Recently, I was invited to attend TNT Portland - a tech and travel blog event sponsored by Techlicious
and Traveling Mom
. The event was held at The Westin Portland
. During the event, I was able to tour the facilities provided at the Westin, learn more about the services available for families traveling to Portland, and taste some of the new menu offered at the Daily Grill.
This hotel starts your stay off with quality and their top-rated valet service. Not only do these valets take great care of your car, but they can also answer nearly any question you ask about what to do, where to eat, and what to see while staying in Portland.

As you then enter the Westin, you must take time to look around at the amazing artwork - including a Picasso near the lobby elevator - surrounding you. From the furniture to the silver bar service on display to the fire pit in The Daily Grill, you will be made to feel as though you are a part of luxury. If attending an event in one of the meeting rooms, you'll also want to check out the unique chandeliers. The artwork and attention to detail throughout the hotel - in the lobby, library, elevator areas, and hotel rooms - are one of the reasons that make this hotel stand out as a boutique hotel.
If you're worried about you and your family having enough room for comfort, you can take advantage of the 25% discount on a second room and get adjoining rooms so that Mom and Dad can stay in one room with kids in the adjoining room. Or, you can book one of the Studio Suites which has room for a sofa sleeper as well as a crib or rollaway.
If you don't want to travel with your workout gear, you can take part in the workout gear lending program. Westin has partnered with New Balance to provide athletic shoes and clothing so that you can stay fit during your stay. Sound odd? Don't worry. The socks are always new!

After you've finished your Friday workout, you'll want to stop by Libations in the Library, a weekly cocktail event featuring Oregon winemakers, brewers and distillers. But, if you need more sustenance, then you - and your entire family - can enjoy the delicious menu of the Daily Grill. They also offer some tasty happy hour specials and have a revolving wine collection featuring many local wineries in the Willamette and Columbia Valleys.
No matter your reason for coming to Portland, the Westin is a must-check-out boutique hotel. With a location close to activities and nightlife, it's a winner in my book - whether or not I bring my kids. Thank you, TNT Portland, for showing off this great, family-friendly hotel in downtown Portland.
