          The hotel itself was nice. It's a huge resort hotel on Jantzen Island, which is right on the border of Oregon and Washington State.

          However, we had major issues checking in. I had booked our room via the Hotel Tonight app about two days prior to our visit. I've used Hotel Tonight successfully for our entire trip thus far. The girl working the desk couldn't find our reservation, at all, then one of the other employees tried to find our reservation, but he got distracted, and wandered off, then we asked a third employee what was going on, and he just claimed we had no reservation.

          We waited for about an hour while they tried to fix our reservation.

          Then I called the app's 24/7 support line, an spoke to an employee there,and she called the hotel for us, and spoke to a manager and suddenly there was room for us, although we got no apologies or anything for the fact it took the hotel about 1.5 hours to help us, and it was their mistake.

          Very unhelpful front desk staff. They DO NOT go the extra mile to help their guests, at all.

          Our room was nice, at least. It had two big beds, a gigantic bathroom with a shower, toilet, and fancy shampoo and body wash and conditioner. The room also had a fridge, and the WiFi at the hotel was decent enough.

          We didn't get to enjoy any of the amenities of the hotel because it took the hotel so long to fix our reservation, so I have no comment on those, except the pool was huge and looked really nice, but we didn't have a chance to use it.

          Jantzen Island is also a nice place. There's a Starbucks, various restaurants from fast food places to McDonald's to places like Panera, to sit down restaurants like BJs.

          homes at docks along one side of the river. These homes look like ordinary
          homes just on the water. No grass to cut! There were all sorts of styles and
          sizes. We were amazed.

          This week we’re excited as we will get to meet up with Blake
          and his family who are in California from the Philippines for their 30 days in
          the US. Can’t believe we’re that close to seeing them! ...

          While we're writing this, we've been up for nearly 24 hours straight...and therefore not thinking completely straight!

          We started our trip off with PDX Burgerville and feet Selfies on the beloved airport carpet (it's a Portland thing....our carpet is being replaced at the airport and we just can't seem to let it go).

          ... access, bloody brilliant! So these two hung over and weary, and clearly not lounge-appropriately attired backpackers stepped beaming into the cool and calm lounge to enjoy some tasty snacks, wifi that worked, oh yes, and maybe a glass of wine (just one this time though) well it was free, so it would be rude to refuse. That was just the tonic that we needed and after a few hours of food and relaxation we were ready for our flight to Hong Kong. Lucky we had the luxury of the lounge just ...

          ... We then had to cross two lanes of traffic to scramble up another dusty track and at this point we decided to call it a day. We have learnt in this pioneering country what it is to endure hardship (over-large portions and cheery enquiries about the royal family) and we had expected to suffer after our escape from the tour bus, but this was our holiday dammit! It was back to the hotel for a cup of tea and freshly-baked cookies provided gratis by our friendly American hosts.

Its main purpose is to carry people between Health & Science Oregon University (perched high on a hill) and the south waterfront area. It isn’t even cost prohibitive at $2 per person to ride up and free to come down. The view is ...
