• Mereté Hotel Management, previously InnSight Hotel Management Group, Celebrates 25 Years in the Hospitality Industry

After 25 years in business, InnSight Hotel Management Group has changed its name to Mereté Hotel Management. The new name and logo were announced by President Richard Boyles at the annual company meeting held at the Holiday Inn Springfield.   

Every January, the company comes together for an annual leadership conference. This year’s conference included a celebration of the company’s 25-year history and was used as an opportunity to reveal the new name and logo to company associates.

The theme of this year’s conference was “Evolve.” Speakers covered topics including emotional intelligence for leaders, effective management through change, and time management. An annual awards dinner was also held to celebrate top performers in the company. 

Conference attendees also participated in a community service project with Friends of Trees in Eugene.  Mereté associates pulled weeds and laid mulch around native tree pods previously planted by Friends of Trees, and over sixty volunteer hours were logged. 

The name Mereté comes from the blending of two Greek works: Meraki and Areté. Meraki means to do something with passion, love, creativity. Areté describes the pursuit of excellence. Combining these two concepts into the word Mereté is a statement about who the company is and what it aspires to be.  

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.

 

Denver-based Stonebridge Companies has acquired the 280-room Embassy Suites by Hilton New Orleans Convention Center hotel. As the property owner and operator, the acquisition marks Stonebridge Companies’ entrance into the New Orleans market.
