The boutique Casa Palmero at Pebble Beach Resorts recently completed a refresh to its 24 guest accommodations, just in time for Pebble Beach Resorts’ 2019 centennial celebration. Highlights of the award-winning design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) include interior and technology upgrades to preserve the distinct style of the boutique property, such as its trellised walkways, gardens, wooden doors and iron gates, and fireplaces adorning each suite. 

HBA Senior Designer Jacob Royster noted, “The interior design for Casa Palmero is built on the existing palette – earth tones complemented by rich Mediterranean colors.” Reflecting on the soft goods enhancements, he added, “Fabrics are plush and tailored with intricate stitching and patterns that are refreshed versions of traditional scroll and fretwork patterns.” 

Other improvements include new 55-inch HD TVs, which complement Casa Palmero’s original amenities such as oversized soaking tubs and outdoor patios with private hot tubs, which are offered in several rooms. 

IACC, a global meetings association, recently announced it will create its first-ever experiential showcase of its Meeting Room of the Future research at MPI World Education Congress (WEC). The installation will allow attendees to explore how meetings and conferences are evolving and will focus on three different areas: visioneering, solve and show me.

 

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.
