Finding a hotel in Portland is not tricky – there are hotels dotted all over the city, from the airport to the suburbs. The hard part will be finding the hotel that best suits your needs and your budget.
So if you’re looking for a cheap Portland hotel that’s still cool and in the middle of everything, check out the following options.
Here are some factors to consider when choosing a hotel in Portland:
A 5 star Portland hotel will probably not be the same thing as a 5 star New York hotel – and it will not cost the same amount, either! If your travel budget allows for it, you could upgrade to a higher level of hotel in a city like Portland, where your money will go a bit further. On the other hand, there are plenty of charming hotels throughout the city that have fewer stars but are no less clean or safe.
Some of the more expensive Portland hotels are likely going to be right in the center of downtown, or along the river. But if your budget is your primary concern, staying in a hotel that is not right in the middle of everything is not a bad thing in Portland – with an outstanding public transit system, including buses and a great light-rail network, you can probably get anywhere you want to go from the front door of your hotel. Just make sure your hotel is close to public transit before you book.
Portland is one of those fantastic cities that does not have severely cold winters or long months of intensely hot summers – but it still has a high and low season for travel. So, if you have some flexibility with your travel plans, you might consider visiting during the late fall or winter to get better rates. You could end up paying a fraction of the cost of a 4 star hotel room because demand is down. Just do not forget to bring your umbrella.
