This Fall, New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood will welcome one of its tallest hotels. The 430-foot Renaissance New York Chelsea Hotel is built on the former site of the Antique Garage flea market, and while the hotel is still shiny and new, the space pays homage to the historic flea market and Chelsea’s Flower District.  

Inside the hotel boasts 7,238 square feet of meeting and event space across the Cardinal Ballroom, the 38th Floor Lounge and the Rooftop Terrace, all of which have more than 2,000 square feet of space. The ballroom and lounge each have a maximum capacity of 200 while the rooftop allows for 100 people reception style. Maximum capacities for banquets are smaller in size; however, each space is perfect for everything from conferences and corporate events to weddings and galas.  

“This project brings together the past and present of Chelsea,” says General Manager Chris Rynkar. With design details that pay tribute to the neighborhood in which it stands, the hotel feels like a secret garden nestled within the heart of NYC. Additionally, guests can experience views of landmarks like the Empire State Building and the One World Trade Center through the hotel’s expansive balcony windows and at the open-air rooftop pool.  

For guests, the hotel provides state-of-the-art amenities and is within walking distance of several tourist spots and subway lines. For event planners, the hotel provides thoughtful event planning and catering teams in addition to the hotel’s offering of Marriott Bonvoy points for event planners who use the hotel for their events.  

Kimpton Hotel Palomar Philadelphia has undergone a meeting place makeover including design changes and the addition of new group amenities. Now available are offsite wedding receptions in nearby Collins Park in the middle of Center City, Philadelphia for up to groups of 100 and on-site group sound meditation sessions. 

 

Willow by award-winning chef Charlie Palmer will heat up the culinary scene at Mirbeau Inn & Spa Rhineback when the 50-room resort opens this fall. Palmer will bring his Progressive American cooking to the chic Hudson Valley location. As a veteran in the hospitality industry, Palmer will also oversee all food and beverage operations at the Mirbeau Inn & Spa Rhinebeck, including the property’s in-room dining and catering programs, Aqua Terrace light fare and Willow Bar.

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
