My girlfriend and I live in Portland, Oregon. We'd like to take a week-long vacation over Christmas, and are looking for somewhere to visit in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, BC, or western Montana.

We're willing to spend up to $150/night, though we'd prefer to pay $120 or less. Any suggestions? [more inside]
