The 254-room Lodge at Suncadia Resort, A Destination Hotel, located on 6,400 acres in Cle Elum, turns 10 this year. The resort features more than 20,000 square feet of conference space that was recently refreshed with new paint, carpet and furnishings. Grand and junior ballrooms, multiple banquet spaces, a boardroom and breakout rooms are among the renovated spaces. 

In addition, the resort introduced a new outdoor aquatic center, the Nelson Farm Pool, featuring three separate bodies of water totaling close to 6,500 square feet, sand volleyball courts and a new seasonal restaurant, Nellie’s at the Nelson Farm, with a 2,100-square-foot indoor/outdoor dining  space and bar. The aquatic center design is consistent with the surrounding meadows and historic Nelson Dairy Farm farmhouse, barn, cabin and stables that were erected  in the late 1890s and can be used for events and weddings. 

This summer, Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite is debuting $25 million in expansions. The new Explorer Cabins at Tenaya Lodge features a central gathering building, communal outdoor fire pits and more than 50 two-bedroom cabins. Also, the lodge recently introduced new Glacier Point at Sunset Tours that run from May through September and combine the expert knowledge of a local guide with the beauty of Yosemite National Park. Groups can enjoy wine, cheese and crackers or their own picnic dinner while enjoying the alpenglow.

Twenty-two one-bedroom casitas have been added along with Mission Gardens, a prime location for outdoor events.

 

The Josie Hotel, a ski-in/ski-out boutique property in Rossland, British Columbia, opened its doors in November at the base of RED Mountain Resort’s slopes.

Key amenities include more than 1,500 square feet of function space, a spa (opening winter 2019) and fitness center, and The Velvet Restaurant & Lounge.
