Hotel Monaco Portland is a unique luxury hotel in downtown Portland just steps away from shopping, restaurants and the beautiful Tom McCall Waterfront Park. The famous Pioneer Square is only a couple blocks away. Hop on to MAX Light Rail and get whisked to the Washington Park Zoo or the gorgeous Japanese Rose Gardens.

Hotel Monaco is full of vibrant colors everywhere.  Renowned designer Cheryl Rowley has transformed it into a haven with deep chocolate colored furnishings that feel both luxurious and cozy.  The lobby is not just a lobby.  It is a relaxing place to read or just sit in front of the fireplace.  You will feel like royalty sitting in here.

One of the greatest qualities about Hotel Monaco Portland, is that it is Green Seal Silver Certified, which means it meets a rigorous set of environmental standards that reduce impact on the environment and human health.  Recycling, water conservation and saving energy are just a few of these examples.

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
