Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel deLuxe Portland
1930's Hollywood Glamour in 21st century Portland
What a great experience we had while visiting Portland. The hotel was amazing! I absolutely loved the decor. Our room wasn't large, but it didn't need to be. The bed was so comfortable, especially after a long day of walking around town. The shower was also wonderful; I loved the subway tile and the rain shower head. The staff was brand new, but so helpful and knowledgeable. They went above and beyond -- answering all of my questions about Portland and giving great walking and driving directions. Annie Cooper at Guest Services was especially helpfully. The hotel is conveniently located, we did not need our car once, we just walked out the front door and started exploring the city. If you prefer to stay inside they have cool flat screen tv's and ipod docking stations. They will even lend you an ipod if you forgot yours at home.
Thank You-- I will definitely stay there next time I visit Portland.
Great opening of grand hotel
We stayed at the new Hotel Deluxe (formerly the Mallory) the first three nights it was open in May. The decor, ambiance, and service were all wonderful. While things were a little hectic the first few nights, the staff made every effort to accomodate us and make us comfortable. Our standard queen room wasn't large, but the floor to ceiling drapes, large windows and light airy colors made it feel expansive. The ipod dock was a very nice touch, allowing us to listen to our own music (they also have preprogrammed ipods if you don' have one). The HDTV wasn't working yet, but they had cable service installed so that we could watch TV on the great flat screen TV. The location, a few blocks from Portland's center, was not an issue at all - in 5 minutes we could be in the Pearl or downtown or on the streetcar up to the 21st/23rd sections of NW. The only thing I would've changed would be to have better lighting in the bathroom, which was otherwise very nice (full tub, good shower pressure, nice toiletries). Overall, a deal for $129/nt (may have been promotional rate).
PS-Highly recommend Everett St. Bistro in the Pearl for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (around Everett St. & NW 12th)
Any concerns we may have had about this Hotel were washed away via the actual experience. We were comfortable and the staff was friendly and very polite. We can recommend it, providing the new owners maintain the ambiance and price levels. The convencience to public transport and downtown cannot be beat.
Wonderful old hotel that has been kept up beautifully. The attention to detail was top notch. Although my room was a bit small, it had everything I needed. Public spaces are charming. I would definitely stay there again.
Excellent classic hotel in the heart of Portland
As a Portland resident, I have learned quite a bit about the various hotel options here in town over the years. My wife and I recently recommended the Mallory Hotel for out-of-town guests attending our June 2004 wedding. The Mallory is hands down the best hotel deal here in Portland - they have beautifully restored this old classic hotel, and they offer extremely reasonable room rates (breakfast is included). The hotel is right on the MAX light rail line, and it's within walking distance of all of Portland's downtown sights. They also offer free secure parking for rental cars as well. All of our out-of-town guests (without exception) raved about this hotel after their stay. We spent a night there as well during our wedding weekend, and loved it! I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting the Rose City.
Enjoyed the comfortable vintage charm!
We enjoyed our unexpected stay at the Mallory Hotel and would definitely return. The description in the travel books left me with the impression that this was a historic hotel with classic grandeur, which let me to interpret it as sort of stuffy and dusty place. Instead, we found the hotel to be relaxed, comfortable, well maintained with a vintage charm, and reasonable in price. We also received a complimentary continental breakfast, or a voucher to use towards their breakfast menu. I enjoyed their surprisingly delicious banana bread french toast.
When visiting Portland, make sure to give yourself a couple of hours to browse in Powell's City of Books. Amazing! We also shopped downtown and in Nob Hill and Hawthorne neighborhoods. Taqueria Nueve, a nouveau mexican restaurant near the Hawthorne neighborhhod, was also delicious.
Room reeked of cigarette smoke
They recently converted the second floor from smoking to nonsmoking and in spite of new furnishings and paint, the room we stayed in reeked of cigarette smoke. When I complained to the manager, she said she couldn't guarantee a nonsmoking room anywhere in the hotel. The hotel may be historic, lovely, and all that jazz, but if you're a nonsmoker, you should think about staying somewhere else.
Excellent Portland Hotel!
What an excellent experience! I just returned home from staying at the Mallory for three nights. The staff is excellent and anticipates your every need before you need to ask. Rooms are simple, clean, quiet and air conditioned. The dining room is the same.
The location is within walking distance of downtown shopping, yet not in a busy location. One more note...Boyds coffee is just down the street.
Best place to stay in Portland
We stumbled upon the Mallory by accident which turned out to be an excellent hotel to stay at. The hotel lobby is breathtaking when you walk in. This is not a hotel for those who are use to staying at chain hotels. This hotel is for those who appreciate it the era it was built and renovated in. It is old but well maintained for its age. The rooms are spotless, quaint and very quiet. The ceilings are high and I loved the huge walk in closets. They have a cool lounge and nice restaurant.
Hotel offers free parking at their lot across the street. I loved the hotel, it had so much character and the staff were very helpful in giving us the ins and outs on the city. I would strongly recommend this hotel and i can't wait to stay there again!
A good deal
My husband and I stayed at the Mallory for 4 nights this July 2002. It was clean, quiet and a good deal for the money. It's an older building, but they have updated everything except maybe the bathrooms. But I thought it was charming and a good deal for the price we paid. It's right on the streetcar line and you can walk to downtown. The breakfasts in the busy restaurant were fine. You can also add a side order to fill out what continental breakfast they supplied. What a relief to not stay in a chain hotel like Marriott or Holiday Inn. One downfall: there are no hair dryers in the rooms. The desk will let you borrow one, but people don't return them promptly. Bring your own.

We were determined to make the most of our full day in Portland, and to explore as much of the city as possible.
We started by getting the tram up to the park to visit the Rose garden and the Japanese garden. As we stepped off the tram, it immediately started chucking it down with rain. At this stage, we didn't realise it was to become a …
Today was our first day with a relatively long drive - 220ish miles down the US101. We started the day with a bit more of a stroll and explore of Lake Quinault. It was again overcast - it seemed like a really nice place but felt like it needed a glorious day to really stand out.
We hit the road relatively early (for us!), and picked up a …
... She had to reverse backwards to where we had come from and wait for the next traffic lights before attempting the turn again....luckily the police car drove past after the event! Our nights were spent with Gay and Bob over a few glasses of wine and the endless supply of nibbles we had stocked up on. By the third night re defrosted dip and olives lose their appeal. Tomorrow, provided we can fit all the cases in, it is off to ...
... Not bad for a day’s work. We got back in the car just as a tour bus was pulling in and I was glad we had missed the crowd. We went a short ways further and made one more stop, although not for a waterfall. We pulled into Vista House at Crown Point State Scenic Corridor. From here, we had wonderful views up and down the Columbia River Gorge, particularly by heading up to the balcony on the upper floor of Vista ...
... the Aerial Tram above the city and could see Mt Hood one direction and Mt St. Helens the other way. It was beautiful and everyone always loves the excitement of a gondola ride. After dinner we watched the movie "Goonies". This was a childhood favourite of Aimee's and tomorrow we were going to Astoria where the movie was filmed. The boys loved the movie and were all psyched to see the "goondocks" the next day!
