Owner description: Where downtown Portland comes to life. Downtown Portland is buzzing with activity. And it's not just the coffee. There is an energy here that charges every moment with fun and excitement. In the heart of downtown, you'll find Pioneer Place – four city blocks filled with shopping, dining and entertainment. Add tax-free shopping, and you're certain to have the time of your life.

I found the shops very disjointed, we gave up after a short visit.
Maybe we just didn't know where to go. But we didn't have the energy or time to try to figure it all out.
I wouldn't go again, altho it is in the heart of the city and lots to see around the area.

Nice to have this type of mall in a downtown setting, The neighborhood has many choices for food from trucks/shacks to fine dining. Transit is as good as it gets.

Pioneer Place is easily accessible in downtown. We parked in a nearby garage and walked all over downtown. The shops in Pioneer Place were nice and some stores are upscale. Good variety of shops as well.

I've lived all my life in the Pacific NW and have many fond memories of shopping, walking and working in downtown Portland, Oregon, but something has happened in the last 5 years or so. This is no longer a fun place to go. It's really quite depressing. Most of the shops in Pioneer Place have left leaving only the bottom floor with a few stores. We recently walked from the new Apple Store on 5th down to the Pine Street Market. It's was really depressing to see how many empty buildings there are. The City is also extremely dirty. It used to be you only really saw a lot of homeless people down around Burnside and Old Town. Now they are everywhere. Every block we walked on smelled like urine. Portland seems to be proud of their slogan "keep Portland weird" but if by weird they mean dirty and dangerous, then they can keep it. I was in downtown Seattle recently and at least it was clean and vibrant. It felt like Portland once did many years ago. The Mayor and other public figures really need to do something if they want visitors to come to Portland again, because I'm hearing this sentiment from more and more people who say they no longer go over to Portland from Vancouver, WA any more. Really SAD. For visitors who want to do some shopping, I suggest you head a little South of the City to Bridgeport Village. It's clean, friendly and there are lots of shops and restaurants.

The Pioneer Place shopping mall/center seemed pretty compact and limited in its selection of stores. Much of this is because the nicer brands have stand alone storefronts near Pioneer Square. It's also a bit weird that the mall is split across an intersection and you have to cross a bridge to get to each side. In any case it offers an escape from rain or heat and is conveniently located.
