9 Reasons Why You Should Stay at the Cannery Pier Hotel

When we planned our weekend getaway to Astoria, OR, we wanted to find the perfect place to call home base. We were recommended the Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa, which has become an iconic spot in Astoria. Not only was it the perfect location, but our experience there completely exceeded our expectations. Here’s why we think you should stay here too!

9 Reasons to Stay at the Cannery Pier Hotel Astoria Oregon // localadventurer.com

1. Location

Location is always important. The Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa is located right on the river. The riverwalk is one of the big attractions in Astoria, and it goes right by the hotel! You can also take a short stroll or get a ride to downtown and bunch of restaurants.

2. The bridge and river views

This one is the most obvious. You can conveniently leave your windows open all day and night to enjoy the view of the river and the famous Astoria-Megler Bridge. You get even more great views from the lobby and around the hotel.

Can you believe this was right outside our window? The rainbow was the cherry on top!

3. Wine & Cheese reception

Every evening from 5-6PM they have wine, cheese, and lox complimentary for guests. The wine is all local and if you don’t drink, they have delicious sparkling cider from France too. It’s hard to say no to wine, but some nights we just opted for the cider because it was just that good.

4. Rooms were nice and comfortable with a fireplace

Each of the rooms are comfortable and cozy. What’s even better is the fireplace that you can start up anytime you want. At the end of wine and cheese hour, we brought an extra refill of wine to the room to cozy up next to the fire.

5. History

The hotel is built right on top of the 100-year old pilings that previously supported the Union Fisherman’s Coop Packing Company that was there. The history is also in the details of the hotel – just ask any of the staff to point some out. You can also stroll through their small museum on the second floor that talks about the importance of fishing in the area.
