Portland-Waterfront1NOTE – Unless driving, you’ll need to take a MAX light rail train to the World Forestry Center  in the same area as the Oregon Metro Zoo. Your stop will be the Oregon Metro Zoo/Washington Park MAX Station. The WFC is located in the middle of Portland, easily accessible by car and MAX.

But maps make it appear an easy/leisurely walk to the WFC from downtown. But in fact, it’s a convoluted and steep area to negotiate, as the WFC is located near a very large and heavily forested urban park. Unless you know where you’re headed, it’s easy to get lost, and cell coverage is spotty  due to hills. So, hotels/motels on the MAX light rail are best. If you stay at one, it’s about a 15-30 minute trip for to the WFC.

Here is a list of some hotels/motels in Portland within a broad cost range, and broad scenery range. Thanks for signing up, I look forward to meeting you!
