It is within walking distance of the Alberta Arts District, the Historic Mississippi Avenue district and the North Williams Corridor. This is a quiet residential neighborhood, great for walking and bicycling and close to the Peninsula Park Rose Garden.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Seven of our family members stayed at the Piedmont Guest House when we were in Portland for our grandson's wedding. We found the house to be very comfortable, well equipped, and convenient to major roads and the University of Portland where the event took place. The Safeway grocery, Walgreen's, and Starbucks were within a block..very convenient. I baked 5 doz. orange rolls for the Sun. brunch, entertained at a salmon dinner for 13 and found all the equipment needed. A very cozy place for family time and a gracious host.
