Exterior View of the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, California

Discover The San Francisco Bay Area

Visit the City by the Bay and explore its historical attractions. Spanish missionaries settled Yerba Buena (later renamed San Francisco) on June 29, 1776, five days before the Declaration of Independence was signed. Visit the spot where it all began: Mission Dolores, the city's oldest intact building, and one of only two cemeteries remaining in the city. Explore one of the oldest structures in the area: from its vantage point overlooking the spectacular Golden Gate, Fort Point defended the San Francisco Bay following California's Gold Rush through World War.

Explore Oregon

Known for its verdant forests and pristine waterways, Oregon has many stunning outdoor destinations that exemplify the inherent beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Dozens of majestic nature preservations populate the state, including the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Mount Hood National Forest, and the Ecola State Park. It is even home to Crater Lake National Park, the whereabouts of the most cavernous lake in the United States.

Oregon also features a venerable heritage that is deeply rooted in the story of the American West. The Jacksonville Historic District constitutes the center of a 19th century mining town that epitomized the nation’s pioneering spirit. The enduring legacy of the many immigrants who helped settle the region presents itself within the exhibits of the Kam Chung & Co. Museum, an erstwhile Chinese business in operation at the end of the 1800s. And the rich culture of the Nez Perce tribe resonates throughout Lake Wallowa, with the Old Chief Joseph Gravesite acting as a lasting tribute to the Native Americans that once lived in the area.

Stay at one of our historic hotels in the Beaver State for a truly authentic experience: Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland Downtown (1912), Crater Lake Lodge (1915), Ashland Springs Hotel (1925), The Heathman Hotel (1927, pictured), and the Timberline Lodge (1937).

Experience Culinary Traditions

Many iconic and legendary hotels that have made important contributions to the culinary heritage and traditions of the United States. From original recipes created at a hotel that have now become widely loved and enjoyed everywhere, to specialty drinks and cocktails that are deeply a part of the hotel’s history, there are many notable dishes that have origins at a historic hotel.

For example, the famous Boston Cream pie, originally known as “Parker House Chocolate Cream Pie” was invented more than 130 years ago at the Omni Parker House, Boston. In 1996, Boston Cream Pie was named the official state dessert of Massachusetts. The chefs at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan created a pecan coated ice cream ball in 1947 and now serve more than 60,000 pecan balls each year. The “Shirley Temple” was first served at the Mai Tai bar of the The Royal Hawaiian, A Luxury Collection Resort on Waikiki Beach. The famed drink the Blue Hawaii was created four years before the release of the Elvis Presley movie, Blue Hawaii, and was first served at the Hilton Hawaiian Village® Waikiki Beach Resort in 1957.
