In celebration of our 30th anniversary I planned a surprise weekend away for my BB Guy and myself. You can read Part 1 here.
As I said it was a great weekend and here is some more about our first day. We stayed at the River Place Hotel in Portland, Oregon. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Awesome. This was the view from our room. I had booked the Romance Package…at least I thought I had… but I managed to mess it up online. I was informed when I checked in that I hadn’t actually done so but they set it up for me anyway as they read my note along with my booking regarding this being our 30th anniversary. We had valet parking along with this lovely Cava (champagne)watiting for us in the room. Being such a shorty it was a challenge to get into the bed but it was so comfortable. I slept great and those of you who know me know that I don’t sleep very well at the best of times. Enquiring bloggers want to know so of course I will include a picture of the bathroom! They had great water pressure and that is something we really care about. You should smell the soap they provide. Of course I took it with me. My suitcase now smells wonderful. We found the cutest litte socks hanging in the closet for those who may get chilly feet. I have never seen that before. I love how they matched the robes that were also in the closet. We had driven a long way and were very glad to take advantage of the wine happy hour in the hotel. They hold this outdoors (weather permitting of course) and we had a great view of the water. They served us local wines and some delicious heirloom tomatoes sprinkled with basil, balsamic vinegar and course sea salt. Now that is how a tomato should taste! There were chairs to spread around as more people came in plus more fixed seating facing the water. They also set up for special events here such as weddings. On the Saturday evening they had it filled with elegant tables for someone’s special celebration. It must have been a spectacular evening.
These 2 posts cover our first day and evening at the River Place. Again you can read my first post right here.
