“Best in Oregon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

If you want true luxury, top of the line service, an incredible restaurant, and an amazing spa, look no further. From check-in to sadly checking-out, all aspects of the Allison Spa were exceptional. The valet (complementary), check-in, and bell staff were all delightful.

I stayed with my wife and 9 year old twins. Even though this hotel is more of an adult experience, all of the staff were friendly and very accomodating to my children. The rooms are exceptional and very well appointed.The restaurant Jory is also the best of all of the restaurants that I have dined in the Oregon wine country.

The beautiful surrounding gardens and walkways with sculptures create the icing on the cake for this amazing hotel. Everything from the hotel architecture, interior decorating, and beautiful surrounding gardens create a feeling of serenity.

The Allison Inn is nirvana in the pacific northwest, and will be my only choice for lodging in the northern Oregon wine country. The hotel is even of such quality that it is a destination in itself.

We just got back from celebrating our wedding anniversary at the Allison Inn & Spa. This place never disappoints. The hotel and grounds are gorgeous, the staff are extremely welcoming and helpful, and the spa is stellar. There is not one even mildly negative thing to say about this place. Can't believe how lucky we are it's only 40 minutes from home!

We recently stayed at the Allison Inn & Spa for 3 nights during our 2week roadtrip from Seattle to Los Angeles and we absolutely LOVED it!! From the moment we drove up to the hotel driveway we were blown away. The valet guys greeted us and quickly unloaded our bags to check us in. The grounds were so beautiful and pristine and the inside of the hotel was immaculate. Daniel helped us with our luggage and was very informative, friendly and made us feel very welcome and special as guests of this spectacular hotel. He recommended us taking out one of the complimentary Lexus cars available to the guests of the hotel which we did the next day. We booked the convertible and toured the Williamette vineyard area for 4hours.
Our room was on the terrace level facing the vineyards and the view was awesome as we enjoyed having morning coffee on our balcony before breakfast. The room was very spacious and impeccably clean. It had free wi-fi, healthy snacks(yummy), filtered water, in room safe, bath robes, fireplace and very, very comfy beds. We simply loved it.
All the staff we met were so super friendly and helpful and we can't say enough about the service received. And the food at the Jory was delicious.
This hotel is definitely one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed at. If you're ever in the Portland area and want to experience a true 5 star hotel, this is the place.

Green Features: This is a LEED certified hotel. We loved the cute little glass bottles with filtered water in our room. They even gave us one to take home when we checked out.

The Allison is a 5 star hotel and spa set in the beautiful northern region of the Willamette Valley about 20 miles southwest from Portland. Wonderful grounds and gardens, very spacious rooms with every amenity, a wonderful spa, restaurant, pool and helpful staff. Knowledgeable staff will direct you to the best local wineries and even keep your wine purchases in a "chill room" until your departure. The Allison is a the best way to settle into all that the Willamette Valley has to offer.

Room Tip: As for a room facing the vineyards and if available, one with a small terrace.

Green Features: The Allison is very environmentally friendly. Solar panels, low flow water use, environmental laundry practices, etc.

My wife wanted to spend her 40th birthday in the Oregon wine country, and my objective was to find her the perfect place to enjoy her special day. I first discovered The Allison in the Fodor’s Oregon travel guide, then read the reviews on Trip Advisor. As we all do, I paid special attention to the negative reviews. Since the cost of The Allison is well beyond what I would normally spend for lodging, I wanted to feel some degree of reasonable assurance that my wife and I would enjoy the experience and avoid any cognitive dissonance caused by unfulfilled expectations. Most of the negativity I read about The Allison in the reviews related to the cost vs. perceived value, but the actual issues people brought up seemed a little picky and immaterial, so I went ahead and booked the stay…and I am so delighted that I did!

From the time you see The Allison emerge while driving towards it, you get the sense that it is going to be a special experience, and this holds true from the time you arrive through your entire stay. Everyone on the staff, from the valets to the front desk to the spa and beyond, demonstrates a deep appreciation and understanding of true hospitality – something that has become increasingly rare in the “hospitality” industry. We had a penthouse grand deluxe king, and it was spacious, well-appointed, and wonderfully decorated. They have given so much thought to the details – the bathtub is extra-long so you can enjoy a good soak without having your legs bent and out of the water; snacks and water in the room; comfortable robes and slippers; ultra-comfortable beds and bedding; the lovely gas fireplace; and the list goes on and on. The room was so comfortable, we found it challenging to find the motivation to leave for wine tastings….but we did. ;)

The one thing about the room that I would say is a little disappointing is the lack of a scenic view. The vineyard side faces a very small vineyard (more like a large garden) on a steep slope which limits the range of your view while the valley side faces the road and some industrial buildings which are not very pleasing. Overall, I would say the valley side is preferable for its expansive view. In truth, the room itself is so spectacular, you won't be too concerned about what is outside of the window.

On the morning of her birthday, my wife had a Mimosa massage at the spa. She was absolutely delighted with the service. While she was getting her massage, I used the fitness facility. This is the one area where I would consider The Allison to be just average – I workout 4 to 6 times per week with weights as well as cardio, and I have seen hotel gyms range from extensive to awful, and this gym falls somewhere in the middle. They have some cardio equipment, a small circuit of weight machines, a single adjustable bench, dumbbells to 50 pounds, and 2 versatile cable machines. I pieced together a couple of workouts during our stay, but it is clear that The Allison is for relaxation, not intense exertion…and I was just fine with that!

Prior to her massage, we had breakfast delivered to our room, and it was delicious! I had the Vintner’s Breakfast, which consisted of assorted pastries and a parfait, while my wife enjoyed eggs, toast, and bacon -- well…I enjoyed most of her bacon. :) It was all well-prepared, well-presented, and well-consumed!

We have been back from our Oregon adventure for two weeks, and we still talk about and miss being at The Allison. Before we even checked out, we were already planning our return! If you are reading this review and weighing your options about where to stay in the Willamette Valley, do yourself a favor and choose The Allison…then YOU can one day have great memories of it, too!

Thank you for your review - it provides an incredibly helpful summation of the challenge all travelers go through when deciding how to spend the money earned from one's hard work. It is terribly nerve racking - a vacation is one of the most important experiences a person can have! Your thoughtful and detailed review will certainly alleviate people's concerns, and answer many questions, in regards to whether it was worth it. Thank you!

We are very proud of our Oregon hospitality. In a time where hospitality is less about the guest, and more about the bottom line, it's important our guests understand they come first, and any opportunity to make your stay better will come naturally to us. We look to the classic experience of hospitality, while being genuine and unpretentious. We truly appreciate when someone takes the time to write about it.

Thank you, and we await your return. Cheers, and we hope this finds you well!

Sincerely,
Michael | Online Concierge

This is a very special place. The design, rooms, setting and service are beyond 5 star, and at this level the room rates even in summer are really a value. DO NOT MISS THIS PLACE if you are in Portland or anywhere nearby. The Jory Restaurant in the hotel is also superb. The service is second to none without being pretentious in any way. There is nothing but great things to say about Allison Inn.

I can't say enough nice things about the Allison.

My husband and I stayed here on a romantic weekend getaway once, with breakfast in bed and a delightful dinner with live music by Halie Loren.
The food is outstanding, the service is incredible and the whole building is breathtaking.

I love that they are so "green" that there isn't a single plastic container or thing in the entire hotel. Everything is ceramic or porcelain or glass. The roof in one of the buildings has plants on top :-)

We've been here as overnight guests and we've also headed down to the Allison just to hear the live music on Fridays and Saturdays while we enjoy a couple of drinks by their beautiful fireplace.

We haven't been to the spa but we took the tour and if the service is nearly as good as it looks it has to be incredible! I can't wait to try it out.

Green Features: I love that they are so environmentally friendly. The 'only' thing I would tell you to be careful with are the shelves inside the shower. They are made of glass and have sharp corners.

Thank you very much! We are very thankful for the performers that grace our living room, and appreciative you brought that up! In our living room, off our lobby and check-in, we have a local winery visit on Thursday nights, for an educational wine tasting with a "celebrity" wine maker. The music is on Fridays and Saturdays, and is typically a jazz vocalist, or trio. Make sure to check out our events calendar on our website, because musicians and days vary. But it's open to the public as well as guests - please come by! If not to explore our hotel for the first time, to enjoy talented musicians, while enjoying a glass of wine!

We also love talking about how green our hotel is (LEED Gold), without it impacting the guest experience in any way. The living roof is just one exceptional part of all our initiatives, but thought has been given to every aspect of not only the building, but operations as well. We believe we are leading the industry in this regard, and will continue to innovate and implement new ideas and technology as it becomes available. Thank you for recognizing it!

We enjoyed your review very much, and we can't wait to have *you* back. Thank you, cheers, and we hope this finds you well!
