Portland in the fall

Fall Guide

Unique Fall + Hotel Activities in Portland

Fall in love with Kimpton Riverplace Hotel

Welcome to the unique Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel on the edge of Downtown Portland, where the river flows outside our doors. Here at Kimpton RiverPlace, you can experience Portland’s natural landscape with walks down the Willamette River Esplanade or simply enjoy the view from a rocking chair on our front porch. Our goal: to showcase genuine and personalized service with a hint of nostalgia and an abundance of warmth.

Cheers to a picture-perfect fall season!

RiverPlace Community

RiverPlace is part of a tight-knit community that has much to offer: shops, restaurants, parks, and so much more just around the corner. We have curated a list of our favorite spots for guests to enjoy.

Electric Boat Company:
If enjoying peaceful tranquility on the water floats your boat, a little further down the river promenade is The Electric Boat Company. You can rent a boat (no need for a captain’s license) and enjoy a day on the river.

Little River Café:
For lunch, enjoy a fresh salad or sandwich from the Little River Café. Pro tip: We recommend sitting outside for people watching and lively conversations with locals.

Upstream Coffee:
Enjoy a morning walk with a cup of coffee or tea at Upstream Coffee. This quaint café features a variety of seasonal flavors and pastries that will help kickstart your day.
