Fifteen in the family made reservations for Thanksgiving Day 2015 buffet and all agreed it was the best Thanksgiving we'd enjoyed in many years. Reservations well ahead suggested and there will be no disappointments as far as service, cost, quality and variety of food selections. A meal discount for seniors and a very reasonably priced bottle of wine in the... More

My husband surprised me with a birthday getaway at this historic and beautiful hotel. The staff were very attentive. The grounds are simply beautiful even in winter. It is stunning in spring & summer. In the lobby, they had a nearby winery offering a complimentary tasting and appetizer. We ended up taking advantage of happy hour in the lounge for... More

My wife and stopped over for a night on a long road trip. To our delight and surprise, we discovered this beautiful, well-appointed lodge with rooms overlooking the the gorge and a waterfall right on the property. Food was okay and the service was spotty (although very friendly), but the atmosphere and location of the place more than made up... More

Place was beautifully dressed up for Christmas. Gardens surrounding the place are quaint and romantic, loved how they framed a stunning waterfall that drops into the Gorge. Standard Garden View rooms are not huge (most rooms in this hotel don't seem to be), but very comfortable for a single traveler. The rooms and the property overall have aged well and... More

Every staff member we met was helpful, cheerful, and displayed their pride in the hotel. They shared snippets of the hotel's long history, 1921-Present. The food was excellent.Our room had a comfortable king size beed and views of the Columbia Gorge. The bathroom was clean and modern. The property is still being restored so in some respects is a bit... More

My wife and I went to this hotel for a very special Thanksgiving dinner and were greeted by a condescending, rude individual who, I must say, was consistently rude to all she came upon. We started our welcome with an offer of significant savings which the concierge refused to honor. After some discussion she spoke with someone and decided to... More

The Columbia Gorge Hotel has excellent service, historic charm, and good food. Views on the River View side are worth the extra money. Rm. 339 has a view directly down onto the precipice of the Wah-Gwin-Gwin waterfall. This hotel especially good values in the off-season.

Hi Kent O, You are right the best time of year in the Gorge is the shoulder seasons (Spring & Fall). All the flowers in full bloom in the spring and the fall foliage is as beautiful as any place on the east coast. We hope to see you again soon. More

It takes more today to impress me then when I was younger, and the Columbia Gorge Hotel managed. My wife and I are seasoned road trippers, and while many “cookie cutter” accommodations are pleasant, few match the ambiance and pleasures of a well run historic hotel. The Columbia Gorge is one of the very nicest. Built in 1921, it has... More
