Amongst it all, attractions such as Pittock Mansion tell the history of Portland.
A wonderful selection of hotels, boutiques, B&Bs, hostels and holiday rentals are abundantly represented in the city. This includes the RiverPlace Hotel – a 4-star luxury option with a central location close to the downtown area and International Rose Test Garden.

Get out of town
Enjoying Portland's scenic location couldn't be easier. Forest Park in the city boasts more than 2,000 hectares of forest within minutes of downtown Portland. Or, venture approximately one hour from the city and you'll hit Columbia River Gorge. This lush pine forest boasts more than 90 waterfalls, numerous hiking trails and spectacular mountain views.
As all of this is so close to the city, it's entirely possible to stay overnight in one of the many hotels in Portland and take day trips to the surrounds. Though, if you'd like to get back to nature, there are a handful of accommodation options in neighbouring Hood River. This includes the Hood River Hotel, which is a charming boutique with national Historic Landmark status.

There are plenty of hotels within minutes of the airport, providing visitors plenty of choice in terms of style and price.
