The city that never sleeps is meeting its tourism growth with more hotels.

Located in the heart of northern New Jersey, Perona Farms has both indoor and outdoor spaces to host events that range from 20-300 attendees.

Pennsylvania's big cities are defi nitely upping the ante with a bumper crop of new hotels (Philadelphia could warrant an entire article alone), but they aren’t the only bastions of cool.

Read on for a fresh look at some new and old(er) hip havens across the Keystone State.
Looking for a scenic setting with plenty to offer? Ski resorts offer skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, and other winter sports, of course, but many of these resorts also offer state-of-the-art banquet rooms, auditoriums and conference rooms for meetings and events.
With so many activities, these lodges are ideal for team-building, and even participants who hate the snow will likely find a spa to relax in, restaurants and bars with fine food or drinks and a cozy fireplace to unwind by.
It’s not too often that you get an entire mansion at your disposal, but when you book an event at Cairnwood Estate, the whole National Historic Landmark is yours. Built in 1895 by John Pitcairn, this Beaux Arts French chateau was just named one of the top 25 best historic homes in America by Traditional Home magazine. While the event venue, which has been open since 2001, is most often associated with weddings, this Gilded Age landmark isn’t just for brides and grooms.
FARMS HAVE LONG BEEN THE BACKBONE OF AMERICA, and there’s something both historic and patriotic about walking along land that has been owned and worked on for generation after generation. Farms are typically comprised of a barn, acres of land and the family’s private home. Many of New Jersey’s historic farms have opened up some of their space to hold meetings and events.
From strip malls and airports to even the local Walmart, spas have popped up virtually everywhere. These places cater to time-starved and stressed-out clients who just want to buy a little relaxation. In contrast to day spas that offer just an hour of peace and quiet, hotel spas promise to keep that glow lasting just a little bit longer (is there anything better than going to your room in a fluffy bathrobe?).
Downtown Manhattan, filled with industrial chic spaces and effortlessly stylish people, is the epitome of cool, but fighting traffic at the tunnels to make it to an event? Definitely not cool.

This stylish venue is tucked inside the Wilshire Grand Hotel, a full-service hotel with 89 rooms and 13 suites.
ONCE PART OF A TOWN’S steel-and-iron industry, this destination is now dedicated to offering clients a different event experience.
