My husband and I stayed at Hotel deLuxe for two nights on a get-a-way to Portland this November. The hotel was charming; its totally vintage, but restored with a careful level of attention to detail that allows the original charm of the building to shine through while still offering modern day amenities and all the comforts of a great little boutique hotel.
Picture subway tile bathrooms, vintage cast iron tubs, brand new fixtures, sinks etc and really comfortable beds with crisp white linens. The whole thing has been tastefully updated retaining plenty of its lovely vintage 1920-30's charm in the lobby and rooms, 1950's touches in the bar, and the essence of what one might expect in a grand 1930-something dining room at Gracie's, the inhouse restaurant. the whole place oozes oldschool luxury, but in a unpretentious, comfortable kind of low-key way. Built in 1912 (I think), the building has the extra large original windows (fully draped) and large closets. The standard rooms are quite small so upgrade if you are in the market for extra space.
This hotel is all about service and it really shows. From the moment we were greeted by the bellman to the moment we checked out we had only impeccable, friendly and courteous encounters with everyone we met. My favourite details include the well stocked 'honour bar' with a selection of unique local flavours and treats, the pillow menu, the ice cream delivery menu (local of course), the pet friendly amenities, and the 'make it so' button on the phone which, as you might imagine, attends to your every desire.
The location is also priceless as you can walk to downtown, the Pearl and NW Broadway which are all within 12 blocks without all the noise and fuss of the hotels which are right downtown. Its the best location in Downtown Portland.
Gracie's breakfast is delicious as well. Tip; if you drive find some off the street parking in a lot right around the corner for 12$ overnight and skip the valet which is $27.
We will be back for sure!
