How to get there
Delta Air Lines now operates summer seasonal daily direct flights between London Heathrow and Portland International Airport. For more details, visit delta.com.
When to go?
Portland is beautiful and lively year-round. Summer can be hot and sunny and stretching into perfect warm, balmy evenings. Winter can be rainy and bring snow, but is generally mild. Spring and autumn weather are unpredictable, so pack warm clothing for layered dressing, rain gear and walking shoes for a comfortable stay.
Where to stay
If you want to stay in the city itself, Jupiter, Jupiter NEXT, Lucia, Sentinel, Deluxe and Hoxton are all good options. If you’re planning on hiking around Mt Hood, choose between Timberline Lodge and the Mt Hood Oregon Resort. McMenamins Grand Lodge makes a great base in the Tualatin Valley. Or, head to one of Ruby Vineyards’ two cottages nearby for a unique farmstay. Clatskanie River Inn is another good option in Columbia County.
