If you have never stayed (or even been) in a bordello, this is the place for you. Located next door to the famous Pendleton Underground Tours (very well worth a visit), this tastefully updated, former "boarding house" is utterly charming. Originally built in the late 1890s, the hotel has hard-wood floors and 18 foot ceilings; the furnishings are Victorian; and there are comfy beds and excellent air conditioning. While there is no restaurant or cafe in the hotel, there is a kitchen and plenty of near-by eateries and drinkeries, including a bakery directly across the street. Like other Tripadvisor reviewers, our party of 4 had the hotel to ourselves. There is nothing bland or ordinary about this hotel. It's a gem.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Working Girls Hotel is owned and operated by Pendleton Underground Tours. In 1991, people on the tour would ask if any of Pendleton's 18 bordellos were still open? The tourists thought it would be fun to stay in one. Pam Severe restored and opened the W.G. Hotel in 1991, in one of Pendleton's old boarding houses (bordello) built in the late 1890's. Pendleton Underground Tours acquired the hotel in 1997. The Hotel has a suite and 4 other sleeping rooms all furnished in Victorian decor. Each room is unique. Hard wood floors, 18 foot ceilings and exposed brick walls make you feel as though you have stepped back in time, only with the luxuries of the 21st century. ... more less
