    Take a look at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa’s cozy new villas.

After you’re done hitting the slopes at the Wisconsin wonderland this winter (see our ski story on page 22), relax in the comfort of your own private home. Grand Geneva Resort & Spa—located in southeastern Lake Geneva—recently unveiled a lineup of 29 all-season villas for business and leisure visitors, increasing the number of available guest rooms on-site to more than 600. These upscale lodging options reflect a multimillion dollar investment and offer conference guests privacy and creature comforts during their stay while not straying far from the main meeting rooms and dining venues. A convenient trolley also provides door-to-door transportation and can be scheduled with a new, userfriendly app.

Available are studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas, most with full kitchens, washer and dryer units and modern furnishings. Many also include a fireplace for warming up during the winter, and all have access to an outdoor fire pit for the more temperate times of year. Other amenities guests can enjoy include in-villa spa treatments and grocery delivery, as well as full use of the 1,300-acre property.  

Richmond, the capital of Virginia, is a city rich in history. It’s here, in 1775, that Patrick Henry famously declared “Give me liberty or give me death.” And while the extensively renovated Hilton Richmond Downtown can’t trace its roots back quite that far, it is housed in the historic former Miller & Rhoads department store, which dates back to the end of the 19th century. 

 

Every planner wants to create experiences that make meeting attendees feel they’re on top of the world. If you’re planning a meeting in northwest North Carolina, you can achieve that with a visit to Grandfather Mountain. Soaring 5,946 feet and estimated to be 300 million years old, with some rock formations dating back 1.2 billion years, the peak off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Blowing Rock, is accessible by vehicle and by a paved road.

 

Sheraton Dallas Hotel has introduced a new outdoor event space under its new event programming, Dare to Outdoors. The hotel’s catering team has partnered with Pacific Plaza Park, a 3.7-acre green space in Downtown Dallas. The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.
