Reed isn’t a run-of-the-mill college, and Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel isn’t a run-of-the-mill hotel, so Reedies and RiverPlacies can easily be one and the same. Located about 15 minutes from the hotel, the small liberal arts school has a big reputation for intellectual curiosity and nonconformity. Steve Jobs and James Beard are famous former students (although, interestingly, neither graduated), and the school is known for its yearlong humanities program and nuclear reactor primarily staffed by undergrads. A huge percentage of alumni — 70 percent — go on to earn a graduate degree.

But you don’t need a PhD to know that staying at Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel just makes sense when visiting Reed (check out upcoming events at the college here). You can enjoy:

  • Spacious guestrooms and suites with river and city views
