Astoria’s premiere boutique hotel, The Commodore was built in 1925 and closed in 1965. In 2007, developers bought and renovated the place. This was an act of preservation rather than a historic restoration but nods to the fishing town’s colorful history abound.
The open, elegant spaces are maritime-themed in a modern way. The lobby lounge space suggests the interior of an old ship's cabin, with dark wood, sea-blue upholstery and see-through wall woven from rope. All the rooms have iPod-iPhone docking stations and digitized artwork adorning the walls.
The Commodore offers 18 rooms. Eight are larger suites, with private baths complete with deep soaking tubs, lounging space and views of the city. The 10 remaining rooms make up the Regular and Deluxe Cabins, and they share a hall bath (with marble floors no less).
Weddings and group gatherings are regular events here. What’s more, the Commodore, with its central downtown location, makes a convenient home base for exploring both the town and the rest of the North Coast.
