Not far from Portland, Oregon, Hood River is a launching point for a plethora of outdoor activities like hiking, cycling, windsurfing, kite boarding, whitewater rafting and year-round skiing on nearby Mt. Hood. It's also known for its farm-to-table food scene, with u-pick farms, award-winning restaurants and wineries and breweries within a walk, bike ride or drive away.
On the National Register of Historic Places, the Hood River Hotel is Hood River’s oldest and most beloved vintage hotel. Located in the center of downtown, guests can head to the coolest hangouts from this hotel base camp.

Built in 1912 with a history intertwined with the start of the railroad, the hotel has been a mainstay in Hood River for more than a century. In 2017, under new ownership, it received a modern facelift. Renovations to restore the historic building into a modern hotel with vintage charm took two years.
The entire property has accommodations for up to 123 overnight guests in 41 rooms and suites, ranging from Studio Suites to Family Suites. With exposed brick, vintage decor and photos and unique furnishings, the Hood River Hotel is a charming mountain haven.
