Cause for Celebration! The Grand Hotel at Bridgeport Celebrates Grand Opening

Sep 18, 2009

The Guests Were Warmly Greeted by the Bridgeport Staff

Guests Mingling in the Front Lobby

We are proud to report our very first official event, The Grand Opening Celebration of The Grand Hotel at Bridgeport, was a big success! Clients, vendors, representatives from the Phoenix Grand Hotel, executives and others in attendance experienced the brand new hotel for the first time as they mingled through our beautifully decorated lobby and toured the luxurious rooms, business facilities, the indoor pool, hot tub, and more.   We hosted the celebration on Thursday September 17 and party guests were treated to delicious hors d’oeuvres from Bentley’s Grill, sushi, beer and wine.

We marked the occasion with a ribbon cutting ceremony and General Manager, Josh Sanders was beaming with pride as he spoke and mingled among the crowd.  “The hotel staff has accomplished a great deal these past few months- opening a brand new hotel is a big undertaking; and it was a wonderful experience to finally show off the achievements to the public” says Sanders. We look forward to you staying here and experience this luxurious hotel for yourself!
