4 Trendy Northwest Hotels Wine-Lovers Will Adore
If you want an urban wine adventure in the city and want to know which Pacific Northwest hotels are pouring good juice, here are 4 of our most-beloved urban wine hotels.
1. Hotel Vintage Plaza, Portland
The Hotel Vintage Plaza
, in the heart of downtown Portland near the Pearl District, hosts afternoon wine hours in the lobby from 5-6 p.m., daily. The hotel frequently features local vintages from Oregon Wine Country, along with winemaker events, and wine-themed stay packages. The hotel’s signature Italian restaurant, Pazzo Ristorante, is one of the top Italian restaurants in the city, and is a perfect place to pair a big bowl of pasta with a big glass of vino.
2. The Allison Inn and Spa, Newberg, Oregon
The Allison Inn and Spa
is located just about 45 minutes outside of downtown Portland. The Allison caters to wine enthusiasts from around the country and the world, and has received many awards for its shining performance. Members of the staff and culinary team are so knowledgeable about the local wine region and winemakers that you’ll get smart about the region’s best wines. Don’t forget to make reservations at the hotel’s restaurant, JORY, named after the rich, fertile soil of the Willamette Valley. Photo credit: The Allison
3. Hotel Vintage, Seattle
If the hotel’s hip name doesn’t get your attention — get it, Hotel VINTAGE?
— the vibe of this downtown Seattle property certainly will. The Vintage has a daily wine hour, in-room minibars stocked with Washington wine, and an award-winning Italian restaurant, Tulio Ristorante, with some of the best Italian food in the state.
If you’re in doubt about whether the hotel you choose is truly a wine-lover’s hotel, here’s a tip: A great wine-tasting hotel will have an incredible wine list. Take a peek at the hotel’s wine list before you book.
