Straddling the Deschutes River and on the edge of the Cascade Mountains, Bend – about three hours’ drive from Portland, Oregon – is a mainstay for outdoor sports and golf. When you need to unwind after all that fresh air, stay at one the best hotels in town, bookable on Culture Trip.

Some say Bend is an outdoor playground best explored off the beaten path. Others think it’s a state of being that you can embrace on foot, on two wheels or on your way to the next brewery. In reality, you shouldn’t try to define this high-desert city. Simply stay at one of the best hotels in Bend and you’ll see why neither side of the Deschutes River needs labels.

1. LOGE Bend

LOGE is so close to the slopes that you can practically sleep with your skis on and coast right over to the mountains when you wake up. The Haul Trail leads from the ski and gear lockers to a number of other connecting trails. You can easily spend all day dirtying up your hiking boots, but don’t be afraid to hang around LOGE for a while longer. Movie nights, outdoor concerts and impromptu conversations at the Entrada Café and Taproom are what makes this trailside retreat special.

2. Campfire Hotel

The joys of camp culture mixed with a little urban adventure await your crew at Campfire Hotel. Shack up in the bunk beds of a king suite and crank up the volume on the vintage radio. Cinephiles and nostalgia lovers will be keen to know that the world’s last Blockbuster Video is around the corner. Sit around the fire pits and listen to a Millennial spin a yarn about the horrific late fees and out-of-stock new releases that terrorized their childhoods.

3. Tetherow Hotel

What’s more impressive than tackling Mount Bachelor’s 4,318 acres (1,747ha) of terrain? Sinking a one-putt eagle on the par five 13th hole at Tetherow Golf Club. The links provide ample views of Mount Hood, the Three Sisters and Broken Top, so you’ll see Bend’s beauty without ever being far from your fully equipped vacation home. Solomon’s offers up a homemade dessert that pairs perfectly with the sunset, if you fancy a celebratory dinner after showing the 18-hole championship course who’s boss.

4. The Oxford Hotel Bend

Take a break from the mountains and get to know Bend at the Oxford Hotel. Waking up with morning coffee on your private terrace will never get old, especially when you’re strumming a loaner Breedlove guitar and sipping a fresh cup of coffee. If your fingers aren’t as tight on the strings as they used to be, you can still tap your toes to live jazz music downstairs. You can explore more of Bend’s arts and music scene around downtown from a complimentary cruiser bike.

5. Pine Ridge Inn

When you check into Pine Ridge Inn, they hand you a craft beer. We won’t blame you if you’re sold on the stay and stop reading right now. If you need a little more convincing, all rooms have fireplaces and king-sized beds, and most have great natural views. The hotel’s low rates are also a draw for travelers aiming not to sink their budget into the Deschutes. And before you ask, yes, you can swap your free brew for a glass of wine if you prefer.

6. Residence Inn by Marriott Bend

Business in Bend? Make the most of it at Residence Inn by Marriott. If high-speed internet, a desk and a little silence are all you need, remote working will be effortless in your suite. Residence Inn is near the business and entertainment districts if you’ve got in-person meetings on the agenda, but we love the location for its after-hours proximity to Greg’s Grill along the river. There’s just nothing like cutting into a wood-fired steak at the end of a long workday.

7. Wall Street Suites

Chain Hotel, Luxury

If you want bikes, beer and the best of Bend, Wall Street Suites will kindly oblige. Seated in the center of town, though built with insulated walls to drown out downtown, you’ll sleep easy in your studio suite each night. Bring your dog along for the ride, and they’ll be treated to a sweet stay as well. Amenities including a doggie bag full of goodies and an on-site dog park are sure to get their tails wagging.

8. Pronghorn Resort

How does high-desert living mixed with luxury hotel amenities sound for your Bend holiday? Pronghorn Resort’s Huntington Lodge spoils you with views on views on views – pool views from your private balcony, golf course views from your private cabana and Cascade Mountain views from the putting green. Catch a glimpse whenever you can; we have a feeling you’ll spend a lot of time staring down the stem of a wine glass at the Trailhead Grill or at the back of your eyelids during massages at the spa.

9. SpringHill Suites by Marriott Bend

Just steps from the Deschutes and Old Mill District, you can do just about anything when making SpringHill Suites your home base. Might we suggest a swim in the pool or some time lounging in the hot tub? That is, unless you consider yourself a cognoscente of the craft brew variety. In that case, bounce between Monkless Belgian Ales, Immersion Brewing, Crosscut and the dozens of other breweries within walking distance of your suite. No worries if you can’t rally for a full night out; SpringHill Suites’ bar has a handful of local favorites on tap.
