Airport officials propose hotel development next to MFR

MEDFORD, Ore. — The Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport ended 2018 on a historic note, with over one million passengers passing through its gates in the calendar year.

Now airport officials are looking to the future and considering offering a long-term lease for a new hotel, cafe and other businesses.

The project would be built on the nine acres of land adjacent from the airport terminal. The airport says it would be a boost for them and the city of Medford.

The airport is accepting written proposals from qualified developers to construct a mid to upscale hotel with 100-125 rooms that could be fitted with a cafe, lobby bar, and other amenities.

“We just think it’s a good business venture and a good use of that property,” Jerry Brienza, airport director said. “It’s about a four to five-minute walk from the main terminal and we got a very nice complementary hotel right next to it that they can feed off of each other.
