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.
Gorgeous gardens surround the retro-themed, 13-room hotel. Be sure to ask for one of the deluxe rooms—they come with their own breakfast nooks.
This is pure Portland: creative, authentic, irreverent. Rooms in the revamped 1912 hotel are decorated with murals and fitted with vintage claw-foot tubs; bedside tables are fashioned from secondhand tomes (the famous Powell’s Books is just down the block).
Comfy quarters, with flat-screen TVs and Internet access.

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.
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.
