How to Get There
Sorry to share that this once beautiful Oregon Landmark has lost it's luster.
I hardly know where to begin, but I'll try:
Staff: Young, and completely disinterested in Customer Service or, more importantly, Showing Respect towards customers.
Management: Stopped by the "managers" Office (dirty-blonde female) to ask a question, and was treated as if I wanted to borrow money! Rude, and behaved as if she couldn't be bothered.
The Food: Bring Your Own! Overpriced and your server will behave as if they are doing you a favor by bringing your (highly overpriced) meal while it is still warm!
The Rooms: Small, cramped and dirty.
Make sure to have one of the historic craft cocktails in the upper bar overlooking the mountain. See the history room on the main level. Take the hiking trial up to the upper ski hill lift. We stayed in the closest town down the hill in the valley; Government Camp.
We stopped by on my birthday for lunch, and wasn’t disappointed. It’s well worth the drive as, if it’s not cloudy or snowing you are rewarded with breathtaking views.
The hotel is full of history and has an area showing the history of the lodge and has 2 little rooms set up to how they used to look.
I absolutely loved it and the bean chilli and G&Ts went down a treat.
It’s worth the visit and the hotel has a good feel about it. It’s clean and comfy.
This is a great place to stay on and off season! We were there just before snow season so enjoyed hiking on-property and at trails 20-25 minutes away. Rooms are older but the common areas have great character. Heated pool, hot-tub are great. Also, during ski season, this would be an incredible place to stay as you walk across the parking lot to get your skis, lift tickets, and get on lift! Awesome. We were there with two teens and we all loved it! Easy drive from Portland - take the road along the Columbia River Gorge as the views are 10x better vs. the other route.
Hotel Staff: One reco - the restaurants within the hotel have a very limited menu - for example, very few sandwiches, wraps, salads and shareable apps (e.g. wings, nachos) on the bar menu and in the main restaurant, offers very few (and super expensive) options for dinner. There is a great opportunity to expand the menu and pick up additional revenue from those that pop in for the day - really a missed revenue opportunity. Also, at breakfast, should offer flexible not-on-the-buffet options (e.g. omelettes) - another additional revenue oppty - and set up a grab-and-go coffee / muffins / sandwich kiosk in main lobby.
Right at check in we realized this place was going to be great. They knew we loved the movie the Shining and had the axe for us ready to take photos. Swimming in the pool while it was snowing was really special.
