From the moment we turned off the I-5 into Portland I was in love... The City, Hotel Monaco, the outstanding restaurants and incredibly tasty cocktails -- nothing disappointed.
We pulled up to the hotel around 8:15pm and drove downstairs to the valet. We were greeted by a couple valets that were not only quick and efficient but genuinely kind which we found present all throughout Portland.
After a quick check in we rushed up to get ready for our first night out. Awaiting on the table -- in our well designed room -- was a bottle of chilled bubbly with a couple orange juices incase we decided to save it for morning mimosas. LOVELY touch.
Before we could even start getting ready we started to take photos of our comfortable, clean and well thought out room... Bird wallpaper, grand headboards and unique pieces of furniture. As a restaurant and hotel designer I was impressed.
Throughout our stay we were given great reccomendations by conceirge and valet on the "hot spots" of Portland even offered beach cruisers to ride around town which we took advantage of on the sunny Sunday!
Made it to a handful of restaurants and explored as much as we could... Cant wait to get back!!!More
