Great place staff great and the place was top notch. The place was very nice the view was awesome had a wonderful stay
The two apartments we rented for a college reunion were ready on time and clean. There was ample space, but no parking and the apartments felt more corporate than we would have liked. Not the vibe we expect in Portland. But the real problem is the hostility of the full time residents in Block 17. Twice we were insulted for being short-stay renters. There is some serious resentment in that development over Stay Alfred's presence. After the second encounter, we felt like everyone was monitoring us - a very quiet and respectful group of adults.
Super clean. Wonderful amenities. Excellent downtown location. Gym and rooftop porch were excellent. Neighborhood is a little sleepy at night in terms of nightlight, but it's not too far away (10-15 min walk or short ride). Pictures are very representative.
Just rented an apartment at Block 17 through StayAlfred. I was a little leery initially as I wasn't familiar with the company but everything was just as described, the building and apartment were very clean, in a great location and had everything we needed other than a parking lot/garage and the rooftop deck and gym were added bonuses! The Pearl District in Portland is the perfect area to base yourself for exploring and I would highly recommend staying there and this property.
Has everything you need.
I gave 3 stars because I feel for the high price it fetches, the following are disappointing:
1. NO PARKING ( big drawback if you have a car, you have to park at safeway and move your car at 7 am and then keep moving to paid parking every couple of hours all day)
2. Bedrooms need have light blocking shades- very bright.
3. MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR ENTRY CODES A FEW DAYS BEFORE- NO WAY TO GET INTO THE UNIT WITHOUT IT AND NOONE AFTER HOURS TO HELP YOU.
WE had ours but another poor family with kids were stranded in the lobby with no emailed codes and could not reach anyone after hours,\. Had to pay for a last minute hotel for the night.
