“Where modern art and tradition collide with 1925 is where Peaceful rest, calm interior, and travel meet!”
We stayed at the Commodore . We and really loved it. Joshua at the front desk was very helpful, and personable with our questions, concerns and undecided dinner plans. The 1925 building had been closed in 1965, and reopened and restored in 1998 by the three owners. There are pictures through out the hotel of actual scenes from the moment it reopened. No one knows why the original owner that closed it down in 1965 left everything behind., There was clothes,magazines, beds and furniture left in every room.
The remodel is incredible , and the dark wood floors, stairways, and rooms all reflect a nice old fashion modern day flare. The rooms are warm, wifi throughout the hotel and coffee shop that is joined with it. The coffee shop is open until 6pm, it is called Street 14 coffee. I had an Americana with whip cream upon arrival , but ended up sleeping for two hours the moment I laid on my bed which has really nice pure white comforter and 2 soft pillows that were heaven sent in my room. The showers have the larger water fall sprout and includes the towels for shower to face , with shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. If you are wanting a blow drier the front desk will get one for you.
I love the art mosaic in the lobby , it is above a real fireplace, and has books, rocks,particles from here and there, and the books actually can be removed , so you can sit by the large sitting area , that is cozy and open spaced , read a book , listen to the music that is not to loud or disturbing, or jump on your lap top while sipping a mocha, tea or water. It is also a great place to visit other guests , workers or just finish some needed paper work.
We took one of Joshua's suggestions and went to the Colombian Theater, and had pizza from Voo Doo, while watching a not so good film but the pizza was good . ( kind of wish it had pizza sauce on it) We ordered the number 8, and it was okay but think it lacked with taste and did not care to much for the pizza crust. Since it was Sunday night, there was not a lot of stores or restaurants open. But they do have another theater over toward Safeway that has regular movies showing.
We both love Astoria, and this is our third visit here. Out of all the places we have stayed at when visiting Astoria , Commodore hotel is number 1 in our books. It is safe, clean , friendly and really does help to have staff members like Joshua to make it extra enjoyable while visiting a place ,away from home.
Thanks to everyone in the Coffee Shop and Commodore , for a wonderful welcoming and peaceful stay. We will be back soon.
Sincerely , Jen
I am not sure why there was complaints on the noise from the roads, because I slept until 9am. I had...
