Editor’s Review of RiverPlace Hotel - A Kimpton Hotel

Far more manageable to navigate than San Francisco to the south and Seattle to the north, Portland is an easy city to get around. Traffic is at a minimum and you can always find a place to park. Many families are realizing that you don't have to stay in the heart of the city to see all the sights. In fact, you can stay at the RiverPlace Hotel on the banks of the Willamette River and only be a five-minute drive from the restaurants and stores downtown, and a 10-minute jaunt to Washington Park, home to the Oregon Zoo, Portland Children's Museum and the Portland Japanese Garden.

What you get in return is a quiet residential neighborhood, bordered by the Tom McCall Waterfront Park, the bike and jogging path called the Westside Riverwalk,
... more and views of the sailboats bobbing in the water with the Marquam Bridge in the backdrop. An added bonus is free use of the pool and all the fitness facilities at the city's finest health club, the Oregon Athletic Club, just down the block. Feel like a workout outdoors? Grab one of the complimentary bikes and take a spin on the Riverwalk.

The only lodging overlooking the Willamette River in Portland, the RiverPlace Hotel was acquired by Kimpton Hotels. All rooms have been renovated, including the corner suites with a master bedroom, living room with a pullout sofa and a small pied-a-terre with views of the marina. Expect other Kimpton amenties, such as a daily happy hour, pet-friendly rooms and goldfish to "rent." The RiverPlace Hotel offers a serene setting with all the major perks of an urban lodging.

The Riverfront Junior Suite features a small pied-a-terre that opened to the river and boats docked in the nearby harbor. Enter a spacious living room with a sofa that converts to a double bed sleeper. Across from the sofa is the first of two flat screen televisions. The closet for both rooms is located across from the bathroom upon entering the suite, and houses a safe, iron and ironing board. The bathroom features rainforest showerheads. Also in the living room is a table with two chairs, binoculars for taking a closer look of the river and available goodies like Patton Valley pinot noir from Oregon's Willamette Valley, almonds, nuts, M&Ms and potato chips. The master bedroom features a king-sized bed, flat-screen television and access to the balcony. The Junior Suite is 410 square feet.

Other room options include the slightly smaller RiverFront Double Double Deluxe Rooms with two double beds, a sitting area, and those same water views. For more space, consider the RiverFront One- or Two-Bedroom Suite located in an adjacent building. The suites also include a full service kitchen with an oven, microwave, refrigerator, silverware and kitchenware. You'll also appreciate the washer and dryer, wood-burning fireplace in the living room, and private balcony with chairs and a table overlooking the Willamette River.
