Ideally located at the entrance of the city’s downtown district, Coast Wenatchee Center Hotel places the best of the area right at your doorstep.  

Spend an afternoon swimming or rafting on the Columbia River, or wander along the Apple Capital Loop Trail.

Oenophiles can take a day trip to one of the wineries near Lake Chelan or check out the Wenatchee Downtown Wine Walk in Autumn.

If you’re fortunate enough to here during the spring, you can catch a glimpse of the beautiful apple blossoms that appear throughout town. The Washington State Apple Blossom Festival is a can’t-miss event, too!
