A Valentine to Tigard, Oregon

Dec 28, 2012

Our Tigard setting lets the Grand Hotel Bridgeport fill a special niche for business and leisure travel to the Portland Oregon metropolitan area. While the hotel is a short drive from the bustle of Portland’s downtown commercial and shopping districts, we enjoy Tigard’s peaceful, small-town atmosphere. It is important to us that our guests and our staff alike can enjoy the warm, friendly community that has been our home for many years.

For our guests, shopping at Tigard is worth the trip itself. The markets of Bridgeport Village, a stone’s throw from our hotel, draws visitors from around the Northwest with its diverse restaurants; upscale retailers like Saks, Apple Store and Crate and Barrel; specialty salons, an IMAX theater and a charming old-world design. At Washington Square in downtown Tigard, visitors can shop at Nordstrom, Coach and many others. Unlike downtown Portland, parking is a cinch and the markets are easy to navigate.

Our town is home to so much. Oregon has an outstanding reputation as home to some of the best artisan beers in the nation, and Tigard is no exception.  We are particularly fond of McMenamins’ John Barleycorns brewery and Max’s Fanno Creek Brew Pub.  Golfers enjoy Tigard’s Summerfield course and the RedTail course in nearby Beaverton.  Tigard’s cultural offerings rival those of neighboring Portland with fun experiences like the Broadway Rose Theater Company and the Lakewood Center for the Arts. And each June, Tigard hosts the unforgettable Festival of Balloons, an annual weekend celebration of air balloons with carnival rides, a fun-run, ribs and music.

Tigard is a business-friendly, thriving community perfectly situated outside of one of the West’s favorite cities.  It has treated us well over the years and we are proud to call it our home.

Now celebrating its 60th anniversary, the historic Lakewood Center for the Arts of Lake Oswego is a fixture of the Portland Oregon arts scene. The ongoing 2012-2013 main stage lineup offers a diverse arrangement of hit plays and classic musicals. There is still time to book seats for Irving Berlin’s iconic White Christmas. In January, the Company begins its run of Grand Hotel (no relation!), the 1989 Broadway musical about the intersecting stories of eccentric characters at an elegant 1928 Berlin hotel. Next, the Company presents Neil Simon’s Rumors, a farcical comedy of manners, followed the whimsical 1983 Tony Award winning play, La Cage Aux Folles. We are privileged to have this Portland Oregon cultural institution so nearby.
