to grab a bike and take spin around our beautiful surrounds the next time you are in town. Hopefully it’s not too long. Ryan
It was an awesome Hotel with a great view. The staff were all helpful and friendly. Free drinks were offered daily. Bikes could be rented, but first come first served. We never got the bikes, but still an awesome idea. Not too far from most things, and quiet at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fun in Portland"
Great spot if you want to be out of heart of Portland. Family friendly, very nice staff, accomdations are superb (only complaint are the pillows which are a bit big). Stayed in a suite - was able to check in early! If you are a runner, there are great routes following the east and west banks, crossing a different bridges. Big open green space and the […] river boardwalk is right there to grab a meal. Menu at resturaunt is nice but not really our speed so we went out and explored for meals. Can walk to OMSI! Overall, great location, good athletic club, wonderful staff, and comfortable hotel. We will go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel So true about our location. It’s not only great for runners but for bikers & walkers as well. Our surroundings were made to get out and explore all of Portland. Thanks for such a great review!
"Perfect Place to Stay as a Tourist in Portland OR"
Everything about the hotel was impeccable, from the location, the property, the staff and (especially!) their dog friendliness! Not over the top - just perfect. The hotel is located along the Willamette River waterfront so as soon as you stepped outside the hotel doors you were in a perfect location to walk, sightsee, relax, catch light rail, whatever. […] They even have bikes you can hop on and enjoy the town with. Highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best hotel experience ever"
Our stay at the River Place was one the best hotel experiences we have ever had. All of the staff, and I mean everyone, cheerfully met our every request. They provided maps and recommendations to wineries, arranged for a fishing guide, and served up some fantastic food. Because of its location right on the river, the River Place is a superb choice if […] you are visiting downtown Portland. Kimpton Hotels should be very proud of this team!

"Fantastic Location and Friendly staff"
Beautiful hotel right on the Willamette river. Able to walk to downtown Portland and the light rail station! Excellent Wifi in rooms - would love it if they were a B&B and the couch was larger and more comfortable in the suites.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel Well we have some good news, we are receiving brand new sofa’s with sleeper beds right now. We hope this helps. Thanks for the nice comments about your experience!
Everything was great . But the cab service they use was unacceptable. Driver thought we were the typical tourist, so they drove us out of the way from where we were going. When we mentioned it to them, his answer to us was. What are you counting the blocks. But the hotel was very nice about it when we mentioned it to them..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel I’m so sorry to hear about your cab experience. Glad to hear the staff handled it well. I will touch base with my Guest Service Manager to see if he remembers this incident and we will avoid using this driver again. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
The front desk staff and valet staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help us. The rooms are comfortable as are the beds. We did not have any complaints, and had a wonderful stay. The location is excellent for walking along the river and across to the OMSI.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by RiverPlace, a Kimpton Hotel I just heard a rumor that our city might be providing a water taxi from our location to OMSI over the summer months. Now that would be cool. Hope to see you this summer!
