Hood River Hotel
Step back in time as you enter this fully restored vintage hotel. Hood River's oldest hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Offering 41 rooms and suites, each different and individually appointed with antique reproductions. Enjoy the ambiance of a small European Inn. Our lobby, with a wood-burning fireplace and adjoining Cornerstone Cuisine Restaurant is the perfect place to relax after a day of adventure in the gorge.
In observance of our 103rd anniversary, the Hood River Hotel created a historic photo tour. The gallery provides a close look at the origins and evolution of the hotel itself. It also takes a sideways glance at Hood River and the Columbia River Gorge as the human footprint has changed over the century.
Every Sunday during 2014, two people stay for just $100 in any guest room or suite.

Cornerstone Cuisine Restaurant is a full service dining establiment offering breakfast 7 days a week.. Discerning diners say our food is "always intriguing and inspiring." That's because Chef Mark Whitehead combines a unique blend of inspiring recipes with pure, fresh an natural ingredients.
Our menu offers something for every appetite, from traditional favorites to innovative combinations of ingredients and seasonings. We rely heavily on small local farmers and foragers to provide us fresh produce, grown locally and without unnecessary reliance on chemical fertilizers and pesticides. We buy cage free poultry and eggs from hens allowed to roam free.

In 1911, the present brick Hood River Hotel building was constructed as an addition to the original 'Mt. Hood Hotel'. By the 1920's the local fire marshal forced the demolition of the wooden portion of the building as a fire hazard. The hotel lobby had already been relocated to the brick 'Annex' to take advantage of the heavy traffic on the bustling Columbia River Scenic Highway that was completed in 1915.
By the 1970's, the hotel had deteriorated however increasing windsurfing tourism provided a new lease for the Hood River Hotel in the late 1980's.
Pasquale Barone purchased the hotel in 1988 and he and his wife, Jacquie supervised the restoration of the historic structure. The renovation restored many of the features of the original hotel; lofty ceilings, expansive windows, brass elevator and the marble faced wood burning fireplace in the lobby.
In 2000, Brian and Penny Cunninghame purchased the hotel and continue to operate it as an elegant, friendly small town inn.
