Hotel deLuxe Review

If you want a taste of Hollywood's Golden Era, this one's for you: the original chandeliers and guilded ceilings of the historic building's golden lobby evoke the necessary glitz and glamour; 400-plus black-and-white photographs on the hallway walls are arranged by movie themes; and the for-loan collection of DVDs includes 50 classics (Casablanca, anyone?). In addition, the deLuxe offers tasteful, earth-toned rooms with comfty beds—and lots of fun choices. A music menu offers a pre-programed iPod; the spiritual menu choices includie the King James Bible, Torah, Koran, Tao Te Ching, and "What Is Scientology;" and the pillow menu has a comprehensive selection. The bartenders in the dim, cozy 1950s-style Driftwood Room lounge serve up mean craft cocktails.

    Fantastic Boutique Hotel Near the Pearl District

    The Hotel deLuxe is a fantastic boutique hotel located within walking distance of the hip and fun Pearl District. My wife and I were given a complimentary upgrade to a King Feature, which had a couch in the room and was quite spacious overall. Only minor gripe would be that the bathroom was a little on the small side and our tub didn't drain very well at first (to the hotel's credit, the issue was quickly resolved after they were notified). The valet parking ($28/night) is efficient and convenient and there are plenty of restaurant and nightlife options within a short walk from the hotel. Other than the bathtub issue, we had a fantastic stay, due largely in part to the fantastic and courteous service that we received from the hotel staff. Next time we are back in Portland, we would have no reservations staying at the Hotel deLuxe again!
