Pulling up to the hotel at first we did not realize we were there. From the front looks like an office building. After a few trips through the parking lot, we thought we'd try the door with the "registration" sign out front hoping this was the hotel. A couple of helpful front desk agents helped to figure out that when my mother in law had reserved the room two months ago online, with her credit card but somehow got my name with the reservation, that we had actually needed a authorization release for her card to be used for the room. We did not know that. Since my mother in law lives in Alaska this was supposed to be part of Christmas gift staying over night and having a ride on The Polar Express on the nearby Mt. Hood Railroad. The agents offered to email my mother in law with the forms needed so we could check in.
We got the check in stuff figured out, and got the keys to our room. A nice quiet room with a terrific view of the gorge river. Since it was a children's event nearby (polar express), the hotel seemed to be filled with families. You could hear the happy kids in the main hallway. When the tv was on and we were talking that seemed to block out any noise from outside. Enjoyed sitting on our desk looking around. The beds were quite comfy & firm, and we all fell asleep rather quickly. Part of our check in was a voucher for breakfast at the Riverside Restaurant. (has it's own entrance from the hotel). A little wait time for breakfast (sunday morning) and lots of families to eat. The hostess gave our boys some etch-a-sketches to play with while waiting for our food, which we thought was really a great idea. Would have liked a buffet to get kids eating quicker than waiting for meals to be cooked. But a good hearty breakfast.
