I was SO excited to move in here three months ago. I loved the location and apartment manager. Sarah is THE BEST!!!!!! Very unique and caring person. The maintenance man Dennis is great too. My repairs always get done and done quickly. I

great downtown location. living in central downtown, you understand that parking will be limited and YES there will be crazy people around the block. that just comes with downtown living!!

i enjoyed living here. charming unit with hardwood floors. VERY convenient location. i loved living within a couple blocks of the city's trendiest shops/restuarants and tourist destinations.

management is great. no complaints overall. very affordable 1-bed apartments-- i don't think they accept any pets.

These other reviews are outdated. The manager there is very friendly, and there is no longer a nightclub on the lower level. In fact, the windows are specially treated to reduce city noise.

AWESOME location-- powell's, ace hotel etc. are

I have lived there for almost three years.

As an update to the Anna K review below: The Bettie Ford is now gone, and construction is finished across the street. The building is much quieter than it used to be. I haven't noticed as many students/dorm types lately either. There are some loud student types still, though. Luck of the draw, I guess, on whether you're a neighbor to one of them.

The walls/floors/ceilings aren't too bad. They are reasonably thick, better than other cheap buildings I've lived at. But you will hear some noise. These aren't concrete or double walled or anything.

Maintenance is pretty good, especially since the building serves as overflow for a hotel. It gets a little dirty over the weekend, but really not bad overall.

The male manager who was here before was a slacker and not very helpful. The new female manager is much better; she's friendly and helpful. The maintenance guy is also good.

No A/C in these units by default, but you can add your own), and I highly recommend doing so. It's a brick oven in the summers. The flipside is that the building stays warm in the winter. Heating bills are pretty low.

The ventilation is pretty poor, and some apartments have no view/sunlight/breezes because they're up against a building. Tiny rooms -- 320 sq ft studios.

The best and worst part is the area. VERY convenient, within walking distance to MAX, Powell's, Safeway, everything. But there's a mental health clinic, low income housing, a drug treatment center, etc. around, so there's a fair amount of bums and crazies. But considering the convenience of the location, the price of the units is really quite low.

Residents do tend to keep to themselves (me included!) but there are some nice people here, especially some pleasant older residents.

Overall: move here for the pretty good price and the great location. Don't move here if you have high standards for a peaceful neighborhood, views, large square footage, etc.

I've lived at the Washington Plaza for six months so before you fork over the first month's rent and deposit (which I still haven't gotten back!!) read this. The Bettie Ford club is on the first floor so Thurs-Sat nights are mind-numbing, even from the fourth floor. This might be a plus if you're a musician because it's a great time to play loud. Also there is a construction site directly across the street, so days aren??t much quieter. Second, the tenants like to keep to themselves, I've never met my next door neighbor. However the walls are thin so you'll end up knowing more about them than you'd like to know anyway, vice versa. Third, downtown is full of drunks, crazies and addicts (hence the cascadia, taft house, and other facilities). Last the building manager is completely and utterly incompetent. The only thing he knows how to do is take lunch breaks and deposit rent checks. Since I moved out I have called him twice a day everyday and I still don't know if my deposit is coming. On the plus side, the location is pretty good, Max downtown is free (but not for much longer). One more thing I forgot to mention are the tiny studios, not even 500sq ft. I hope this was helpful. Good luck.
