New Hotel Coming to Bremerton

You’ll soon have another venue option when you’re looking to get away for a business retreat in Washington. Choice Hotels International, Inc. has signed an agreement with Sound West Group to develop a Cambria hotel in Bremerton, Washington. The five-story, 121-room hotel will be part of a mixed-use waterfront development on Marina Square, adjacent to the Bremerton Marina and the Kitsap Conference Center.

Scheduled to open in 2019, the Cambria Hotel Bremerton Island will feature a rooftop deck with 180-degree views of the Puget Sound, multi-function meeting space, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a pool and spa, and underground parking. The hotel will also include on-site dining.

Bremerton is located on the Kitsap Peninsula, a short, one-hour ferry ride from Seattle. If you need a little more room than the Cambria will provide, the Kitsap Conference Center has 17,000 square feet of meeting space and can host up to 700 guests. For more information on the Cambria hotel project, you can check out the video here.

Brasada Ranch, located outside of Bend, Oregon, recently unveiled new meeting venues and group experiences, expanding upon one of the most idyllic venues in the Pacific Northwest.

At Brasada Ranch, guests are inspired by the wide-open setting, sustainable and contemporary design, limitless recreation opportunities and flexible event spaces that include indoor barn venues, outdoor areas, and new spaces including The Studio and Cascade Event Lawn.

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
