Staying In Salem, Oregon
Guidance on planning your stay in Salem for a training experience.
Transportation From Airport
You may have your own car or you may rent a car, of course.
You may take a shuttle service from the Portland International Airport (PDX) to Salem. It takes about 75 minutes to/from the airport when traffic is medium or light. Allow another 30 minutes during rush hour.
The HUT Shuttle Service delivers to the Salem Airport terminal on the south side of town.
The Oregon Express Shuttle Service delivers to the Red Lion Hotel by Interstate 5 and Market Street.
There are hotel options close to both of these locations.
Salem is not a big city, so anywhere you stay, you are within 20 minutes of where we may be practicing.
There is a big clump of business-style and tourism hotels, in a variety of prices, in the Interstate 5 and Market Street junction.
And there are a few more business-style hotels on the south side of town, near Interstate 5 and Mission Street. These are around Costco and along Hawthorne Avenue.
There is a Phoenix Inn farther south around the intersection of S Commercial Street and Sunnyside.
You may find any of these on Booking.com.
And there The Grand Hotel in downtown Salem. I believe this is the nicest hotel the city offers.
