    What's the best time to visit The Westin Portland?

    The best time to visit The Westin Portland is during the summer or fall, when the Pacific Northwest days are long, leisurely and drenched in sun. The summer is particularly pleasant, a time when the streets of downtown Portland come alive as restaurants and cafés spill out into the sidewalks with outdoor tables and local artists showcase their works during a series of fairs and festivals.
     
    If you don’t mind a little rain, however, any time is a good time to book your stay at this Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel, given its ideal location in the heart of downtown. From the Portland luxury hotel it’s an easy walk to the cultural district, countless boutiques, restaurants and the world-renowned Powell’s Books, a massive bookstore that spans an entire city block. You’ll also be a short walk away from a number of local microbreweries and a streetcar ride from a few urban wineries.

    Where is The Painted Lady Restaurant located?

    The Painted Lady Restaurant is located in downtown Newberg, only 40 minutes south of Portland in the heart of Oregon pinot noir country. An ornate white picket fence garlands the restored Victorian home at 201 S. College Street; in spring and summer, a profusion of fuchsia pink roses dance above the trim.
     
    The namesake of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant alludes to the painted lady colorist movement that began in San Francisco in the late 1960's. The spirit was to restore turn-of-the-century Victorian homes with flair, painting them with vibrant colors to embellish and enhance the historical details. The Painted Lady pairs the charms of a small-town setting with world-class cuisine.

    What is the dress code at The Painted Lady Restaurant?

    The Painted Lady Restaurant is one of the most romantic dining destinations in the region, so prepare to be swept off your feet and dress accordingly. A night at the restaurant is not just dinner: It’s an enchanting epicurean affair. Located in the heart of Oregon pinot noir country, think wine country chic meets business attire. The cuisine at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, which is elegant and subtle, both inventive and refined, is reflected throughout the décor. Women can don an elegant cocktail dress or business attire with flair and jackets are suggested for gentlemen though Portland overall has a more casual sartorial vibe.
