We spent four nights at the Peerless Hotel on our first visit to Ashland to catch plays at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The half-dozen rooms are quite comfortable with very nice touches and high-end amenities. Nothing bland or cookie-cutter here. Multi-channel cable audio in each room, but no televisions (which is fine, as the vibe at the Peerless is more B&B than faceless commercial hotel; we had room #5, which is large). The breakfasts, included in the price during high- and mid-season, are table-service and very good, served at the same restaurant adjacent that has an excellent dinner menu. We were so close to OSF, we didn't move our car the entire time, as it was an easy ten minute to the theaters and exploring the compact downtown Ashland area. Consider a flashlight for nighttime return walks, though.
