The Lodge at Columbia Point will be a riverfront, 82-room, upscale boutique hotel in Richland, Washington; the fourth largest metropolitan area in Washington state (Tri-Cities). Though the Tri-Cites markets itself as the Heart Washington Wine Country®, with more than 160 wineries located within 50 mile radius, it currently has no upscale lodging properties. Due in part to long term investments by the federal government, the community is thriving economically. Benton County has the third highest median household income in the state.
Columbia Point is an exceptional, two-acre riverfront site located on the south bank of the Columbia River, approximately three miles from the city center. The site has good visibility and convenient access from I-182 as it passes over the Columbia River approximately ½ mile to the south and enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine every year
The three-story, 82-room Lodge will be the most upscale lodging product in the Tri-Cities area. Catering to both business and leisure travelers, the hotel’s freeway visibility, waterfront location, and on-property amenities assure its competitive positioning.
