From the art adorning the public spaces, stylish and soft linens, city center locale, to the incredible staff, this hotel is truly done to the nines! Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful. It's a beautiful hotel with all kinds of luxurious touches! It's whimsical and stylish without being stuffy. The location is very convenient too. It's situated kitty corner to Pioneer Square which is a central hub for the Max going in every direction! I loved this hotel! Will definitely stay here again! Also, it's a member of Starwood Resorts, so you get points for your stay as well. Another bonus is that both restaurants (Urban Farmer and Departure) are delicious and hip!

... down and get us to Portland pronto! Ha ha! We have one night there, to hopefully get a full nights sleep, then we pick up our wagon for a week, our camping gear and then head off into the nowhere lands in search of outdoor adventures and exploration, some wildlife and some spectacular scenery too.

I have been in more or less 15 countries, and no one comes close to making a sandwich like we do. We combine breads, sauces, vegetables, ...
... naiively had no idea that Portland was the “rose city” prior to arriving there, and was delighted to see roses literally everywhere. Some yards had little planted, but even those had a few rose bushes it seemed. The rose gardens were just awesome. We were there at a great time as they were all in bloom. It was not difficult to spend over an hour meandering through rows upon rows of all types and colors of roses. We ventured up to ...
... It has been labour day weekend here so the shopping malls and traffic have been crazy. For some reason it was chosen that EVERY road in Oregon would have roadworks done that weekend......crazy thinking. The traffic doesn't move. We did get to have a walk around town on Sunday afternoon. They have a market by the river each weekend which is like our St Kilda market, but on a much bigger scale. We managed to find our way through ...
No driving today.....spent the day exploring the city.
After the beautiful weather of yesterday we woke up to cold and rain. Despite this we wandered down town from the hostel for our 10 am bike tour of the city.
Portland or PDX as it is known to the locals is apparently renowned for its bridges (who knew?) and that was the focus of the tour. For a small city there are 11 ...
