Perfect Vintage 70s Glam Experience" In an era where all the cool hotels built in the car-frenzied era of the 1940's through the 1970's get stripped of their character and replaced with "modern" amenities, it's tremendous to see a hotel that embraces it's past. In the case of the Ashland Hills Hotel, it's the glamorous side of the 1970's. With many of the original light fixtures, artwork and geometric, open beam architecture, this hotel represents a perfect value. We stayed in the hotel twice within a week on our road trip, and both times had a fantastic experience
The rooms are "modern" and well-appointed, the lobby is stylish and welcoming and the folks at the front desk were really friendly. The restaurant was being remodeled while we were there, but upstairs from the lobby there was a nice free continental breakfast. The vintage enthusiast in me enjoyed exploring the conference room area where much of the original design elements endure. The big hall has some of the most beautiful lightning I've ever seen. While it's located right on the highway as you cruise into town, it's convenient enough to downtown Ashland (5 min), and 2 minute drive to Caldera Brewing Co where we ate. Twice.
