We used www.hotwire.com and were able to book a two-night stay for about $200 bucks. With its iconic food cart gatherings, anti-establishment murals and even a doughnut shop that performs weddings, it's no wonder the mantra of this town is “Keep Portland Weird.” And right in the heart of it all you’ll find Hotel Rose, a funky, fun and “oh-so-Portland” boutique hotel located directly across from Tom McCall Waterfront Park on the beautiful Willamette River.
Must try eats and drinks:
Stumptown Coffee – the line will likely be out the door but it is worth every sip
Voodoo Donuts- A perfect accompaniment to your cup of joe and some of the wackiest donuts on the planet.
