"Beautiful City Views"
Left on 04/14/2016 for a stay in April 2016
The apartment was very clean and the views from the bedroom and living room where amazing. The beds were very comfortable, but I wish they had another small couch or love seat as opposed to the 2 chairs in the living room which were not comfortable to watch tv or relax on. Overall I really loved the apartment and would stay there again. The location was perfect, right near all public transportation. Portland is a very walkable city so we didnt bother with it much except to get to the airport which was a breeze. When I first made the reservation we were told that they could not accommodate us for a late check out and were unable to store our luggage. However, when I asked at the security desk upon our departure they were more than happy to store our luggage for the day.

Wonderful place to stay in downtown Portland! Close to bus and max. Located by the park, beautiful view, clean and comfy condo. Easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants, Safeway a block away. I will definitely rent this place again!! Roomy and luxurious and for less than a hotel. Loved it!!!

The apartment was located in a newer developed area of Portland. There was a lot that we were able to walk to and the neighborhood was nice. I will definitely stay here again!
"Professional level condo"
Left on 06/18/2015 for a stay in May 2015
everything in top notch order just as promised on the website. Only issue was it's too warm at night in bedrooms. No a/c in bedrooms. Wonderful locations close and great recommendations in condo booklet.
Cool app for smartphone to assist with checking in and other questions. Roof top was fun too. Well done!

Portland is predominantly mild year-round due to the fact that it is situated between two mountain ranges, the Cascade in the east and the lower Coast in the west, making anytime a good time to visit the city. However, it must be noted that springtime in Portland brings the most beautiful flowers to bloom, and during that season, the City of Roses becomes a breathtaking scene to behold.
