Through the end of March 2013, travelers now have eight new – and free – reasons to fall in love with the Rose City thanks to the new Portland Passport.

In addition to budget-friendly winter hotel rates and Portland’s tax-free shopping, guests who book accommodations through the Travel Portland website for stays through March 30 receive a Portland Passport for free goods at some of the city’s most beloved businesses.

Free Passport perks include a Portland cream confection at Voodoo Doughnut; one-hour tour, tasting and a souvenir tulip glass at Widmer Brothers Brewing; meat or chocolate salami at Olympic Provisions; and single scoop waffle cone at Salt and Straw.

Additional freebies available through the Passport are a Youcanhascheeseburger at Brunch Box Food Cart; basket of buttermilk biscuits at Country Cat; ten-piece meatball plate at IKEA; and cup of seafood chowder at Salty’s on the Columbia.

“We asked Portlanders about their favorite winter and spring activities and used their responses to create the Portland Passport, which allows visitors to share in these activities, all at no additional cost,” said Jeff Miller, president of Travel Portland. The Passport has a combined value of more than $45.

After booking their hotel stay through the Travel Portland website, guests receive a confirmation email with their official Portland Passport, which they can print and redeem for the various experiences. All Passport activities are free with no additional purchase required.

In addition, if visitors select a Portland Perks hotel as noted in the search results, they will also get free parking, continental breakfast and dining, shopping and attractions coupons.
