Portland is on the northwestern border of the state of Oregon, in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States, north of California, and south of Washington. Portland, Oregon’s largest city, is 78 miles (126 km) from the Oregon Coast, at the convergence of two major rivers (the Columbia and Willamette), near the Columbia River Gorge and Mount Hood, Willamette Valley wine country, and other regional destinations. The Portland metro area rests on traditional village sites of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Bands of Chinook, Tualatin Kalapuya, Molalla, and many other tribes.
Portland has a moderate climate, with dry, warm summers and cool, wet winters that bring rain but little snow. The mild weather in Portland makes it easy to enjoy the city’s neighborhoods and outdoor areas year-round. Average November Temperature: 41–53 Fahrenheit (5–12 C). Learn More
Portland is a safe city for visitors. Like many cities, Portland is confronting issues related to social justice, livability, and the coronavirus pandemic. But for a major American city, Portland continues to have comparatively low rates of violent crime. Of course, it makes sense for visitors to Portland to exercise caution, stay aware of their surroundings, and take steps to learn more about safety in Portland.
If you need to make a change or cancel an existing reservation, please contact your hotel directly beginning October 25th.
