Travel Portland's LGBT Welcome Packet + Portland Perks hotel package was such a hit during Pride month that it's been extended through the end of 2011. Travel Portland is the official tourism promoter for Oregon's metropolitan Portland region.
With Portland Perks, visitors get great rates at the Portland area’s 19 TAG Approved hotels; complimentary overnight parking (average savings of $25/night downtown); continental breakfast for two; and the discount-packed Portland Perks coupon book.
TAG Approved properties are ensured not to discriminate against their guests and employees on the basis of sexual orientation. On top of all that, the welcome kit includes a selection of gifts, maps and local publications tailored for LGBT visitors.
Visitors can get a head start on their vacation planning with the recently updated LGBT section of Travel Portland’s website, which features details on annual events, the local drag scene and more.
According to research by Community Marketing, Inc., Portland ranks as a top destination for gay and lesbian leisure and business travelers.
