From every room in this captivating property there's a gorgeous view of the mighty Columbia River flowing into the Pacific Ocean, and it's almost hypnotic to watch the tugboats shepherding barges to and fro. Built upon century-old pilings, the hotel occupies the restored Union Fisherman's Cooperative Packing Company building, an integral part of the town's history, but the interior is modern and bright, with a liberal use of glass and polished wood, including hardwood
floors. The Astoria Riverwalk and the trolley line are on the doorstep, with gourmet dining within walking distance. But stick around for the complimentary wine and lox, served daily between 5 and 6 pm. Replica 1950s bicycles are available, or complimentary chauffeur service in a 1939 Buick, 1938 Packard, or 1945 Cadillac.
