It might not have the renown of its sibling cities, but small Ashland – in southern Oregon – is a cultural gem. People come from far and wide for its famous Shakespeare Festival, a series of plays that run from February to October. Year-round recreation draws visitors for hiking in the Siskiyou and Cascade mountain ranges, skiing at Mt Ashland Ski Area and wandering the peaceful Lithia Park. Discover this undercover star yourself with a stay in one of these unique hotels in Ashland.

Ashland Springs Hotel, for art deco details

Wherever you stand in Ashland, there’s one building that towers over everything else – the sugar cube-white, art deco building that houses the Ashland Springs Hotel has been a local landmark since 1925. It originally opened as the Lithia Springs Hotel, but underwent a massive restoration in 2000 and reopened as Ashland Springs Hotel. Inside, European opulence abounds with crystal chandeliers, grand columns and a two-story lobby. Pastel-colored guest rooms feature arched windows framing views of the surrounding mountain ranges.

Best Western Windsor Inn, for chalet-style chic

With its red and green exposed exterior beams, steeply pitched roofs and ornately balustraded balconies, this Best Western is less classic roadside motel, and more Swiss mountain lodge. Cozy guest quarters are situated around an outdoor pool and year-round hot tub, several restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel, and downtown Ashland is just a 10-minute drive. The hotel also recently added electric vehicle charging to the site to accommodate those on an ecofriendly road trip through Oregon.

Lithia Springs Resort, for a spa-themed stay

Take a deep breath and relax at one of the most peaceful hotels in Ashland. Lithia Springs Resort encourages rejuvenation via the freshwater springs found deep beneath the resort. Rich in sulphur and other rejuvenating minerals, the waters’ restorative benefits can be enjoyed in your own soaking tub, mineral shower or at the spa. Peaceful nooks can be found throughout the grounds of the resort, including a saline swimming pool, koi pond and romantic gazebo. Taste Southern Oregon wines from the Applegate Valley at the on-site Wine Garden.

Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites, for old-school cool

At the base of the Siskiyou Mountains, many of the retro-chic rooms and suites of this recently revamped hotel have balconies with expansive mountain views. Snag a spot on a bright orange lounger by the pool and order poolside snacks from Luna Cafe. When you’re ready to venture out, grab a cruiser bike from the hotel and zip around to nearby restaurants and attractions. For a unique souvenir, the residence offers guests the option to make an Oregon gift box from local wines and cheeses – not something you’ll get at all hotels in Ashland.

Plaza Inn & Suites at Ashland Creek, for a Shakespearean showstopper

Farmstead chic describes Country Willows Inn perfectly. Sit in an Adirondack chair under a willow tree or hike beside babbling brooks at this bed and breakfast, located on 5 acres (2ha) of land. Rooms at the inn, as well as a private cottage, were inspired by European country houses. Barn suites take their design influence from Southern Oregon and the Northwest. On summer afternoons, the inn hosts live music in their gardens.
