happily lost

The second collection I received for The Scrap Review was Lily Bee's Happily Lost. It's colorful and fun with bicycles, banners, and the cutest little letter stickers.

I love staying in hotels. Actually, let me rephrase that. I love staying in clean, unique, comfortable and chic hotels. Often I am wandering throughout random hotels in my dreams. And for some reason sometimes it turns into a school in my dreams, but that's another story.

Last month I had a companion ticket on Delta that needed to be used by the end of the month. We wanted a weekend getaway that was not too far away that both of us had never been to before. After looking up our options, we decided on Portland, OR. JC immediately found a NY Times Review where they recommended the Nines. After seeing that it was a Starwood hotel (we're suckers for miles and points), we decided it was just the place for us. Plus they had a fantastic promotion running and we ended up with a great deal.

The interiors were gorgeous and the room (thanks for the upgrade!) was spacious and luxurious. And another bonus: room service was from their excellent restaurant, Urban Farmer.

What are some of your favorite impressive budget-friendly hotels?
