We stayed for two nights. The grounds were beautiful. The view from the room was awesome. Rooms were very clean and nice. We ate breakfast there and the food was excellent. All employees were very helpful and friendly. The only thing we didn't like was the train went by all day and night. We would definitely stay here again but... More

A beautiful cozy restful haven right off the busy freeway. My husband and I spent two nights at this beautiful clean quiet hotel. The view facing the river was spectacular. Laying in our bed we watched the sun rise. Beds are comfortable and the decor of the rooms is restful and cozy. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the... More

This hotel closed a few years ago and reopened not too long ago. John and I stayed fri and sat bites. Everything was great. We arrived a bit early and were accommodated with no problems.we upgraded our room, and it was lovely. Beautiful view of creek, and Columbia River. This is an older hotel, built in the '20's. And it's... More

I have passed this hotel many times and thought it might be fun to stay at, it can only be described as a 'boutique' hotel. It has a lot of historical value and some things have been updated. The room, a river view, was small but adequate. The bathroom up-dated and was clean. There was a hair dryer and refrigerator... More

Being that the hotel is a historic site is interesting but I would not go back. The room overlooked the parking lot and there was a lot of car noise from the freeway. For $159.00, I expect more. There is no coffee pot in the room, which is annoying. The customer service at the front desk and restaurant was dissapointing.... More

Simply put, if you have not stayed at this hotel, it needs to be on your bucket list of places to experience. While the rooms themselves could use a touch of modernization for ease of use purposes, I found the lack of rather almost perfect within the surrounding historic nature of this property. The quite setting overlooking the Columbia River... More

Old relic of a hotel that needs A Lot of care. Brunch, okay, nothing to rave with the exception of carpeting is utterly nasty. Room (half a river room) not worth over $100 a night. Memory foam bed, of which you basically sink. Grounds is very well kept up and again the Hotel is need of some serious maintenance and... More

Overall, the hotel is quite wonderful, a good-old-days feel with the modern amenities. But beware the "garden view" rooms. Mine was a view of the garden of the parking lot across the roof rubble of the gift shop. Traffic sounds from the freeway was a constant through the night and some sort of loud compressor in the building throbbed at... More

Travel back to the grand old days at this beautiful and historical hotel! Grounds are beautiful with a waterfall and great gardens. Great venue for a wedding or big celebration! Tony was playing at Valentino's lounge and dinner at Simon's Cliff House was excellent! We had the scallop capellini and the steelhead and it was superb! Everything was fresh and... More
