Thank you for the nice review Theresa. As you discovered, Portland is a big city and separated into four quadrants divided West and East by the Willamette river. Crossing quadrants can add to your travel time. Your visit also happened to be during the Eclipse (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) weekend and traffic, as I emailed to tell you, was severely impacted by the event.
I made a time lapse video today, Saturday at 4pm leaving the front door driving the speed limit in light traffic and arriving Downtown Portland (SW 6th) in exactly 12 minutes. (Hidden by Airbnb) has an amazing feature that anyone visiting can use to estimate travel time from any AirBNB to a destination and even specify time of day to plan their visit.
