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.

The town of Hood River Oregon is located 60 miles east of Portland on Interstate 84 in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge Scenic Area. The area is rich in natural resources with agriculture, timber and recreation as the major sources of economic activity. Fruit grown in the Hood River Valley is of such exceptional quality that the county leads the world in Anjou pear production.

The climate in Hood River is mild with less than half the annual rainfall of Portland. (more…)
