|Portland on the Willamette River|
Our family stayed at the Embassy Suites-Downtown in Portland Oregon this past year.
This is a really wonderful city–great places to eat, visit, shop, and grab a cup o’ jo. Our hotel was right in the middle of it. Built in 1912, it has all the inherent charm of that era plus a spa, swimming pool and exercise room. We stayed in a two room suite with two queen beds in one room and a pull out sofa bed in the small salon. Our room was located on a sunny corner of the hotel with views of downtown Portland.
What I especially liked about this hotel was the location–easy walking distance to China Town and the Pearl district, across the street from Stumptown Coffee shop and a block and a half from VooDoo donuts (you will know you are there when you see the long line coming out the door). Breakfast at the hotel is complimentary including made-to-order items. We were able to find a very budget-minded rate through the internet, a great value with a lot of charm.
