Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel

Nestled on a pedestrian Riverwalk just steps from the Willamette River banks, the Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel offers guests a relaxing boutique hotel experience with the gorgeous downtown Portland skyline readily in sight.

Why do we recommend this Portland hotel? 

While the Kimpton RiverPlace’s accommodations are truly state-of-the-art, it’s the little, above-and-beyond things that have likely earned the Kimpton its place as TripAdvisor’s top-rated Portland hotel.

Whether it’s a yoga mat in every room, a General Manager who leads running expeditions, an evening wine reception with local beers, or even two Tesla charging stations, it’s impossible for any guest not to feel completely looked after at the Kimpton RiverPlace.

Named for a series of sentinels atop its roof, the Sentinel is one of Portland’s oldest hotels, having been built 98 years ago.

Despite the its legacy and history being found around every corner (and on its façade, which is exclusively made of glazed terra cotta), the Sentinel has evolved to provide modern amenities perfectly reflective of the alternative Portland spirit including rooftop beehives that produce artisanal honey, pet care, and even a pillow menu!


Why stay here when visiting Portland?

Though the Sentinel excels at the small things, this luxury boutique is no slouch when it comes to providing its guests with major amenities either.

From bottom – including the ground floor Jake’s Grill, one of Portland’s most famous seafood restaurants – to top – including the City Terrace Studio Suite, featuring an outdoor terrace replete with a working fire pit and stunning skyline views – the Sentinel has everything necessary to guard a perfectly posh Portland getaway!
