Staying in Oregon doesn’t have to break the bank. Book one of these hotels in Portland.

Portland, compared to other West Coast cities such as Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, is a very affordable place to travel. With its underrated appeals – mountain ranges, easy access to the ocean and burgeoning food scene – it’s poised to become the ideal budget destination for the west coast of the USA.

Crowne Plaza Portland Downtown

Affordable doesn’t mean lacking in luxuries. Crowne Plaza is decked with plush rooms, plus a spotless indoor pool with accompanying hot tub. Better yet, when the weather allows, the pool has full bay doors that open on to a small sun deck. Wake up to fresh coffee from your in-room Keurig machine and finish the day with a beer at the pub-style bar.
