The Destination
Comprised of close-knit neighborhoods of emerald trees and quiet streets, a downtown of lively entertainment, and a food scene that caters to predictable and daring tastes, Portland, Oregon, is a city that thrives on contradictions. The 600,000 residents of this Pacific Northwest outpost have "kept it weird" with famous doughnuts topped with unlikely flavors, a sartorial penchant for outside-the-box fashions, and quaint shops to suit all tastes. But it all shares a space with classic draws: lush parks, local brews, and world-class museums that round out this town's irresistible personality.

The Digs
Seated on the banks of the scenic Columbia River, The Red Lion Hotel avoids the dizzying downtown hubbub by virtue of its peaceful Hayden Island location. Standard King Rooms maintain clean, modern lines accented by large windows, as well as pillow-top mattresses draped in high-thread-count linens. Flat-screen televisions, complimentary high-speed wireless Internet, and a bevy of cable channels and on-demand movies round out your in-room entertainment, while The Energy Zone Fitness Center and outdoor pool and hot tub are both great ways to stoke your pulse before hopping a free ride to the light rail stop on your way to the city center.

The Diversions
Take advantage of Portland's generous bike lanes with a rental from Portland Bicycle Tours. Pedal your way from sight to sight, being sure to stop and pick up a read at Powell's City of Books, America's biggest independent tome-pusher—you can then turn pages among among camellia, osmanthus, and magnolias at Lan Su Chinese Garden. When lunch rolls around and the clouds roll away, picnic at Pittock, a 1914 mansion nestled in the West Hills, 1,000 feet above the skyline. Spend a lively First Thursday in the Pearl District, where the warehouses have transformed into galleries, lofts, and boutique shops. The Portland Farmers Market offers a treasure trove of organic delights, which pair swimmingly with any one of countless spirits from the city's thirty breweries or several nearby vineyards.

  • "The rooms in this four-story hotel, on the Columbia River, have balconies and good views of the river and Vancouver. Public areas glitter with brass and bright lights that accentuate the greenery and the burgundy, green, and rose color scheme."
