Dinner at Andina;s with Joe and Raechal....OUTSTANDING
Dinner at Gruners....GREAT
... and outfits that barely covered anatomy that I thought needed covering! Where do you wear something like this? Certainly not in Deschutes or Powell’s Book Store which were a stone’s throw away!
By this time most of our men were really hungry so us ladies herded them in the right direction. When time to order, this is the first time I had heard the term ...
... the food carts, but mostly they were all gyros, and I wasn't really feeling that for lunch. So around the corner from Brooks Brothers, was Mayas, a nice Mexican place. I had two tacos filled with chorizo. After lunch, I decided that I would go back to Gresham and see what that was like, but not before grabbing a few snacks at Safeway. I needed a haircut, so I stopped ...
Caroline was enjoying the flying - or at least wasn't getting sick ;-) - so we opted to forego another US city in Seattle and fly directly to Alaska. That would give us more time for activities there and to get Maggie checked out before the Pacific crossing. Beforehand though I really wanted to check out Portland. I'd heard so much about it and was excited to get a first impression. Apparently every Saturday is market day in downtown near the river, so ...

We eventually both had to stop ourselves from even going to the shops as the prices and sales were just way to tempting and we were started to have serious concerns about how we were going to get everything back to LA without the RV and then back to Australia. We called Air New Zealand and pre paid for 3 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews RiverPlace Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Portland
Just got back from a weekend trip to Portland - a spa weekend that also included a concert at a nearby park. The Riverplace was a great location for us, as the spa was one block down on the river walkway...as well as two nice restuarants that we dined at during our stay. I highly recommend the Portland Day Spa next door - for a small spa, they do a wonderful job. If you get any foot treatments, it includes wine, your own flatscreen tv and choice of shows from their dvd collection. Talk about pampering...there was no rushing us out.
My husband and I spent five wonderful days at the Riverplace. The room was beautiful with a great view of the park and river. We had a jr. suite on the fourth floor. The bed was fabulous - as good as the heavenly bed at the Westin Hotels. My husband's favorite part was the pillow menu - they offer almost any style of pillow you can imagine. I loved the large L-shaped sofa where both my husband and I could stretch out to read or watch tv.
Wow! I wasn't sure what to expect after some of the reviews, but we tried it out. We travel with our 2 dogs, so we are always limited of 4-5 star hotels that will allow them. We usually end up at a Hilton, but when I phoned the Hilton, I got a terrible attitude and decided to phone Riverplace. The lady on the phone was excellent. She handled all of my questions and requests without a problem.
This hotel is really pretty, but the service is terrible! They need to retrain or rehire all their employees if they hope to stay in business.
We asked for a quiet courtyard view room and also asked if we could check in early and have a referigerator in our room. We were accomodated in all these requests. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed was divine with two down comforters, down pillowtop mattress, plus down pillows. The room was very quiet, though the view was not of what I would call a "courtyard". It was of a roof.
Luxury and Comfort with a View
The Riverplace Hotel is all we could hope for in a hotel. The setting is gorgeous, the rooms are beautiful and the service is excellent here.
Many say the 5th Ave. Suites is now THE place to stay in Portland, but give me the water views anytime!
This is definitely our first choice of lodging while in the Portland area. The access to the athletic club is a big plus and the private spa is also really nice.
Good job, Larkspur! Your renovations are amazing. First-class luxury and very contemporary feel!
Great service & location
The Riverplace is a great place to stay! The service is wonderful and it's fun to watch the river. The room service menu is limited, but there are many quality restaurants nearby.
A Wonderful Hotel!
I stayed at this hotel with my husband and two children over a weekend--it was fantastic. The views are beautiful. The hotel is convenient to everything downtown and has extremely easy access to/from I-5. The staff is very attentive and eager to please. Despite the fact that the renovations were in full swing, the room was quiet and comfortable, and the construction crew was completely unobtrusive. I especially liked the Aveda bath products provided. If the hotel had had a pool on site, my 9-year-old would have declared Riverplace "perfect". As it was, we are all eager to stay there again on our next visit to Portland.
Loved the Riverplace Hotel
We stayed at the Riverplace in August 2003 for 5 nights. We had 2 children & my husband and I. Our suite was lovely, the staff could not have been more helpful, my children received a very large "welcome cookie" with their names iced on the top! The location was wonderful with many fine and fun outside restaurants close by. This hotel is right on the edge of downtown by the Willamette River and is in an urban park where people kayak, boat, skate, and bike! Lovely hotel in a lovely location. I would stay here again.
