In times like these, every little penny pinched is a gift, but when cash savings come packaged with convenience and luxury, it’s a deal that cannot be missed. Embassy Suites Portland – Washington Square, has announced that it is offering a little extra incentive to guests to get out and see the world while being kind to the earth – and their finances.
Guests at the Embassy Suites Portland – Washington Square are being offered 10%* off the Best Available Rate when they use the TriMet MAX Light Rail System to reach the hotel and show their ticket upon check-in. Reserving rooms with this option is possible by booking online or by calling 1-800-EMBASSY and asking for rate plan L-MAX. A MAX Light Rail map is posted on the hotel’s home page.
Many guests who travel to a new city think of a cab or a car rental as the only way to travel from the airport to their hotel, but in lush, green Portland, there are better – and more economical – options. By utilizing the TriMet MAX Light Rail Line, guests pay just two dollars to reach the hotel from the airport, resulting in substantial savings compares with various other methods of transport. Located just outside of the airport, the rail line offers easy transport to the hotel by dropping guests off at the Beaverton Transit Center. A complimentary shuttle service then takes guests directly to the hotel. The Hall Street Station is also opening in early 2009, which will add an even greater convenience by dropping guests just two blocks away from the hotel.
“Our hotel has recently undergone renovation, which means we’re able to offer top-of-the-line accommodations with the 10% discount that we offer to guests who use the Light Rail,” said director of sales Melissa DelBalzo. “During these tough economic times, we wanted to help our guests get the best deals possible while still feeling like they’re getting pampered on the road. The savings of staying at an Embassy Suites really add up when you consider the cost of a cooked-to-order breakfast, light snacks, and free drinks of your choice – all of which we provide as a standard amenity to our guests.”
As the fourth largest hotel in Oregon, the Embassy Suites Portland – Washington Square is located only minutes away from downtown Portland on a unique property directly beside Portland’s premiere tax-free shopping experience, Washington Square. A complimentary shuttle is offered to guests for the one-block distance between the hotel and Washington Square in case of rain or heavy shopping bags. With such a central location, attractions such as the Oregon Zoo, Portland Art Museum, Portland State University, and the Rose Garden – home of the Portland Trailblazers – are close by.
Business travelers to Portland will be pleased to see that they are within a few miles of Portland’s biggest corporations, such as IBM, Intel, Verizon, Mentor Graphics, and Tektronix.
