Hotel Chaco, a modern luxury hotel inspired by the ancient civilization of Chaco Canyon, is set to open in Old Town Albuquerque in April, 2017. The property, which was designed by Heritage Hotels & Resorts, broke ground in August 2016 and the exterior is slated for completion this month.

Hotel Chaco will be located next to its sister property, Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town; two hotels will share a pool, ballrooms and wedding chapel. Chef Mark Miller will create the concept for the hotel’s rooftop restaurant, Level 5. Interior designer Kris Lajeskie has commissioned contemporary Native American artists to create works for the hotel.

“We’re creating a hotel where guests will experience the true culture of New Mexico in a way that has never been done before,” says Jim Long, CEO, Heritage Hotels & Resorts. “We are blending ancient building techniques from New Mexico Native Americans with modern amenities and designs from the best designers in the world to create a new hotel that will redefine and advance the architectural building style in our state. “

IACC, a global meetings association, recently announced it will create its first-ever experiential showcase of its Meeting Room of the Future research at MPI World Education Congress (WEC). The installation will allow attendees to explore how meetings and conferences are evolving and will focus on three different areas: visioneering, solve and show me.

 

Over a period of 13 years, Colorado Meetings + Events has hosted two “Best of” award celebrations at the Denver Art Museum (DAM). So it was fun to get back to the museum in January 2019 to hear about and see DAM’s $150 revitalization project underway and experience an exhibition that I’ve been hearing so much about.

 

U.S. News & World Report recently released its “Best Hotels” list for 2019 and 22 of BENCHMARK’s hotels and resorts were named to the list.

Highlighted honors includ three silver badge winners that placed in the top 30 percent of all ranked luxury hotels within a destination. They include Villas of Grand Cypress in Orlando, Benchmark’s newest hotel, La Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio, and Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort in Curacao.
