Where the Pacific Northwest elite meets to retreat.
This Northwest resort serves as one of the area's most popular destinations for corporate meetings and retreats. Although much of its business is driven by group gatherings, the full-service hotel has something for everyone, including two golf courses, a spa, nightly movies and arts-and-crafts classes for kids. This 198-room property is set on land once occupied by a salmon cannery. It boasts comfortable accommodations with bleached wood furniture and accents that make it feel mountain rustic and modern at the same time. All of the rooms have views of the water or the on-site marina, and most boast fireplaces and balconies or patios. Guests can kayak, join a Friday night sing-a-long or go clam-digging or beach-combing. Biking and hiking the hotel's trails offer a nice opportunity to explore area wildlife.
