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

This is a historic hotel with a modern flair. The decor throughout the halls and dinning areas takes you back to the 1800's while the rooms are very well updated with some antique furniture. We had rm 331 and by far it was perfect! It overlooked the waterfall and the Columbia River. We ate breakfast at the hotel restaurant and... More

The Columbia Gorge Hotel is situated in a simply stunning setting. Beautiful grounds with a stream flowing through, a 200 foot waterfall at the immediate rear of the property and views of the Columbia from the main dining area as well as the river-facing rooms. Drinks and dinner were both great ( amazing scallops) and the servers in all cases... More

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
