Checking In: The Radisson Red in Downtown Portland, Oregon

The brand new Radisson RED Portland Downtown only opened in November, so I’ve been one of the first bloggers to get to check it out. To book a stay, currently using it is only 37,500 Radisson Rewards points a night, which is a really good deal! So the total for a 3-night stay like my trip would only be 112,500 points! If you’re low on points, Radisson Rewards also often offers a Points + Cash option. Because of my Gold status with Radisson Rewards, I also received a free upgrade upon check-in to a beautiful and spacious corner room for the duration of my stay.
