Hotel at a Glance: Silverton Inn & Suites
The pointed red roofs of the Silverton Inn & Suites are distinctive sights—they're part of what has made the boutique hotel a landmark in downtown Silverton, Oregon. The inn's interior is just as memorable, with a massive fireplace in the two-story lobby and decor that nods to the history of the building and the town. You'll be able to walk out the front doors and stroll to downtown shops, art galleries, and restaurants, and you'll be within driving distance of gardens, a state park, and the wineries of the Willamette Valley.
- Elegant rooms and suites are uniquely decorated and newly updated. They feature sleigh-style beds, private bathrooms, refrigerators, and microwaves.
- Start the day right with a complimentary continental breakfast with coffee, rolls, and pastries.
- In bloom: Check out the breathtaking landscaping at The Oregon Garden, located about a mile from the inn.
Silverton, Oregon: Gateway to Gardens and Waterfalls
"Oregon's Garden City" is a fitting title for Silverton, a small community about 14 miles northeast of Salem. It's home to The Oregon Garden, an 80-acre site with more than 20 specialty gardens dedicated to showing off the beauty and botanical bounty of the Pacific Northwest. Visitors come to stroll the landscaped paths, see the Frank LLoyd Wright–designed Gordon House, and attend events held throughout the year.
Silverton is also considered the gateway to Silver Falls State Park, a system of trails, historical buildings, and waterfalls set in the foothills of the Cascade Range mountains. Hike the Trail of Ten Falls to see mossy glens and a 100-foot waterfall.
Back in town, you'll find the Palace Theatre. Built in 1936, it's the best place to watch newly released films in an old-fashioned setting. You'll also find a host of local boutiques and restaurants.
