• 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.

The Austin Marriott Downtown is raising a glass to the completion of its structural framework, literally. Instead of raising the “final beam,” the hotel held a “topping-off” event where guests watched a large crane raise three Garrison Brothers bourbon barrels onto the hotel’s rooftop, in collaboration with local spirit masters Garrison Brothers Distillery.


Tampa Marriott Water Street revealed its multi-phase renovation, including extensive enhancements to the 727 guest rooms, more than 40,000 square feet of meeting spaces, the lobby, and two new and original restaurant concepts by chef and restaurateur Richard Sandoval.
