Finding a venue is one of the first decisions a meeting planner makes. Its size and location can make a big impact on meeting attendance. The Sheraton Tysons Hotel—managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts—located outside of Washington, DC, is helping planners choose by offering a package for planners booking through 2020.

“We have become extremely popular with those who plan larger-sized meetings,” says Linda Westgate, general manager of the hotel, which hosts about 50,000 square feet of meeting and event space, and features 449 guest rooms. “Our size is ideal for those larger groups that need extensive meeting space, with options for breakout rooms or ancillary banquet space, all in one place.”

Larger hotels are more difficult when it comes to getting staff attention and moving meetings around last minute.

“When a planner contracts all our space, they do so knowing they will get the personalized attention to details they need and deserve with a large event,” says Westgate.

The smaller, suburban hotel is connected to Washington D.C.’s three airports and Amtrak through the Silver Line Metrorail, which is only two blocks away. Guests have access to restaurants, shopping options and downtown D.C.

The Suburban Convention Promotion offers double meeting planner starpoints, double upgrades for VIPs, 20 percent off food and beverage pricing and 20 percent off meeting room rentals. The offer is available to groups that book at least 200 room nights, and their stay will occur prior to Dec. 31, 2020. Book by March 31, 2017 to receive the promotion!

The excitement continues to build for the all-new Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Technology Center, which will be opening at the end of the summer. 

 

In conjunction with WorldPride 2019, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants will be offering special pride amenities and events at three of its locations.

 

This summer, New York is welcoming its first sports betting bar and casino, Rivers Sportsbook Schenectady. The lounge, designed by DMAC Architecture, is approximately 1,800 square feet of comfortable chairs with charging ports, betting terminals and a gaming floor. With walls covered in high definition televsions, Rivers Sportsbook allows guests to place bets on several different games rather than just focusing on one.
