Stay Alfred’s newest vacation rental property is located right in the heart of downtown Portland, in the quiet Business District. The Essex House offers all the comforts that our guests have come to expect, as well as perfect location to explore everything that Portland has to offer. First off, the building itself is amazing. The 9-foot ceilings and large windows allow plenty of natural light as well as dramatic city and waterfront views. Porcelain tile floors, granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances and fixtures add and extra degree of elegance to home away from home. After a workout in the state-of-the-art fitness center, relax in the hot tub and sauna. If the weather’s nice, enjoy the outdoor sun terrace and barbecue grill.
Of course, we don’t expect you to spend your entire vacation inside your unit (although after seeing it, you may want to). The best part about Stay Alfred’s properties is how close you’ll be to all kinds of dining and entertainment. In the blocks surrounding the Essex House you’ll find some of Portland’s best restaurants: Veritable Quandary, Raven and Rose, Nel Centro, Shigezo, and The Picnic House. Want to take in some of the city’s unique culture? The Portland Art Museum and the Oregon Historical Society are quarter of a mile away, as well at the historic Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.
Portland’s amazing shopping is never far away, either. Pioneer Place Mall is a five-minute walk up 3rd Avenue, where you’ll find over 100 upscale retail shops and eateries, like Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co., as well as Regal Cinemas. Keep heading north and you’ll run into the famous Portland Saturday Market (it’s also open Sundays), nationally recognized as the largest continuously operating open-air arts and crafts market in the country. Don’t forget to stop by Voodoo Doughnut, home of the original Bacon Maple Bar!
No matter what your plans are for your stay in the City of Roses, The Essex House is conveniently located close to the Transit Mall and multiple MAX stations, making travel to all parts of the city a breeze. Like all of our Portland vacation rentals, you can expect the highest standards of cleanliness and hospitality. Our free smartphone app provides you an insider’s guide to the city, and our super-friendly customer care agents are more than happy to answer any questions you might have. Enjoy your vacation, Stay Alfred’s got your back!
