We stayed 4 nights in a very spacious suite, room 202, with a private balcony about 8x8 that easily contained a table and four chairs. The furnishings and carpeting all appear new, and were in a sophisticated nuetral palette that was very attractive. The kitchen has only a mini fridge and microwave, but does have a sink and counter and cupboards. The separate reasonably spacious bedroom had it's own flat screen tv and temperature control. The bedding was first rate and the mattress very comfortable. Our room was on the end with a big window in the bedroom that did open, but cooking smells from the restaurant downstairs meant we left the window closed. We did hear freight trains in the distance at night, so light sleepers might be annoyed, but I suspect all hotels in Bend may hear the trains, as the tracks seem to circle outside of the town. The view of the river is rather distant, and not what I imagined at all. Our view was almost 100% obscured by the smokestacks in the repurposed all mill below the hill, that marks the upscale and very convenient Old Mill District shops and restaurants. It was disappointing initially, but interesting in it's own way. The restaurant is average at best, especially for vegans and vegetarians. Canned fruit for breakfast buffet, no non-diary milk choices, and oatmeal served with fruit cut up days and days ago, that had turned sour. (it was replaced with apologies with truly fresh strawberries, but with canned blueberries!) The restaurant is open to the lobby, so the smell of bacon permeates the main floor as you exit elevator. Swimmers do leave puddles of water at elevator doors. Still location above Old Mill is very convenient and the rooms are first rate. We had a group rate of $149 for Leadman race, as this was race hotel, but nothing was done for the athletes, not even coffee available before our shuttles that left at 4:30 a.m. Directions from front desk staff were as good as from a concierge, and they were exceedingly amenable to special requests, like U.P.S. Shipping.
