One of southern Oregon’s most famous landmarks, the Ashland Springs Hotel was opened in 1925, serving as an elegant and luxurious retreat for travelers to the Northwest. The rooms at this historic hotel, which was renovated in 2000, are tasteful and stylish, with family options including the parlor suite with one king and one sofa bed, or the spacious double-queen room (also featuring a pull-out sofa).
After you arrive, relax with a hot shower complete with complimentary lavender tea bath amenities, then bundle up to dry off in a provided bathrobe. Coffee pots, mini-fridges, and non-feather bedding are all available on request. Other complimentary amenities available to hotel guests include onsite parking, a daily continental breakfast, and free Wi-Fi.
Kids will love the huge, two-story lobby, with its massive fireplace, surrounded by balconies on three sides where you can eat breakfast or just sit and relax. Parents will love the prime downtown location, close to the Shakespeare Festival, as well as shops and restaurants. Also, children under the age of 12 stay free. One thing to keep in mind is that there’s no pool and not much in the way of areas for kids to run around or play, so if yours are young and energetic, they may prefer a hotel with a less formal atmosphere.

Simple with old fashion style, this hotel takes you back in time. It is centrally located with and excellent restaurant, the Lark, on the premise. A perfect location to explore Ashland and enjoy the Shakespeare plays.
This hotel is charming and comfortable, and my corner room on the fourth floor was quite large. Its heritage status is well merited, and the fact that there was a '1920's' movie being shot in the elegant lobby when I was staying there was not surprising! Noise from the street was almost non-existent, and there were plenty of places on various floors to sit, have your coffee, and read the paper.
Any room at the front has a glorious view of the Ashland Hills, and the several Oregon Shakespeare Festival theatres, as well as a large number of shops, are a five minute walk away.
