With every new My Place Hotel comes an opportunity to learn about the culture and values of the communities where we operate. Maybe it’s the stunning scenery that surrounds the growing community or maybe it’s community’s exuberant personalities, but our trip to Vancouver for the groundbreaking of Washington’s fourth My Place Hotel on March 10, 2020 was like no other.
Whether you’re taking in scenic views of the Columbia River, simply taking a trip to metropolitan Portland, or heading north to the Cascades or Seattle, chances are you’ve passed through the enchanting city of Vancouver which lies directly north of the Washington-Oregon border.
While often confused with the synonymous British Columbian city which lies 300 miles directly north, Vancouver stands in a league of its own with an atmosphere that is alive as the surroundings are green.
With time to explore the Vancouver and the Greater Portland-Vancouver Metropolitan area the moment they arrived, the My Place HQ team took every opportunity they could to take in the lush scenery that has made the Pacific Northwest so famous. Even the interstate boasts beautiful views of iconic destinations like the Columbia River Gorge and Multnomah Falls.
With the groundbreaking fast approaching, the My Place HQ Team joined Pacific NW Vancouver, LLC.’s Joe Dinger on-site of the future My Place Hotel at 8300 NE Vancouver Mall Loop Rd.
With a sublime proximity to the Vancouver Mall and a great variety of local dining and retail establishments, it was clear that the future hotel will have high visibility in its market, providing great value to the area’s unique base of visitors.
Soon the ceremony commenced where attendees had the pleasure of hearing from John McDonagh, CEO of the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce who had many inspiring words to share about the prospect of My Place making its debut in the diverse and growing community of Vancouver.
