A timeless encounter of heritage, beauty, and serene splendor.

What it's like

Built in 1907 and protected under the National Register of Historic Places, the Balch is an iconic hotel steeped in PNW history that offers guests a truly memorable hotel experience, completely opposite of what you'll find in a cookie-cutter corporate chain hotel. Casual elegance, historic charm, and plenty of character come together to create an inspiring stay filled with pure relaxation and deep connection.

Independent spirit

Always magical, never mundane.

Small touches

With cozy beds, premium toiletries, and of course magnificent views, you'll have everything you need to unplug and unwind. And while the rooms are refreshingly free of phones, alarm clocks, and televisions, there is high-speed WiFi across the property, so you can stay as connected as you'd like on your own devices during your stay.

Eat and drink

Start your day with a deliciously rustic breakfast featuring homemade breads, granola, and seasonal fruit, complimented by the finest coffee from local roasters and artisan teas. The breakfast will be conveniently packaged in a basket that you can take to your room, the Bistro, or the outdoor patio. In the evening, treat yourself to the unique farm-to-table experience at the Balch Bistro & Bar. Delight in locally-sourced, organic selections that capture the essence of the Pacific Northwest.

And more

Find your bliss at the Balch with a visit to the hotel's spa. Offering a full range of body, wellness, and energy-healing treatments that you may not find anywhere else, the spa will leave you feeling rejuvenated in mind, body, and spirit.
