“What an Amazing Gem of a Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I stayed at this hotel in early October and absolutely loved it!! The front desk staff were so friendly and helpful. The doormen were great too! I loved my room.....it had wonderful hollywood movie posters with little lights focussed on then. My bed was really cosy and the room felt sound proofed (I am a very light sleeper....and I never heard a thing from other guests...slept like a baby!!). I loved the location. I wouldn't want to stay further downtown as it is depressing and a bit dodgy down there. Whereas staying at The Hotel DeLuxe felt safe....I was never hassled around there when traveling around on foot. It is also a short walk up to NW 23rd for all the nice cafe's and gift stores. It is a ten minute walk to the plentiful food trucks downtown for a quick dinner.Very close to transit also. I would definitely recommend this hotel in a great neighborhood with wonderful staff.

Room Tip: The back of hotel seemed very quiet...good for sleeping.

Very beautiful hotel but over rated as a 4 Star. Excellent staff and helpful. Recommended a nearby restaurant for a late night dinner. The room was very, very small but very clean and comfortable. Slept soundly.

My grandparents checked in here in 1961 before my wedding, and our family has enjoyed the ambiance and convenience of this hotel ever since. Easy walking to many fine restaurants and shops (including Powell's Books.)

Room Tip: Seventh floor corner suite with 2 queens felt palatial!

We had a great time at Hotel deLuxe - the room was amazing! Big comfortable bed, great bathroom. We were on the back of the building, which was great because it was away from the noise. The staff was great - Andy helped us upon check in to find some great places to go out, and we had some issues with our flight back and the staff and the front desk helped us and printed out our tickets. The valets were also great. We'll definitely be back!

Just had a 3 night stay in this deco-inspired hotel and can't say a single negative thing! Location is fantastic--we were in town for a Timbers game, but even if we weren't the location was great. Walkable to so many good sites and places to eat. This isn't a new place so there are typical old building features like smaller baths and less access to power outlets. I would day this is more of a leisure hotel than a business center, but it works for either. Very friendly and helpful staff, quiet rooms with excellent beds and a pillow menu so you can choose the pillow style you like best. Aveda products, robes, and huge closets and bureaus for stuff. Huge windows. Lovely and a great time.

The DeLuxe is a very attractive, well maintained property with an attentive staff and cool 50's movie themed decor. The room was quite small; typical of this type of property, but the king size bed and linens made for a very restful night. Late sleepers beware, rooms that face the street are subject to a fair amount of workday street noise; not a problem for us though. Close to the Max light rail line, the hotel is an easy commute to downtown (5 minutes) and the airport (about 40 minutes).

This is a very hotel in downtown Portland. I loved my stay. The rooms were very pretty and the tea was delicious. I actually asked for extra tea, which was given right away. In particular, I liked the Speakeasy bar and Ben Hur photo outside of my room. The Internet is free if you become a member of this hotel's rewards group, which is easy and does not cost anything. The Aveda products were also wonderful. I will definitely try to stay here again when I come back. Wonderful staff, too. Great happy hour prices.

Here are a few things to consider:

- I'm from NYC, so I'm not bothered by a small room. It had quite a European feel. This may not be the case for everyone, though.
- Also being from NYC, a 5-10 min walk to museums did not bother me at all. Portland is very pretty and walkable. It's a good way to see things anyway. The hotel is also close to the rail and bus stops.
- I booked on Priceline for a very good rate. The weekend I stayed, rack rates for this hotel were about $50 cheaper than comparable hotels.
