The renovated Hotel deLuxe takes the shimmering elegance of Hollywood’s golden era and runs with it. In this rainy city, the deLuxe brightens the mood with light, alligator-textured hallway wallpaper, and buttery yellows and lime-sherbet-colored rooms.
Each floor has a classic film theme: The Rebels (adorned with photos of Ford, Wells, Kazan), the Immigrants (Wyler, Preminger and Lang) and others. In the lobby is Gracie’s restaurant, as well as the Driftwood Room, which is a celebrated gathering place.
The Hotel deLuxe is a few blocks off Broadway, but Portland’s public transit makes it easy to enjoy local foods, festivals and fun.
