The 36-room Atticus Hotel in McMinnville, Oregon, opened for business this past spring. The hotel features an on-site restaurant and bar, private dining in the Atticus Hotel Drawing Room, a boardroom for meetings of up to 16 people, a business center and a fitness room. Additional amenities include Dutch-style bicycles, electric-car charging stations, rooms with fireplaces and original artwork from local artists.  

In 1927, Hilton Hotels’ founder Conrad Hilton said, "Abilene, Texas, will be well prepared to handle large conventions and please the most fastidious visitor." Nearly 95 years later, Abilene has fulfilled this vision and is excited to welcome back the Hilton family of hotels in the heart of downtown Abilene with a recently announced DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

Since the onset of the pandemic, event planners and venues have been finding ways to perfect the art of meeting outdoors.  From enhanced technology that allows an entire function to take place in nature to open air teambuilding activities, I’ve seen so much creativity in the planning process. A natural backdrop can be both inspiring and calming, helping attendees to make meaningful and lasting connections with their peers, while offering fresh air for a safe meeting environment.
