“Great Couples Get-Away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

My husband and I were able to leave our kids with my parents and have a night away. Snoqualmie was a good distance away and Salish Lodge was a wonderful place to go.

We ate at the Attic. It was a little pricey but we took advantage of not having to drive home and the cocktails were excellent.

We didn't use the spa. I wanted to use the soaking tubs and steam room but the jetted tub in the room was so nice, I didn't want to leave it.

I lived in the area a few years back and frequented The Attic for happy hour. We always wanted to come back and stay at the Salish, and I'm so glad we did! We were in town on the hottest weekend of the year (96!), and the Salish was like an oasis. The AC in the room was fantastic. We paid a bit extra for a view of the falls, which was well worth it. Yes, there was some construction at the time but not noisy or invasive at all and kinda interesting to watch from our balcony! The spas are wonderful, and I LOVED the fresh cucumber water. The staff was very friendly. I left my swimsuit in the room and they mailed it to me, no problem. I was a bit disappointed in the menu at the Attic... too little options and menu seems to have changed. Also, we got a great rate thru AAA. The room was lovely, and I loved the jet tub and bathroom "window". We had a wood-burning fireplace but didn't use it.

Room Tip: Ask for upper-level, with view of falls/river

My husband and I stayed at the salish lodge for our 2nd anniversary and it was more then we ever expected. We had such an enjoyable relaxing time and all the staff were fantastic.
Once we checked in we took a dip in the soaking pool up on the fourth floor and then straight for our fireside couples massage in a lodge bedroom like setting. The Massages were great and the fireplace and dimmed lighting in the room was just what we had in mind for a cozy romantic massage.
We stayed in one of the river view rooms with a great view if the falls. The in- room fireplace was the perfect touch to our romantic evening. We really enjoyed the changing lights and massage settings in the jacuzzi as well. I ordered the rosemary and mint bath butler as well as roses and candles to be put in my room.
Dinner in the dinning room was amazing! The salmon was perfectly cooked and presented. The server presented us with a happy anniversary desert plate with ice cream and sherbet. After dinner we arrived back to our room to see the petals and candles beautifully placed around our room. Everything was stunning and we can't wait to go back. Thank you Salish staff for making our special day so memorable.

We've stayed here before years ago, but it seems things have gone downhill. To begin with, we were checked into a room, and once we got there and were relaxing, another person was given the same key and came into our room! The front desk called and said they had no record of us checking in!! Yikes. We asked to be moved, but rather than that they comp'd us a bottle of wine.

When we checked out, we had to wait to find the person who brought the car around which just added frustration.

To top it all off, they seem to have billed us twice, or probably billed us for our room, and whoever was trying to get into our room..

All in all, a great location, but the hotel has totally messed up systems.

Room Tip: Wait until the fix their systems or management before trying again.

We've stayed at the Salish before, but we hadn't been for quite a while. The pluses- beautiful setting, nicely appointed rooms with the signature whirlpool tubs, and the spa. The massage at the spa was excellent. The minuses- some features of the room are looking tired such as rust marks on the bathroom ceiling, bubbles in the paint in the bathroom from a leak sometime in the past, slightly tired pillows. Cheap coffee mate packets sit next to the Keurig coffee maker. You see what I mean? It's got a beautiful coffee maker system and top quality coffee and cheap coffee mate to put in it. I am trying to remember exactly, but I think they had separate potential charges for specialized pillows, bath butler preparations, resort fees, ect. The restaurant is nice, but quite expensive. One strange practice: the room service menu is now on the television, so you have to turn the tv on and get real close to it to review the menu. This is strange and not in any way luxurious. All and all, it's a nice place to stay, but when I want to splurge, this would probably not be my go-to place.

My Christmas present from my husband was a night at the Salish Lodge as we had never been. We got there right at 4, check in time and our room wasn't ready. There were quite a few of us waiting for rooms. We had to sit in the lobby for a half hour.

The room itself was gorgeous, comfortable, attractive furnishings, big tub and a view of the river. We left to go a restaurant in town where we had a reservation but before we left noticed that I had forgotten to pack a needed piece of medical equipment.

We went to our dinner, then my husband had to drive all the way back home to get it (45 minutes each way). While that was nobody's fault but our own, that in combination with getting our room late made it pretty much a wasted day.

When we got back to our room, the blinds had been drawn and the radio was playing background water noise. A lovely turn down service we were not expecting so it almost felt like a violation.

We got up in the morning and took a bath in the giant tub. The bed was like sleeping on clouds. Now that it was daylight we could see the view, which was a hydroelectric plant out one window and the water out of the other.

We didn't see one child the whole time, which was great since this was a romantic getaway for us.

Would love to go back some day. The valet service was stellar.

Room Tip: We were in room 308, which had a view of the plant, you need to ask for a room that has more of a wa...

We had a lovely time at Salish Lodge for our wedding anniversary. Our river view room with fireplace, large whirlpool tub was a great space to spend a romantic weekend. The proximity to the falls was amazing, for the views from the hotel but also being able to hike down to the base of the falls. We enjoyed the bath butler service for our tub (although we were brought the wrong bath butler assortment) and found the room service staff to be quite helpful (we had a leftover pizza from the Attic that we wanted to eat for lunch, and room service heated it up for us and brought it back to our room). Massages at the spa were top notch and having access to the Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna etc was a nice treat that we made good use of. The best meal of the stay was dinner in the Dining Room where we had the best seat in the house - next to the roaring fire. The staff brought us out a complimentary dish of sorbet for our anniversary which was a nice touch. My only complaint about the weekend was the wedding parties that were there - TWICE during the advertised tea/cookie hour we were intertupted by wedding parties who told us in no uncertain terms that we needed to leave so they could take photos. Especially since this tea service is only for one hour, and it's included in the *additional* daily resort fee that one *must* pay -- I felt like this was truly unfair and inconsiderate to guests paying to stay at the resort. There isn't much common space at the lodge, so getting kicked out of the one common space felt rather rude.

Room Tip: The river view rooms are beautiful!
