A nice step back in time
It was a wonderful modern take on stepping back to a historic time. The bedroom was super roomy, had comfy chairs a wonderful fireplace a spacious bathroom and the river views were beautiful. We stayed two blissfully peaceful nights. We will be recommending to friends.
Our new favorite getaway
Loved the look, the feel and the view! I love old buildings and CGH lives up to an example of what updating an old building should be. The best of all, my wife loved it! She wants to make CGH a regular get away. The room was really nice and very clean. The staff was nice and very helpful. The food at the restaurant, for both breakfast and dinner, was surprisingly great. Hotel restaurant food, for me, tends to be a little blah and the menu looked suspect, but wow! Can’t wait for the next stay.
I went for a during-the-week get away with a mom friend - perfect short escape. The room and spa were amazing, beautiful breakfast views, and not too far from quaint downtown Hood River. We will definitely be back the next time we need respite.
Enchanting hotel! Magical gardens.
Wow this hotel is absolutely enchanting! Loved our room and view of the gorge. The gardens even in February dormancy and magical. I can only imagine how they must look during prime summer season. They even gave our dog a gift bag. So nice to stroll around the grounds. So much history. All of the staff were exceptionally friendly.
Loved Our Stay Again, 35 Years Later
35 years after spending our wedding night at CGH, my wife and I returned for a weekend to celebrate our anniversary. All the things we loved about our stay 35 years ago, the charm, comforts, good food, friendly service, and great views of the natural beauty of the Gorge were all still there to be had after all these years! Dancing with my bride in the piano lounge on Saturday evening, just as we had done on our wedding night, was the highlight for us. Thanks for the great stay, and the memories!
