I told a friend I was staying here, and he said "DON'T", but when I called, the girl on the phone (I believe her name was Hannah) was so enthusiastic, I decided to at least look at the rooms. What a pleasant surprise! The European style hotel rooms (with shared bathroom) were just beautiful, newly remodeled, and classically furnished with just the things you need. Out the huge windows of the bright room, you can watch the huge ships passing along the Columbia river.
I told Hannah that I had read terrible review of this place and didn't understand why, but apparently those reviews were written before the remodel. I can highly recommend this place as a great value, and have to say that Hannah's awesome attitude has everything to do with why I gave this place a try.
She's also a great resource for all the things to do in town which, by the way, is right outside the door of the hotel. That is to say, this place is perfectly located downtown within walking distance of the waterfront, trolley, Maritime museum, restaurants, and even the Astoria column, if you're up for some elevation gain.
