Hotels in Oregon
With accommodations that range from historic alpine lodges to LEED-certified spas, hotels in Oregon put an emphasis on local flavor and eco-friendly design.
The Allison Inn & Spa, for one, incorporates native berries, honey, roses and more into the menu of its full-service, LEED-certified spa.

Many Oregon hotels bank on their picturesque surroundings, offering their guests easy access to its natural landmarks. Visitors at the coast can warm up from a blustery day on the beach at the Arch Cape House, where suites feature ocean views, soaking tubs and rain showers for two.

The LEED-certified space attracts A-list clientele with its modern design and its on-site eateries. Dine at the all-organic Urban Farmer restaurant at ground level or head to the rooftop for panoramic city views from its Departure lounge.
