With 342 acres, an 18-hole golf course, 150-slip marina and full-service spa, Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina, had more than enough to keep gorps busy. But the AAA Four Diamond property has just released an updated menu of teambuilding experiences. ““Our dedicated events team takes pride in curating unforgettable and unique group activities that showcase our beautiful location and help to ensure one-of-a-kind meeting experiences right here on the Eastern Shore,” says Cari Ruppert, Director of Sales, Marketing and Events.

The new activities options include several wellness-inspired activites, such as stand-up paddle board yoga sessions led by certified instructors on the calm waters of the Choptank River,  guided kayak excursions, bicycle tours of the nearby Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, pop-up express spa services, and 3K runs around the resort that showcase the beautiful Chesapeake scenery. 

Groups can also test their skills with indoor archery target activities, pub-style trivia sessions, and scavenger hunts. New this year, the resort has introduced an on-site escape room where attendees work together to beat the clock to solve a mystery.  

Showcasing the distinctive culinary experience of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, the resort is also providing mixology classes where groups can learn how to make the property’s signature cocktails, and a Chesapeake Master Chef activity where groups test their cooking skills in a contest utilizing local flavors and ingredients.  Additionally, the resort partners with RAR Brewing Company, a local Cambridge-based brewery, to provide group tours and tastings. 

Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay boasts 85,000 square-feet of outdoor event space, including the Regatta Pavilion, which is backdropped by views of the scenic Choptank River; the Breakwater Pavilion, located several hundred feet offshore at the end of a private dock; the Grand Fireplace Patio; the expansive Manor Lawn, adjacent to River Marsh Golf Club’s 18th hole, and two spacious ballrooms.

The Smyth Tribeca is welcoming guests again, this time as a newly independent hotel. The 100-room hotel first opened as a Thompson Hotel in 2009 and was rebranded an AKA property in 2018. Now, after being closed since March 2020, Smyth Tribeca will be run by Highgate, a real estate investment and hospitality management company.

 

With high-tech, low-touch amenities like self-check-in at airline-style kiosks and deliveries via YO2D2, the hotel’s friendly resident robot, YOTEL Boston is well positioned to welcome meetings back comfortably and safely. Now as part of its “SmartStay” safety measures, the property, which has 326 guest rooms, or “cabins” in YOTEL lingo, has introduced a second robot, Vi-YO-Let, to offer UVD-grade sanitization and disinfection throughout high-touch public spaces and selected rooms.

 

Promising “a modern stay in Amish country,” the Wyndham Lancaster Resort and Convention Center has completed the final phase of a $30-million multi-year makeover of the entire property, including its 317 guest rooms, event space, common areas and grounds.
