If you want a mix of city life with suburban vistas, then AC Hotel Portland Downtown is the property for you. Designed for the sophisticated traveler, the hotel provides luxury “floating” beds with fine linen and plush pillows.

Jumping a considerable way across the North Pacific Ocean, but still on the west coast of the US, is the paradise island state of Hawaii, and Prince Resorts want to show you around.
