Great setting and view of the river-no complaints. Food was actually better than we anticipated at all 3 sittings-good service. Liked the long happy hour with a new piano man who added a very nice touch to the lounge. Maria at the bar was awesome and should get a salary increase (not that she complained) but we liker her vivaciousness... More

No complaints here. Lovely high ceilinged room, great King bed, excellent wifi. And the breakfast was excellent and not terribly expensive. The grounds also are worth exploring, with a waterfall cascading past the hotel and the stream running through the garden. The staff were extremely solicitous and responsive. This is a special place, full of history - a hotel of... More

This is an historic turn of the last century hotel. Well kept, large scale rooms. We opted for a River View off season which is very reasonable. Lovely and recommend it even 'off season'. Bar is lovely and sitting room with beautiful working fireplace facing the Columbia River.
