We came to Astoria to go to the Maritime Museum. What I thought would be an hour or so ended up being five hours. So instead of driving on to Seattle, we got a room in Astoria. The staff at the desk were fantastic. They allowed us to see a room before making our decision. Since it was late in the day, they adjusted the price to a bit lower rate. We took the bait and stayed. All the rooms have a fantastic view of the river. This alone is worth the price of the room. The building is made to resemble a cannery, historic photos of the canneries line the walls. In the evening, you can sign up for a car and driver to take you to a local spot for dinner. We rode in a vintage Cadillac. It was fun, and informative. Astoria is a neat little town.
The room was clean and fresh and clearly thought went into the details of the room. But I'm guessing there were budget cuts before the building was finished. The toilet is in it's own room, a plus, there is a separate shower and a soaking tub, but the lighting is pretty standard. The bed was comfortable, but the sheets were not first class. The furnishings in the room were smart and attractive, but were not heavy duty, I'm not sure they will survive a lot of wear and tear.
These somewhat less then deluxe features would have bothered me if we paid full price.
But, the staff, the view and the historical aspect of the property make it a special place. If you are in the area stop and enjoy Astoria.
