The love for downtown Portland is real! Ten lucky winners got to spend a great Valentine's Day downtown.


This month, in recognition of Valentine’s Day, our Downtown Portland and Downtown Clean & Safe teams partnered with local businesses to create a free Valentine’s Day package for TEN lucky participants. Packages included an overnight stay with a choice of the Dossier or Hotel deLuxe (Provenance Hotels), champagne for the room, a box of artisan chocolates from Azar Indulgences, a special gift from Portland Gear, and dinner for two at SouthPark Seafood ($100 value).
