Having to drive around a city you’re not super familiar with can be a total drag. But Portland is an extremely walkable city - and if you choose the right hotel, you can easily get away with going the entire trip without ever traveling on four wheels.

Committed to exploring the city sans vehicle? Here are the five most walkable hotels in Portland.


Orenco Hotel

Why it made the list

Located in nearby Hillsboro (home to many of Portland’s big employers, including Yahoo! And Intel), Orenco Hotel is a great option for business travelers who want the walkability usually reserved for downtown. Located in Orenco Station, the urban city center of Hillsboro, the hotel is just steps away from some of the city’s best restaurants and shopping.

RiverPlace Hotel

Why it made the list

Located just steps from the Willamette River, Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel has easy access to the walking trails of Tom McCall Waterfront Park, which is great for a quiet walk on the water, or just a few minutes from the center of downtown, where you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city. In terms of walkability, it’s the best of both worlds.
