The new Lodge at Columbia Point in Richland is scheduled to open in May.
The waterfront hotel features 82 guest rooms and suites, each named for a winery in the surrounding area.
Located at 530 Columbia Point Drive, the 62,773-square-foot hotel features rooms ranging in price from $159 to $429 a night. A gourmet breakfast buffet is included in the room cost.
Tom Drumheller and Bob Nato are building the hotel.
Drumheller is CEO of Cannon Beach-based Escape Lodging, which also owns Cousin’s Restaurant, Tri-Cities; Cousin’s Country Inn and Restaurant, The Dalles Oregon; The Ocean Lodge, Inn at Cannon Beach, Oregon; and numerous other lodging properties and restaurants in Oregon and Washington.
The Tri-Cities is primed for a boutique winery-themed hotel, hotel officials said.
“We have some great chains in the area but Tri-Cities needs the boutique hotel to take lodging to the next level of ‘experience,’” said Wendy Higgins, general manager of The Lodge at Columbia Point.
Vancouver-based Integrity Structures is the general contractor. Abbott Architecture, based in Woodinville, is the architect.
