My honey was quite dubious when I told him I found a hotel in Astoria that we'd be staying at - and we'd be sharing bathroom facilities with other guests.
You see, neither of us has a lot of experience with lodging that includes shared facilities. But, the price was right and the reviews indicated that it was clean and so we went for it.
From the moment we walked in and met Michael who greeted us so warmly and willingly answered our questions about the hotel's history to the awesomely original yet updated rooms, we were taken in.
The location is great, the attached coffee house is also a gem. The people were so nice and the cleanlines so superior that we went from what stared as an unsure experience to a great one that we'd definitely consider doing again.
- 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. Take a ride on the Riverfront Trolley. Take a swim at the Aquatic Center. As our guest, you have access to a curated selection of films available on DVD from the front desk. Watch Goonies in the town where it was filmed. Spend a blustery night curled up with Chinatown or Magnolia.

The Commodore understands the importance of sustainable and Earth-friendly business practices.
