Hotels For Every Portland Adventure

The “City of Roses” has taken a less romantic and elegant path, ditching its thorns for fixie bikes and its rose petals, for breweries and dyn-o-mite hand-roasted coffee.

But there’s nothing quite like Portland’s backyard, providing a Jungle Gym for adults who want to share equal custody of their outdoor activities between land, water, and snow.

Post-cycling slumber on this pillow top mattress

The River’s Edge Hotel is happy to provide the bikes during your stay, while having generous friends that have access to boats along the Willamette River Water Trail is completely up to you. But since this hotel property is stationed right along the trail, they encourage you to bike with the river by your side into the downtown Portland area and choose your own impromptu adventure.

Rehydrate with a cosmo at Swine

Located in the heart of Portland’s downtown hub, you don’t have to work up a sweat to claim you took advantage of the city’s majestic rural surroundings. You can simply enjoy a balcony guest room in the Paramount Hotel, wet your whistle at their moonshine and whiskey bar called Swine, wander in the hotel’s front yard, and voilà, you’ll find your outdoor adventure awaiting you in their Director Park.

Dip your toes into a pool, jacuzzi, or even a river

The Red Lion Hotel on the River by Jantzen Beach not only offers access to their outdoor pool, but they do one better, they insist you choose a water adventure on the nearby Columbia River over a soak in their jacuzzi. Book a room here and after you check-in, take to the river on a kayak, or try some paddle-boarding.

Soak in a sudsy bath after your walking tour

Maybe you’re tired of flapping your fins swimming upstream. Start by picking a hotel package from a handful of packages the RiverPlace Hotel offers. This boutique hotel offers the Marry Me In Portland wedding night package, the Choose Your Own Adventure family package, the Romantic Revival at the RiverPlace package, and a few others. Once you’ve chosen your suite accommodations get your swimmies and life vest on—to get in the spirit of exercise—and then take a seat on a jetboat excursion a mile from the hotel and cruise the Willamette River.

Mashed potato snow right outside your lodge

To complete your triathlon adventure vacation, we need to get you on the slopes by staying near this mountain top at Timberline Lodge. Mount Hood is the only mountain in North America that’s open throughout the entire year. We’re dragging you about an hour outside of Portland, but there’s no reason why you can’t check out of one of the above Portland hotels for a few days and then check-in to the Timberline for year-round snow!
