  1. So I'm new in Portland, OR. I have a friend coming to visit over the weekend Thur-Sun next month. We're looking at a place in downtown portland called the Nines? The room is for deluxe one king bed.
    I was wondering what the best way was to book it for the best price. On the hotel web they offer like 3rd night is free
    https://www.starwoodhotels.com/luxury/search/ratelist.html?arrivalDateYear=2009&departureDate=2009-08-23&workflowId=&arrivalDateMonth=08&ratePlanList=AAA%2CAAAPRO&roomOccupancyTotal=01&numberOfAdults=01&propertyID=1757&arrivalDateDay=20&roomBedCode=K&iATANumber=&corporateAccountNumber=&promotionCode=Z3H&LaunchLocation=&numberOfRooms=01&departureDateMonth=08&departureDateDay=23&ratePlanName=&submitActionID=search&arrivalDate=2009-08-20&smokingPreference=&departureDateYear=2009&lengthOfStay=03&AAAsetNum=298940 so total would be$378 instead of $567. Do they add tax?

    I also searched for the same hotel on expedia.com
    https://www.starwoodhotels.com/luxury/search/ratelist.html?arrivalDateYear=2009&departureDate=2009-08-23&workflowId=&arrivalDateMonth=08&ratePlanList=AAA%2CAAAPRO&roomOccupancyTotal=01&numberOfAdults=01&propertyID=1757&arrivalDateDay=20&roomBedCode=K&iATANumber=&corporateAccountNumber=&promotionCode=Z3H&LaunchLocation=&numberOfRooms=01&departureDateMonth=08&departureDateDay=23&ratePlanName=&submitActionID=search&arrivalDate=2009-08-20&smokingPreference=&departureDateYear=2009&lengthOfStay=03&AAAsetNum=298940
    It came to total of $428 (with tax-is tax included for everything? I thought OR didn't have tax)
    Sorry so long, I just want to have this trip and hotel all ready for my friend
     
  2. Also found a hotel called Hotel Modera in Downtown Portland, rates a little better. $327 for 3 nights. How much tax is usually included? I wasn't sure if it's a bad room b/c it's prepaid option one?

  4. Has anyone stayed at Modera? I'm thinking of booking it for a trip to Portland in March, but I'm worried it's a bit out of the way since it's in the business district. We're also thinking of Hotel Fifty, because it's a bit more central and very reasonable.
