If you're in love with old Hollywood glamour, then you'll want to book a stay at Portland's Hotel deLuxe. The design and details of this downtown hotel pay tribute to the Golden Era of Hollywood filmmaking, with its architectural details and decor referencing the 1920s and '40s.
The hotel has earned plenty of awards since opening four years ago, including multiple appearances on Condé Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice List and Traveler's Gold List. I'd love to stay in the hotel's Marlene Dietrich suite, its top-of-the-line accommodation, which features an eight-foot circular bed with high-thread-count duvets and linens atop a custom pillow-top mattress. The rest of the room is outfitted with a beautiful oak work desk, mahogany nightstands, and one-of-a-kind crystal lamps. Other perks include a pillow menu, the "Make It So" button, HDTV flatscreen televisions, organic coffee and tea, iPod stations, and a full menu of spiritual texts (no simple Gideon Bible for deLuxe guests!).
If you need to relax with a cocktail, order an Elizabeth Taylor (crème de violette and champagne) at the hotel's Driftwood Bar, which was named hotel bar by CitySearch. Famished? Make a reservation at Gracie's, the hotel's elegant restaurant.
Guests that are tempted to leave their luxurious rooms can enjoy Portland by simply walking out the front door into the downtown district, or by catching other city sights via the Max rail line, which has a stop just outside the hotel.
