What an excellent home base to explore Portland. More breweries and restaurants to chose from it made our heads spin. The unit was clean and comfortable for our family of 4. Will return again for sure.
We were excited to have a stay in Portland from traveling overseas to see THE eclipse! Block 17 is very nice, but many times I heard many different residents at different times complain about Stay Alfred guests. I met a few residents near the lobby and asked if this has been a problem, and an older couple stated it started before summer and management never mentioned about Stay Alfred to its residents. According to them, the majority of residents are extremely frustrated that their home is now a viewed as a hotel. We also heard the front desk leasing agents also complain to the residents that Stay Alfred folks have been frustrating to deal with too! I want to feel welcomed by the Block 17 front desk representatives. That is not how I want to feel unknowingly renting out a vacation rental in a apartment/residential building. The grills upstairs were very difficult to work and dogs barking in the building were a bit of a headache. Otherwise, the views were great and location was amazing.
Block 17 Portland condo is a beautiful unit and the building amenities are terrific. The views are incredible, especially from the rooftop. Within walking distance to restaurants, breweries & shops. Easy road access when venturing out of the city.
We will definitely stay here again!
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.
