Columbia Gorge Hotel is a historic and charming place to stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. The rooms are comfortable and the restaurant has excellent food and service. It is a lovely spot overlooking the River; an ideal place for a wedding or anniversary.

Way to expensive for what we received. Room was very small. We had a wonderful view but the windows were dirty. Spiders and cobwebs all over the exterior of the building and windows. We even had spiders and cobwebs in the corners of the bathroom above the shower. Could be such a wonderful place if only they would power wash.

This is a historic hotel. The owners have done an excellent job of updating and maintaining it. The hotel has a lot of charm, and the staff is very helpful. You have to "ring" for the elevator, but they are very prompt. We stayed in a river view room, and the view was wonderful. As noted in other reviews, the... More

I was greeted warmly and with a gift bag. The steward escorted me up in an old, lovely, elevator. My room was a perfect blend of antique style and plush luxury. The California King bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept on. The breeze through the windows and soothing trickle of the many water features on the property,... More

In our 2 day visit, the tv broke, there was no screen on our river view window so we couldn't leave the window open at night due to bugs (they acknowledged it broke a while back and they never replaced), (they declined to credit our account for both nights for the $20 difference vs a park view due to the...

Lovely historic hotel loaded with fabulous antiques. The working original elevator is a treat! We stayed a week. The food was delicious. The grounds are beautiful, well maintained and accessible to guests. Unfortunately, some glitch with the card key system meant that we had to get our card re-keyed each day. Agree with the other reviewer about noisy highway side.... More

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
