Hotels >Salish Lodge & Spa
Great Rooms and food - terrible service. Went for a Valentine's present - room and spa treatments for my wife and I. Ordered room service - which was expensive, and the food was great. But they did not bring water, bread, or anything but the meals ordered, and tacked on a room service charge. When asked if there was anything else we needed, and we said water, they though we were kidding and did not bring it. The Spa felt very rushed. So many people were there for the 6:30 spot, we could not even sit down in the waiting area - not very relaxing. Needless to say, after three visits to the lodge and spa - this one was our last.
Incredible. This by far is my favorite place to go to relax or enjoy a fine dinner. I have been constantly going to the Salish for about 2 years now and have never been disappointed. I have been reading the reviews and one said that the rooms were chilly. The rooms all have fireplaces and adjustable heat. My boyfriend and I, however invited the air and made the fireplace (which has quickstart logs) to embrace the warmth of the fireplace. However, if you prefer you can also just turn up the heat. The dinner experience has always been amazing (I have always requested R.D. as the waiter) and has never steered my boyfriend and I wrong. Now the spa. Best river rock hot stone massage ever. They put these little stones in between your toes and you feel like you're in heaven. The place is a little expensive, but in my belief 100% worth it. We once took a limo up there and needed hiking boots they volunteered to drive down for us and pick up some shoes it we gave them our shoe sizes..instead we had them drive us down there and it was completely complimentary. I also set up reservations for my friend (who was leaving for Iraq) and his girlfirend. When I told them why this dinner was important to them they set the table up with flowers and had them sit in the private dining room also complimentary. I have never seen a resort go thru so much for the customer. This place is amazing if you're down to earth and just want to go relax.
Great Dining Experience!.
I have been here a few times and Salish Dining Room (for dinner) is one of the top places I've been to. It's definitely my favorite dining experience around the Seatlle area and really one of my favorites overall. It's expensive, but the tasting menu is really fantastic. Everything on the plate has a purpose and melds perfectly.
We had the tasting, which is expensive but IMO worth it. Our waiter, R.D. (the only waiter I have ever requested) puts it together for us after asking our preferences, so it's a complete surprise when we are served. Of the 6 courses, 3 particularly stood up. The beet salad is terrific. The glazed nuts and the greens go extremely well with the beets. The kobe beef carpaccio melts in your mouth. And the scallop appetizer with mushrooms was the best scallop I've ever had.
Other things that I've had in the past that have been great are the bisques, the hot rocks, and the buffalo filet.
Dessert hasn't been the greatest. I should also note that I've been to their breakfast a couple of times and I think it is completely overrated and not even in the same ballpark as their dinners.
Very good menu, but overall Salish Lodge was just ok.
Finally went to Salish Lodge after hearing so much about it. Don't get me wrong, this place is definitely worth a try at least once and I can see why some absolutely love it. For me, there were a couple disappointments, and for the price, there are places in Seattle I prefer (no, not the Met).
First, and this is just a personal thing, I like servers who are "real." I don't like waiters who talk like the pink panther and tell me how "beautiful" the dishes are.
Second, the ambiance was a little weird. The rooms are broken into small sections, which I suppose are "intimate," but the room was dead silent, even with other diners. I felt like I had to wisper and I could hear every fork clanking. Kind of creepy, but maybe it was just a strange set of quiet couples, who knows.
As for the food. The rabbit was really good and my wife's chicken dish was also very tasty. I had a side of wild mushrooms that were extremely salty, but other than that, the food was pretty darn good. If it were not for the price, I would even give this place 4 stars, but for the cost, I can find better.
Long story short - if you haven't been, give it a try at least once. Great views of the falls. Be ready to plunk down at least 100 bucks a head.
Salish is not a dish!.
I brought my mother from out of town to have dinner at your establishment today. We ordered the Oysters that came with 5 for two people.
The oysters were good. We both ordered the Trout with fava beans and potatoes. The trouble was the plate was missing the fava beans and we both got half a small dried up piece of meat that had an abundance of oil.
We told the waitress about the beans and she brought us one small plate with some peas and green beans microwaved dry with butter that we had to share. I then ordered more oysters and they were good but scarce.
We were then rewarded with a cream brule that was...well, not to standard.
Mohitos were good!, I had 2 and my mother 2 glasses of house merlot.View was great! Thanks goodness for the bread or we would have left very hungry.
The waitress was nice her name was Joan, but the presentation was not delivered worth the $160 I spent.
I would recommend tightening up the crew with some extra training.
Your establishment was recommended by a friend of mine but at this time, I personally wouldn't recomend it to anybody at this point.
I'm not one of those people that go around bitching to get something for free. I truly did see deficiencies.
MOST romantic and relaxing weekend getaway!!!. OMG my boyfriend took me there and the dinner there couldn't be better. We had the six course dinner and everything was soooo delicious!!! The wine expert was helpful in finding us the perfect wine for our dinner. Our suite had two jacuzzis in it and the view was amazing. A breath of fresh natural air and a beautiful view. The staff there were sooo friendly. I was hungry at 2 am and the room service had closed at like 1 or so but we still called to see if they would just do us a favor and the staff was able to deliver us room service. DON'T FORGET about the massages there because they are THE BEST!!! It was the best experience ever!!!
A great way to spend a special night or weekend. My husband and I had a great stay at the Salish. We were impressed with the rooms, the service, the views and we had a wonderful breakfast at the Dining Room. We only wished we had more time. I would check in right at 4 PM in order to spend as much time enjoying the room, grounds and the spa. We had dessert and drinks in the Attic Bar and it was also very good. I can't think of a single complaint to comment on!
Great place for a quick weekend away from Seattle. My partner and I just did a weekend trip hear to relax and refresh after the seattle winter blues. It was an awesome expirience, and the spa was wonderful. We refreshed there and camped out in our amazing room to catch up on rest also. All in all a great time.
So romantic! Best 2-person jacuzzi in room!. The place is so romantic and everyone is so helpful. The whole experience is awesome. I had wine waiting in the room when i got there, flower petals on the bed after I came back from dinner. Anything you need, they will get for you. Service is great and the place is so clean. The tub is for two people, and they have cool lights and nice jets to relax away stress. I probably had 3-4 baths a day just because it was so relaxing. You can also take a short hike down to the bottom of snoqualmie falls and back up to the hotel. It's a little expensive, but totally worth it!
