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.

**Best place for a Girls Getaway **
Denielle D

If you have never stayed at the Allison, you are missing out!! If you want to be treated like a queen and spoiled & pampered your entire visit, this is the place to stay hands down. The staff is amazing and every detail has been thought of. Truly an amazing, relaxing stay!

Service Matters
RosiGreen

We chose The Allison Inn & Spa for a girlfriends retreat. A couple of us had stayed in the past and had good experiences. The property and rooms are very beautiful. The service was seriously lacking. When you pay $600 per night for a room, you have certain expectations. Not only were our expectations not met, but we had several very frustrating issues. Positives: Lovely building and grounds / food and beverage was expensive, but the quality was very good. Location is a good to visit many wonderful vineyards. Negatives: Issues with housekeeping - dirty dishes left and no clean glasses when they had visited our room to make beds. Requested dishes be cleared, clean glasses, additional pillows, and a water and our room was visited FOUR times to fufill this request. Very disruptive. Staff did not have good knowledge of the area. There is no coffee or tea in the room - you have to go down to the lobby to get this. I asked for a tray to carry 4 cups back to my room and I was told to bring the tray back. All I could say was, 'Seriously?' as I stood in the lobby in my robe. The rude reply, "Yes, we only have two trays." First - there should be coffee available in the privacy of our room; second - since it isn't, the staff member should've offered to carry my coffee back to my room with me to retrieve his tray if he needed it so badly. My spa service had a huge issue that I won't go into here. Tip: The valet service is included with your stay. However, since we didn't receive a welcome email or anything highlighting this, I wasn't aware. It is noted on the website, but after booking several months in advance, I missed this. Valet service is generally pretty expensive so I self parked a long ways from the front door. Then could not find any way to get to the front door without going up 3 flights of outdoor stairs. I had to drag my heavy suitcase up these stairs. I can't imagine how somebody in a wheelchair would get to the front door. When I asked the front desk lady about a better way to the front door from the parking lot she said, "I don't know, we come in a different door." Then, no offer from anybody to help get my luggage to my room. I was buy myself and had a lot... this is pretty standard practice in places with this price tag. In closing, I do not write bad reviews, but feel there needs to be a buyer beware with the current lack of service. I do love this property and hope that leadership takes action in additional training for the entire staff.

Incredible property, grand setting, very comfortable and enjoyable. Food was great in the restaurants. Rates are high, but worth it. Spa is well appointed. Common areas of the hotel are outstanding. Really enjoyed the visit.
