Our flights from SD to Portland via Salt Lake City went without incident. We have to pay now for every check in bag!!! Yikes!! Landed in Portland around 11 pm to clear skies (after much rain all day, apparently) & to DH waiting in a rental car. After a 20 min drive, we arrived at the Residence Inn by Marriott in downtown Portland. This is a rather conveniently located hotel in downtown with free continental breakfast and clean rooms.
