Our family and child stayed in Room 307 this time and were glad to be on the top floor. This place is loud but you can't beat the rustic feel and ski in ski out feature. Here are my notes:
Small bathroom, with one shelf holding thee extra toilet paper. Nowhere to put anything. The shower is small. Full size hair dryer is included.
I love the glass water container.
The dresser is half full with extra towels and blanket. There is another set of drawers to store and a closet. This room faces the mountain peak so you can see the chairlift through the trees.
No fridge or microwave. The room was warm and we had to open the windows to cool it off. The blinds helped keep the room dark in the mornings. You can hear anyone in the halls.
19" TV with limited channels. The wifi worked well.
Hot tub and pool were too cold this time. Need to up the temp on winter days. It's always a good place to meet people apres ski. They have slippers available in the lobby but bring a robe.
The fish tacos at the shack on the hill were excellent.
We could only get a reservation during the week, but were surprised they had availability during WA spring break.
Note that even with all the snow this year, they have now cut off group ski lessons.
I have to say I was blown away by the consistency of great service.
Parking assistants. Front desk. Servers in restaurant. Housekeeping. Office personnel. Maintenance. Car drivers. Cooks. Just everyone.
It was amazing how friendly and attentive. How much they seem to love working here. It was contagious.
It was pretty sold out and I got a room in one of the bunk bed little chalets. Fun fun. Felt like Camp. Bed was comfortable and the shower and bathrooms are kept very clean.
Sauna pool and tub are great and just what you need after an adventure cold day.
I was here for a guided climb of hood. It was fenomenal to have the room and the lounge area.
Live music both days. Food was great. The fireplaces blast with huge logs.
Historical part of the hotel adds a vintage feel and some nostalgia.
Ok. I'm not blind to what was not perfect. It does depend on what your mental attitude is. The walls are a bit thin so keep that in mind in the chalet. They give you earplugs.
Loved it overall.
The bath towels were deliciously gigantic! I just had to get that out of the way. The location, for a skier, could not have been more perfect. Access to the slopes is right out the door. They also have free ski storage closets for guests on the first floor!
Bear in mind it's a historic lodge; not a 21st century hotel. You are staying in a fabulous northwestern museum from the 1930s, with wood-carvings at every turn. (They do have wi-fi, of course.) The staff is extremely friendly and helpful in this mind-blowing old hotel with a slightly mysterious essence - we felt like we were staying in an old castle. There's a massive stone fireplace in the center that goes up three stories, and they set out coffee and tea service each morning at 6 a.m. And yes, they do keep an axe behind the registration desk with "Here's Johnny!" written in magic marker on wooden handle.
We make our reservations a year in advance. You are lucky you got one 'a few weeks' in advance. Someone must have dropped dead to be forced to give up their reservation for you then to have one.
This is no place for the weak and the spoiled. We are all here to ski hard, party hard, and we sleep good. Get your meds out and put in the ear plugs. This place is a Museum. Could even be ghosts. You know nothing about steam heat... Hey you were lucky you had heat. Wait, what would you have done when there is to much heat? Do you know how to open a window? We have been returning Jan - March for 35 years. Now there are 3 generations in our group. A grandmother's ashes are at the base of a tree. We always get the best service but maybe because we are regulars, and not complainers.
We drove up here because
We wanted to see
Busy day with spring skiing on Friday but they let us up for lu
Typical ski lodge with typical ski lodge prices
We are interested in history &I can't stop thinking about this
According to diaramas, it was built by WPA in 1935-- 20 years later it had fallen into disarray with gamblers and prostitutes
Saved by a private person and committees
Thank goodness --beautiful works
We live in a small town in WV--in incredibly beautiful stone works still in same shape 60 years later & we had gamblers & prostitutes
How did this happen at Timberline?
Can't stop wondering
