I stopped at this hotel with a tour group for a night and did not want to leave. The room was huge, decorated in a Western motif (natural for Winthrop), bed was heavenly, micro and fridge, everything you could want. But what made the hotel unique was that it is located on the river bank, every room has a balcony or patio, plus chairs placed on the lawn along the river. Although it was late July, temperature was in low 70s and at night it was cool enough to open the window and listen to the rushing water all night. Early in the morning you can see deer come down to the river. The hotel is next to the downtown (all 4 blocks), across from the Shafer Museum (a must see). Staff very friendly and helpful. When in Winthrop, stay here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Just steps away from the western saloons and aromatic bakeries of downtown Winthrop, the Hotel Rio Vista's rustic facade blends seamlessly with the town's old-time western atmosphere. Overlooking the confluence of the Chewuch and Methow rivers, the hotel features guest rooms that offer private balconies, hand-crafted wood furniture, and works by local artists. A flat-screen HD television and free wireless internet access keep guests connected, while an outdoor picnic area and riverside hot tub offer the chance to unplug within earshot of the mellifluous sounds of nature and the soaring wings of Eagles and Osprey. For winter adventurers, the hotel is just across the pedestrian bridge from the ice rink and start of the Methow Valley's immaculately groomed ski and fat biking trails. The hotel features a Bike and Ski Wax room just for such outdoor activities. All of the Hotel Rio Vista's rooms include free high speed WIFI, DirecTV HD, private riverside decks, coffee bar with Seattle's Best coffee, mini-fridge, hair dryer, A/C, and microwaves. ... more less
