Hotel Construction, Notes from the GM

New Hotel, New Logo, New Look!

Aug 01, 2009

The Grand Hotel is just weeks from opening and the excitement is building!  Below are a few images of our new logo, new signs on the building, and a sneak-preview of the lobby.

This is the logo that we will use most of the time, showing the Grand Hotel shield with script below.  Advertising, signage, etc. will contain this logo.

From time to time we will use the shield alone, or the scrip alone.  Freeway signage, for example, will likely display one or the other.

This picture shows the sign that faces north being installed.  On two sides of the building the signage reads “The Grand Hotel”.  These signs will be outlined with red lighting at night, and viewable from Interstate 5 northbound and southbound.

The lobby in progress.  The wallpaper is amazing, and behind me is a beautiful two-story fireplace that reaches from floor to ceiling.

We plan on being open mid-August and are taking reservations now.  Please call us toll-free at 866-968-5757 or email us at reservations@grandhotelbridgeport.com to inquire about reservations.

Grand Hotel at Bridgeport Construction- Aerial Shot

May 13, 2009

Here is what the Grand Hotel in Bridgeport Village looks like from the air (click to enlarge):

For reference, Interstate 5 is visible just off the bottom right corner of this picture.  At the top of the photo are our neighbors to the North, Whole Foods Market, and to the left is REI and several other of our new neighbors, including Velocity Sports and others.

Also pictured here at the top right corner is the retail center that hosts Starbucks Coffee, Sushi Hana and Jared Galleria of Jewelry.  PF Chang’s and the rest of Bridgeport Village Shopping is located just above this picture.

In fact, the shiny blacktop in front of the hotel is Hazelfern Rd.  A 5 minute walk on this road leads directly into the heart of Bridgeport Village Shopping.  We are the only hotel located in Bridgeport Village and within walking distance of the shopping.

Grand Hotel at Bridgeport – Construction Pictures

Apr 07, 2009

We’re so excited about our beautiful hotel opening in Bridgeport Village that we couldn’t resist posting some pictures of the construction.  Here are a few shots:

Grand Hotel Bridgeport Construction - Exterior

This shot shows the exterior of the building from SW Hazel Fern Road, the street that is being lengthened to reach the hotel.  For those of you familiar with  Bridgeport Village Shopping, this is the street that leads directly into the shopping area past PF Chang’s.   Directly behind the photographer is Noah’s Bagels, Starbucks,  and a great sushi restaurant called Sushi Land.  A few of us managers ate there the other day and I think they’ll get to know us by name shortly.

From the left side you can see that the hotel will be four stories.  This is the view  standing at the Claim Jumper restaurant in Tualatin looking across SW Lower Boones Ferry Road.  We are very excited about the hotel’s location because not only is it an ideal location for easy access to shopping and eating, but it is also very easily accessible via Interstate 5.  Business travelers will have quick and easy access to the hotel from virtually any business in the area.

Grand Hotel at Bridgeport - Lobby-to-be

This is the lobby as you walk into the front doors of the hotel.  The front desk is off to the left (under the gray beam) and the gift shop is directly next to it on the right.  You can see the beginnings of the balcony that will overlook the lobby.  Underneath the balcony is the entrance to the hallway where guests will access guest suites, pool, workout room and the executive board room.  To the right (between the scissor lifts), you can make out the entrance to our meeting room.

These are a few of my favorite shots.  Please check back with us soon!  We will also be updating our pictures at flickr on a regular basis at http://www.flickr.com/photos/grandhotelbridgeport/.
