I stayed at the Dream Hotel http://www.dreamny.com while I was in the city… a 12×13 room with blue neon goes for $305/night during the week. Eeeek! I wasn’t really impressed by that hotel, but I think my boss liked it.
Now, Portland, for the bargain price of about $140, I’ve got a bigger room, done in an older hotel/bed and breakfast type thing. Cleaner, better view… but it was an easy assumption anyway.
I’ve only seen Portland at night tonight, and I’ll be sequestered in meeting rooms all day tomorrow before the leap back to Newark for the night. I’ll try to snap off a few frodos while I’m here though. None will be of me, or anyone you’ll know, so I’m not sure if it’s that interesting really.
