The Avalon Hotel & Spa offers specials and transportation ideas to help travelers enjoy an affordable, stress-free summer adventure in Portland, Ore.

Set on the banks of the Willamette River, the Avalon Hotel & Spa serves as an ideal setting for summer travelers to enjoy the best of what the Northwest has to offer.

The great outdoors of beautiful Portland, Ore. can be embraced this summer while enjoying four-star comfort, spa amenities and gourmet dining at the end of the day. Guests can access the abundant and varied outdoor recreation that makes Portland famous without the hassle of packing up the camper and sitting behind the wheel by taking advantage of a variety of transportation options to and around Portland. Set on the banks of the Willamette River, the Avalon Hotel & Spa serves as an ideal setting for summer travelers to enjoy the best of what the Northwest has to offer.

Located in Portland’s newly popular South Waterfront district, the setting is serene yet just steps away from favorite summer activities such as hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking and wildlife viewing. Portland’s Waterfront Park — the site of many summer festivals such as the PDX Bridge Festival and MusicfestNW — as well as Portland’s famous food scene, arts and entertainment, and tax-free shopping are just a stone’s throw away yet feel like hours from the tranquility of the Avalon Hotel & Spa.

Mass transit options such as Amtrak, MAX light rail and Portland Streetcar offer a fun, accessible and stress-free way to get to and around Portland while avoiding holiday traffic and pump prices. The Portland Streetcar line runs on a four-mile route through downtown Portland, beginning in the neighborhood of Northwest 23rd and ending in the South Waterfront district. The Amtrak train runs through major cities — such as Vancouver, BC, Seattle, Tacoma, Salem, Ore., Eugene, Ore., Los Angeles, Calif., Chicago, Ill. and Saint Paul, Minn. — to Portland.
