• Kempinski Hotels offer ‘Inspiring Events’ deal for groups

    POSTED July 11, 2019

Because of its success, Kempinski Hotels, Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group, is again offering ‘Inspiring Events.’ Included are increased commission levels and the possibility of up to two complimentary rooms during the booked event. This deal is valid when a second event is confirmed within 90 days.  

“Taking care of the event planner is crucial,” says Sullivan Sananikone, director of sales & marketing. “That is why we are positioning the journey of the meeting planner at the heart of our Kempinski Meetings & Events offer.” 

Valuable upgrades are possible for planners. The Kempinski Discovery Platinum tier is offered for planners who spend a minimum of EUR 15,000 per event, and the Kempinski Discovery Black tier is for planners spending a minimum of EUR 30,000 per event. These exclusive rewards come with an on-site butler, one complimentary room for every 30 paid (up to a maximum of four complimentary rooms per group), a locally themed culinary experience, and a credit for any event contracted 60 days prior to the starting date. 

“At some of our operated hotels, meetings and events are representing 25% to 30% of the revenue and we strongly believe we can increase our share,” Sanaanikone says. “Kempinski hopes to become the standard in luxury hospitality when it comes to organizing an upscale event.” 

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.
