Waterfront location with Willamette River views
Some say attention to detail could improve
When you book a stay at the Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel, you can anticipate a picturesque view of Portland's Willamette River. And this hotel's amenities are pretty nice too: Flat-screen LCD TVs, in-room yoga mats and Atelier Bloem toiletries, to name just a few. While many hotels in the Kimpton brand attract trendier travelers with their bright, quirky decor, RiverPlace takes a different approach. Guest rooms are adorned in muted hues and earth-toned tiling, adopting a more naturalistic, cozy feel. Some other draws, according to recent visitors, are the hotel's on-site restaurant, King Tide Fish & Shell, and its excellent location. However, travelers caution that the attention to detail could stand to improve and that they expected more at a property of this caliber. What's more, guests are charged a daily $20 amenities fee, which offers 10% off the cost of valet parking, among other services. However, members of the IHG Rewards Club program will be happy to learn they can earn and redeem points at this property.

Critic Reviews



When the weather opens up, so does the hotel — the lobby area flows through to the Willamette-facing side, and you get a real hit of the unique riverfront location.



This waterfront property is the perfect escape for visitors looking for the best of both worlds: easy access to the city and the outdoors.

Lonely Planet


The hotel itself exudes a craftsman-style design, and the top-notch restaurant (think grilled wild-line caught salmon or roasted Portobello Wellington) has a swank bar with those same river views.
