Fodor's Expert Review Hilton Vancouver Washington

301 W. 6th St., Vancouver, Washington, 98660, United States See on Map

With a great location in downtown Vancouver just steps from the Columbia River waterfront, Hilton Vancouver Washington is a great option for travelers who want easy access to all Portland has to offer coupled with Vancouver’s laid-back charm.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Hilton Vancouver Washington is just north of Portland across the Columbia River. While the commute is by no means terrible, if you want to be within walking distance of some of Portland’s most Instagram-worthy attractions, this isn’t the right spot for you.

room

The rooms at Hilton Vancouver Washington are spacious, comfortable, and tastefully decorated with just the right balance of classic and modern decor. Oh, and an extra bonus: The in-room Wi-Fi is free!

bathroom

Well-maintained and recently updated, the bathrooms at Hilton Vancouver Washington are on the larger side, with plenty of counter space and excellent lighting.

lobby

The lobby is pretty typical of a Hilton property, although this one has a distinctly modern feel. The high ceilings, interesting architectural details, and ample seating make the lobby a popular gathering place for guests of the hotel.

pool

The heated indoor pool is a great place to swim some laps. Follow it up with a dip in the hot tub.

The pool is on the third floor and has awesome views of the city. Make sure to stop by after the sun goes down to see the entire Portland skyline lit up in the distance.

gym

Hilton Vancouver Washington has the only full-service hotel gym in Vancouver. With plenty of cardio equipment, weight machines, and fun fitness accessories (like Bosu balls and resistance bands) to get your sweat on.

dining

Gray’s At The Park Restaurant and Bar, Hilton Vancouver Washington’s on-site restaurant, has an eclectic mix of quick bites and high-end dining options on their menu, all inspired by the Pacific Northwest and made with locally-sourced ingredients.

drinking

Building on their “all things local” theme, Gray’s At The Park Restaurant and Bar has an extensive beer, wine, and spirits list featuring beverages from local breweries, wineries, and distilleries.

LOCATION

Getting Around

There’s a bus stop a few blocks away, but since you’re outside of Portland city limits, your public transportation options are fairly limited. If you want the flexibility to explore the city, you’ll probably want to bring a car. Self-parking is $18 per night, valet is $23.

Restaurants

Take a walk to Nonavo Pizza (2-minute walk), a Vancouver favorite serving up the best wood-fired pizza in the city (just make sure to arrive early; Nonavo only makes 100 pies a day, and once they’re gone, they’re gone). If you want to cross the bridge and venture into Portland, head to Pok Pok (20-minute drive), a Thai restaurant on Restaurant Row on SE Division famous for their Vietnamese Fish Sauce wings.


Bars

The Grocery Cocktail & Social (3-minute walk) is a relaxed local hangout known for their hand-crafted cocktails and their lively late-night scene (the bar stays open until 2am). Low Bar (5-minute walk) is another great option if you’re in the mood for a craft cocktail. Their cozy atmosphere and inventive cocktail menu have made this spot a favorite with Vancouver locals.

WHY WE LIKE IT

Hilton Vancouver Washington is a great option if you want easy access to Portland but want a more relaxed, laid-back atmosphere than what you’d find downtown. This hotel is within walking distance of some of the best restaurants and bars in Vancouver and just a quick drive over the bridge to some of Portland’s best attractions - it’s the best of both worlds!
