Portland may not be your first thought for a luxury escape, but that’s worth reconsidering. Just picture river views cutting through city scenes with snow-studded mountains in the background. Imagine a weekend spent hopping between relaxed moments at the Pacific Ocean, adventurous hikes through massive redwood forests and intimate meals at some of the best restaurants in the country. With incredible views and renowned dining, these five-star hotels in Portland, Oregon – all bookable with Culture Trip – are perfect for a luxury getaway.

Foodie? Check into this downtown Portland hotel with hip dining options. Rest in your stylish room – think local artwork, floor-to-ceiling windows and pink marble accessories – before waking to bagels or grain bowls at Little Rita Coffee Bar. Dinner is Pacific Northwest cuisine at chic Lovely Rita; or Mexican dishes and drinks (the mezcal list is excitingly long) at plant-strewn, white-tiled rooftop restaurant Tope. Finish curled up on a Chesterfield sofa with a nightcap in the atmospherically low-lit basement speakeasy, 2NW5.
