Hotel Lucia in Portland
During a stay at the Hotel Lucia in Portland Oregon, my wife and I enjoyed a great evening in one of the Northwest’s finest hotels.
Checking in was very smooth and the helpful valet pointed out parking options as we arrived in town following a nearly three hour drive through rush hour traffic. The gorgeous lobby greeted us decked in subtle yet eloquent furnishings that blended traditional elegance with modern designs. Our check in was very pleasant and quick, and before long, we were inserting our room key into the elevator for secured access to our floor. The room was very well decorated and came with a flat screen television as well as a spacious bathroom and honor bar.
The room had a great view of the downtown area and we could see the various clubs and restaurants that were adjacent to the hotel.
The cable in the room was good, and included many of our favorites such as the Sci-Fi Channel, Cartoon Network, and Spike. I know it sounds silly, especially on a relaxing trip, but there are times you want to relax to your favorite shows or old favorites, and far too many hotels of late only offer the local stations and a small handful of cable stations.
The bathroom had a large shower as well as a well sized sink and counter area as well as a hair dryer. The room also had ample closet space and very comfy robes available for our use and plenty of drawer and desk space.
The hotel has wireless internet available for a fee as well as a host of features that included 24-hour business center
24-hour fitness center
24-hour room service offering both Thai and American cuisine
Torrefazione coffee and Tazo teas
Aveda bath products
iPod docking stations
Parking – Valet with in-and-out privileges
Turn-down service upon request The Hotel Lucia also offers some amazing artwork for guests and the walls of the hotel are decked out in some of the best black and white photography ever assembled and made me venture down the halls to take in the vast collection.
Check out was very quick, and we were sad to see our stay end, but were happy to discover a new place to stay, and look forward to our next trip.
