McMenamins Old St. Francis School
Location: 700 NW Bond St, Bend, OR 97703
Hours: Monday – Sunday 8am- 10pm
Description: The Old St. Francis School, conveniently located in downtown Bend, was transformed from 1936 Catholic schoolhouse to, in 2004, a hotel complete with classrooms-turned-lodging rooms, a pub, brewery, a movie theater, private meeting/event space, live music bookings, and a fantastic soaking pool that beckons day travelers, shoppers, hikers, skiers and outdoor adventurers alike. In 2016 we completed two additional buildings – the Art House & Ed house – bringing our total number of guestrooms to 60. Optional amenities include patios, suites and kitchenettes, but all rooms have their own bathrooms. We honor the property’s former life by featuring extensive artwork that pays homage to the history of the school and the surrounding community. Photos, memorabilia, our artists’ renderings and students’ artwork adorn the walls, making the hotel a unique gallery of sorts. Take note of the unusual custom-made light fixtures and absolutely stunning tile mosaics that surround the soaking pool. And in the Art and Ed Houses, wander slowly to discover secret hallways, secret rooms and a secret bar!
