Bend, Oregon (July 2, 2018) - Best Western Hotels & Resorts today announced the opening of its newest upscale property, the Best Western Premier Peppertree Inn at Bend, in the pristinely beautiful town of Bend, Oregon, also known to travelers as the “Outdoor Playground of the West.”
“Best Western is excited to partner with an experienced and successful owner who has developed multiple Best Western properties, this time in the beautiful city of Bend, Oregon,” said Ron Pohl, Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer for Best Western Hotels & Resorts. “The Best Western Premier Peppertree Inn at Bend is an outstanding hotel that is sure to make our guests’ stay in the mountains a memorable one.”
In tune with nature but urban at heart, the brand-new Best Western Premier Peppertree Inn at Bend is designed for travelers of all types. The hotel’s sleek, industrial and modern 89 guest rooms and 30 suites are accented with warm wood tones and natural elements. Many of the suites include fireplaces, balconies, and sleeper sofas, providing guests with an optimal place to relax and recharge. The hotel also offers sought-after amenities including a pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, and an on-site restaurant- ZPizza Tap Room - which uses only premium ingredients in their menu items and serves more than 20 local microbrews.
Perfectly situated, the Best Western Premier Peppertree Inn at Bend offers outstanding views of the surrounding mountains and city skyline and is close to popular local destinations such as Tumalo State Park, Pilot Butte Volcano State Scenic Viewpoint, Old Mill District, Mount Bachelor, downtown Bend and the Cascades campus of Oregon State University.
With its proximity to major outdoor attractions, and its position as the closest major brand hotel to Mt. Bachelor, the Best Western Premier Peppertree Inn at Bend includes special amenities for the ski and snowboard adventurers in the winter and the mountain biking enthusiasts in the summer. The hotel’s dry room enables guests to check in their wet clothing and equipment from the slopes at the end of a day, and then pick it up the next morning, dry and ready to for another day around Bend. Cyclist guests are invited to park their bikes in the hotel’s bicycle storage room and use the on-site repair center if needed.
And when guests aren’t exploring the outdoors, they can find fun indoors at the hotel’s Rogue Social Room, a multi-purpose space perfect for connecting over a cocktail or craft beer, participating in a lively game of ping pong or watching a big game on television. The 800-square-foot space also features two 70-inch televisions, a dry bar and game table, making it equally suited for company retreats, cocktail receptions, business meetings and private parties.
“At our brand-new, pet-friendly hotel, guests will experience the hallmarks of the Best Western Premier brand – superior accommodations, exceptional service and first-rate amenities,” said Chase Santillanes, Vice President of Development for the Best Western Premier Peppertree Inn at Bend. “Whether visiting Bend for business or for the array of hiking, biking and other outdoor adventures, guests will experience the detailed finishes, exceptional amenities and outstanding service that are synonymous with the Premier brand.”
