Overview

The Review

Set on 35 acres, The LEED Gold–certified Allison Inn & Spa blends seamlessly into the beautiful Willamette Valley, proving that luxury and green are not mutually exclusive. The natural patina of the building’s stone and copper exterior evolves with the ecosystem, and the grass and sedum on the roof allow the hotel to “grow” with the valley it overlooks.

Nearly everything on offer in the hotel is the product of local ecosystems or communities, from the artwork on display to free seasonal guestroom snacks {“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/3234/prop-27446-1351862867-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”A sweeping, glass-enclosed stairwell leads past waterfalls to the 15,000-square-foot spa.”}(such as chocolate-covered hazelnuts) to the spa’s signature Pinot Therapy. The bounty of the Pacific Northwest shines in the signature JORY restaurant, where the 800-label wine list features excellent vintages from the region’s mom-and-pop vineyards (among other areas), and fresh ingredients on an ever-changing menu. Grab a counter seat at the open kitchen and chat with chefs as they prepare cedar-planked wild king salmon or smoked duck breast with figs and pecans in a wood-burning stove.

A sweeping, glass-enclosed stairwell leads past calming waterfalls to the fitness center and indoor pool, which have wood ceilings, a sky window, and a sauna. The scent of eucalyptus lingers from the steam rooms at the Allison Spa, which offers four lounge areas – three of them with outdoor terraces. Treatments at the spa incorporate fresh herbs, and the wrap and scrub products use grapes grown in the valley.

Wood-trimmed hallways conjure a forest ambience, along with the calming earth-tone decor. In the guestrooms there are private balconies and oversize windows with cushioned seats that grant vistas of the valley or the property’s private vineyards, while mechanized shades ensure privacy. The bathrooms emulate the spa’s herbal, floral, wine and water theme and are fitted with six-foot soaking tubs, separate showers, and double vanities with organic soaps. Added guestroom touches include recycled wine bottles that serve as tumblers and copper-plated fireplaces controlled with the touch of a button.

Short stay.
Reviewed 2 days ago

The stay was too short, we did not take full advantage of the facility. Intend to make it a two day stay on our next trip in order to visit the wineries and leisure time to walk and enjoy the hotel grounds.

Genuine people at Allison

Wonderfully genuine people at Allison Inn & Spa. A breath of fresh air when comparing to chain establishments. The staff here knows its community, area wine resources, the hotel industry, their clientele and their state.

Broken Hotel - Amenties, Service & Accountability
Reviewed 1 week ago

What happened to the Allison Inn? This was our fourth stay here and most likely our last. Which makes me sad, but the service and predictability of the amenities leaves much to be desired. Especially when you are paying a premium for a “luxury” hotel.

Throughout our stay we encountered many issues with things being broken. I booked the Allison inn based on the pool. I wanted to do nothing more than drink wine, goto the spa and lounge in a hot tub for my birthday. During a previous stay, there were issues with the pool area making part of it unusable. Surely this shouldn’t happen again? Well, the morning we were to check in, I get a call informing me the hot tub was broken and couldn’t be repaired until a part was obtained. I was really upset to say the least. We just flew in from California and were left scrambling to find alternative plans or just to go with it. We decided to just go with it, as I didn’t want the added stress and we could still use the pool. But come on Allison Inn. Based on the math here, and my luck, you have a 50% chance of the pool area being in full working order. Which is unacceptable in my mind.

The kicker is, we were told it would just be the hotub. The last morning we were there. We walked down with our toddler, in our swimsuits, to find out the entire pool area out of commission. There were no signs, but a rude group of maintenance men that told us the door should have been locked and we needed to leave. Cue, screaming child who doesn’t understand why he can’t go swimming at all.

I spoke with the director of rooms who gave me some half assed “apology” and felt roughly $200 off my three night stay in a suite was “fair” compensation. Which is barely a dinner at JORY. However, for having 50% of the advertised amenities not working. I disagree. He also had the audacity to say airlines are not responsible for mechanical issues, therefore, they shouldn’t be held responsible when something with the pool goes wrong. We also had issues with turn down service. I guess if you close your suite door, to separate the living area and bedroom, they won’t do turn down. Even after calling with no one picking up the phone. And at 6pm. Isn’t that what the do not disturb sign is for? Basically no. The vibe I got was it’s basically the customers fault for the hotels mistakes. You shouldn’t accidentally shut the door. No accountability whatsoever from the hotel. It’s insulting.

We also had the “luxury” of coming back from dinner one evening and the elevator not working. It was broken the rest of our stay. Another thing broken. Good thing we are able bodied and able to take the stairs. But a common themed seemed to be “we will call engineering”.

When issues arised, I feel the staff was unapologetic and robotic. Not understanding. Not going out of their way to make sure we had a pleasurable stay. Bottom line - they nickel and dime you. I don’t want a complimentary service, bottle of wine or 10% off. I want advertised amenities, like a working pool and spa tub. I want a fully functioning hotel. I want to pay full price. I want a memorable vacation. Sadly, what I am going to remember is all the mishaps, mistakes and inability to take accountability.
