Hotel deLuxe


The deLuxe nails the city-hotel trifecta. It's utterly carless, just steps from downtown and a train ride from the airport. It has a buzzy bar, the Driftwood Room, which is "a Portland institution." And the service rises above the snap-to-attention business hotel m.o. to be warm and personal ("we weren't greeted by name after check-in, but our greyhound, Mini, was"). A recent redo of the bar smartly didn't touch the "dark, clubby interior" but revamped the cocktail list, and movies are screened on the roof in the summer. To really feel like an insider, ask for a room that ends in "30" or "03"–they have the best views. $139/$169; 145 rooms & suites;
