With a pandemic disrupting all of our personal and professional routines, tensions at home might be running a little higher than usual. We may find ourselves sharing space with a partner day-in, day-out, working from home opposite each other, even homeschooling young children together. All of this can dampen those romantic flames. Nurturing your relationship to cultivate a meaningful connection, especially in the midst of a world crisis, is critical. As more counties move into their opening phases as part of the region’s recovery plan, couples are looking for creative and affordable ways to spend quality time with each other outside of their living rooms. The Benson Hotel has a solution, too, that just might help spark things up.
With premier Portland area hotels offering unprecedented discounts in the wake of COVID-19, date night packages are the perfect excuse to pull that little black dress from the back of the closet, or don a dress shirt, and enjoy a romantic dinner in our ultimate private setting. If a casual, comfy, room-based meal is more your style, pack in your own goodies for a bedside picnic and settle in for a relaxing movie night to view those long-awaited films on your watch list. Request a room or suite with a big sunken tub to recreate a relaxing spa experience with scented candles, face packs, a little massage oil, and some music. Staycations like these are the perfect way to reconnect; they afford privacy and luxury in a welcome change of venue. Leave the worry of interruption at home, and leave the tidying to us!
Date night packages are available at The Benson, Portland’s historic landmark hotel. With deluxe overnight accommodations, two glasses of wine (or beer) upon arrival, and your choice of a bottle of wine or a shareable charcuterie pack to savor, it doesn’t get any easier or more affordable. Planning out dinner may be the “toughest” part! Learn more about packages and special offers at The Benson here or call reservations at 503.228.2000.
