Catch a limo from the airport to the luxurious downtown River's Edge Hotel & Spa, where taking a few minutes to settle in before heading out can easily turn into hours of relaxing. With its riverside views, extravagant spa and breakfast-in-bed room service options, it's the ultimate place the relax during your Portland stay.
When you're able to tear yourself away from your beautiful king bed, start the day by taking a limo up to Washington Park and the International Rose Test Garden for beautiful views of the city and mountains beyond, framed by the roses that make Portland famous. It's a photographers dream in the right light.
When you've had your fill of roses, head back down to the waterfront for a champagne brunch cruise on the Portland Spirit, Portland's most famous river cruise boat. Take in the beautiful views of the river, downtown and Portland's many bridges while dining on some of the finest locally-sourced brunch options.
Then it's time to walk back down the waterfront towards your hotel for some spa treatment (be sure to book well in advance of your arrival to get your pick of times). Step into the soft robe provided and enjoy a variety of services, all using top-of-the-line natural, eco-friendly and organic products.
Once you're feeling rejuvenated from the spa, get ready to head out for the night. Stop in for a delicious dinner of the Melting Pot's unique fondue dishes and a bottle of good wine.
Then head to one of the Portland'5 Center for the Arts venues - the Newmark, Schnitzer and Keller are close by - to catch the latest Portland Gay Men's Chorus concert or touring Broadway show.
If you're up for more adventure, grab a cab across the river to Rimsky-Korsakoffee House for a drink and a luscious dessert.
Fall into bed at the end of the day after planning your two-day getaway to the romantic Breitenbush Hot Springs Retreat Center.
