The wife and I are taking a weeks vacation next summer, over the 4th of July, and we've always wanted to see Portland. I'm just starting to look into hotels and I wanted to see what recommendations any of you west coast folks may have. We've been east coast all our lives and other than a California trip back in the 90s we've never spent any time out there. So I would love to hear what recommendations you may have re: hotels, places of interest, etc. I won't be bringing a bike, my wife doesn't ride and considering how much she puts up with my cycling I owe it to her to leave it at home for a week.
BTW, I love the show Portlandia, and some that I know have said it's quintessential Portland. I dunno, seems like a comedy and that's all, but I will be looking forward to seeing the guy with the chin beard when we get there
