My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to a stay at the Hotel Elliot as we had run away (at the ages of 60 and 62 respectively!) to get married in Astoria. My husband's originally from Oregon, his grandmother was raised in Astoria and he was very close to her, so ...
Seriously, what a rip off with a few Art Deco frou-frous to 'justify' its 'boutique' status. It cost us $189 + tax for a tiny room with no a/c, next to no storage and an iron that dripped all over my 'wedding dress'. The bed was no more comfortable than one you'd find at any Best Western at a much lower price. The place seemed to be staffed by willing but harrassed high school kids on vacation. And the only cups offered at a very skimpy continental breakfast were styrofoam. When we asked for china, two mugs were produced - the only two available.
Best Western for us next time! The Astoria one may look like a maximum security prison, but you know what you're going to get. There is nothing that annoys me more than something with no style pretending to be stylish.More
