You’ll feel worlds away from the city on the porch of this modern lodge on the Willamette River, but the fact is downtown is only a mile away. A recent renovation left this 84-room property with a decidedly Portland identity: Now, yoga mats and Pendleton pillow shams are standard room accoutrements, and there’s a fleet of bicycles for guest use. Right outside your door you’ll find Tom McCall Waterfront Park, a giant, green lawn adjacent to a riverfront hike-and-bike trail, and the Hawthorne Bridge, the gateway to some of Stumptown’s coolest up-and-coming neighborhoods. At the end of the day, the hotel’s fire pit–equipped patio makes for a prime place to unwind.
