Hotel deLuxe is Portland’s most glamorous pied a tierre
PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland is home to more movie theaters per capita than any other city in the nation and, nestled in the city’s chic West End, Hotel deLuxe offers travelers to the film-obsessed city a glamorous home away from home. With an only-in-Portland spin on the stars of the silver screen, Hotel deLuxe celebrates the Golden Age of American cinema and puts vintage-inspired Art-Deco and Hollywood Modern design within easy walking distance of downtown shopping, restaurants and dining.
Displayed in the corridors Hotel deLuxe’s 130 guestrooms are nearly 400 behind the scenes photographs, film stills and studio shots from Hollywood films from the 1930s to the 1950s. In the lobby a larger-than-life video wall evokes a movie screen and, upstairs, each floor of the hotel is carefully curated to celebrate a specific theme. Guests will find The Maestro (Hitchcock) on the second floor; The Dance and Music Masters (Gene Kelly, Judy Garland, Ginger Rogers, Debra Kerr, Fred Astaire, Cyd Charisse and Bing Crosby) on the third floor; The Rebels (Orson Welles, Elia Kazan, Howard Hawks, John Huston and John Ford) on the fourth floor; The Immigrants (Otto Preminger, Fritz Lang and William Wyler) on the fifth floor; The Europeans (David Lean, Charles Chaplin, Marcel Carné, Jean Renoir, Luchino Visconti, Roberto Rossellini, Frederico Fellini and Ingmar Bergman) on the sixth floor; The Exiles (Ernst Lubitsch, Michael Curtiz and Erich von Sternberg) on the seventh floor; and The Masters (Frank Capra, Billy Wilder and George Cukor) on the eighth floor.
At Hotel deLuxe, each guestroom phone has a “Make It So” button that puts anything guests want literally at their fingertips and all rooms boast a Pillow Menu, Spiritual Menu and iPod Menu so guests can customize their stay. Forgot your iPod? Borrow one from Hotel deLuxe. Buddhist? Taoist? Scientologist? Hotel deLuxe has your book of faith.
Located off the lobby, Gracie’s restaurant is as famed for serving brunch all day, every day as it is for the scrumptious cuisine and glamorous setting and the retro-fabulous Driftwood Room draws in-the-know locals for champagne cocktails, an artisanal Manhattan menu and one of the city’s best happy hours.
