The JW Marriott Austin’s Burger Bar on Congress has received rave reviews since opening with the hotel in February. Locals, visitors— and even group attendees—line up at lunchtime and in the early evening for burgers, shakes and fries. The grab-and-go joint has a walk-up food truck-style window, a nod to the food trucks that occupied the space before the hotel was built. “Food trucks are a big part of Austin’s culture, and the JW Marriott Austin wanted to celebrate this aspect of our city in a unique way,” says Jay Spurr, director of sales and marketing for the JW Marriott Austin.
The time is right; the stage is set. Groups are ready to meet face to face again, and the four-star luxury hotel MGM Grand Detroit is ready to welcome you back.
According to MPI’s report “Spring 2021 Meetings Outlook,” three-quarters of meeting professionals predict a face-to-face event this calendar year. And that definitely rings true for Lisa Williams, executive director of sales for the hotel.
