If you’re looking for a great view from your hotel room, Cannery Pier Hotel is very hard to beat. All 46 rooms have unobstructed views of a broad swath of the Columbia River with the Washington coastline beyond--plus the huge freighter boats gliding by, plus the four-mile Astoria-Megler Bridge. The intelligent room layout includes comfy window seats and small balconies. The bed was a bit hard (I adjusted) but there were plenty of pluses, including free wi-fi (which was pretty fast too), a fireplace, TV, a fridge and microwave, a large bath tub and separate shower. They also offer free parking, a free (but small) gym, a free community hot tub and free food (continental breakfast, wine and cheese/snacks in the evening, and freshly baked cookies at night) served in a feel-good lobby with high glass walls and cozy nooks with fireplaces. And since the hotel opened in 2005 you don’t have to worry about “deferred maintenance.” Staff was friendly too. And one of the best restaurants in Astoria, the Bridgewater Bistro, is on the other side of the parking lot. What kicked it up to five stars was that I got all this for less than $700 (out the door) for four nights! (Be sure to check in periodically with the hotel for special discounts—they honor AAA and they were offering 25% off in February!)

We stayed over a birthday weekend. I have wanted to stay here for years and finally made it. I loved the location, over the Columbia, and especially enjoyed the ships. They even have a schedule of ships to give you at the front desk, so you know where they are from, where they are headed and what's in them. Staff was very friendly and helpful with dinner recommendations/reservations. The room is large and loved the bathtub that allows a view of the river and ships. The only slight negative is, for the price of the room, the breakfast options could be improved. There was also a wireless internet problem, but they were prompt with an ethernet cable to the room. They were aware of the problem and hopefully that is now fixed.

For our 50th Wedding Anniversary last September, our kids gave us a night at the Cannery Pier Hotel and dinner at Baked Alaska, but left the date open-ended so that we could pick a time that was most convenient for us. Normally, we would not spend the night in Astoria as we live only an hour away, but ever since the hotel was built I've thought it looked like a neat place to stay. However, even the hotel off-season rates are a little more then we would usually spend, even on a 'splurge'. The Anniversary gift gave me the chance to check-it-out.

Last week we had a couple of unusually nice sunny days and we had no other obligations, so I called the hotel on Wednesday morning and asked if they gave any discounts for AAA, AARP, or Last Minute from the rate posted on the website. I was offered a 10% discount. The normal check-in time is 4 p.m., but since rooms were available we could check-in anytime.

We arrived around 3 pm, enjoyed the evening reception, checked out the hotel museum pictures and gift shop and got settled into our room. The rooms look exactly like the pictures on the website. They are very nice and very comfortable, with a fabulous view of the river! At 7 o'clock we were shuttled over to Baked Alaska Restaurant in one of the hotel's classic cars, an old Cadillac. Dinner at Baked Alaska was also outstanding.

I often suggest the Cannery Pier Hotel to folks who post on the Astoria/Oregon Coast TA forums. Now I can honestly say, "I give it a high recommendation."

Just returned from a two night stay at the Cannery Pier and we want to turn around and go right back. We found it on Trip Advisor, of course. What a wonderful place. It's clean, modern, and the staff is well trained, friendly and very helpful. The location on the pier is amazing. It seems every window you look out has a unique and beautiful view. Our room, 404 (Robert Plant stayed there!), was much larger than we expected, with a table placed in front of the fireplace, a sitting bench, sofa and king bed. The wood floors really added to the ambiance, as did the spectacular bath with a large clawfoot soaking tub and glass enclosed shower. I really liked the shutters opening from the bath to the rest of the room. You can sit in the tub and see out the windows to watch the ships go by. There is also a small balcony. And yes, you can open your eyes in the morning and are likely to see a freighter pass right by your window. Then you'll be looking for ships all day long. It becomes your passion! Our trip was short, just a two night birthday stay, so we didn't see a great deal of Astoria, but would love to go back and explore. We did have a great dinner at the Tuscan Steak House (chaufferred in a 1951 Cadillac), and we climbed the Astoria Column. It's 164 steps and not a bad climb, really. The view from the Column is worth it. We also drove to Long Beach in Washington (less than 30 minutes) and Seaside, Oregon (about 20 minutes), all in the same day. Loved going over the beautiful Astoria Bridge too, and the view of the bridge from the room is a big part of the experiece. Can't wait until we have an opportunity to stay at here again.

Wife and I stayed for our 19th anniversary for 2 nights. We stayed on the 4th floor with a wonderful view of the bridge and river. Local restaurants were great and the hotel made reservations and drove us in their old cars. The rooms were very nice. My wife loved the bathtub. Really fun river front to walk along. Loved watching the ships go by. Good TV channel selection. I'm trying to get my wife to let us go back sooner than our next anniversary.

We happened on the hotel by chance. As we were driving across the bridge into Astoria we could see the hotel and stopped in to see if we could have lunch. We were told there was no restaurant on site but they recommended the Bistro nearby. The manager was very friendly and asked if we'd like to see a room. WOW! The view was incredible, right on the water, and the room was fantastic. We went to the bistro and had lunch and thought about the hotel. It was too early to stop that day but we were heading down the Oregon Coast for a few days and would be coming back through on our way back to Seattle. We decided to book the room for later in the week. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed a glass of wine in the evening before being driven to dinner at the Baked Alaska in a vintage car. We were picked up in a cab because of some problem with the car but we were picked up promptly and didn't have to drive which was a wonderful service. The continental breakfast wasn't the best that I've ever had but it was included. We took our food back to our room and enjoyed it there and didn't check out until the very latest so that we could sit and enjoy the ships and boats that were going by right in front of us. I'd definitely stay here again.

I read about this Hotel in T & L magazine and thought maybe it was a little more than I wanted to spend for one night but when my daughter called to check on availability they offered us a nice discount. The Cannery Pier Hotel is a small boutique hotel ( 46 rooms) that is absolutely spectacular! Some of the wonderful amenities that we experienced are - a glass of wine at check-in, fresh-baked cookies in the lobby at 8 PM, a continental breakfast ( yummy!) in the morning, newspaper at your door. If you want a ride to dinner the hotel offers two antique Packards to take you there and pick you up. There is also a spa and exercise room available for guests.
The first thing we did upon check-in was to head out on the hotel's deck to watch a magnificent sunset. Many photos later we went to our room and were blown away. The first thing we noticed was the incredible view. The room's sitting area complete with binoculars overlooks the Columbia River. We ventured out on our balcony where we were almost under the Astoria-Megler Bridge. This bridge connects Oregon and Washington and is a work of architectural art. We watched the massive ships as they entered and exited the River.
The next spectacular element in the room was the bathroom with it's gorgeous claw foot tub. Two plush robes hung invitingly next to it. The bathroom also included a glass shower and an expansive counter top with a wonderful lighted make-up mirror. We had two comfortable queen-sized beds , a gas fireplace and anything else you could possibly need. The staff was wonderful and the atmosphere friendly and inviting.
This was the first stop on our Oregon Coast road trip but we really hated to leave the Cannery Pier Hotel and the charming city of Astoria!
