Perfect in Portland

Posted Dec 16, 2017
Very friendly, comfortable hotel with super service. The happy hour in the lobby was a treat. One caveat: if you use car service make sure you put in the address correctly - the GPS seems inexact on this riverfront location and local drivers don’t seem familiar with this hotel.

Denied reservation at check in!

Posted Dec 12, 2017
Staff denied my reservation at check in even after I showed a receipt from Expedia. They made me call Expedia and continued insisting my payment would not be honored for most of an hour. Amazing!

Nice newer hotel right on the water

Posted Dec 11, 2017
The hotel is located on the riverfront separated from the water only by a jogging path. All the other hotels were separated from the water by a busy frontage street. There is a small marina close by where we were treated to a Christmas boat parade two of the three nights we stayed. It was fantastic. The hotel was clean with an accommodating staff. I would stay again. Jeff F.

Quiet, elegant, comfy room. Extremely courteous and helpful staff. Will try to stay at Kimpton Riverplace again on my next trip to Portland.

Location: Located on the river was beautiful. Quiet.
This was the best hotel experience we have experienced to date. Everything was perfect. A beautiful clean room and an amazing staff. We will be staying at Kimpton wherever we go from now on.

Beautiful view!

Posted Nov 6, 2017
One night stay but would have loved to stay longer! Had a room with rivetfront views that was perfect. Staff was professional and helpful. Away from the main areas but well within walking distance.

Perfect Riverfront Hotel

Posted Oct 10, 2017
Pros: Location, beautiful suite.
Location: Great location in downtown Portland literally on a riverfront promenade / marina
We love Kimpton properties, and Riverfront did not disappoint. It might be slightly older than our favorites (Triton in SF and Marlowe in Boston), but beautiful spot in a great location. It's only too bad that many of the surrounding restaurants have closed. That said, there is no shortage of excellent eateries close by. We'll be back!

Thank you Barbara! I agree, there are many excellent restaurants in close proximity and a few right on the RiverPlace Esplanade. I hope you come again soon to try a few!

Bathtub plumbing bizarre and difficult to figure out and operate. TV system inadequate-- remote barely worked and no way to change input so esternal devices could play?
