What is temporary housing?

Temporary Housing, also known as corporate housing, is a niche lodging segment providing temporary accommodation needs for 30 days or longer. Unlike a Hotel, temporary apartments are located in residential areas. All rooms are completely furnished.

What makes Portland Lodging & Tourism a better fit for me?

The location alone makes it a good fit for anyone visiting from out of town for business or pleasure. Because of its great Inner Southeast Portland location in the Reed neighborhood (close to Reed College) there are a series of interconnected neighborhoods (Sellwood, Westmorland, Brooklyn, Division, Hawthorne, Belmont) that offer easy access to great food and entertainment including local favorites (Bird & Bear, C Bar, Rocio’s Mexican Restaurant, Gladstone Street Pub), green spaces (Rhododendron Gardens & Eastmoreland Golf Course), cultural offerings (Bagdad Theatre & Pub) and tax-free shopping.

Portland Lodging and Tourism is 10 miles from the airport, centrally located in Southeast Portland (Reed Neighborhood) and close to all sorts of activities and sights to see. Public transportation is easily accessible: TriMet Bus #17 and Light Rail (Orange Line), as well as bike trips.
