Apartment Review from a Current Renter

It is a lovely community with well kept common areas. The units are very nice, but livability depends a lot on the neighbors around you and their respectfulness of you.

Apartment Review from a Current Renter

I would not recommend this apartment complex because it is not my job to fill this building for you.
At the overpriced rent you charge you should be so full you are turning people away. If I need to recommend people to this complex to fill up the available apartments then my rent should be cheaper.
Thank you for sharing your feedback. While we certainly agree it is not your job to fill the building, we take pride in offering incentives to our residents who do choose to refer their friends or family to our community. If at any point you’d like more information about our Resident Referral Program, I’d be happy to help.

Would:
The staff is great.

Would not:
Nearby restaurants and grocery stores are non-existent. The price is high for what you are getting compared to other apartments in the area. We've recently seen 3 brand new apartments in the area with more amenities, equivalent building standards (LEED certified), with much better rent prices.

I feel safe, staff is great, the apartments and buildings are well kept, close to downtown.

Rent is expensive but again that is Portland.
Thank you for your comment!
We value your time and experience with us as one of our many satisfied residents. Although The Matisse is highly competitive in terms of price and value vs. nearly any other comparable community in this immediate South Waterfront neighborhood, please never hesitate to come speak with management directly if pricing is ever a concern. We'd be happy to review your charges and explore the most cost effective renewal options. Our goal is to keep you with us and happy for years to come.

Sincerely,

Your Matisse Team

Downtown living is expensive but I feel like I get the best value here at the Matisse.

Apartment Review from a Current Renter

The apartments are decent and it a relatively quiet area of the city. The streetcar stop is very convenient and the staff is great.
Dear Thai,
The south waterfront is a great area to live in, just a street car ride to downtown, but still it's own little oasis. It is great to see you enjoy living at The Matisse. We take pride in the community and appreciate you as a resident. Thank you very much for your feedback.

I recommend it to everyone, but it's too expensive more most single friends. Rent is easier to afford in multiple bedroom homes that can be shared.
Thank you so much for continuing to recommend The Matisse to friends and colleagues. We are always happy to give them up to date information to see if any of the studios, one bedroom, or two bedroom floor plans fit what they are looking for. Thank you again!

I already have recommended someone move into this complex and they have been here for over a year.
Greg,
We appreciate you recommending The Matisse to your friends and colleagues. We hope that you continue to enjoy your living experience and feel proud to share with others.

Sincerely,

Are you kidding me? Incredibly thin walls, loud neighbors with no respect for others, and poor sound deadening; able to hear running water IN the wall. I've lived in many places in socal and none have been like this...ever...

Please know that we strive for a comfortable living environment for all of our residents and noise concerns are taken very seriously. We’re sorry to see that you’ve been frustrated and hope that you will contact us directly at 503-546-3000 so that we can work with you towards resolution.

Thank you,

We love that the office staff take the time to get to know the tenants personally. We also really enjoy the small perks like being able to rent kayaks and such.

Apartment Review from an Independent Evaluator

This is a very nice community. The leasing agent went above and beyond to make the tour a personable experience.

Apartment Review from an Independent Evaluator

Spacious apartments with great natural light! Can't beat the South Waterfront location, so close to downtown, but out of the fray of it all! Beautiful apartments in a beautiful location!

Awesome staff.
