All our Oregon collections:
Oregon’s a varied place. Rocky mountains dotted with volcanoes and glaciers run down into dense, evergreen forests or stark deserts, and finally the land reaches the coastline, in places rugged and in others sandy. And of course there are the cities and towns, which are as varied as the geography. This is a stunning state. But that doesn’t make it easy for our Gurus when they’re trying to come up with their recommendations for the best places to stay in Oregon.
The best places to stay in Oregon range from tiny B&Bs with panoramic ocean views to fabulous five star hotels ripe for city breaking.
If you’re looking for adventures in the great outdoors you might want to head to Mt. Hood and the Oregon Cascades for the skiing; or experience the frighteningly deep and breathtakingly blue waters of Crater Lake and the wonderfully dramatic hiking trails of the Crater Lake National Park. Or, if you like ocean views there’s Cape Perpetua, a volcanic remnant and the highest point on Oregon’s rugged coastline. You might hunt for fossils in John Day County, which has one of the world’s greatest fossil collections; or go white water rafting in Southern Oregon.
Those wanting a relaxing break might taste wine in the Willamette Valley, or take a long drive along the rocky coast. You might visit the tiny city of Ashland, surrounded by the beautiful Rogue Valley and best known for being the home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival - which runs for nine months of the year.
If you want city lights you might see the sights of Salem, or city break in Portland, with its wonderful town-y charm, pretty, varied neighbourhoods and vibrant city centre.
Whatever your reason for visiting, we've put together a comprehensive list of the best places to stay in Oregon, which has something for all tastes and budgets.
