The last couple of days I was in Portland, Oregon. Portland has a vibrant downtown that was busy even in the evening with pedestrians. The weather was in the 50's. Do you know they can raise camellias in their gardens? I am jealous. I stayed at one of the Kimpton Hotels...Hotel Monaco. I have always liked the Kimpton chain since the hotels are smaller boutique venues, they allow pets and the decorating is fun. There is also a wine happy hour!
