If Marilyn Monroe were alive today, she’d stay at the deLuxe, a Provenance Hotel. Just over 100 years old, the hotel underwent a major face-lift in the 1940s, and again in 2004, and has meticulously maintained its glamorous, Hollywood Regency-era styling. Antique Czech crystal chandeliers, beveled mirrors, hallways lined with vintage film photos and elaborate gold leaf–accented ceilings make this beauty red carpet–ready at any hour.
Bed and Bath
Blurring the line between grand and boutique, the 130 bedrooms are a tribute to the hotel’s moniker, deLuxe, layering Art Deco details and creature comforts, such as a pillow menu and ice cream room service care of local favorite Salt & Straw. Demure crystal light fixtures (vintage, of course) lend sparkle to large rooms dressed in mellow tones with pops of rich color from the regal green floor-to-ceiling curtains. Subway tile–lined bathrooms feature pedestal sinks and marble floors and prove everything old is new again.
Right off the lobby, two old-timey Portland restaurants continue the throwback theme. Outfitted with velvet banquettes, more overhead glitter and marble-topped tables, Gracie’s is a great spot for breakfast. Order the Elvis: triple-decker pancakes layered with peanut butter, bacon and bananas. At night (or any hour, for that matter — it opens at 10 a.m. on weekends), pull up a chair at the curvy Driftwood Room, a noirish lounge untouched down to the vinyl-rimmed bar and the cedar slat walls.
How to Get There
Opted to stay here while in Portland instead of my "usual" near the airport! Smart choice!
Everything was as nice as a Hotel could be. The Hotel itself is beautiful. A lot of money was poured into this place to make as wonderful as it is. The room was well appointed and quite comfortable. I was actually able to sleep on the road, which is quite rare, and speaks to the quality of the mattress and pillows. The restaurant was exceptional. It was so well decorated that I thought at times that I was in one of the finer Hotels in Europe!
At last the staff! They were the best! Everyone of the young people that I had contact with with were polite and professional! Everyone one of them went out of their way to make you feel at home.
I hope I can find work again in Portland so I can go back!
Beautiful hotel! Great location and helpful staff. We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Deluxe. The price and the amenities (champagne! Lemonade! Wine tastings!) makes an ideal choice for Portland accommodations.
On our 4th visit to this wonderful hotel, we found the service had only gotten better. From the valets to the front desk, to the lounge, everyone we dealt with was outstanding. The champagne at the start of the cocktail hour was a very pleasant treat. Wonderful room! We will continue to stay there when in Portland for that very special occasion.
We (two of us) stayed at the Hotel Deluxe in February for a birthday weekend. The hotel is a very easy walk to great stuff in downtown Portland or, if you prefer, only a half block from the nearest lite rail station. Great dining options around. The hotel itself is very nice and they have a pillow menu! It's an old building with a mail drop slot down to the lobby. The hotel restaurant is a nice big ballroom style room and the food was good (only had breakfast), but I'm not sure I would have dinner there. There are so many other interesting options around town.
The hotel was one of our most unexpectedly favorite things is Portland. The location is the best, walking distance to downtown, 23rd steer, the pearl district, and the Timbers beautiful old stadium.
The room was the perfect size for two people, very cozy, the water pressure in the shower was an added bonus. The bar downstairs will have you thinking you stepped back in time, with a great selection
The thing that makes The hotel so special is the staff. Very accommodating and very knowledgeable about what to do and where to visit in Portland.
We took advantage of the hot coffee in the morning and fruit instilled water throughout the day. Will return for sure!
