Lodgelike waterfront retreat tucked away from the Portland bustle, with wine happy hours and locavore fare
Set in a mansion-like building on the banks of the Willamette River, the RiverPlace has a look that is rustic-modern. With kayaks suspended from the ceiling, cozy fireplaces, Pendleton-esque throw pillows and faux leather headboards, the warm, masculine decor nods to Northwest explorers of yesteryear. Modern touches such as the black-and-white pinwheel nesting tables and curtains in the rooms, reinforce the punchy aesthetic of the Kimpton brand.
Bed and Bath
Renovated in 2012, the guestrooms are romantic and inviting, and so luxe you’ll question your (reasonable) room rate. Linen texture wallpaper and woolen pillows reinforce the enticing warmth of this gorgeous hideaway. Oversize windows offer views of the bridges on the waterfront side of the property. Spacious bathrooms feature rain showers, Frette bathrobes and flattering lighting.
Located in a waterfront community, the hotel is uniquely situated for active guests (of the human or canine variety) and offers a pretty alternative to the business-oriented central downtown, where most the of city’s hotels are located. Portland’s booming food scene has not yet reached the waterfront, where restaurants tend to traffic in views, but the alfresco dining and seasonal fare at the on-site Three Degrees restaurant is charming. Stop there for happy hour or breakfast. The hotel offers free passes to a gym just a few minutes' walk away and partners with a local spa to offer in-room services.
