We arrived on the Victoria Clipper, walked the few short blocks to the Albion Manor and were immediately captivated by the beautiful gardens. As we explored further both inside and out, the artwork on display was quite varied, exceptional, and beautifully situated. There was always artwork peeking out from some hidden corner. The room was extremely comfortable and beautifully appointed, clean, and quiet. Somehow, Don and Fernando always seemed to be able to interpret our moods and recommended perfect restaurants for dinner each night. Breakfast was exceptional, and I'm glad we picked the later seating so we could chat longer in the dining room with Don, Fernando, and the other guests. We spent some time each day sitting in the garden relaxing with a bottle of wine, and each evening, before retiring, we availed ourselves of a few minutes in the Victorian parlor to relax and think about the day, while enjoying the complimentary sherry and cognac. The stay at the Albion Manor was one of the highlights of our 2 week visit to the Pacific Northwest.
