Travel in Portland is Seasonal …
Over the past 15 years we have noticed that there is a big difference between guests who visit during the Winter vs. those who visit in the Summer.
- In the Winter and Spring (from November thru April) Portland is more rainy, cooler and quieter. Guests come to do something specific or to visit someone special. It may be to attend a convention or visit a parent or grandchild, but they are here for a reason … and they are looking for the best possible deal.
- In the Summer and Fall (from May thru October) Portland is sunny, warmer and full of outdoor activity. Our guests are more often tourists or on vacation. They are here to explore, see the sites, attend a music festival, run in a marathon, celebrate a wedding … and sample restaurants! They are looking to enjoy and pamper themselves.
As a result we have created “seasonal service”.
- During our Winter/Spring Season, we offer “Guest House Service”. We keep our rates as low as possible, include a complimentary continental breakfast and offer extended stay discounts.
- During our Summer’Fall Season, we offer “Bed & Breakfast Service”. our Winter Continental Breakfast is replaced by a delicious full plated-breakfast … and guests have the option to book without breakfast. We also include “Grandma’s Treat Table” with cookies, pretzels and candies. Finally, we offer an option for full daily housekeeping (like at a hotel).
