Employment Reaches New High as The Allison Inn & Spa Progresses Toward September Opening NEWBERG, Ore., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Employment has reached an 18-month high on site at The Allison Inn & Spa (www.theallison.com), Oregon's first luxury wine country property. Ground was broken on the 154,841-square-feet, four-story development in November, 2007. More than 250 workers are engaged in activities such as installing Montana mossy rock stone and Prodema(TM) wood to exterior walls, finishing the first of 85 guestrooms and suites and adding the initial flights of landscaping around the 35-acre property. "We have added to our employment numbers as we get closer to the mid-September opening," said General Manager Pierre Zreik. "In June, we will begin hiring for 165 full-time positions, ranging from aestheticians for the spa, front desk personnel to groundskeepers, restaurant/bar service staff as well as kitchen and hotel maintenance." Despite a generally depressed economy, The Allison already has enjoyed a high level of interest in guestroom reservations, corporate meetings, social events and weddings. "It appears that many guests are anxious to experience the new property, the signature restaurant, full-service spa and swimming pool. Many of our guests are expected to arrive in time for wine tasting during the Willamette Valley's wine crush," Zreik noted. Zreik said current employment numbers do not include hundreds of additional "behind-the-scenes" craftsmen who are busy creating luxury goods such as window treatments, custom rugs, one-of-a-kind furnishings and decorative light fixtures. After The Allison opens, the communities in and around Newberg will benefit from thousands of guests frequenting the area to visit the 200-plus wineries. Many will be overnight guests of The Allison, prolonging their opportunity to dine, shop and enjoy nearby attractions including a major air museum, hot air ballooning, golf and several world-class gardens and nurseries. Vintners in the area are highly supportive of The Allison since it provides a needed venue for guests touring and tasting who want to spend time in the area. An important fact is that the property is located within the urban growth boundary and not on valuable vineyard land. The Allison is the only property in the state of Oregon to be a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts in the Boutique Collection.
