From Chicago here and my boyfriend and I have heard such great things about Portland that we are considering relocating to Portland!! I am very excited. We were going to relocate to SF but it is SUPER expensive to live. First things first, we need to visit this wonderful city, we are thinking of visiting for a week sometime in January, can anyone suggest inexpensive hotels to stay at in the downtown area or somewhere near airport? (maybe less than $100 a night) is everything within walking distance in downtown area? I have so many questions that I don't even know where to begin, I guess we'll just have to visit PORTLAND to find out.
