A quick trip to Portland for my kid's spring break and what a great choice we made in staying at the River Place Hotel. I cannot recommend high enough - the staff were terrific without being Eddie Haskell phony nice. Our room had amazing views of the river with always something to watch out front. Plus, you spill out the front door and get to pretend that you are like the other super nice, hippie types walking past with their oh so sexy athletic gear - not at all like the Shades of Grey tourism board would have you believe. While lots of restaurants in walking distance, who wants to leave the hotel when they plow you with free wine every night plus cookies for the tweenies'. There was also two farmers markets close by; one with fresh food the other with "Made in Portland" tchotchkes that were classic. My only thing was the TV remote didn't work but not enough to spoil my contact high being around so many nice people. The key to customer service? Sludge happens but then make it up with swag, wine and smiles. Call out props to Sokhun Keo for following up on one of my nits.
