Snoqualmie Valley, Washington, United States

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • All rooms have large Jacuzzi tubs and wood-burning fireplaces
  • Flat-screen TVs, plush bathrobes, coffeemakers, and iPod docks
  • 2 restaurants with gorgeous views
  • Renowned 4-course breakfast featuring homemade honey
  • Many rooms have balconies; some have views of the Snoqualmie River
  • Spa with numerous signature treatments, soaking pools, a sauna, and a steam room
  • Dog-friendly hotel with a low, one-time fee; hotel provides food and water bottles, as well as a dog room service menu
  • Several meeting rooms and ballrooms; the lodge is a popular spot for weddings
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Daily resort fee
  • Cramped fitness center with few machines
  • Peek-a-boo bathrooms aren't particularly family-friendly (although shutters can be closed for additional privacy)

Bottom Line

The Salish Lodge & Spa features 84 rooms in a gorgeous setting overlooking the falls in Snoqualmie, about a 40-minute drive from Seattle. The historic property, which originally opened with only eight rooms back in 1916, is a popular romantic getaway and wedding destination. The restaurants feature beautiful views, and the elegant spa has numerous signature treatments (including one with homemade honey!). Sexy rooms have wood-burning fireplaces and peek-a-boo bathrooms with two-person tubs. Families may consider staying elsewhere, as there is no pool and no amenities geared towards kids. The entire property has a soothing, rustic-luxe style; features such as stone fireplaces, stacked firewood, cashmere throws, bookcases, and warm, earth tones complement the outdoor scenery. And guests can indulge in the lodge's famous four-course breakfast before heading out to the many nearby outdoor activities. All of this comes at a price, and a daily resort fee on top seems excessive -- but then, this lodge is one of the most romantic destinations in the Pacific Northwest.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

About 40 minutes outside of Seattle, overlooking gorgeous falls

The Salish Lodge, near the base of the Cascade Mountains, feels a world apart from Seattle -- and is about a 40-minute drive from downtown. The hotel overlooks gorgeous (and staggering!) falls, and the grounds are expansive.

Located in the Snoqualmie Valley, the lodge attracts guests looking for an outdoorsy, quaint vacation. Activities including kayaking at Snoqualmie Falls Park, golfing at one of the area golf courses, visiting the local brewing company, and strolling around the historic downtown area. During the winter, visitors can go skiing.

  • 46-minute drive to Sea-Tac International Airport
  • Adjacent to Snoqualmie Falls Park
  • 3-minute drive to hisitoric downtown Snoqualmie
  • 8-minute drive to the Jack Nicklaus-designed TPC Snoqualmie Ridge golf course
  • 8-minute drive to Twin Rivers golf course
  • 8-minute drive to Mt. Si Golf Course
  • 31-minute drive to Bellevue
  • 34-minute drive to the slopes at the Summit at Snoqualmie
  • 36-minute drive to downtown Seattle
