Best time to visit Portland
To get the best hotel deals and fewer tourists, visit Portland during May (late-spring) and during October (mid-autumn). While the nights are cold around these times (below 10°C), you can indulge in rising temperatures in May, while the heat of the summer (June – August) is still cooling off in October. In May, you’ll have a good chance of finding low hotel rates (with the summer crowds still to arrive). In October, the tourists will have already left, meaning better availability and the best hotel deals.
