4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our original allocated room was at the front but since they built the Interstate nearby I paid for an upgrade to a quieter room. We stayed in room 339 that was very spacious and serviced, with a beautiful view over the Columbia River. I could still hear the traffic a little and the waterfall outside the room but it was...

This is a beautiful old hotel with perhaps one of the best views of the Columbia River Gorge that one could imagine. It even has it's own waterfall as part of the well-groomed property. Great food in the dining room was an unexpected bonus. It was nice to be able to enjoy this place without worrying about finding a better... More

If you love history but want modern amenities, the Columbia Gorge Hotel is for you. Immaculate, updated rooms, but the "feel" of the history of the hotel is still there; quite an accomplishment. The views of the Columbia are spectacular, the falls are right on-site, and watching the wind surfers is relaxing. The grounds are gorgeous and the staff are... More

It's a beautiful and historic hotel overlooking the scenic Columbia Gorge. Staff seems nice and helpful. The almost 100 year old hotel resurrected some years ago, feels like you're in another world, another time with the antique furniture, interior decoration, and architecture. It definitely has a romantic feel to it. High season rates are a bit high at around $260;... More

I stayed for one night during a week long trek through Oregon. This is an old world place with a terrific location on the water. I was able to get the room right over the water fall so I heard the water falling all night which as delightful. The sound of traffic from the Interstate was unfortunately pretty loud. They... More

The Columbia Gorge Hotel lived up to its billing as a historic hotel with an exceptional view of the Columbia River. We enjoy staying in historic old hotels in spectacular settings and we were not disappointed. Our room was beautifully furnished and reasonably spacious. We had a fireplace and a view of river, although the windows were small. The room... More

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights here. It is an historic hotel in a beautiful setting above a waterfall overlooking the river surrounded by nice gardens. The hotel has a lot of charm and what we thought of as charecter but I can see why some people would not like it. We particularly like older places but this... More

The grounds were beautiful and well kept. We could hear the falls from our room. Beds comfortable. We ate breakfast in restaurant at corner table in early morning sunlight. The food was all wonderful and the presentation was beautiful. Look forward to returning.

Stunning building and grounds overlooking the Columbia River. This was a Hollywood hang out in the 1920's and 30's. The grounds are a garden paradise. Plantings, a stream, waterfalls, wildlife and visual vignette. There is a lovely stone patio for the bar overlooking both river and grounds. The restaurant's food was good and our server knowledgeable. In some ways it... More

I took my elderly mother for her birthday. The staff were professional, courteous, and helpful. The room was easily accessible for her and very relaxing. The grounds were accessible to her also and we really enjoyed sitting on the swinging bench and watching the sun set. We both really enjoyed ourselves.
