We've stayed in the Commodore twice now on trips to Astoria. The hotel is in a perfect location and has great minimalist design (no floral bedspreads or bad watercolor art on the wall). Everything is white and clean and the hotel has a wonderful old, historic feel that fits right in in the city of Astoria, which is itself a place trapped in time. Since we travel with a baby we always choose a suite, which come with their own bathroom. We've stayed in both room 205 and room 206. Both of these rooms come with warnings about street noise, so choose wisely--if you are sensitive to noise or a light sleeper, you will definitely NOT want these rooms. My 18 month old and my husband slept like babies all night long, but as a light sleeper I was awoken several times by semi trucks driving by in the middle of the night (since the hotel is on the main drag in town, there is lots of interstate traffic rolling through). Aside from that, the suites are roomy--in 206 we were able to push the couch all the way to one wall and fit a pack n play along the other side of the wall next to the bathroom, which gave my husband and I some privacy while sleeping. The amenities are basic though--there are no irons or hair dryers in the rooms, and you don't get any cute travel toiletries (the toiletries are on a dispenser in the bathroom though and smell AMAZING). Also, the lobby is really cute and the attached coffee shop is delish. We will definitely keep coming back here, but for my sanity we will probably pay more for an interior room with less noise next time.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the heart of the Astoria Downtown Historic District, the Commodore Hotel occupies the 1925 Lewis Building, designed by John E. Wicks, Astoria's most influential architect. The hotel operated from 1925 until 1968, first as the Barton Inn Hotel and then as the Commodore. Shuttered for 40 years, the Commodore reopened in 2009 after an extraordinary renovation. Retaining the original doors, windows, woodwork, and fixtures-all meticulously rehabilitated-the Commodore is now a shining example of the highest standards of contemporary design and construction. The Commodore shares the historic Lewis Building with the legendary Street 14 Coffee, which you can enter directly from the lobby. Downtown Astoria is overflowing with sensory delights-dining, shopping, hiking and more are at your fingertips. Take a romantic stroll along the scenic Riverwalk. Take a ride on the Riverfront Trolley. Take a swim at the Aquatic Center. As our guest, you have access to a curated selection of films available on DVD from the front desk.
