What to see in Portland (Oregon)?

I've got a work trip to Portland (Oregon--last year I had one to Portland, Maine) in May, and I've decided to go out a little early and see some of the city. Anyone on my flist know the city and have recommendations for what to see?

I'm flying in on Saturday, May 13, getting in around noon. I'll have Sunday and Monday to sight-see, as my meeting doesn't start until Tuesday. My first thoughts are to spend one day seeing the zoo, the rose gardens, and other things in the Washington Park area, and the other day more downtown--Powell's, Chinatown (good places for dim sum?), the waterfront, etc. I'll be staying at the Marriott Downtown Waterfront on Naito Parkway, which looks like it will make it easy to use the free zone for Portland's transit system to get around. I'm not planning to get a rental car.
