Hood River City Council approved the Nichols Landing hotel and commercial building project Monday night and gave the green light to its own State Street improvement project, in a wide-ranging, four-and-a-half-hour meeting. “We are excited to be coming to Hood River and bringing a much-needed hotel and office building,” said Steve Naito of the Naito Corp., which will build the four-story, 45,000- square-foot, 88-room hotel, doing business as a Hampton Inn, and two-story, 20,000-square-foot commercial building in the Nichols boat basin on the Columbia River, along with a parking facility.
