Why We Like This Place

  • You can bask in a trifecta of iconic Oregon vistas—the Columbia River, Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Hood—from this romantic waterfront, wedding site. And since the hotel has its own slips right on the River Jantzen Beach, you and your guests can arrive by boat.
  • Both ballrooms offer fabulous river views. You have your choice of the Mt. St. Helens Ballroom with its 16-foot ceiling or the appropriately named Grand Ballroom, so spacious that you can entertain up to 2,500 of your nearest and dearest.
  • The landscaped, waterside patio is a delightful spot for cocktails and canapés as well as dinner, featuring their creative seasonal cuisine. And if all this great food and scenery has whet your appetite for more, you’ll appreciate the overnight accommodations that let you linger to indulge further.
