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. The inn is set on seven acres of pinot grapevines at the heart of the Willamette Valley wine country and has been recognized not only as one of the best hotels in Oregon but also one of the best hotels in the world.
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.
Hotels in Oregon for urban adventurers include showstoppers like The Nines, located in Portland’s city center. 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.
Throughout Oregon, the McMenamins chain of pubs and hotels offers affordable rooms and eateries set in renovated historic buildings. For example, the Kennedy School, near the buzzy Alberta Arts District in North Portland, is housed in a former elementary school. Guests can drink house-brewed beers in its Detention Bar or catch a flick in its on-site movie theater, set in the school’s auditorium.
Old Hollywood-style glamour pervades this elegant, slightly-off-the-beaten-path hotel; you’ll feel it from the moment you ascend the wide marble steps into the grand lobby, with its ornately carved moldings and coffered ceilings.
