Though it's not as popular as California's coastline, the Oregon Coast is filled with similarly beautiful beaches, rocky cliffs, and spots for whale and seal spotting. Including cities like Brookings, Lincoln City, and Cannon Beach, the coast is dotted with charming seaside towns that make it a popular spot for families, couples, and friends alike. If you're planning a trip to the Pacific and are looking for an upscale stay with comfy beds, ample amenities, and excellent location, then you've come to the right place. Take a look at the best luxury hotels in the Oregon Coast!
Cannery Pier Hotel is a luxury boutique hotel that sits practically on top of the Columbia River; it's literally built 600 feet out into the water on top of the pilings of the old Union Fish Cannery. With outstanding views (rooms look directly out onto the river) and upscale amenities, the hotel is a good choice for the high-end traveler who doesn't mind that it's located a bit more than a mile from the center of Astoria. It's a better choice for couples than families, as there's plenty of romantic touches inside the guest rooms -- like gas fireplaces -- and in common spaces -- like a nightly wine reception -- geared towards adults. There's an on-site spa, fitness center, free Wi-Fi, complimentary daily breakfast, and two classic cars that shuttle guests around the area -- but no restaurant on-site.
The Ocean Lodge is a four-pearl hotel that aims to be a home-away-from-home for its guests on the south end of Cannon Beach. 45 rooms and suites include working fireplaces, kitchenettes, and some ocean views. With cookies and organic coffee in the lobby at all hours, a library full of books for all ages, free DVDs to borrow, and a free continental breakfast, the hotel is a popular choice for families (and their pets) who choose it as their home base on the Oregon Coast again and again. Note that there is no on-site restaurant and past guests have complained about noise from little ones.
The charming, upper-middle-range Cannon Beach Hotel is located on Hemlock Street, the quaint beach town's main thoroughfare. All 10 rooms are elegant, with Edwardian-style decor, and some have four-poster beds, fireplaces, and clawfoot tubs. Although amenities are limited at this tiny boutique property, there's an excellent on-site cafe with a breakfast service (only for hotel guests) and all guests get free access to nearby Cannon Beach Fitness, open 24-hours daily.
