I stayed one night at Salish for a corporate meeting taking place over two days in their conference facilities. This was my first stay at this property, although my wife and I had considered it previously for weekend getaways. I'm happy to have experienced the hotel on my company's dime rather than having stayed at my own expense, as I would not stay again at their rates given the rooms, amenities, and services.
The property is nice and in a pretty setting. Through luck of the draw, I had a room on the spa level as well as a view of the river leading up to the waterfall. Others had poor views and noisy rooms, so I'm glad luck was on my side. The room itself was okay, nothing really wrong with it but nothing to excite me. I was mildly turned off by the smell of the fireplace, which permeated the room. It just smelled like burnt or burning wood, and I felt vaguely like I was camping because of this. Others probably don't mind and might even like this, it just wasn't the feeling I wanted at what was supposed to be a luxury property. The bathroom was disappointing, and the large spa tub was downright odd. I'm not a fan of hotel tubs, and especially spa tubs with jets, as they give off an unsanitary vibe (jets can't be fully sanitized unless they're run through with chlorinated water after every guest, and chances are that isn't happening anywhere). It was really odd to have to step over and into a the middle of a giant tub in order to shower. This set up might be romantic for couples, but it was awkward for me as a business traveler as I just needed to shower and get going. So, keep my perspective in mind as other travelers might put the giant tub/shower combo in the "plus" column. The bathroom also felt dark despite all the lights being on, which wasn't conducive to a quick morning experience.
Overall, there was nothing really exceptional nor horrible about this property. Everything was just okay with a few points I didn't prefer for my needs during this stay. From my perspective, the property doesn't warrant the rack rate that hovers around $300 per night. That is Four Seasons in downtown Seattle prices, and you're not getting anywhere near that type of experience.
