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.

On the northern end of Oregon's untamed coastline is Cannon Beach, a seaside town where Mother Nature has left her fingerprint in the form of Haystack Rock, a 235-foot basalt monolith rising from the shore.

McMenamins Old St. Francis Hotel is a converted 1936 elementary school with 19 guest rooms and four rental cottages—plus a microbrewery, restaurant, and movie theater offering at-your-seat drinks and dinner service.

On a bluff overlooking the rugged Pacific coastline, the 2007-opened inn is made of stone, steel, cable, and glass. Its seven 1,000-square-foot-suites have white wood-beam ceilings and understated accents such as cream-colored sofas and mahogany tables.

The only boutique lodging option in the trendy Nob Hill neighborhood, Northrup Station is one of those easily missed gems that even locals may not realize is a hotel.

The property offers one-room cabins with knotty-pine walls.

The beautifully converted cannery right on a pier in Astoria has luxurious, glass-fronted rooms with gas fireplaces (and in some cases claw-foot tubs). Private decks have stunning views of boats trolling the Columbia River.

Take advantage of the two golf courses, multiple swimming pools, and yoga, tennis, and fly-fishing classes.

The lodge is set on a 253-acre lake at the edge of the Deschutes National Forest. Native American prints decorate the 11 rooms, which have vaulted ponderosa pine–beamed ceilings, stone fireplaces, and soft Denali blankets.

To see the future of green design, take a close look at the Nines (as in “dressed to the…”), set on the top floors of the former Meier & Frank department store overlooking Portland’s Pioneer Square.
