Due to its relatively rainy winter months, the best time to plan a trip to Portland — and to the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Hotel deLuxe — is when the sun shines. June through September will offer the best weather and a variety of fun festivals, including NW Music Fest, North American Organic Brewers Festivals (with more than 50 beers to try), PDX Bridge Festival (celebrating the 10 bridges that connect the east and west sides of the city), the Portland Rose Festival, jazz and blues fests and more. Plus, Hotel deLuxe’s Top Down: Rooftop Cinema series means weekly rooftop movie screenings at dusk during the summer with panoramic city views, live music, cocktails, beer and barbeque.
Or, try the elegant luxury hotel in October, when the weather turns crisp and room rates descend from summer highs. This month is the best time for fall foliage viewing, and Wildwood Trail at nearby Washington Park offers an amazing fall foliage walk.
