Bonnie, along with her husband, Dick Vandervert, opened their first hotel in 1987. They hired a management company for the Quality Inn Oakwood, but soon realized they wanted things run differently. Bonnie took over as management for the hotel sparking expectations for outstanding service and quality accommodations and at her future properties.
Bonnie has been instrumental in the design and construction of the company’s five other hotels. Hampton Inn Spokane Airport opened in 1992. Four years later ground broke on two more Hampton Inns in Richland, WA and Kalispell, MT. Hilton Garden Inn Spokane Airport (est. 2002) and Homewood Suites Richland (est. 2015) round out the Vandervert portfolio.
