Something Beautiful Is Building: Final Phase of a Holistic Renovation

Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa, an iconic luxury hotel built on century-old pier pilings extending 600 feet into the Columbia River, completed the first phase of its holistic transformation in March 2022. The reimagined renovation touches nearly every aspect of the hotel, keeping the one thing that cannot be improved – the magnificent view in every room and everywhere in the hotel. Cannery Pier will create a new level of service with enhancements that include complete renovations to the hotel's guest rooms, a wholly reimagined fitness studio, upgraded event spaces, a Hall of History expanded with exhibits paying homage to Astoria’s unique history as the former salmon and tuna canneries capital of the world and the hotel’s connection to the community. The hotel also features local artists from its inaugural “Icon of Astoria” contest with the winning art pieces displayed at the hotel.
