    Portland’s highest concentration of hotels is found in the city’s compact and vibrant downtown. No matter where you stay downtown — and the options range from boutique properties to international brands and luxury options — you’ll be within easy walking distance of great shopping, dining, museums and entertainment.

    Thanks to Portland’s great transportation system, it’s also easy to hop on the light rail or streetcar to access other must-see neighborhoods, from the Pearl District and Northwest Portland to the Central Eastside, and attractions like the Oregon Zoo. And the Oregon Convention Center is mere minutes away via MAX light rail.


    MAX light rail: Blue, Green, Red, Yellow lines
    TriMet bus: Multiple lines
    Portland Streetcar: North-South, Central Loop lines
