Portland International Airport (PDX) is about an hour a way from Hood River.
We would recommend getting a car. There are not Ubers in Hood River and taxis are unreliable. You have more freedom then relying on the Columbia Gorge Express.
If you are looking for a more affordable option then renting a car, this is a local bus that will take you from Portland (Gateway Transit Center) to Hood River and back.

This is an adorable old school Hood River hotel that was recently redone. Right in the middle of Hood River, so great for people who want to walk around and explore the town!
This is located on the same street as the venue and is walkable. This is the most affordable option in Hood River. They also offer glamping.
This is next to the Columbia Gorge and Spa. It is the most luxurious option. Also on the road to our venue, The Griffin House.
This is located on the same street as our venue. This is a beautiful, classic, and most historic hotel in the Gorge.
