The new Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriot in Ocean City, Md., held its official ribbon cutting and opening ceremony. The ceremony was attended by Governor Larry Hogan and several other notable personalities, and signifies an exciting time for the prominent beach town.

“The Fairfield Inn & Suites offers visitors the perfect home base with access to all the wonderful attractions Ocean City has to offer,” says Alina Kellar, general manager. “Our goal is to provide our guests with the best service and allow them to create memorable moments here in Ocean City.”

The hotel is situated on the bay of Ocean City and offers stunning sunset views. Guests of the 108-room property will find plenty to do. The hotel is within walking distance of beaches, restaurants and entertainment venues like the Roland E. Powell Convention Center. The hotel features local character in its nautical décor and offers kitchenettes, flat-screen TVs, private balconies, complimentary breakfast, and an indoor pool and fitness center.

“The level of support for this project shows how Maryland’s “We’re open for Business” initiative is alive and working here on the eastern shore as well as throughout the state,” says Ben Seidel, president and chief executive of Real Hospitality Group. “This new property is a terrific addition to the already thriving community here in Ocean City. We are so pleased to contribute to this one-of-a-kind destination and are excited to provide visitors a place to stay while they experience everything the Maryland shoreline has to offer.”

With summer weather year round, Carmel Valley Ranch is taking full advantage by cultivating a summer camp style environment that’s perfect for everything from corporate meetings to spectacular outdoor weddings.  

Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains on California’s Central Coast, Carmel Valley Ranch occupies 500 acres. Amongst all of this, they offer nearly 10,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, as well as 30,000 square feet of outdoor space.  

 

Lovebirds looking to tie the knot can now experience the pompous features of celebrity Hollywood weddings at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. 

The 7,000 square feet of event space will now include wedding add-ons. Options include exiting in a horse-drawn carriage (inspired by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle), a burger bar with the couple's initials toasted into the bun (Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook), and a massive flower wall that will prove to be the “most Instagrammable” backdrop (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West). 

 

For the first time, all five boroughs of New York City are lighting up rainbow in celebration of WorldPride's first time being hosted in the United States. Additionally, NYC & Company and LGBT MPA are partnering to offer a MICE familiarization trip for LGBTQ+ meeting and event planners.
