Audio Visual Design, the Oxford Hotel Group, and Hospitality
Have you ever stayed at one of the hotels in the Oxford Hotel Group? If not, I encourage you to enjoy one of their locations in Oregon, Washington, Idaho or California. If yes, then you have most likely experienced their commitment to hospitality in all areas – lodging, dining, and also, audio visual surroundings.
This 2015 Project Highlight was my professional dream come true. In 1994, I started in the Hotel Industry taping down cords for audio visual events in a Ritz Carlton. Fast forward a couple decades — I had the opportunity to work beside the Oxford Hotel Group as they built a hotel from the ground up in Bellingham, Washington. Personally and professionally, I felt a bit spoiled working on this project since they owned their own Cessna (which delivered me to the site within forty-five minutes from Bend!).
This Project Highlight consisted of a complete design package including drawings and scope documentation for audio visual support in these spaces:
• two joining meeting rooms,
• one boardroom,
• a lobby video wall,
• hallway signage,
• a restaurant, and
• a fitness room.
Audio Visual Bend handled every phase from the design, prewire, installation, programming and all the final details, including training the staff. The following pictures will tell the rest of the story.
This is a “must stay-in” hotel; check out the reviews on the Facebook page. Thank you, Oxford Hotel Group, for your confidence in my abilities. This hotel turned out beautifully, all around. It is the epitome of hospitality – the generous and friendly treatment of visitors and guests.
Loving my job!
