Bend’s Hotel & Convention Center recently went under extensive renovations and reopened as ‘Riverhouse on the Deschutes’ earlier this year. The property’s transformation was completed to provide guests with a more refined and delightful experience. The newly renovated location appointed Todd Cooley as new general manager.

Renovations on the property began in late 2015. The update included reconstruction of its on-site restaurant, Currents. The property will showcase authentic Northwestern flair, new amenities and beautiful views of the river.

Cooley will be in charge of leading the Riverhouse into its next chapter. He most recently served at the Salishan Spa and Gold Resort on Oregon’s Central coast and has over ten years of experience in the industry. Cooley got his start in the industry with Hilton Hotels Corporation. He is a previous recipient of Oregon Hotelier of the Year in 2002 before advancing to work at various Oregon destinations. 

The Riverhouse plans to debut its new branding, logo, and website to complete its refresh within coming months.

From making her kids’ Kraken Halloween costumes inspired by Seattle’s National Hockey League team to chasing the sun in eastern Washington looking for spots to camp, Kelly Saling’s love for the Pacific Northwest is apparent in all aspects of her life—including her career. Promoted to senior vice president and chief sales officer at Visit Seattle in September 2021, Saling pulls from this personal appreciation to plug people into the region’s array of venues, natural landscapes, and everything in between.

 

Comfortable, familiar, and adorned with the color tones and tapestries of Peru, Portland’s Andina restaurant, housed in a historic onetime abattoir and warehouse in the city’s Pearl District, serves up modern Peruvian cuisine. 

 

Built in the vision of streamline modernism and art deco in 1941, the Vogue Theatre has become a hotspot in the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment district—a region known for its progressive hospitality and historic charm. “It’s a national registered historic site in Canada,” says Matt Friesen, general manager of the theater. While it is primarily a concert venue hosting artists such as Steve Lacy and Steve Earle & The Dukes, the Vogue’s nearly 10,000 square feet of space and mission to offer the utmost friendly customer service makes it a perfect venue for your next event.
