w00t! Coming in late on this discussion, but my better half and I are looking at options to make the trip.
We're thinking of flying in Wednesday night and leaving the following Tuesday morning. If we're going to make that kind of trip, we'd like to have a little extra time for some sightseeing, and we have some friends up in the Seattle area that I've wanted to visit in person for over ten years now. We haven't been to Portland since January 2nd, 1981. Yeah, I remember the exact date. I almost finished one semester at Multnomah School of the Bible, before ending up in Emanuel Hospital for six weeks.
Amy, what kind of rate are we getting for rooms from the Radisson? If I book the flight, rental car, and room at the Radisson through Expedia, I'm coming in at about $767 per person for six nights. Just booking through the Radisson webpage, we were looking at about $87 per night for the cheapest room, or about $525 for the room alone, plus tax (or about $262 per person).
You definitely piqued my interest with future venues in Orlando. Faithwriters Conference AND scuba diving! Who could ask for anything more?
Yeah, I know. We could dive the Pacific Coast off of Oregon, too, but if the water off of San Diego is still cold enough to require a 7mm wetsuit or a drysuit in July and August, it's not going to be warm enough for us off of Oregon.
We got kind of spoiled to Fiji and Hawaii.
