Before the holiday we took a trip to Portland, Oregon for Jackson’s baptism and to visit our family. We usually stay with family members but because there were so many friends and family coming for the occasion, we stayed at a hotel downtown.
Being my hometown, I had never actually stayed in hotel there. We chose The Vintage Hotel for its location. Centrally located, you can walk just about anywhere! I had stayed at Kimpton Hotels before, and the hotel and our room did not disappoint. We were on the top floor and the minute I walked in I was blown away by the view we had of the city. The windows wrapped up into the ceiling and we could see the city scape from every angle. In addition to our sleeping area, there was a calm and comfortable sitting area that we would hang out in while Jackson took his naps. The adjacent restaurant – Pazzo Restaurante – was delicious. Breakfast was perfect and the evening meals were savory Italian.
If you are planning a visit to Portland, consider a stay at The Vintage Hotel – you’ll love it. Here are a few of my other places to be sure not to miss:
Alder & Co. has long been a favorite home store for me. Stunning candlesticks, dinnerware, jewelry, and clothing await you here. I always find a multitude of things to buy. This time I bought bells, a cookbook, and handmade dishes.
This was a first visit to:
Paadee, a delicious Thai restaurant in Laurelhurst. Everything was so fresh and mouthwatering!
Oven & Shaker had one of the best kale salads I’ve ever had. They also have croquets and pizza that won’t disappoint.
Blue Star Donut on 23rd Street is worth the wait in the long line. They bring donuts to a new level.
I hope you have a chance to visit and enjoy Portland soon. It is a city full of wonder.
