Discover Portland!

VALUE: Priceless
Donor: Sage Hospitality, Oregon Zoo, FlexPerks, Pique Travel Design and the Como Friends Board of Trustees.

Escape to one of the hippest – and green, cities in the United States!  Touted as a progressive, always changing, city on the move, Portland has it all; amazing parks, cool breweries, vibrant music scene, eclectic shopping, and acclaimed dining.  Your 4-night stay at the luxury boutique hotel, The Nines, will be a wonderful home base for your adventure. The LEED Silver Certified hotel is located in the former headquarters and flagship store of Meier and Frank, once heralded as the largest retailer west of the Mississippi. The building was transformed using a modern approach while infusing elements of art, fashion and sustainability.

The Portland experience includes a priceless behind-the-scenes tour at the Oregon Zoo, trip to the Portland Japanese Garden (ranked #1 in the U.S.), gift card to VooDoo donuts, $100 gift card to Departure Restaurant, a visit to a vineyard – and more! Included are 60,000 FlexPerks points worth $900 in award travel.
