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 was a wonderful treasure to find. Absolutely unique and old Hollywood style. The bar was very quaint and truly great service. Ate in the main restaurant as well. Also great service. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Will definitely stay again.
We stayed in a room with two beds, and had a great corner view of Portland. We didn't have a chance to try the food, had an early appointment. The bathroom seemed a bit small at first but once I was showering at getting ready it was just perfect. PLUS!! I huge mirror to do my makeup. I really liked the lamps, as you could change the brightness of the lamp. I can't forget, my absolute favorite coffee in the room, Portland Roasting coffee. I just love it so much! We called down to have the car brought around, and it was there and ready after we had checked out. The front desk staff was friendly at check in and check out. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends.
I attended a business meeting at the hotel over the past 2 days and stayed 3 nights. The guys who organized all the meeting food were genuinely stellar. They came and went carrying things in and out as quietly as I have ever experienced in a hotel business meeting. Food was excellent. Sleeping rooms are fine. Nice bedding. Boutique hotel with excellent service.
My wife and I had a wonderful stay on our wedding weekend and decided to stay longer that anticipated. The room was comfortable, the front desk was courteous, the Valet was quick and made us feel important and the room service was exceptional. My other family and guests had an excellent experience as well. Thank you to everyone and we will certainly be staying again.
I rented a room "with a view", however when I check into the suite all tops of the windows were covered in film making it impossible to see outside. If your looking for a room with sunlight or a view this is not the hotel.
