    New Hotel Opens in Belltown Neighborhood

Located in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood, a half-mile from Pike Place Market and the Space Needle and 1 mile from the Washington State Convention Center, The Sound Hotel Seattle Belltown opened for business earlier this year. The hotel is the first Tapestry Collection by Hilton on the West Coast and offers 142 rooms and a 770-square-foot board/training room with room for up to 35 guests. The ground-level restaurant, Currant Bistro, features a menu of shareable plates developed by chef Jon Langley (formerly of Thackeray, Purple Café, and The Commons) and his culinary team. Some of the hotel’s rooms and all of its seventh-floor meeting and special event space offer unobstructed views of the Space Needle. A select number of guest rooms face a mural commissioned by local graffiti artist Weirdocult.

The time is right; the stage is set. Groups are ready to meet face to face again, and the four-star luxury hotel MGM Grand Detroit is ready to welcome you back.

According to MPI’s report “Spring 2021 Meetings Outlook,” three-quarters of meeting professionals predict a face-to-face event this calendar year. And that definitely rings true for Lisa Williams, executive director of sales for the hotel.

 

Despite an overall crushing year for the hospitality industry in Pennsylvania, some seeds of hope have been planted and are finally sprouting in the form of new hotel openings. These new properties on the horizon have ample meeting and event space up for grabs, all within close proximity of each other. As capacities allowances increase, check out the new real estate for meetings and events at the following hotels.

 

Making the most of Minnesota’s ideal (and ever-fleeting) outdoor event season is a time-honored tradition, but outdoor venues hold a whole new appeal in a post-pandemic landscape. 
Plein air events can offer planners plenty of space to safely distance their guests as well as peace of mind to attendees still wary of in-person gatherings—as well as some much-needed screen-free interaction.
