With Things to Do in Portland

Explore all that Portland has to offer

Take advantage of our prime location and explore the many things to do in Portland that makes this city great. Here’s where to start:

  • Bikes. There is such a thing as a free ride when you stay at Hotel Monaco, and when available, we’ll hook you up with a complimentary bike to explore Portland, America’s most bike-friendly city.
  • Coffee. A little jolt of java in the a.m. is popular all across the country, but few places take coffee culture quite as seriously as Portland. Stop by Spella Caffe for a finely balanced espresso or Barista for a full-flavored cup of joe (and yes, as the name implies, the baristas are fantastic).
  • Beer. You may have heard us referred to as Beervana, and that’s an apt description, considering Portland has more breweries than any other city on earth. A craft brew is waiting for you.
  • Day Trips. You won’t run out of activities within the city limits, but we’re also a great jumping-off point for trips to the Willamette Valley, where Oregon produces its famed Pinot Noirs; Mount Hood, a mecca for hikers and skiers alike; and the Oregon coast, a breathtaking collection of quaint towns, rugged cliffs, and windswept vistas.
