Sia and I both had the opportunity to try out a Kimpton hotel in Portland and Seattle this spring and we have really been impressed with not only how high quality these hotels are, but the number of unique & special amenities they offer to their guests. Their customer service was top-notch too – everyone we encountered was extremely friendly & helpful, so I am sure that the same would be the case at the Hotel Vintage Plaza.

My son just turned 1 years old and has the energy of a 4 year old. I could really use a nice getaway with just me and my husband. even for just a night.

  14. Its my birthday on the 4th and I have always wanted to go to the rose festival in portlant

I live outside the city and went to the emergency room with a horrible side ache. They transported me right to Portland Emanuel Hospital and 2 days later we had to deliver. My liver and kidneys were failing as a result of my preeclampsia and I had dangerously high blood pressure. He was born with respitory problems so he spent 18 days in the NICU. The NICU stay was very draining to the both of us as we were constantly worried and monitoring our baby’s breathing issues. We would LOVE to have a night to our selves after this super difficult and stressful time in our lives.

  53. We last saw the starlight parade while pregnant with our first child… Three children later it would be so nice to get away and see it again!!

  54. My husband and I would absolutely love a getaway to Portland to celebrate my birthday, but also a weekend to enjoy each other.

And I’m subscribed for the email newsletter!

The last 7 months have been very stressful relocating to a new town and living with my parents (with our 2 year old and 7 month old). My husband and I would love to have some time away to relax and spend time together. I don’t normally do giveaways, but this is to perfect!

  193. Why would I like to win? Well my hubby has been out of work for a bit. I’ve been holding down the fort and dang it I deserve it! I’ll find a babysitter to get rid of the kids for a night! My hubby and I have been dreaming about that hotel for awhile! Love Portland!

  197. I would LOVE to win this contest! I have two children, ages 7 & 5, and like many other parents, we are in the throes of swim lessons, tap dancing rehearsals & recitals, and more t-ball & Little League practices & games than I can imagine! Seems like the only time my husband and I have together are taken up by being *that* mom & dad who are hootin’ & hollerin’ from the sidelines at baseball games! :) Every year we talk about going to the Starlight parade but have never made it in almost 14 years of marriage. This would be a welcome break and a wonderful gift for us to take a night to catch our breath, refresh & then re-enter our little world of our kids’ activities! :)
