• The Hotel at Oberlin Offers Sustainable Meetings

    POSTED March 8, 2017

One of the most eco-friendly hotels in the world, The Hotel at Oberlin in Ohio, offers sustainable meetings and environmental team building exercises. They’ve partnered with Common Ground—The Cindy Nord Center for Renewal, for team-building workshops.

Common Ground is located 30 acres in of the Vermilion River Valley near Oberlin, and offers trained guides, zip lining, two spiral staircases, three aerial bridges and 13 tree platforms. Their activities include a two-and-half-hour Canopy Tour that finishes off with an 850-foot zip line over the Vermilion River.

The 70-room hotel, which is set to receive a LEED Platinum certification, has 6,500 square feet of meeting and event space with a flexible floor plan that can accommodate up to 350 people. The Peter B. Lewis Ballroom has 3,800 square feet of space that can be divided into smaller sections. All facilities have customized lighting, dropdown LCD projectors and screens, complimentary wired and wireless Internet and fully integrated sound.

The Hotel at Oberlin is 35 miles from Cleveland and a 30-minute drive from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. For more information, visit thehotelatoberlin.com.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.


After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  


Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
