My girlfriend and I took a road trip from Victoria BC down to Disneyland in Anaheim, all along the 101 scenic highway. Astoria turned out to be a good stopping point on our first driving day. I saw it online and thought it looked cute, clean, and cheap, so we went for it. The woman working the front desk (who said she was knew) was absolutely awesome. She ran up and down the stairs several times grabbing different keys to show us tons of different rooms and see which we would like. We went with the simple 1-bed room with the private shared bathroom for the whole floor. The room had really neat decor (so did the rest of the place), and was extremely clean, probably very recently renovated. Small, but all we needed. They managed to actually make it feel cozy and intimate rather than just squeezed and cramped. The shared private bathrooms and shower were really not at all the problem I thought they might be, though I admit the hotel was not very busy while we stayed. The great lady working the front desk recommended a local Brewery for dinner, which we loved as well. I had a great coffee before heading out in the morning in the great coffeeshop attached to the lobby. The only thing I didn't like about this place was that we didn't have time to stay there on our way back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the heart of the Astoria Downtown Historic District, the Commodore Hotel occupies the 1925 Lewis Building, designed by John E. Wicks, Astoria's most influential architect. The hotel operated from 1925 until 1968, first as the Barton Inn Hotel and then as the Commodore. Shuttered for 40 years, the Commodore reopened in 2009 after an extraordinary renovation. Retaining the original doors, windows, woodwork, and fixtures-all meticulously rehabilitated-the Commodore is now a shining example of the highest standards of contemporary design and construction. The Commodore shares the historic Lewis Building with the legendary Street 14 Coffee, which you can enter directly from the lobby. Downtown Astoria is overflowing with sensory delights-dining, shopping, hiking and more are at your fingertips. Take a romantic stroll along the scenic Riverwalk. Take a ride on the Riverfront Trolley. Take a swim at the Aquatic Center. As our guest, you have access to a curated selection of films available on DVD from the front desk. Watch Goonies in the town where it was filmed. Spend a blustery night curled up with Chinatown or Magnolia.
