The Allison Inn & Spa Review
At this luxurious, relaxing base for exploring the region's 200 wineries, each bright, comfortable room includes a gas fireplace, original works of art, a soaking tub, impressive furnishings, bay-window seats, and views of the vineyards from the terrace or balcony. The massive copper-coil curtain at the entrance to Allison's 15,000-square-foot spa conveys its opulence as a place to enjoy wines, a pinot pedicure, or mimosa massage in one of its 12 treatment rooms. With its casual ambience, attention to detail, and many amenities, the property lives up it its nickname, "the living room of the Willamette Valley."
Wine Country Retreat
Oregon's verdant Willamette Valley wine country has become internationally famous for Pinot Noir, but it lacked a destination hotel prior to the 2009 opening of this stylish but laid-back 85-room retreat. The low-slung, angular hotel with one of the Northwest's largest spas occupies an utterly relaxing, picturesque plot of vineyards, gardens, and hazelnut trees. Rooms are plush but unpretentious, with gas fireplaces, balconies or terraces, and large windows overlooking the countryside. LEED Gold status demonstrates the management's intense commitment to sustainability, and the dapper restaurant, JORY, deftly exploits the region's bounty of delicious produce and rarefied wines and microbrews.
