New Gondola Transportation at Glenwood Springs Attraction

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park has introduced its newest feature, the Glenwood Gondola that replaces the Iron Mountain Tramway that opened in 2003. The gondola features 44 detachable cabins that move continuously, so the ride is faster and smoother and less susceptible to weather-related closures. The mountaintop theme park in Glenwood Springs was closed for several months during the gondola construction so the grand reopening was a kickoff for a full slate of summer events, including the attraction’s 20th anniversary celebration and 15 Music on the Mountain concerts, which run through early fall. To thank the community for its patience while the park was closed, free annual gondola passes were offered to residents from Basalt to Glenwood and from Eagle to Parachute. More than 17,000 people signed up!

Steamboat Springs Adds Homewood Suites

With 84 suites, the new Homewood Suites by Hilton Steamboat Springs brings more extended stay options to the popular hiking and skiing destination. Developed and owned by Gray Stone LLC and managed by K Partners Hospitality USA, the property offers a combination of studio, one- and two-bedroom accommodations that are handy for groups and feature fully equipped kitchens and separate living and sleeping areas. Additional amenities include a heated indoor pool, game room and fitness center.

Temperatures are starting to dip in Seattle, but if you want to get in one last outdoor gathering before winter, consider The Rooftop at WeWork Cap Hill. Located on the penthouse level on 11th Avenue near Seattle’s storied Pine and Pike Streets, the space offers inviting landscapes and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Capacity: 74.  Bring sweaters and scarves!

 

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.

 

Despite an overall crushing year for the hospitality industry in Pennsylvania, some seeds of hope have been planted and are finally sprouting in the form of new hotel openings. These new properties on the horizon have ample meeting and event space up for grabs, all within close proximity of each other.
