I chose this apartment in one of Portland's newest luxury buildings because it is literally in the best location in the city: 100% walk-ability rating! Comes with Cable TV, high speed wireless internet, 60' HDTV, DVD / Blu-ray player, PS3, washer/dryer (free), dishwasher, and all new appliances. Central AC/heating. A desk with an Aeron chair. The apartment is 720 square feet and has a new queen bed. It is an 'open' apartment - no walls or doors separating the rooms (except the bathroom). Located in one of Portland's new (opened 2009) luxury buildings with a gym, private in-house movie theater (approx. 200 inch screen and 19 comfy recliners), amazing rooftop lounge with a spectacular view of the city, rooftop Bar-B-Q, free wifi in all public places in the building (lounge, gym, roof, and lobby)... and it's one of the greenest buildings in the world (Platinum LEED rating.)
Your rental comes with 24 hour concierge service. If you have any problems, questions, or just want to know where the best burger in town is, there is always someone available to help you.
Copies of The New York Times and The Oregonian are available for reading in the lounge and lobby. Many fantastic restaurants are a five minute walk away. Movie theaters, grocery stores (Whole Foods) all within a few blocks. A large group of Portland's renowned high-end food carts are four blocks away. Great public transportation takes you throughout the city. If you have a car, there are several options:
* In-building parking costs around $15/day
* There are two surface lots within a block that are around $10 per day (less for partial days, and on non-busy days)
* There is quite a bit of street parking, which is free overnight, and metered during the day.
The apartment is best suited for two people, though there is an air mattress if there are more of you.
Just a ten minute walk to Portland Timbers (our Major League Soccer team) games. Portland Trailblazers games are twenty minutes travel time via the MAX (free above ground rail).
If you want to search for more info about the building: it's called "Indigo @ 12 west". (Airbnb won't allow me to link directly to the building's web site.)
PLEASE NOTE: the building has a strict no smoking policy. You cannot smoke anywhere in the building
(or on the roof). if security or any building employee catches someone smoking, it results in immediate expulsion. They are serious about this.
Also: there are pets in the building, but none allowed in my apartment.
My wife and I stayed at this charming apartment during the recent Thanksgiving weekend. Our host did everything possible to make certain our stay was enjoyable. The apartment was clean, organized, the bed and furniture very comfortable and in a fantastic building. Great neighborhood restaurants, security and very helpful concierge. All in all this apartment worked out extremely well and we look forward to visiting it again.
This apartment has it all. Great location and wonderful amenities. We had a great vacation and would visit Portland and stay here again. Jonathan was very responsive and helpful with any concerns - but we had very few of those. We would recommend this booking without any hesitation! The concierge service employees at this building were very helpful. It is convenient to everything one might need, groceries, restaurants, brew pubs, entertainment, shopping, car rentals, and churches to name a few.
Fabulous apartment. Ideal location in heart of the Pearl District. Luxury condo with gym, concierge and cool roof deck with city views. Jonathan was a perfect host and responded very quickly to all of our questions. We plan to stay here again.
Hubby and I very much enjoyed our stay at Jonathan's apartment. Clean, spacious, and centrally located to shopping, museums, restaurants, and all the other great things Portland has to offer. The building (Indigo) is fabulous. Courteous concierge, very reasonable parking, and the rooftop patio is spectacular! We would not hesitate to recommend Jonathan's apartment to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Portland. So glad we found it!
Great communication, got all the info I needed and more! The apartment definitely lived up to the description and pics, and it was very easy to walk to the light rail. Would definitely stay here again.
Apartment is just perfect! Great location, most impressive building downtown & access to a roof-deck with astonishing views of city and fireplaces made my visit unforgettable!
Only thing you'll regret is to leave this beautiful place!
Could not have been more happy with this booking - from communication to the actual apartment (which is a DREAM!), Jonathan was the most accommodating host. Everything was perfect!!
Hello! I will only rent out my place when I am on the road, but here's a little bit about me:
I love movies (sci-fi thrillers and dramas mainly) and games of all kinds. I work in autism, training parents of autistic children. I have published a book, and am working on becoming a screenwriter. I used to live in New York City but decided the west coast was more my speed. I love the weather, the people, the food carts, and the 'smaller city' vibe of Portland.
I love my building and apartment and am sure you will too. It's a great place to stay.
