    Wet spacious clean unit with everything we needed.

    Barbara, 2 night business trip, Oct. 2, 2021

    Verified Hotels.com guest review

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This hotel is perfectly located and set up for visitors to Portland. Location is a block or two out of the main shopping/dining district. The city itself is very walkable. The apartment has everything you want or need, on top of being well-designed and furnished. It is especially suited for pandemic travel. We got takeout food several times and had the dishes and utensils we needed. Never saw anyone in the hall while we were there. The only caution is- you need to be pretty tech savvy. The doors to the building and apartment were keyless. The TV runs from streaming on your phone or tablet with your home cable or wireless account. Be sure you have those passwords when you come. My husband is pretty good with that stuff, but it took a day for him to figure out how the tv worked.

    This was the perfect place for our family. It was super comfortable and had everything we needed for meals and down time between our adventures around Portland. The 121 Middle team was great and responsive when we reached out. We would definitely stay here again. I wish they had spots in other cities!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This property was amazing, located in a perfect spot, walkable to many great restaurants and the ferry pier. The room was very nice and we loved the non-descript building. It is a very well done cross between an upscale short term rental and an upscale hotel. We would absolutely stay here again!

    Loved the room and location, easy walk to everything. Kitchen came in handy for leftovers, and room was very private. Only heads up is to avoid if you struggle with apps. Key and TV run through phone apps.
