March has brought us International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, both of which recognize remarkable ladies past and present and illuminate milestones toward equality for everyday women. With spring blooms getting us outside more, vaccinations beginning to push back against COVID-19 infections and spring break giving families some free time for staycations, what are you ladies doing to reward yourself with much-deserved self-care?
The Benson, Portland’s historic landmark hotel, is in the heart of it all. Our superb location puts you within walking distance to all that downtown has to offer. Spa treatments, shopping, dining, and boundless outdoor recreation are just steps away.
Our friends at TravelPortland have published some great suggestions for self-care in and around town. Readily available self-care starts with Portland’s fantastic array of spa treatments, from soothing massages to exfoliating facials, or a meditative stroll along one of Portland’s 300 parks and natural areas, the Portland Japanese Garden or the Lan Su Chinese Garden. Rev up into cardio mode for an endorphin boost by dropping into a barre or spin class, or enjoying a run along Portland’s scenic Eastbank Esplanade. For those who relax best through water immersion, Portland offers soaking pools, float tanks and more! Of course for some, self-care can take shape in the ritual of taking tea, or indulging in a unique dessert, whether it’s a heaping scoop of Salt & Straw Ice Cream, a gooey maple bar from Voodoo Doughnuts, or a layered, scratch-baked cake slice from Papa Haydn. Looking for other ideas? Our Benson guest services team is ready to help!
