I'm sad not to be able to give this hotel 5 stars. Let me tell you why it lost one point. My wife and I are touring Oregon on our honeymoon trip and pre-booked our hotels. Arriving at Cannery Pier with our Expedia confirmation in hand, we found that the hotel had not received the booking from Expedia. The hotel was most apologetic and did address the issue right away, found a room and even provided a bottle of sparkling cider as it was our honeymoon on last minute notice. The lost booking is why a star was lost. Now let me tell you what's great about this place.
1) A wonderful and helpful staff all around.
2) Beautiful rooms in the most amazing of settings. Every room has a river view from atop the pier. I cannot say enough about the setting, it is just wonderful.
3) A free chauffer service that will take you anywhere in town in one of two beautifully maintained classic cars: a 1937 Studebaker and a 1950s era Chevy. The driver we had was the most friendly person we'd met on our honeymoon tour and made our trip truly memorable.
4) Nice touches: a beautiful bathroom with a huge 4-legged tub; binoculars to watch the river traffic; a beautiful window seat where to rest while enjoying the vista; and a cozy wool throw to keep warm while watching the river traffic.
5) Location: while not downtown the chauffeur service gets you there quickly. It is, however, on the river walk -- a beautiful riverfront trail that you can walk into downtown if you wish.
6) Wine and cheese with local wines was complimentary in the early evening
7) A beautiful lobby and patio to enjoy coffee in the morning.
8) Good beds and a good sleep.
I wish I could give this hotel 5 stars as it deserves it, but they need to solve their technical problems. Had the hotel been fully booked we would have lost out on a most memorable part of our honeymoon.
