Roomy bathrooms and steps away from the heart of downtown Portland is a huge win. It is also located just across from Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Morning runs along the water and over the bridge was quite enjoyable.

One thing about the showers however they do not have a physical door that shuts. So it is easy to flood the floors if you are having too much fun in the hot showers.

Hotel Pineapple Rose offers the complimentary guest services and amenities like bicycle checkout program, hotel-wide WiFi internet access, free in room water bottles and coffee, pineapple cupcake at the guest service welcome desk.

Daily parking rates average $20 USD. However, I liked how we were able walk to Nike Town, Nordstrom and enjoy a nice meal at Departure by Top Chef Greggory Gourdet. The leisurely stroll back to the hotel room was safe.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel in downtown Portland, Hotel Pineapple Rose is a great option for around $200 USD per night. Plus it is near bridges, so you can easily access between North-West and North-East of Portland.

Winery dinners are the perfect way to experience wine pairing, the wine producers over a multi-course dinner. I’m so excited to be invited for an evening to learn and discuss the food pairings.

Starting the evening off is a pale pink color sparkling that is subtle and has persistent bubbles. I liked the elegant notes of ripe apples and cherries. An easy start to any evening.

Veal Osso Buco: fresh pea risotto, apple mustard

Salame Spianata: Burrata, roasted campari tomato, domenica fiore, fried basil, panela
Feudo Maccari ‘Saia’ IGT Sicilia 2013

Creamy and smokey aromatic with wild cherry, spices and black olives. This lush wine finishes long and has a nice compliment to the fresh burrata and tomatoes. It would also pair wonderfully matched with full flavored meats/game.

Wild Boar Sausage: yukon gold potato gnocchi, piave truffle fonduta, shaved truffle

Watermark Beach Resort Osoyoos British Columbia is beautiful hotel right on Osoyoos Lake. The hotel is beach front and lake facing. The a beautiful sunny day, the view is quite spectacular. Too bad we came here while it was cloudy. I hope you have better luck than us. After reading the good reviews and found some pretty good deals on Bookings.com for Watermark Beach Resort Hotel.

 

Watermark Beach Resort Osoyoos British Columbia Okanagan Valley Instanomss Nomss

We came to Osoyoos for a Bachelorette weekend. We liked that Watermark Beach Resort is pretty central to wineries we had on our list. It is only about 15 mins to Tinhorn Creek Winery Okanagan (Miradoro restaurant is voted best of BC and the best of the Okanagan Valley) and Burrowing Owl Estate Winery. Watermark Beach Resort is also about 45 mins drive to See Ya Later Ranch Winery.

The rooms are spacious and clean. Beds are firm (not soft that breaks your backs). I love the patio space overlooking the pool and lake. It makes having a beer and wine brought back from the wineries enjoyable!

I’m looking forward to coming back here with Dave. It will definitely be a different experience as a couple than with the girls! If you ask what’s the number one hotel in Osoyoos? I would probably say Watermark Beach Resort Hotel.
