Over rated hotel at 4 stars

Rooms were small. The bathroom was even smaller. No bathroom exhaust fan, so the shower steamed everything up. The door and windows were very thin, allowing any and all noise to enter the room.

Soild "10" Experience

If the world held a Hotel Olympics, this hotel would easily be awarded solid "10's" all across the board. Perhaps, it is the old world charm that one expected in the days of honest-to-goodness hospitality while traveling. These folks prove that it is still very possible to extend that extra hand and treat guests with a super positive attitude which is easily returned by gracious visitors. Don't miss a chance to stay here while visiting Portland and see first-hand, first-class service!

Lovely place to stay in Portland

The staff at the door were all very nice and seemed motivated to offer any kind of help you needed. They have 24 hr room service. They will even bring you things not on menu like Voodoo Doughnuts. The Driftwood Room serves some wonderful signature cocktails. Happy Hour goes until 11pm, which certainly made me happy! The food was excellent. Gracies is a beautiful and relaxing restaurant. It was my first time visiting Portland. I will certainly plan to stay at Hotel De Luxe again. Next time I won't rent a car. The hotel is located right on the TriMet that goes to and from the airport!

A hotel with alot of classical style

While I was there on business I went to the bar downstairs I believe it's gracies sports bar and it was not noisy at all fairly quite but relaxing to watch the game. The bar hostess was very friendly. Valet service was fantastic always right on top of all decisions before you need to make them. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Location makes it nice and quite on the outskirts of town. Hotel deluxe is a classical movie themed boutique hotel. With pictures of the classics on the wall and hints of rooms like the screening room gives the guest a feeling of being a classic movie star.

Friendly staff, cushy bed

The hotel is handsome and has a great, friendly, well-trained staff. Unfortunately it is a bit off the beaten path; most Portland hotspots are a hike, although the hotel is right on the MAX line so it isn't too hard to get around. The room was a bit small but had fabulous high ceilings which made it feel bigger. The bed was very comfortable with high thread count linens and a cozy comforter. The hotel restaurant, Gracie's, is good and has a nice mix of higher end dinners as well as sandwiches. The restaurant is a plus since most other restaurants are at least 8 blocks away. Even the coffee places are far! The hotel is relatively close to the Pearl District but still a bit far from both the Pearl and the main downtown section of Portland. I recommend the hotel highly as long as the location does not present a problem for you.

Both of the Jake restaurants are about 8 blocks away--Jake's Grill which is in a wonderful old hotel with fabulous murals and good food and Jake's Crawfish, with really fabulous fish dishes.

You've Got to Pay to Live Hollywood

The hotel is decorated in a very "old hollywood" style, which is cute but sometimes a little self-conscious. The decor also makes the hallways and rooms feel claustrophobic at times. Our room was beautiful, albeit small (despite being called a "queen deluxe"). The window, unfortunately, faced other hotel rooms and didn't create a sense of "openness," contributing to a slightly enclosed feeling. I loved the subway tile in the bathrooms and the tub was quite deep. There was also an iHome in our room, which was an unexpected bonus. The Driftwood Bar, located in the lobby, has been one of my favorite bars for about a decade and it is pretty much unchanged. One of Portland's best-kept secrets! We stay in Portland about four times a year and usually stay in the same place. This was our first time at Hotel DeLuxe. The location is good and parking on the street is easier than in the heart of downtown, but I'm not sure we would choose to stay here again unless there was a great bargain on a larger room.

Nightlife tip: In Hotel

The Driftwood Bar is dark and ambient. Champagne cocktails during happy hour are $5. Get dressed up (or not) and stare at yourself in the huge glass mirrors... You're sure to feel Hollywood glam.
