So what part of "Historic Hotel" did the negative reviewers not understand? This old lady has had her makeup and finery spruced up and she's ready for entertaining! The room functioned well, the bathroom was very updated, the bed was super comfortable, the river view was wonderful. The elevator must be operated by staff, like in the old days; very... More

This hotel dates back to the 1920's but was recently renovated. It sits 200 feet above the Columbia River with its own waterfall. A lovely place! The grounds are immaculate and full of flowers. We walked along the river cliff and watched a huge group of wind surfers below. We stopped for a quick bite in Simon's Cliff House. Our... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for a night before going skiing at Mt. Hood, and it was wonderful. The staff was incredibly friendly and the rooms are very nice. The beds were memory foam and we slept great. The setting is very pretty being right on the Columbia river. If you get a chance take hwy 35 toward government... More

We spent a memorable night at the Columbia Gorge Hotel in Hood River, OR, recently to celebrate our 9th Anniversary. The grounds were beautifully decorated for the Christmas Season. We were treated like royalty from the moment we opened the door. The entire staff were friendly, professional and courteous and seemed to enjoy going out of their way to make... More

In the afternoon we got a recommendation to stay here on our way from Portland to Bend. They were very friendly and helpful from the first phone call. Everything was just as they said and ready for us. We liked the old building and its history. The staff was lovely and helpful and terrific. The building does have some odd... More

We have stayed all over hood river and the hardest decision we make is whether to stay here or at the best western ( yes, the best western...hot tub on the river hard to beat) BUT, I have to say that the charm, history, decor and just everything about this property is so perfectly memorable that's it takes the prize....

We spent 2 nights in the River view room (great view and fireplace). I'm grateful we did because the smaller rooms are "small". The bathroom was updated and the room was clean. The Hotel was built in the 1920's so it has some quirky features associated with that time period. The elevator needs an operator to run.... the building has... More

We stayed here with our adult granddaughter because she has to travel with her 2 small dogs. We were greeted with a welcome note for the dogs along with snacks and toys. Santa was there for pics with your dogs. We were in an outside entrance probably so any barking might be minimal to other guests. The room was clean... More

The hotel smells like my great grandmother's house and looks like it too! When we tried to get on the elevator to our room, the receptionist says "the staff are the only ones who can operate the elevator. I can help you up or you can take the stairs!" We chose to take the stairs ... But what hotel doesn't... More

My wife and I had not stayed in this historic hotel for about 20 years and wondered if it would be up to the standard of our wonderful memories of our last stay here. We were not disappointed! The location is beautiful with sweeping views across the Columbia River and interesting and nicely designed landscaping, even in the late fall.... More
