Why We RecommendFrom the moment you approach our stunning Portland home, you’ll note that pride of craft runs deep—in our city and in the waterside haven we’ve so thoughtfully designed. (Just check out our warm, glowing lanterns and a handmade kayak, crafted in nearby Hood River, that greets your arrival.) Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel has carefully curated unique experiences for all our guests (kids and pets, too), showcasing only the best of what this region has to offer. This attention to detail and commitment to quality extends from the kind employees we staff and the fresh ingredients we cook to the indulgent amenities offered and creative programming scheduled. You’ll find deep local knowledge and friendly folks ready to point you in the right direction, be it toward hot spots downtown or calming getaways in nature. In our idyllic world, one can start the day sipping a cup of small-batch roasted coffee in a riverside courtyard and close it down by toasting s’mores sticks under a star-sprinkled Oregon sky.
