Downtown Portland Hotels
Downtown Portland may belong to business folks Monday through Friday, now come see how it can belong to YOU on the weekend!
But first, remember when Saturday and Sunday used to be really special in the ‘good old days’ because it was ALWAYS two days seemingly almost all those who worked took ‘off?’ To recharge. To relax. To reenergize for the coming week.
It was a perfectly good plan. No one ever questioned it. And it worked for years! Decades even! Five work days ‘on.’ Two play days ‘off.’ Five days to work; two days to play, run errands, spend quality time with the family, etc. Weekends were the big ‘payoff’ for working so hard and staying focused during the week.
Oh, how times have changed! So dramatically so that now taking off for ‘the weekend’ seems more like a mini-vacation for many singles, couples or families. Not to mention the fact you’re still connected to work and other life stressors via every electronic and technological device invented!
So are we crazy to invite you to really get away some weekend? Whether planned or spontaneous? And consider doing so in a vibrant, urban but not overwhelmingly busy city. Portland! With all there is to see and do both downtown and around the area, you’ll find Hotel Fifty – where downtown meets the river – an ideal location.
Take the time to do everything. Do something. Do nothing. It doesn’t matter! It’s the ‘away’ in your weekend getaway that matters. Of course, we’d highly recommend disconnecting . . . from your phone (smart or not), iPad, computer, iPod . . . you know – the works. And re-discover yourself and your family or friends (if you invite them along!)
Just to start your creative juices flowing, there’s 24 Hour Fitness just a ten minute walk from the hotel’s front door; H5O bistro & bar dining on property and room service, of course! Fifty Fun Things to Do in and around the area might also pique your interest.
Oh sure, you could stay at home and mow the grass or plant and weed the garden or do your ‘chores’ around the house . . . but surely they can wait another week, can’t they? You can always go the grocery store and the dry cleaners another day or evening.
However you check your calendar these days, do it now . . . identify that available weekend, make your Hotel Fifty guest room reservations . . . and begin your weekend planning. Your friends and family will be so envious when you tweet or facebook about the great time you had . . . AFTER you get home, of course! Or perhaps you’ll inspire them to take a weekend getaway of their own.
Either way, for at least one upcoming Saturday and Sunday, take back your weekend. You can give back downtown Portland to the business folks when you’re good and ready!
