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
This hotel was a delight. The Valet and bell man, Mark, was from our home town in NY State and so instantly made us at home. The front desk staff were friendly and efficient. We checked in a little early and that was no problem. The room had a coffee maker and tea fixings, robes and comfortable beds. We had a corner room so lots of light and space for two of us. The only think that was missing was room in the bathroom to put anything, it was very small and no counter space. Lots of space and nightstand space in the room to make up for it. There were a good number of electric plugs just were we needed them for recharging or deices. Gracie's was terrific for breakfast. We would definitely return to this hotel. The location was comfortable and close to the Pearl district, Powell Bookstore and an easy work to Smith Tea and good restaurants. The front desk staff was so helpful with maps and suggestions.
For our first ever visit to Portland, OR, Hotel Deluxe was perfect! We loved the location from which we could walk everywhere! The service was excellent, rooms comfortable and tastefully decorated (though a bit small), and lobby warm and welcoming. Loved the Hollywood theme including a wonderful selection of books in the lobby, and scrolling black & white photos from old, classic movies. Complimentary champagne a plus, as well as a chic bar and fabulous restaurant. Check it out next time you find yourself headed to Portland!
This is full service High End boutique hotel with an upgraded and stunning lobby hotel with a great lounge and restaurant. The food is good and prices are reasonable. The staff was very polite and they went out of their way to help us by answering questions and providing directions.
The location is central to many downtown Portland locations and within walking distance of the Powell Bookstore. We walked all throughout downtown without any issues. We took the Shuttle from the airport but the hotel offers Valet parking and a garage to Self Park next door. The hotel and restaurant staff was a cut above most similar hotels I stayed at. I upgraded to a two room queen. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom had a great shower with a magnifying make up mirror. The furnishings were in perfect condition with no chips or scratches and plenty of lighting with very modern lamps and overhead lighting. The mattress was superior, very high quality and comfortable. The TV’S (50”-55”) were far superior to any other property I stayed at with many channels including HBO and Cinamax. What really stood out was the climate control HVAC. It was the best one I have ever experienced in all my stays. It was very quiet, with equal cooling and on the wall adjustments. I only had to adjust up or down a degree-PERFECT.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Portland. We stayed at the Deluxe 5 nights and it rates as one of the best Hotels we have stayed at recently.
With a name like Hotel Deluxe it’s natural to wonder if in fact it will live up to its name? We spent four nights at this delightful hotel. Checked in late, we got upgraded to a suite which was a fab start. Lounge, 2 TVs, coffee making, fluffy towels, luxury toiletries and we had beautiful views of the mountains from one side. Great location in the Pearl district - shops, bars, breweries, music venues all readily accessible. Loved the golden age movie theme to the hotel, rotating film images and a big screen in reception and photography throughout. Happened upon a champagne reception a couple of nights as we returned around about 6 o clock where we met some interesting people and great host. Fun mini golf opposite which was cool $6 per person. No hesitation recommending this place, we didn’t eat at the restaurant as we preferred to eat out but the cocktail bar was beautiful and the barman was one of the best. Infused water available in the reception as was coffee in the morning.
Loved the Art Deco meets Hollywood glamour theme. The bed was a delight to sleep in, the staff friendly and polite, and the Driftwood a great little cocktail bar. I stay in lots of anonymous, business hotels with work and it was so refreshing to visit somewhere so full of character and charm. A definite must stay again if I ever come back to Portland.
