Hotels >Hotel Lucia
This stylish hotel has a lot going for it—immaculate modern decor, great service, a super central Broadway Street location with excellent proximity to whatever recreational downtown activities float your boat (be it a Nordstrom shopping spree or throwing dollar bills around Mary's Club), and two stellar new hotel restaurants, Imperial and the Portland Penny Diner.
Great Place to Stay in Portland.
I was in town just a couple days ago to visit with my daughter and she put me up at the Hotel Lucia. What a fun place to stay.
Upon walking in, I felt very welcomed. The staff was friendly and very helpful and when I asked for directions to a store, they immediately pointed me in the right direction.
The room was very comfortable and I thoroughly enjoyed the soft bed. My daughter mentioned that this hotel had some of the best in Portland and I do believe she is right.
While waiting in the lobby for my daughter one morning, I was able to look at the varoius artwork and was amazed at the variety of the pieces. I'm so used to staying in a place with some flat, emotionless picture of a field somewhere and was pleasantly suprised by what I saw.
I am recommending this to all of my friends that travel to Portland or know people that do. If anyone from the hotel reads this, I want to thank you for the friendliness of your fantastic staff. You have some great people working for you.
I stayed there and I thought you should know....
Hotel Lucia, according to its literature, wants to provide a relaxing yet hip hotel experience. And indeed, visiting Portland from Los Angeles, there were many elements of the place that reminded me of home. That's not a good thing.
The place does indeed have a lot of nice amenities: Aveda products, lush bedding, well designed bathrooms. But where Hotel Lucia indeed attempts to make the visitor comfortable, they fall short in the most frustrating, obvious ways. For instance, while they'd sunk a good bit of money into the comfy pillow-top mattress pad, they hadn't thought to get a fitted sheet that fit the bed. What good is an extra-comfortable mattress when a person wakes up with the sheet and felt pad balled up beneath them? The alarm clock (very nice) had a docking station for my ipod yet the wireless was fourteen dollars a day. Even the Portland Airport comes with a free connection. The lobby is nice, but loud and seem to function not only as gathering places but also has a hallway from one major area to another. The room price is not cheap and I was struck (dumbfounded, really) by how small they were. Between the end of the bed and the dresser are a scant couple of feet. The only chair in the room is a stiff high-backed desk chair, which isn't very relaxing (nor hip) to watch the plethora of television channels. The hotel staff was quick to respond to any request. It took minutes for some hypo-allergenic pillows to be sent up to the room. But the pillows were no bigger than the size of my head whereas my companion got huge pillows to lie back on. So all in all, the Hotel Lucia is a lot like people from LA: quick to announce its hipness, confident that it's worth the expensive price, but when you get right down to it, there's not much brains to balance out the showiness. Sadly, I won't be back.
Fans of boutique hotels will swoon for these sleek, stylish downtown digs..
Understated luxury, clean lines and a permanent exhibit of compelling black-and-white photography by Oregon native David Kennerly make this 128-room hotel stand out from the crowd. With many of Portland's sites within walking distance, Lucia is popular with young business travelers looking for comfort and convenience.
Standard rooms are cozy (read: small), so many couples upgrade to the Superior King room. All rooms come with little luxuries like super-soft sheets, extra-plush robes for lounging, Aveda products in all the bathrooms, high-speed Internet access and room service from Typhoon!, the Thai restaurant downstairs.
enjoyed my stay, would return. I was pleasantly suprised at the room and the level of service here. Smallish rooms with lots of flair. I would stay here again. Get the online special rate. "Betty"?
Portland's Hot Spot. Where else in Portland can you get an intimate, comfortable yet urban chic hotel experience where the service is good, the beds are comfy and location convenient? Nowhere! I didn't even mention the artwork/decor and overall room value, which are fantastic.
Yummy. This is the hotel you are looking for--in any city. It has class and elegance without being unfriendly to the ordinary traveler. Great get away spot in a gem of a city!
Portland's ONLY Hotel. I first stayed at Hotel Lucia 2 years ago after they had just opened. I had doubts that my most recent trip this past weekend could top that experience, but boy was I wrong! The rooms, the decor and the staff are all impeccable. The beds are the most comfortable you will ever have the pleasure to sleep on and the decor makes me itch to redecorate my house. The friendly staff is available to provide you with whatever you might need. They even ran to the Rite Aid down the street to get my sick friend some Alka Seltzer as we were checking OUT! From business travelers to couples looking for a romantic escape -- I would highly suggest a stay at Hotel Lucia!
Sweet stay. Spent a nice weekend at the Hotel Lucia as a Birthday Present to my wife, and the beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept in.... while we were in the room we felt as if we were in the most comfortable bedroom ever- yes the rooms may look smaller, but we didn't spend all our free time in the room. My wife and I are very close, so the intimate space felt appropriate. When the staff found out it was a special day they sent up a bottle of bubbly and a note.... very thoughtful and unexpected! Thank you for your attention and thoughtfulness, it mad a special day even better!
Sloppy and unapologetic.
A group of six of us traveled from Seattle to Portland after making reservations a month in advance. Our rooms weren't ready until 6pm. One couple walked into their room only to find other people inside -- it was double booked. The next set of keys didn't work, and they lost their bag for over an hour. Our room reaked of smoke, and we had to move. The room service was lacking: the "over easy" eggs were hard and the oatmeal came with no milk or sugar.
The front desk staff never apologized, so we proceeded to call the manager. He apologized but offered us wine -- even asking us red or white -- that never arrived. Finally, we were given a reduction in room rates, but the $99 final reduced rate was still too high of a price to pay for all the headaches.
The best hotel in town!.
Our 4th visit - we have never been disappointed.
Book one of the junior suites - it is worth the additional costs and additional floor space.
The beds are the best in town with very friendly staff.
