Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

Bottom Line

If channeling James Cagney or Bette Davis while sipping an Old Fashioned is on your bucket list, consider the Hotel deLuxe. Decor at this upscale, 130-room boutique is inspired by the Golden Era of Hollywood, where Art Deco lamps, black-and-white photographs, and heavy drapes meet modern luxuries such as flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. Even the key cards scream Tinseltown. Rooms have a vintage style that is cheerful rather than sultry, with plush beds and a color scheme of lively, bright pastels. But they're fairly small (especially the miniscule bathrooms).

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the Goose Hollow neighborhood just outside Downtown Portland

Hotel deLuxe isn't quite as central as competitors such as Hotel Monaco -- it's a bit to the east of the popular Pearl District -- but the Pearl District and Portland's Waterfront are still within walking distance. Portland is very pedestrian-friendly and is known as one of the best cycling cities in the country, so visitors should take advantage of the car-free settings.

Downtown Portland is the heart of the city, and is centered around the lively Pioneer Square. It's also home to multiple museums, urban parks, and residential condominiums. Portland State University borders Downtown to the south.

Forest Park, 5,000 acres of pure nature, can be found on the northwest hills of Downtown Portland. It's one of the nation's largest urban parks, and has plenty of biking and hiking trails for adventurous travelers.

  • 20-minute drive to Portland International Airport
  • 7-minute drive from the Portland Japanese Garden
  • 16-minute drive to Coalition Brewery, a prominent Portland brewery
  • 9-minute walk from the Portland Art Museum
  • 10-minute walk to Pioneer Courthouse Square's shopping and cafes
  • 19-minute walk to "First Thursday" starting place, a guided gallery tour
  • 90-minute drive from skiing at Mt. Hood
