Buyer Beware

This building is old, the rooms are very small. The staff was very friendly; however, there was no hot water meaning FREEZING cold shower. That in itself would not be bad IF management made an accommodation. The manager's offer of $15 discount was insulting and further aggravated by the manor I was treated at check out.

Overrated Stay

The hotel is cheap dressed up in classy, and topped off with absurdly expensive. The toilet was actually a plastic public toilet in a tiny bathroom. Also, there was left over trash from the last guest in the trash can, and the bathtub looked like it had been stained with left over grime. The room's decor was no better than any Best Western, and was much smaller. The best was comfortable, but there was so much noise coming in from the hall and outside that sleep was impossible. The staff was decently cordial, but no one was particularly helpful with the exception of the valet team (there were the gem in this hotel's crown). The hotel also gouges you every which way for extra fees... overall, my experience was less than satisfactory, and I'll never pay that much to spend a night in Hotel DeLuxe again.

Nothing Spectacular Here.

Hotel Deluxe is approximately four blocks from Portland's buzzing urban center. The intervening blocks at night are quiet and feel a bit dicey but we were never hasselled on our way to or from the hotel. The room is unexpectedly small as is the bathroom. We called to ask whether there was a tub in the room, we were told yes and turned up to find a shower stall that would be considered small even by European standards. On the first day by 3p.m. the bed had not been made, a bit of a disappointment to return to a messy room. The hotel's charm is its old cinema theme, the staff however needs to be more familiar with the names of the actors on the key cards...Eddie Rochester Anderson is not Sydney Poitier and I don't care what it says on the computer. The Saturday market is a must, remember that it is divided into two sections; one for imported stuff, the other for hand-made stuff sold by the artists and artisans. Oh and hotel is easily accessible by rail, no need for an expensive taxi.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Lots of restaurants surround the hotel. India House may not be inviting but the food is yummy and for breakfast go to Mother's Bistro and Bar and have the greek frittata it is phenomenal. If you like good coffee the Coffee House on SW Broadway and Alder makes an excellent Mexican Mocha.

Snowy weekend

Overall it was a good stay. The staff was great. The room was as expected. However, from this type of hotel I really expect the heat to be more than a space heater in the room (the room heat was not working and was not fixed while we were there). Bathroom was a bit cold. I suspect the snow event slowed things down a bit for them.

Cute, but needs updating

The hotel is really cute, but it's old. The walls are thin and we could hear the conversation next door as if they were in the room.

small

although, the hotel Deluxe had a vintage feel to it, the room we stayed in was the smallest queen bed room i have ever stayed in before. At $169/night, I really expected more. I understand it is close to the downtown Portland area, but so is the Watertown hotel in Seattle and that cost just as much but provided way more. I will say that the staff were friendly and helpful, but all in all, it fell below my expectations

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.

Rooms

The Rooms At The Hotel Are Very Small, and no refrigerator in the room which would be nice. The beds are very comforatable. Not much to the hotel really. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Not for children!!!

Not 4 star quality

First and last, the room was TINY. We had a king deluxe room and my husband and I could not walk anyplace in the room and pass each other. With the bathroom door opeon, access through the room was blocked. It was warm and we could not control the thermostat, even though there was one in the room. Service was great, the bar and restaurant were good, and the common areas of the hotel were nice. But we won't return to that tiny room. There was not even any place to comfortably sit down except on the bed. Neighborhood was quiet.
