Northwest Meetings & Events magazine has announced the 2013 Readers Choice Best Of Awards Winners, and voters in Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Oregon and Washington have chosen the venues, attractions and suppliers they trust most to get the job done right.
In the Best Historic Venue there was a tie between the Liberty Theater and Timberline Lodge. Runners up were The Governor Hotel and The Benson Hotel.
The theater was noted for its restoration as a performing arts center, concert hall and elegant event venue, and for being one of the best examples of what a 1920s-style theater would have looked like. In its retrofitted Italianate style, the vaudeville-motion picture theater is a palace in the Northwest.
