The Abbey Resort in Fontana, Wis., has recently completed renovations that improved their 334 guest rooms, upgraded their outdoor hot tub, and added waterslides to their kids' pool and new features to the toddler-friendly splash pad. The resort is situated on the shores of Geneva Lake, which inspires the nautical theme of their guest rooms.  With plush new bedding, carpeting, paint and sofa sleepers, guests will appreciate the comfort of Abbey Resort's updated spaces.

“As one of the most reputable resorts in the area, we know our loyal patrons expect us to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to renovations,” says Sara Schmitz, marketing director for the property. “We strive for excellence in hospitality in all we do, and we are confident our guests this summer will be pleased with the crisp, clean feel of our refreshed guest rooms, and they will enjoy the updates to our outdoor pool areas.”

The renovations that took place over the last year are part of a four-year program aimed at updating the facilities at Abbey Resort. They have touched nearly every part of the property, including two bars and a coffee shop, lounge areas, the 35,000-square-foot Avani Spa, the iconic A-frame that makes up the exterior of the building, the entryway and lobby, and meeting and banquet facilities.

“Over the past four years, we have put a great deal of effort into elevating the guest experience through the completion of major property renovations,” says Schmitz. “We are delighted to show this commitment to excellence across the board at The Abbey Resort.”

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.  

 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
