Columbia Cliff Villas Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 27, 2011

I rented the Penthouse suite for my friends 30th birthday, the only word to describe these villas is BREATHTAKING! Everything from the view through the panoramic window, to the gourmet kitchens and the amazing double headed walk in tile shower & soaking tub. I can't wait to come back during the "warmer" months to spend time watching the kite boarders & windsurfer from the comfort of the private balcony. We loved the big wide open area for all of us (4 couple's) to hang out, socialize, play games and watch TV but all had our own private rooms with gas fireplace and private bathrooms to go to at the end of the day.

It was such a great location, it was only a quick drive to downtown Hood River where we went wine tasting and had Dinner from one of my new favorite restaurant (Brian's Pour House) If you like the outdoors your also just a 20 min away to hiking, biking, white water rafting and Mt. Hood. I don't think there is anywhere I'd rather go to relax after a long day of playing the gorge.

Hands down this is the nicest place i have ever stayed . Columbia Cliff Villas would be great for any occasion or group gathering, from a romantic getaway to a 30th Birthday party, or bridal shower. I highly recommend these villas. I will definitely will be staying here again.

I have had the pleasure of staying at these villas several times, once in a room for two and another at one of their suites. Both experiences were everything we could have asked for. The decor is our favorite out of any hotel we have ever stayed in. Cozy yet modern, with everything from balconies overlooking the gorge, to comfortable beds to dual shower heads in the beautifully tiled bathroom. It is the perfect place to experience all that Hood River has to offer. Wine tasting, amazing restaurants, hiking, shopping, water sports, snow sports-- all simply a walk, short drive, or taxi ride away. I highly recommend these villas to anyone looking to enjoy themselves while exploring the Columbia Gorge. They are worth every penny and we look forward to staying here again soon.

We not only stayed at the Villas but also had our wedding ceremony there. It was absolutely beautiful, the space was perfect for us (we had about 20 people). Tracy was absolutely great about working with me to make sure the room was set-up just right. She also helped organize food for the day and just went above and beyond what I expected. The location is beautiful and the nearby stream with waterfall was perfect for our pictures!

Stayed here for two nights while on a trip to explore a bit of Oregon and we were so glad that we did. The unit we stayed in was as beautiful as the views of the river and mountains we had out of every window.

The Columbia Cliff Villas are located next to the Columbia Gorge Hotel and share common grounds with it. The rooms are exceptionally clean and well furnished. Ours had a modern gourmet kitchen, comfortable living area with a fireplace, huge bathroom with a large shower and a great jacuzzi tub. The bedroom was large, had a very comfortable bed and also another fireplace. Besides the inside, there was a patio that was a perfect perch for a nice glass of wine while watching the sunset over the mountains.

The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The villas don't have a restaurant, but they do work with the hotel next door, so meals are available with just a short walk across the beautiful grounds. There are a few excellent restaurants nearby in Hood River which is just a couple miles down the road.

We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

Stayed on the third level in an eastern facing room, parking lot view. Payed $213 for one room with a very large and comfortable bed, fireplace and bath. The room was a part of a larger suite that was divided for rental purposes so there was no microwave, fridge or coffee pot. Contemporary and clean but be prepared to carry your luggage up three flights of stairs. There is a concierge on duty but no formal check in desk. We had to hunt the concierge down to get the fireplace fixed and to check in. Those things could be overlooked if the suite complex was not so close to the freeway. The freeway sound was so loud that we could not leave the windows open at night and had to wear earplugs to sleep when the windows were closed. Also, the location is not within walking distance of the town of Hood River.

Columbia Cliff Villas is a unique luxury condominium/hotel that offers 52 variations of rooms and suites. It can be somewhat challenging to sort out the options from limited on-line information; selection can also be limited by previous reservations.

TripAdvisor.com is a great resource for savvy travelers seeking more than just the lowest price and brief descriptions found on travel websites. Most of our TripAdvisor guests have posted rave reviews because they were able to match one of our options to their needs. We encourage TA members to contact our 24-hour live reservation desk (1-866-912-8366) to simplify their selection process and assure your accommodations exceed expectations.

Here are a few important facts that were not mentioned in this review:

Columbia Cliff Villas offers a wide variety of rooms (4 styles from $160-$295), as well as 4 styles of suites from $295-$595. All "suites" feature fully furnished kitchens (with microwaves, ranges, refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers and coffee makers). All of our "rooms" are equipped with Keurig individual-cup coffee makers and a variety of quality coffees and tea; some but not all "rooms" also have mini-friges.

27 of those rooms and suites can be conveniently accessed without any stairs or steps. We only have 3 rooms like this review, located on the 3rd floor, that require climbing 2 flights.

To take full advantage of the spectacular scenery, Columbia Cliff Villas is perched on the edge of a 220' cliff overlooking the Columbia River Gorge, approximately 1 mile from the charming village of Hood River - which is further inland.

Most of our rooms and suites are oriented toward the river, where there is no highway noise and guests enjoy only the soft roar from the adjacent waterfall and wind in the old-growth conifers from their secluded balconies. Rooms like this one are on the opposite side where there is some highway noise but CCV was constructed with extra soundproofing to minimize outside noise and air conditioning to maintain room comfort without opening windows on that side.

We do our best to adequately staff our front desk and offer bell service at check-in. Unfortunately, this guest caught us at one of those peak times when we had limited options and our staff was serving other guests; we sincerely apologize. Please call us as early as possible for best selection and to get the entire scoop on all Columbia Cliff Villas has to offer.

Columbia Cliff Villas are right next to the Columbia Gorge Hotel and share gorgeous grounds with it. The rooms are spotlessly clean and well-furnished, with modern fixtures and high quality materials throughout. The shower, tub, kitchen, floors, bed, and television were all great. The wireless internet access was high speed. It actually had us grinning like kids when we checked in and saw the suite and the grounds.

The suites are in well-constructed condominiums, and some adjoin other rooms (there is no access between rooms, but there are double locked doors in the fashion of some hotel suites). We didn’t notice the neighbors during our stay.

Our view was breathtaking (see photos). Regardless of whether the room is one with a view or not, the grounds are beautiful and right on the Gorge, overlooking a waterfall.

The staff were warmly friendly and professional, and they helped us with information on the area (the guidebook they recommended was indispensable). There is housekeeping and linen service as usual but I believe nothing in the way of room service food. However there is a restaurant at the hotel next door. Even better, there are excellent restaurants in Hood River which is just 2 miles down the road. The places we ate used many local ingredients and offered superb wines from the region.

You won’t be able to do everything that the Hood River area and the Columbia Gorge offers in one trip. You’ll have to come back multiple times, and the Columbia Cliff Villas make a scenic and luxurious home base from which to explore the area.
