Embassy Suites (Portland; tel. 800/EMBASSY [362-2779] or 503/279-9000): Unlike most other Embassy Suites, this is a historic hotel, but it still has those spacious suites that are great for families. Plus, there's a pool and video arcade down in the basement.
Hallmark Resort (Cannon Beach; tel. 888/448-4449 or 503/436-1566): Set on a bluff with a great view of Cannon Beach's famous Haystack Rock, this is just about the most family-oriented hotel in town. There are two indoor pools.
Lake of the Woods Resort (Klamath Falls; tel. 866/201-4194 or 541/949-8300): This old-fashioned lakefront lodge in the southern Oregon Cascades is a bit like a summer camp for the whole family. There's great swimming and you can rent boats and mountain bikes.
Kah-Nee-Ta High Desert Resort & Casino (Warm Springs; tel. 800/554-4786 or 541/553-1112): This remote resort is centered around a huge warm-springs-fed swimming pool that is a major magnet for vacationing families. You can also go kayaking and horseback riding.
Black Butte Ranch (Sisters; tel. 866/901-2961 or 541/595-1252): With stunning views of the Three Sisters peaks, this central Oregon resort has a solid feel of being in the mountains. Five pools, a lake, horseback riding stables, and bike paths provide plenty of options for keeping the kids entertained.
Seventh Mountain Resort (tel. 877/765-1501 or 541/382-8711): Although this resort is close to the Mount Bachelor ski area and has an ice-skating rink in the winter, it is most popular with families in the summer, when kids flock to the pools and children's programs give parents some free time.
Sunriver Lodge & Resort (Sunriver; tel. 800/801-8765): This resort south of Bend in Oregon's high desert is popular with families for its many miles of bike trails that meander through pine forests. There are also riding stables and canoes and kayaks for rent on the gentle waters of the Deschutes River.
