We had our dream wedding at the Columbia Gorge Hotel this past June! My husband and I are from Chicago and started looking for venues one year ago after our engagement. We knew we wanted to get married in Oregon as we love hiking and the scenery. After looking at many wedding venues we fell in love with the Columbia Gorge Hotel. Our wedding guests were given such a unique experience. Our wedding ceremony was outside overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. Our cocktail hour was by the STUNNING hotel waterfall with the incredible view of the gorge and we hosted our reception inside the beautiful and intimate Benson Ballroom. Our wedding guests LOVED it. It's been a month and everyone continues to talk about the memorable experience. Everything from the service to the food was fantastic.

A big thank you to Trina in the wedding/sales department at the Columbia Gorge Hotel. She worked with us from day 1 and gave us the first tour when we were looking at places one year ago and was on site the day of the wedding and was even with me before I walked down the aisle. She truly went above and beyond on every aspect and was such a joy to work with. I had ten thousand questions from our budget, vendors, food and beverage, table setting, room reservations, etc and she answered them all and guided me throughout the journey. The entire wedding and all the details she thought of were beautiful. Thank you again for giving us our dream wedding. It was more than we ever expected! We plan to come back for our one year anniversary!

We had a fabulous experience working with Kim Bosch and the Columbia Gorge Hotel for our August 2010 wedding.

The hotel and grounds are amazingly beautiful. You couldn't ask for a better backdrop for your ceremony and reception. Those of you unfamiliar with Hood River and the Gorge will be blown away! We had our ceremony outside and reception inside in the ballroom.

In terms of planning, we had nothing buy positive experiences working with Kim, their onsite point person. She really helped steer the direction in terms of menu planning and timing of events. She even ran our rehearsal as our officiant was unable to attend. She went above and beyond and we really appreciated it.

In terms of food, it was amazing! Having the tasting beforehand and being able to meet the chef was really helpful. There was flexibility with the menu and appetizers which we appreciated. Everyone raved about how great everything tasted. In terms of wine and beer service, they kept on 'running out' of different things. Our signature cocktails we designed for the event started out great, but eventually became vodka and whatever mixer was on hand. We would've liked to see a little more organization behind the bar, but to be honest no one was really lacking in terms of alcohol!

Overall, we had an amazing wedding and would highly recommend the Columbia Gorge Hotel as a venue for your ceremony and reception.

This location is one of the most beautiful places you could ever think to get married. We went through planning for almost a year and the only hiccup we had was that we ended up working with another event coordinator halfway through because our original person had been promoted. Although we worked with two different people, we were able to get the most beautiful wedding we could have dreamed about.

We got married at the columbia gorge hotel this year and the wedding was truly amazing. This venue is beautiful and means so much to my husband and I. The hotel staff, the catering staff, and the event staff were all very helpful and friendly. The food was wonderful and the wait staff was so so patient and friendly to myself and guests. They helped set up and take down everything. We had a few different people who really helped before and the day of the wedding. Kim was there to help coordinate things before the wedding. She was so wonderful and a delight to be aroundd. The day of the wedding we had Trina helping us coordinate and she was wonderful. Very friendly and professional. This is an incredible place to be married. They truly went out of their way to help make it perfect for us.

I loved holding my wedding at the Columbia Gorge Hotel. It was the perfect location. Sometimes it was a little hard to get responses from the staff while we were planning but we were allowed to do whatever we wanted for the wedding (we didn’t have any extraordinary request though.) We booked the all inclusive package which we were very happy with. There is a good vendor selection all whom we liked working with. I was a little nervous about the cake because there weren’t very many good photos of their pastries chefs work but it turned out lovely and it tasted great! My only word of warning is if it’s a hot day the ballrooms AC doesn’t keep up with the number of people and the kitchen being right next door, so it was hot.

Beautiful venue, our pictures had amazing backdrops and all of our guests were impressed. The hotel is a great place for an intimate-feeling wedding, especially if you have a lot of family from out of town and everyone stays there. It is nice to have a wedding planner on site, she had a lot of great ideas and was very enthusiastic to put together a memorable day.

We fell in love with how beautiful this place is and luckly we were able to get the date that we wanted. Trina was very helpful with everything. The food was wonderful. Our complain was that the AC in our room did not work very well and on our day it so happen to be a very hot and humid day.
