We arrived at Mcmenamins St. Francis School to the smell of great food, and found out way to our King Room. The room was large with 2 soaking tubs, two showers, but not the greatest light for a bathroom (hard for woman to do make-up). Food in the restaurant was great, tasty, although service a bit slow. We moved to a second queen room the second night and although not as palatial, it was also very comfortable and more than adequate - comfy beds, pillows, etc. Great bartender who made awesome drinks.
Overall ambience was great, rooms clean, comfortable, and good size. Restaurant good, wonderful Turkish Bath great for soaking with gorgeous Italian tile frescos of St. Francis and various colorful settings (i.e. grape making, wheat harvesting etc.)...McMenamins is a destination and should be experienced. Be aware it's expensive, but worth it...
What would have made it 5 stars? Better parking availability (lot often full); more light in the bathrooms and magnifying mirror; bit more creative food preparation; include breakfast in the cost.
