This Hotel and Restaurant is doing everything right for the discriminating traveler.
Great hotel that is conveniently located, we were in town for a Native American event which happened to be located just down the block from the hotel. It is close to everything in Salem and it was so easy access on and off the freeway yet quiet for sleeping. There is an on-site restaurant for added convenience in addition to a lounge (personable staff James had a great sense of humor and was welcoming) .
The staff member who checked us in was so courteous, efficient, and helpful; she reviewed a map the hotel supplied and informed us how to get to the events/places we wanted to go to.
Before I rave about the on-site restaurant, let me say this hotel got all the little things, right:
big windows that open for fresh air; fantastic pillow-top bed (slept like a baby; never do at hotels as light sleeper); well-appointed up graded rooms, smells good, clean; loved the little things like plugs on the lamp stand, big bags of pre-bagged ice, large mirrors, to-go cups with lids supplied, etc. Indoor pool and exercise room perfect for a bit of exercise, loved the dry sauna
The on-site restaurant, Willamette Valley Grill, is a gem. It was convenient to walk to dinner after a long day of traveling. We were not expecting what we experienced. First, the waiter, Casey was great and helped us chose from the specialties, had good advice. The combination of Casey and the exceptional food made it a delightful experience. Unfortunately, we did not get to meet the chef, we were shocked at the quality of menu, presentation, and preparation. We decided to get two appetizers and glad we did, both were fit for even the most discerning gourmand. Casey informed us some of the ingredients were locally sourced.
This chef knows what he is doing paring unique ingredients that seem unlikely but pleasantly surprise: Rouge Valley Creamery bleu cheese with dried cherries and hazelnuts or a delectable secret sauce in a blended mushroom dish you couldn't stop dipping your perfectly grilled bread into. Red Lion is fortunate to have this chef on-site.
