The Oxford Hotel Bend has once again been voted the top lodging spot in the Source Weekly’s Best of Central Oregon. This marks the ninth year the hotel has received this honor. Winners and runner-ups in over 140 categories were announced in the Source’s September 17 issue, highlighting the top-voted businesses, services and attractions across Central Oregon.
“We want to sincerely thank our Bend community for again voting us best lodging in Central Oregon,” said Samuel Johnson, general manager of Oxford Hotel Bend. “It’s an honor to receive this news, especially with the uncertainty this year has held. We are grateful to be able to call Bend home — we love being a part of this wonderful community, and it’s a real honor to know that the feeling is mutual. We want to say thank you to everyone that voted and to the Source Weekly for fostering so much positivity during this time.”
Opened in 2010, the locally owned and operated Oxford Hotel Bend has been a prominent asset to the Central Oregon hospitality industry, offering an upscale travel experience to visitors. The hotel was recently recognized as the #6 Best Hotel in the United States in Tripadvisor’s Travelers’ Choice awards. Curt and Robin Baney, owners of the Oxford Collection of hotels, parent company of Oxford Hotel Bend, have consistently been committed to the enrichment of the community, evident in their generous contributions to the OSU-Cascades endowed faculty fund for its hospitality management program in 2016 and 2018.
