Roll On Mighty Columbia


Celebrating our 42nd Anniversary, sail the waters, ride the rails and dine at the famous Columbia Gorge Hotel. Stay three nights on the shores of one of America’s great rivers


Located in the heart of the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area, The Columbia Gorge Hotel is perfectly situated for guests seeking to explore the abundant sightseeing opportunities located throughout the picturesque Hood River Valley. From the majestic cliffs and waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge and the snow-capped peak of Mt. Hood to over 15,000 acres of farms, orchards, vineyards and the Hood River – there’s something for everyone. 

The Columbia Gorge Hotel & Spa has a rich history and was a favored retreat for many movie stars such as Clara Bow, Rudolph Valentino, and Shirley Temple, presidents like Roosevelt and Coolidge and other social and political dignitaries. During the time of steamers and speakeasies, Valentino and the Model T people were dancing the Charleston and listening to jazz throughout our wonderful hotel. The same lush, romantic ambiance and lavish service of the past continues to delight. 

We’ll stay three nights in this beautiful retreat, laced with gardens and greenery, with the mighty Columbia nearby, this is truly a landmark hotel. Come, enjoy a step into the past with us…
