I was pleasantly surprised at this hotel. I've done some business travel, and a fair amount of travel to 5 star resorts. A few years ago, we suffered through a stay at the Marcus Whitman, a real disappointment. So as we planned our next trip to WW, we were looking for something that was at least clean and somewhat newer. Booked this property because of reviews here.
The Property is a year old, and with respect to the room and property itself, it's a legitimate 3 star place. The staff were friendly, helpful, and accomodated a late checkout. The bed was firm, and the room included a mini fridge and a microwave. Coffee shop is next door. Walls a little thin.
It's true that this property is away from downtown and the other main winery areas. But there is one winery within walking distance, and three others within a few blocks. And it's only about a 5 minute drive to downtown, and a 15 minute drive to the airport-area wineries, like Dunham, and 15 minutes to the south-of-downtown wineries, like Rulo and Basel Cellars.
The wine bar is nothing special, but it's what makes the property a 3 star +. They also serve some hot food, mostly bar fare; nachos, chicken wings, skewers, soup, etc. We chose to eat there after dinner at 26brix the night before. (By the way, don't miss 26brix in downtown WW, excellent, but $$$.) Also nice was the patio area outside the bar, which has a gas fire pit which came in handy when the first nice day of spring turned into a chilly evening. Unfortunately, the patio area its surrounded by an imposing iron fence, reminiscent of the state penitentury nearby. This block the sparse view of the river, which is just as well, since the river itself is a corps of engineers marvel; channeled, terraced.
We will return to this property.
