Portland Hotels Guide
Downtown is where it's at for the best hotels. Two Mobil Three-Star hotels are located right on Broadway and are always top recommendations: The Heathman Hotel (1001 SW Broadway) and Benson Hotel (309 SW Broadway) are venerable hotels that have been renovated to enhance their inherent luxuriousness.
The Mobil Three-Star Avalon Hotel and Spa (0455 SW Hamilton Ct) is a boutique hotel that blends styles from Asia and the Pacific Northwest with dark and light woods to create a soothing space. The two-story lobby is an inviting place to take in local artwork or rest by the fire. The carefully selected treatment menu at the hotel's spa uses natural ingredients, ancient wisdom, and innovative therapy.
Another Mobil Three-Star hotel, Fifth Avenue Suites (506 SW Washington), mixes a touch of whimsy with its luxury and even offers the fireside counseling of a resident pet psychic at this pet-friendly hotel.
No matter where you choose to stay, be aware that the Portland hotel tax is 12.5 percent.
