The Commodore is certainly well situated within Astoria - right in the centre of the downtown. The views are lovely (bridge, waterfront, river), and the staff are very helpful and welcoming. The renovation is great - everything looks good, even the hallways. Our suite was a nice size, with a comfortable bed, sofa/table, two big windows, ipod player, etc. However, the room really does not include any extras - coffee, real glasses (plastic only), local information, etc. None of this is absolutely necessary, but for the price, it would have been nice. As others have mentioned, the location really is noisy. There are two major roads nearby, one on either side of the hotel. All seems quiet in the first part of the night, but the heavy truck traffic starts very early in the morning. Double-paned windows would probably help a lot.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the heart of the Astoria Downtown Historic District, the Commodore Hotel occupies the 1925 Lewis Building, designed by John E. Wicks, Astoria's most influential architect. The hotel operated from 1925 until 1968, first as the Barton Inn Hotel and then as the Commodore. Shuttered for 40 years, the Commodore reopened in 2009 after an extraordinary renovation. Retaining the original doors, windows, woodwork, and fixtures-all meticulously rehabilitated-the Commodore is now a shining example of the highest standards of contemporary design and construction. The Commodore shares the historic Lewis Building with the legendary Street 14 Coffee, which you can enter directly from the lobby. Downtown Astoria is overflowing with sensory delights-dining, shopping, hiking and more are at your fingertips. Take a romantic stroll along the scenic Riverwalk.
