Members had an opportunity to check out a near completely renovated hotel as the Quality Inn Bloomsburg hosted September’s Business After Hours following a ribbon cutting to celebrate the completion of the yearlong renovations. The owner, management and staff of the Quality Inn were all on hand for the ribbon cutting, and then were able to greet several members that came to the After Hours to enjoy some tasty food from next door neighbor Quaker Steak & Lube, along with beer, wine and other beverages over a late summer afternoon. The event, held on Sept. 19, was likely the last quieter day for the Quality Inn before the Bloomsburg Fair got underway, as the hotel will be a busy hub of activity for the final week of the month as one of the closest area hotels to the fairgrounds.

The event was held in the main lobby and breakfast area of the hotel, which was completely redone to give a fresh and modern new look. Attendees were also able to take a tour and see the new exercise room and the newly remodeled guest rooms, which now feature all new bathrooms, carpets, beds and wallpaper. The renovations helped enable to hotel to be rebranded as a Quality Inn, a step up in hotel classification from Econo Lodge, the previous Choice Hotels brand that the hotel was branded as prior to the renovations.

Business After Hours provide regular opportunities to build business relationships while learning about the services offered by other Chamber members. The next Business After Hours will be held at Geisinger Bloomsburg Hospital on Wednesday, Oct. 10, from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
