We booked RiverPlace for our last night of vacation in Oregon and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our spacious room with a king size bed overlooked joggers and walkers below, boaters sailing and boats docked on the Willamette River, cars and trucks traveling the Markham Bridge, and a peak at Mt Hood beyond.
The room itself was located away from nightlife and any hint of noisy neighbors; we found the room easy to fall asleep in; we did wake up to train horns a couple times in the middle of the night, but we were able to get back to sleep, maybe because the bedding was so luxurious!
We enjoyed being close enough to downtown that we could walk to the restaurant we had booked, and close enough to the Willamette River to be able to enjoy a stroll along the pedestrian walkway. We found the area in front of and to the south of RiverPlace much more conducive to walking without being barraged by skateboarders or homeless people than the area north of it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast in the hotel's restaurant and liked looking out to the joggers and bicyclists on the path below and the early morning paddlers on the Willamette. The recreational activities just outside the hotel made us wistful and wanting a second day.
The room rate, valet parking, and extra cost for breakfast certainly makes this a higher end lodge stay, but it's definitely worth it. We'll be back. Highly recommended for a 'best of' Portland experience.
