Waterfront balconies in each room allow guests to feel a part of exciting river traffic to and from the Pacific Ocean. Hotel owner, Astorian Robert Jacob, designed and built the hotel as a tribute to the Finnish Fishermen who created the first Fishermen’s Cooperative in Astoria during its heyday as the “Salmon Canning Capital of the World”.
