Though fully booked for Valentine’s Day, the Columbia Gorge Hotel, one of Oregon’s landmark hotels, has closed its doors due to financial woes. A dozen wedding parties will be frantically seeking new event venues.
The 39-room hotel has hosted presidents and film stars. It was built in 1921 as the "Waldorf of the West" by a timber tycoon. It sits above the spectacular Columbia River at the top of a 208’ waterfall.
Current owners are hopeful that someone will purchase the property and reopen in the near future.
