We stayed in a 2 bedroom queen cabin because that was the last one left when I booked. The grounds and buildings are beautiful. The pool and spa area look great. They have a nice coffee shop that serves food too.
We were surprised that there was no real sitting area in the cabin, though there was a hard bench along the wall in the kitchen (with a cushion) where one could sit at the table. That didn’t really work for us as we like to relax in a chair and read at night. My husband did use the hammock which is a great touch, but its not the same as having a seating area to use. The bed was fine though it fit so tightly in the room that there was zero room on one side (it was against the wall) and maybe 2 feet on the other side. Tight.
Also they demand that you wash your dishes! I found this a bizarre and unreasonable request for the over $250 price we paid for one night. I did wash the dishes since they WILL charge you if you don’t!! But think about this: how great is the dish washing job .... who knows? As long as they look washed no one is going to spot check to see if they are truly clean. If you are the next guest...whatever... I just think its bad policy but my husband thinks it must be a hostel thing. That would be OK if it was a cheaper place! Hostels are cheap right? Hostels are communal...this is not. This is a hotel room that costs quite a bit. For that reason we won’t be back.
I love this hotel! We just stayed in one of the "cabins" for a little get-away and it couldn't have been more relaxing. From the lovely landscaping, outdoor fireplaces, hammocks at the rooms, spa with plunge pools, hot tub and sauna, to the spacious living room lobby with cafe and chill spaces, this place is definitely getting my business again!
The Society Hotel Bingen is a jewel tucked into the Gorgeous Gorge~ This brand spanking new/yet vintage hotel is surrounded by beauty incarnate. The environs are breathtaking, and the staff super fun & friendly!
I adore the spa, soaking pools, & am waiting with baited breath for the underground Sanctuary. This hotel has something for everyone. As someone who has stayed at over 500 properties globally, The Society is it’s own animal, and I believe it will become the gold standard for more properties in the Pacific NW.
This is a not-to-be-missed hotel for the millennial to the mercurial. Adventure is it’s key~
