Summer Escapes: Where to Stay This Summer

Get out of town and find an adventure.

Looking to see something new this summer? We get it, Portland summers are great but there are only so many patio happy hours you can take before you're itching for a different view.

So get out for a weekend! Oregon summers are made for adventures—so go find some outside of the city. Try one of the hotels below that offer a great night's stay and nearby attractions you must see in the warm Oregon weather. Trust us, it's the refresh you need to survive summer in the city.
