This condo offered the quality and cleanliness to be a thoroughly relaxing homebase from which to explore Portland. The owner, Jane, was immediately and graciously responsive by email for any matters related to the condo. World Foods, on the next block, offers OG selections and a vast array of foods. Location is superb. The Pearl has a 98 walkability score and a terrific metro system...do check out the weekly / monthly ticket discounts. Construction of a hotel is underway, wrapping most of the city block. With windows closed, there is negligible noise and workers leave at 3:30. We found the building project to provide a fascinating window into complex engineering. It added to our experience. First Thursday Art night is a delight. We would definitely return and would recommend to friends.
