    Excellent!

    We worked with the wedding coordinator, Elisa, at the Columbia Gorge Hotel. We had an excellent experience, and would recommend her and the hotel to anyone! It is a beautiful location that ourselves and our guests won't ever forget!

    Perfect day

    After the coronavirus dismantled our original wedding I was ready to just go to the court house and get it over with. One day while searching quant wedding options I found the Columbia gorge hotel had the perfect package for 25 of our closest friends and family. It offered ceremony and reception including drinks appetizers and cake and of course Elisa the wedding planner. Elisa is the most detail oriented person I have ever met. I really appreciated her vision of day that I lacked. She was patient and flexible. They accommodated adding a wonderful dinner to our package. The team that served our food and drinks were so pleasant and attentive. The grounds are perfectly manicured and beautiful views of the river and waterfall. I am so happy I found this option.

    Excellent value

    Many, many thanks to Alyssa for putting together a wonderful reception. Thanks, too, to Don, Great and Allie for the personal service throughout. The venue was beautiful, the food was exceptionally good, and this venue was a terrific value.

It was an honor to work with Columbia Gorge Hotel at Erin and Kevin's wedding this past Saturday. Our couple was stress free while doing their wedding prep which says amazing things about their wedding planner Teresa and her staff. We also liked seeing Teresa's staff ensure that our couple ate and drank. They went over and beyond by catering their drinks and appetizers to the garden while we were capturing their after ceremony portraits. Their reception was beautiful and fun! We highly recommend the Columbia Gorge Hotel for all your events and wedding needs.
