The Camas Hotel

​Did you know we have two Downtown Camas businesses with “Attic” in their names?  

Attic Gallery (421 NE Cedar) was started by Diana Faville in her home’s attic in 1973.  The gallery flourished and later moved to Downtown Portland where Diana and her daughter, Maria worked for many years.  They made the move across the river 3 years ago and have been bringing amazing local art to downtown ever since.

The Artful Attic (217 NE 3rd) opened in Downtown Camas this October. Owners, Lori Lander and Tyson Morris started their business by creating recycled and upcycled pieces. Much of the material for their beautiful creations came from Lori’s late grandparent’s attic. As they cleaned out the house with Lori’s mom, they developed a love for repurposing items as they went. Their business name was originally Lupine, named after the flower, but Lori’s mom asked them to change it to The Artful Attic as a tribute to her grandparents.

Stop by and check them both out – treasures of all sorts at both!  Great gift ideas at both these locations!

​Sylvie and Scott’s Travel Blog - Ditch the Map

We arrived in Camas, Washington in the evening and were immediately delighted by the quaint downtown. Here we found the well-maintained tree-lined streets aglow with soft rope-lights. We intended for Camas to be our home base while exploring Portland, only a 25-minute drive away. However, Camas quickly charmed us in its own right offering curb appeal, a diversity of restaurants and brewpubs and ease of walkability.

Our Lodging at Camas Hotel

​The historic Camas Hotel sits proudly on the corner of main street right in the middle of downtown.  We were greeted by the friendly hotel staff, offered a coupon booklet with local deals and a parking pass valid for free parking in their guest lot. ​The Camas Hotel conveniently offers rooms for all budgets. We tried both the European style bedroom and en-suite bedroom during our stay.  Both rooms were clean and comfortable with coffee, seating areas, and thoughtful small touches highlighting the history of the area. Each floor of the hotel features a community kitchenette stocked with kitchen basics for those looking to prep their own food.
​European Style Bedroom

The European style room made us nostalgic for our travels in Europe where sharing a bathroom is a perfectly acceptable and sustainable practice. The European style rooms, sans bathroom, boast their own vanity sinks, so brushing your teeth and washing your face can done in the privacy of your own room. There are two spacious communal bathrooms on each floor, each containing a shower, sink, and toilet. We found the bathrooms clean and inviting. Not once did we experience a wait. 
Shared Bathroom
​Ensuite Bedroom

Our ensuite bedroom was charming with that quintessential boutique hotel feel. While having our own bathroom initially sounded convenient, after our hassle-free experience using the communal bathrooms, we found the private bathroom to be superfluous. For those planning to spend the bulk of their days getting out and exploring Camas and Portland the absence of a private bathroom will largely go unnoticed!
Continental ​Breakfast

Continental breakfast was served each morning in the sunny second floor atrium. The tasty breakfast spread includes cereals, fruits, eggs, yogurt, toast, pastries, juice, coffee, and teas. Over coffee we chatted with friendly guests who remarked on their pleasant stay.

Review By Cynthia Jackson, cjn
The Camas Hotel indeed A luxury Boutique Hotel
Among my favorite places in the world are the beautiful, historic Camas and Washougal, Washington located along the exceptionally magnificent and breath-taking Columbia River Gorge, near Vancouver, Washington. I lived between the two towns as a little child, and have longed to return.
You can imagine my exuberance at discovering the equally magnificent Camas Hotel right downtown Camas, Washington. 

My sister and I checked in one evening for a three nights stay. It was in the month of October  and even though it was “off season” We were welcomed to our Queen Luxury Suite with what I consider unusual warmth and kindness. The friendly staff pampered us the whole time we were there. The room was exquisite, and very clean. White robes were waiting for us in the bathroom.
Also, we really enjoyed the heart-warming street view out our window.
You would never know it was “off Season” by the awesome complimentary brunch and great food we were served in the Atrium every day.
What an experience! We will definitely revisit The Camas-Luxury Boutique Hotel, again soon! This place is definitely a 10!

Can you spot a difference? This picture was taken of the front desk attendant in early 1900's. This modern historic hotel has come a long way since 1911!  #camaswashington #historicbuilding #travelpacificnorthwest
