Forget the stuffy corporate hotels where you may have hosted your last event. The Old St. Francis School is anything but stuffy. This former 1936 elementary school offers plenty of event spaces (including complimentary WiFi), we have comfortable guestrooms with ensuite bathrooms and TVs, a restaurant and several small bars, an onsite theater for large presentations, a brewery and soaking pool for relaxing after your event and more.

The Old St. Francis School is located just 10 minutes from the Bend Municipal Airport, and is situated in the middle of downtown Bend. There is plenty of skiing, hiking, golfing and more outdoor pursuits throughout the region to keep your meeting or event attendees occupied when not getting down to business.

Planning the event was a great experience.  Fr. Luke’s Room was a great location for our event.  Large enough for our entire group and did not feel stuffy. Our attendees had great fun checking out the rest of the building…the soaking pool, all the photos on the wall, the Cigar Bar and Fireside Pub. The servers we had did an exceptional job – they were friendly and fun. If we have the chance to do it again, we’ll be calling McMenamins for sure!
