Hotel Windrow

Reinvented hometown hotel with historic Ellensburg roots and thoughtful design.

Founded by a veteran hotelier with a passion for community and a heart for rural Washington, Hotel Windrow is named after an agricultural term referring to the way that Central Washington hay farmers cut their crops, in critical wind-based formations, or “wind rows.” Windrows force hay into a period of rest -- and it’s this central concept that informs the philosophy of this historic hotel. This is a place that’s absolutely committed to your relaxation -- from specially designed pillow top beds, to a personalized experience that exceeds all of your expectations.

What it's like

Bridging the gap between rural hospitality and urban luxury, Hotel Windrow is at once welcoming and inspiring. Every corner of this property exudes warmth; from the rich earthy tones to the ready smiles you’ll receive from the helpful staff. Highlighting the theme of “style meets history,” some of the brick is original brickwork from the Elks Building. Look out the windows and be inspired by views of the Kittitas Valley and Downtown Ellensburg, as well as the small-town sunsets that give this area such a distinct sense of place.
