Weekend Getaway: Staying in Portland


Ever wanted to stay in Portland and not wanted to spend over $200 a night?  If so, check out Airbnb.  I’ve never tried it before this trip and was pleasantly surprised.  The two hotels we were debating between were going for ridiculous prices, so we decided to check out this Airbnb business and found an apartment for $95 a night!  Granted, as you check out they add a $40 cleaning fee and a $16 surcharge, but they also gave us a $25 coupon which made it worth it.

We found this gem in the Alberta neighborhood of Portland.  Alberta is the arts district and full of cute craftsman homes and hot spot restaurants according to Eater.  The apartment we chose was attached to a larger house, and was featured on Apartment Therapy so you know it’s adorable.  Our hostess had tons of sweet touches in the apartment like lucky horse shoes, vintage appliances, a bowl of violet candies and a notebook full of great restaurant recommendations.

We loved our stay here, it was easy and cute (two of my favorite adjectives).  I’d definitely stay here again.
