The only thing better this summer than reserving a room or suite at the Grand Hotel is saving money on a unique Oregon adventure with a Grand Hotel package. Packages combine our luxurious guest rooms and suites with some of the best that the Bridgeport, Tigard and Tualatin areas have to offer.
We are very excited to introduce our new Up, Up, and Away! package this summer. We partnered with Pacific Peaks Balloons to offer guests a breath-taking hot air balloon adventure through October 2011 (weather permitting).

Congrats to our very own Amber Templeton and Kayla Strauch and from the Salem Oregon Convention Center for their stellar performance in Sunday’s Dragon Boat Races at the World Beat Festival in downtown Salem, Oregon!
Twenty-nine teams competed in the 2011 World Beat Dragon Boat Races. Looks like they had some fun! Way to represent The Grand Hotel at Bridgeport Amber!
During the mild Oregon summer months, hopping on your bicycle and hitting one of the many bike paths and trails in our region is nothing less than blissful. Bicycling is one of the most popular activies among outdoor enthusiasts in the area, and there is no shortage of trails and rentals! The warm weather combined with miles and miles of beautiful countryside are ideal for cyclists of all abilities.
Here are some tips for cyclists who want to experience the great outdoors- Oregon style:
