The newest Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites opened its doors in Hermiston, Ore., on Dec. 7. Located at the intersection of U.S. Highway 395 and W. Hermiston Ave., the hotel is in the heart of downtown—a perfect location.

InnSight Hotel Management Group will manage the 93-room, four-story hotel. It features a number of amenities, including 18 suites, an indoor pool, fitness center, complimentary breakfast service, a meeting room, a business center and guest laundry facilities.

The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Hermiston is located across the street from Hermiston Brewing Co. and close to the Eastern Oregon Trade and Event Center. The hotel is officially open for booking.

How are we doing? Pretty good. That was the bottom-line assessment that was shared with the nearly 600 tourism and professionals who attended Visit Seattle’s Annual Outlook Meeting at the Westin Seattle on March 31.

Some highlights from the 2021 study showed:

 

A big part of what imbues a destination with a sense of place and makes it memorable are its small locally owned businesses.  A new partnership between Visit Seattle and Seattle Bank is designed to support these businesses and bring tourism revenue to Seattle’s emerging neighborhoods. The inaugural grant program will invest in 20 local businesses, focusing on establishments owned by women, people of color and LGBTQ+ community members in the easily accessible Central District and Chinatown-International District neighborhoods.
