“Best hotel in Portland”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

We have always loved the Riverplace hotel, but this time the staff went way above and beyond. Our son had a surgery the morning we stayed there, and the staff were so helpful in making him comfortable. They even did his laundry since there was not enough time to send it out before he was readmitted the next day.

Now, I know you probably aren't looking for a post-hospital place to stay, but the staff at the Riverplace make everyone feel like you are one of only a few select guests and that your needs are very important. It is a beautiful location, great rooms, and comfortable beds, but the staff make it extraordinary. If you go, say "hello" to Tracy for us!

Room Tip: The river view rooms are excellent if you want to pay for them.

This would have been five stars - but $31.00 a night for parking is a little souring. With our one gripe out there, this hotel is very good. Terrific location, outstanding staff and very nice rooms. If possible snag a river view room. Certainly worth the extra cost. The hotel itself is modern, very well appointed and has a lovely bar area. The happy hour is good value and always busy. The rooms were comfortable with contemporary furnishings. Downtown was a short stroll away. Overall I would highly recommend - especially if you dont drive.

Room Tip: Go for the river view. They also have DVDs for loan at the desk

What a wonderful hotel!
We had a room right on the river. The view was just beautiful at night with the lights from the river and the city. Our room was modern yet cozy and the best, most comfortable bed I've ever slept in!
We came with our dog and it was so easy to have him there with us. There are so many places to walk to, from the hotel. It is close to everything, shopping, restaurants and a nice long river walk.
We can't wait to come back!
The staff was great!
We just loved it!

It has been close to a year since we stayed there for a college tour trip. We have been rooting for our daughter to choose a school in this wonderful town for many reasons, including so that we would have an excuse to stay in this hotel again! Our room did not have a view but was very comfortable and modern with all the amenities that travelers expect. We spent quite a bit of time walking up and down the path along the river, shopped at cute boutiques nearby and had great breakfasts both at the hotel and along the path. The RiverPlace is also very convenient to the free Portland transportation system, so even though we had a car there, we ended up not moving it from several days. Chances that we would stay here again if we were to come back to Portland? You betcha! (How many people write reviews a year after their stay?!)

A stay a year ago or a stay last night it doesn’t matter when we get to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at the RiverPlace! So the question everyone is asking did your daughter choose a school in the great NW?
