The Cannery Pier Hotel could only exist in Astoria, Oregon, the oldest settlement West of the Rockies. Founded in 1811 by John Jacob Astor, the city of Astoria is located in the culturally and geographically-rich Northwest corner of Oregon where the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean meet. With its diverse ship traffic and Victorian homes, and a history built on trees, fish, and water,
vibrant Astoria embraces its past while it enjoys its status as a unique Northwest Community
A city with a population of 10,000 people, Astoria has enough to culturally please yet still give a small-town atmosphere.. Enjoy an opera or concert at the Liberty Theater, explore the end of the Lewis and Clark Trail at the Lewis and Clark National Park, or watch the sea lions along the Riverfront Walk connecting the Cannery Pier Hotel to Astoria's National Downtown Historic District and beyond.
Unlike other Oregon Hotels, the Cannery Pier Hotel not only blends history with luxury but it also encompasses the unique and extraordinary history of Astoria, on the North Oregon Coast.
