Accessibility to one of Salem, Oregon’s Best Hotels Makes Salem Convention Center Stand Out from the Rest.

by Salem Convention Center | Jan 19, 2022

“We understand that event hosts are looking for convenience, quality, and value,” says SCC’s General Manager, Chrissie Bertsch. “An all-inclusive venue like ours offers amenities that our clients cannot find anywhere else. As a result, they typically get to relax and do more with their budget.” There are seven advantages Being Connected to The Grand Hotel in Salem are:

#1 Event Attendees Move Freely from Meeting to Best Hotels Room in Minutes

Convenience and accessibility are part of the culture here in Salem, and we offer both in spades. By having The Grand Hotel in Salem attached to our facility, out-of-town presenters and event attendees can quickly move from their hotel room or suite to their event. Did you forget something or simply need a break from the action? Not a problem. You can head straight to your room and return to your meeting and/or event in minutes, without ever leaving the building. 

#2 Event Guests Will Be Pleased with their Accommodations

The newly renovated 193-room hotel is one of Willamette Valley’s finest and designed for the business traveler in mind. Each room or suite features an inviting, classically appointed living area with leather love-seat, ottoman, flat screen TV, a microwave, refrigerator, and a beautiful desk.  

We truly hope you feel like everyone feels like this when they visit our hotel! Thanks, Aaron for the kind words! We can't wait to see you next time!⠀

#3- Parking is a Breeze 

Most people do not enjoy looking for parking, especially when pressed for time. When staying in an off-site hotel, especially in larger cities, guests are often burdened with a nightly fee for parking, in addition to a daily parking fee on or near the event venue. When you attend an important meeting or special event, driving through an unfamiliar city while searching for a parking spot takes up precious time and adds stress that nobody needs. When you’re a guest of the Grand Hotel in Salem, it’s very easy to get to your event at the Salem Convention Center. Parking is FREE, and you can quickly walk to wherever you need to be during your stay.  

#4- Amazingly Convenient Location 

Salem Convention Center event attendees who stay at The Grand Hotel in Salem are just a short walk away from award-winning restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, galleries, local attractions, Salem’s famous Riverfront Park, the State Capital Building and more – and that’s just the stuff you can walk to!  Both business and leisure travelers enjoy the convenience of nearby corporate offices, the Salem Hospital, colleges and universities, as well as many Willamette Valley wineries. Click here to see local attractions and activities (perfect for groups) near The Grand Hotel in Salem.  

#5 Fantastic Hotel Amenities
