Local Luxury Lodge will be Launched at Columbia Point

American Lending Center, LLC (ALC) is pleased to announce the opening of their latest hotel investment project, The Lodge at Columbia Point in Richland, WA. On Friday, September 15th, at 4:00pm, The Lodge will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony alongside members of the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce. The ceremony will open with words from Elisabeth Holt, Member Development Director of the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce, followed by a Special Presentation of Proclamation from representatives of the City of Richland, and close with a ribbon cutting and picture opportunity with board members, public officials, and ambassadors.

The Lodge (530 Columbia Point Drive, Richland, WA 99352) is a luxury wine-themed hotel with 82 rooms and suites overlooking the Columbia River. Each of the 82 rooms is named after a winery to continue with the boutique hotel’s unique theme. The Lodge holds a complimentary wine social hour each evening and boasts a magnificent wine tasting room for those interested in celebrating the local wines and winemakers of the region. After savoring the local vino, guests may stroll along the Riverfront Trail that connects the hotel with three of the area’s best restaurants, take a tour of the Hop Museum, or check out the Manhattan Project National Historical Park. Guests with dreams of one day becoming well-versed sommeliers will enjoy touring the Columbia Point neighborhood for its nearly 200 wineries within tasting distance.

Additional amenities include a pool and spa, lending library, reading room with a fireplace, massage studio, fitness center, and outdoor fire pit on a riverview deck. All rooms suites are outfitted with private patios, expansive views of mother nature, spa-inspired bathrooms, wine racks, wet bars, Wi-Fi, and flat screen TVs.

After two years of construction and a $2 million fund from ALC, hotel managers Tom Drumheller and Bob Naito are thrilled to finally welcome guests into their beautiful waterfront hotel. Drumheller is the CEO of Escape Lodging of Cannon Beach and manages several highly-esteemed hotels and restaurants in the Pacific Northwest. Naito has over 35 years of experience in real estate development and manages Naito Development, which specializes in the overhaul of historic buildings. Together, they have nearly 70 years of hospitality management experience between them. As one reviewer at The Oregonian noted, there is no doubt there will be a whole new level of hospitality to the Tri-City area.

Bruce Thompson, ALC President and former Region IX Administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), remarked, “We are proud and honored to be part of this beautiful project. This will add to the economy through visitors coming not only to visit this hotel but also the entire Tri-City community.”
