Behind the Wall

Reliving our trip to Portland while curating my photo collection. We stayed in the Pearl District of Portland which was once quite industrial. Our hotel room, at the Marriott Residence Inn Pearl District,  had its own kitchen. This is a  great neighborhood for gourmet foods and wines. It was also near some great happy hour places with cheap drinks and food. I was nice to live without a car and have all the amenities nearby. The hotel was just five minute walk from the train station, so no need for even a cab. Public transportation rocks in Portland! When we ventured downtown it was short wait for for inexpensive streetcar ride. Just a few blocks away from the hotel was this great wall from an original building that had been saved and was beautiful with the patina of age.
Importantly for us food obsessed the building behind the wall houses a number of food businesses. Our favorite is Hot Lips Pizza. We arrived at lunch and salivated over the selection goodies. You must try the Waldorf pizza with walnuts, apple and blue cheese a killer combo. They also deliver to the hotel. Good times!
