We did a loop from Portland to Mt. Hood with a stop at Timberline Lodge( great spot) and then on to Hood River for a stay at Columbia Gorge. Room was very elegant and price not exorbitant( $200). View and the grounds are very attractive with a waterfall right off the back of the hotel. Dinner was very good and... More

Enjoyed a 5 night stay at the Columbia Gorge Hotel. Although the room was on the small size it was more than serviceable and had an updated bathroom. The river view more than made up for any shortfalls of the room. Stayed in room 338 which was directly above the falls and enjoyed the sound. The grounds of the hotel... More

The feeling you get when you first walk in is the feeling of going back in time (Ina good way). I am a fanatic of old historic hotels, renovated and all. The room was large and beautiful. We had a room that overlooked the river, it was breath taking. I simply wish some of the windows were larger so we... More

Stayed in Cascade Locks OR, but drove another 15 miles east to see this historic and picturesque hotel - and decided to have a late breakfast here, too. Few people in the dining room, and unlike other places, the Columbia Gorge hotel does serve other people, other than guests of the hotel. Enjoyed fresh and tasty coffee, fruit and a... More

Enjoy some history, beauty and lots of things to do in this historic hotel in Hood River, Oregon. The restaurant is "ok" but the real draw is the amazing setting on the Columbia River.

Definitely find a time to visit this historical landmark in the Columbia River Gorge. There is history, beauty and great rooms! The facility has been remodeled but this history is still there in the replica chandeliers and the slatted doors to the rooms useful at a time in history when there was no air conditioning. We visited the widow's walk... More

A well preserved facility with beautiful views of river, gardens and water features.Our rooms were on the garden side and since the windows are original to the building, the noise from the freeway, which is VERY close, comes right into the room.

Lovely 1920's hotel on a cliff overlooking the Columbia river. It's old and misses a few mod cons but this hotel is classic in its design and full of character. Front of house were very friendly. Bar and outside terrace were good. The restaurant was not good. Our food, steak and chicken ,was dry and overdone and in the case... More

Very sad experience for us. Room was on the third floor facing the river, which we thought would be quiet, but the trail ran through every hour all night and we basically never slept. The foot rail on the bed protruded 8" or so into the room and we hit our hips on it every time we walked around the... More
