Cowboys invented the handlebar mustache so they'd always have somewhere to hang their hat. Save yourself the grooming time and hang your Stetson at the stately Hilton Garden Inn in Lake Oswego. For $89, today's Groupon gets you a one-night stay (up to a $191 value after tax) at this cozy home away from home plus four tickets (a $37 value) to the Oregon Zoo (up to a $228 total value). Rates vary from day to day, but you can redeem your Groupon for a one-night stay any Thursday through Sunday. Choose between a double queen room that accommodates up to four guests or a single king room for up to two guests.
A night away from the urban ocean of construction and wailing paperboys can be a refreshing reprieve for even the most hardened city folk. An overnight at Hilton Garden Inn in Lake Oswego promises to immerse visitors in the cozy lap of luxury for one sweet evening away, or serve as a pit stop on an x-treme road trip to Wichita. Room amenities include granite countertops and self-adjusting beds, which are ideal for viewing any of the premium cable channels while noshing on a summoned supper from room service (separate price). Adventure beyond the boundaries of your room to experience complimentary delights such as an indoor swimming pool, whirlpool, high fives from bellhops, and a fitness center.
Your Groupon also gets you two adult tickets (a $10.50 value per ticket) and two youth tickets ($7.50 each for ages 3–11) to the Oregon Zoo, which can be redeemed on a different day than the hotel stay if you so choose. The zoo houses around 2,200 worldly specimens on which observers can practice the teachings of Dr. Doolittle. Take the tots to marvel at the grand Asian elephants, the predators of the Serengeti, or the bald eagles that populate Eagle Canyon. The zoo is also home to gardens, as well as an animal sculpture garden where baby-hippo-fearing folks can quell anxiety by posing next to the inanimate underwater aviator.
