Expert Review

If you’re looking for a hotel with turn-of-the-century charm that doesn’t feel stuffy or outdated, this landmark property is a real gem. Built in 1909, the neoclassical façade still looks as grand as ever, but a renovation in the 1990s significantly modernized the inside. Rooms are dressed in shades of cream, beige, and chocolate and include contemporary furnishings and modern amenities like complimentary WiFi. Meanwhile, on-site restaurant Jake’s Grill serves up steaks and seafood raised locally in the Pacific Northwest.
