Well, not actually "grand" but being built in 1921 it was the grand-old hotel of the Columbia river gorge. Having that period-look and feel, it is perched on the cliffs that face north (to the river) - with commanding views of the river and the Washington State side of the river. It's not a big place (certainly not by modern... More

For an older hotel, the rooms were nicely furnished, especially the bathrooms which are spacious and recently remodeled. The windows are thin so don't keep out street noise or keep in warmth very well. It is located away from the downtown area of Hood River if you are looking for restaurant options outside of the hotel.

We loved staying at this hotel! The grounds are beautiful, and the sound and sight of the waterfall behind the hotel are amazing as well as the river view! We were given a private tour by our concierge Rick Vaughan who was very detailed in his historical knowledge of the Hotel! My husband and I enjoyed a very nice breakfast... More

Getting dark on a rainy night in the Columbia Gorge. Pulled off the interstate to search the Internet for a place to stay. Saw the fairytale lights of the gardens twinkling beyond the stone gates with the welcoming blaze of lighted windows of a grand hotel from an era almost forgotten. I half expected to see Duesenbergs and Packards drawn... More

We loved it! Every single employee was the best! Service was fantastic! The room was comfy and it was like we were in a garden estate. It was our 40th Wedding Anniversary and very romantic We were impressed with how much there was to do in Hood River. Lots of great places to eat and shop.

Just had one night to get away, but really enjoyed our room, after requesting a move to a bigger room..ended up with a corner one that was beautiful!! Your staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Only complaint would be that the coffee was not hot either at Happy Hour or in the morning!! That's it!! Definitely would return!

I am sure it costs a lot to keep this place in good shape and they do a good job of it. The grounds are nice, the rooms are fine although the rooms have lost their original details and charm. The restaurant did not look appealing but the other public areas were fun. You have to have the desk clerk... More

All of us enjoyed everything about our stay...great beer, excellent food (all of it!), good mattress. The whole hotel was clean and neat. I only have two suggestions: there were plenty of pillows on the bed (and I do love me lots of pillows!) but maybe there could be some soft pillows along with the firm ones; and more goodies...
