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 how Central Washington hay farmers cut their crops in critical wind-based formations, or "wind rows." Windrows force hay into a period of rest — this central concept informs the philosophy of this historic hotel. Hotel Windrow is fully committed to your relaxation — from specially designed beds to personalized experiences that exceed all expectations.
