Ritchie's well maintained riverfront condo was perfect for us. Great river views and a short walk (~10 minutes) to the Pearl district. The condo has all the standard amenities: kitchen, washer/dryer, TV, etc .. to make your stay comfortable. We visited Portland with our 3 month old without any problems.
Ritchie was a great host as well. Even though he was out of town when we made our reservation, he got us the keys, and freed up his parking spot before we got there!
If you are headed over to the PDX, be sure to look him up.
Perfect location for anything in Portland. Walk or ride the public transportation to just about anywhere. We arrived at PDX and took the MAX to within a few blocks of the Condo and walked over. For those who want to arrive by AmTrak, the Union Station is just a block or two away....in fact, you can see the Union Station tower from the kitchen window. If we had come by car, we would have used the assigned parking spot which is located conveniently close to the Condo.
Ritchie let us set our check-in and check-out times so that they worked optimum with our flights. We did not actually meet Ritchie, but he had things all ready for us so that it was easy to get in and get settled. He was very comfortable to work with.
The Condo has a nice deck with a view of the river and running/walking route. The unit is set up great for a couple. The bed wasn't too soft or too firm. The place has all the usual appliances and big flat screen TV in the living room. The couch was quite comfortable.
A very easy home to adjust to and a very pleasant stay.
We very much enjoyed our four-night stay in Ritchie Metzler's Riverfront Condo. The condo has a nice view over the river and sitting on the little balcony, one can watch the boats go by and chat with the neighbors. The condo was clean and comfortable, and suited our stay very well. It's a short walk to a wonderful bakery for breakfast in the downtown area, and a slightly longer walk (15 mins) along the river side to the famous Saturday market. We had rented a car, so it was very nice to have access to a reserved parking space in the condo area.
Ritchie couldn't have been a nicer host -- meeting us when we arrived and when we left, and in immediate phone contact when necessary. Although we ate out most of the time, Ritchie allowed us to dip into some of his supplies if/when we needed. He also gave us some good suggestions where to visit when we left Portland for the Mt Hood area and then the coast.
Oh yes, don't forget to bring your swimwear -- the condo's pool and jacuzzi make for a very relaxing end to a long day of sightseeing!
