“Our 50th anniversary stay in Ashland was wonderful. Thank you for your recommendations and assistance. This was the first time we planned activities and reservations ahead of our stay based on your recommendations. You were absolutely right. It is much better to work through you in advance. Everything went smoothly…our Oregon Shakespeare package play tickets were in our hotel packet and your list of restaurants and events was much appreciated. You must have mentioned our 50th anniversary to the restaurants, as we were treated royally. Thank you for making our anniversary special. Our trips to Ashland Springs Hotel are always delightful. On our next visit, again, we will contact you ahead of time to plan our stay. Sincerely,”

“Excellent Staff” Cancelled flights caused longer stay than expected. The staff was so good to us. Given our circumstances, the staff made what could have been a very unpleasant stay, pleasant and comfortable. And the concierge is a sweet informative and very helpful woman who knows all the ins and outs. She guided us to some great places and off the beaten path finds-that kept us busy during our stay. One of the very best concierge’s I have ever had-So really-great staff in the Ashland Springs Hotel.”
“Months late but I wanted to thank you for the great kindness you showed me when my husband and I took refuge in the lobby after the death of our son. We were in such shock. You settled us and gave us coffee, most importantly, allowed us space to grieve in that cocooning, comforting place. Bless you. Thank you.

Again, Thank you!”
“Thank you for assisting us last night! We are the two Lincoln High School teachers that left our 50 tickets for Hamlet at our hotel. After dining with you, we stopped at your desk to ask about a cab, after asking us more questions, you knew we could have the tickets reprinted . You were our angel! You knew that we could have them printed, called the Shakespeare box office, had them print our tickets, and saved us a round trip cab ride! Thank you so much for helping us last night.”

Best concierge ever: I want to tip my hat to Donna “Gigi” LaRossa, the Concierge at the Ashland Springs Hotel. While everyone we met in Ashland, from the hotel personnel to our waiters and waitresses to the ushers at the Shakespeare Festival, was charming, friendly and helpful, Gigi really outshone them all. So amazingly concerned and kind and knowledgeable about everything Ashland. She really exemplified the very best of the hospitality industry, and did everything she could to help us make the most out of our stay. The Ashland Springs Hotel is lucky to have such a dedicated professional on their staff, and we are grateful we met her – she helped us plan our trip and made our stay in Ashland run smoothly (not always easy when traveling with a 91-year-old in a wheelchair). Gigi is a real delight, and I highly recommend consulting her when staying at the Ashland Springs.
~Guest from La Jolla, CA
My Dear Gigi,
Thank you for a wonderful lunch and gracious tour of your lovely hotel. I was genuinely impressed with your property! Yours is a truly first rate gem! And they are fortunate to have such an outgoing, enthusiastic spokesperson as you to represent them – A task which you do with distinction. You have the innate soul for services that is the trademark of all the best concierges. It is a skill that cannot be taught or learned – it is simply something one either has or doesn’t. Nurture and foster this ability, and try to spark it in others. And above all – enjoy it., For you have found your life’s passion and the world will be better because of it. The many guests you have touched and the many still to come – have had their experience transformed from mere overnight accommodations to something so memorable they will cherish forever, and that my dear, is what it’s all about! Keep up the great work. At Your Service,
~Rees Irwin, President of the Portland Concierge Association, January 2012
Wanted to pass onto you how wonderful my daughter’s and my experience was paragliding this past Saturday!! I tell you what – we were flying with ROCKSTAR pilots in Christian and Nick ( I believe I have that second name right). They were wonderful and the experience was something I will never forget!!! I would most highly recommend both of them to any of your clients!!! Christian is not a man of words on the phone, but let me tell you – he knows his stuff in the air!!!! I cannot commend them more – top rate and gave us a life-altering experience!! Thanks for all your help while we were staying at Ashland Springs – top rate hotel with top rate personnel.
My husband and I were guests at your hotel last week. We were really impressed with the excellent service provided to us by Gigi, your Concierge. She offered us wonderful suggestions for our intown stay, and made several good recommendations. Please thank her for us. Becky’s pies were not to be missed, and they didn’t disappoint. Also, she left us a message in Portland regarding Symphony tickets there which we were able to purchase. She was the consummate professional. Every hotel would be well served by a concierge such as she, enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
It was wonderful meeting you Gigi. Your suggestions were terrific! The overview of your beautiful city of Ashland brought us all to places and sights that we may never have experienced without your direction. Continue your beautiful work. It’s people like you who make our world a better place to live.
~Jim and Dana
Thank you so much for your professional and friendly help to make our Ashland weekend unexpectedly fun! The disappointment and inconvenience we experienced due to the Varsity Theatre’s film schedule error was put to rest by your efforts to secure us tickets at the Camelot to see a wonderful production of “I hate Hamlet”. We laughed so much and gained a new “must-do” theatre venue that will surely bring us to Ashland more often. And our dining at the Larks’ bar was perfect and delicious! Thanks too, for amusing us at 5:30pm with a spot in the restaurant.
Thank you so much Gigi for all the great advice and tips about Ashland and the surrounding area. We had a great stay and look forward to seeing you again soon!
~Lisa and Pat
You were born to be a Concierge with your sparkling personality! Thank you for being so helpful to us to explore the wineries! Our friends from California were impressed by your knowledge, as were we. They plan to see us next year in Ashland – Thanks to you!
