Luxury Hotels: In Portland, Oregon being hip is a way of life for the locals; their haute couture fashion showcased daily. You see them walking down SW Broadway in their vintage 1960s-inspired dresses, black, brown, and white Ray-Bans and entering record stores with their tattooed arms and body parts in search of the newest indie band. So it's no wonder in a city where style is everything, the Hotel Lucia is amongst Travel & Leisure's 500 list as a sexy, hip, and modern hotel.
