Portland Oregon: Exploring the Downtown Christmas Decorations


One sure fire way to get into the Christmas spirit is to check out the downtown decorations. I took the MAX light rail to downtown Portland one afternoon and did just that. I looked at store decorations and shopping mall decorations but what I think I enjoyed most was the diversity of decorations in the downtown hotels. Here are some samples. Merry Christmas!

Of course we had to check out The Benson Hotel's tree. The lobby is always elegant.
The Benson used huge ornaments.

More of the beautiful Benson Hotel ornaments.

Nordstrom had some interesting wooden and felt pine cones.
So then it was off down the street to find a traditional Doug fir.
This beautiful tree was in the lobby of the Hotel Lucia.

The Hotel Lucia used some wood ornaments, too.
 
Look closer. The tree is made of glass

Glass wine bottles to be exact!
After all that walking you may be interested in enjoying some down time in an elegant holiday setting. If you are lucky enough to get a reservation, enjoy a special Russian Tea at the Heathman.


There is much more to see and do during the holidays in Portland. Enjoy our article from Wander With Wonder on Christmas in Portland.

Merry Christmas!
