    Get Me to the Church On Time

Host your next corporate event in the country’s oldest Byzantine-style church, restored and reintroduced as The Sanctuary. Located on Fifth Avenue in Seattle’s Midtown neighborhood, the 1907 building is connected to The Mark office tower and Hotel Audrey. It’s an architectural gem, following the beauxarts classical principles and borrowing elements of the early Roman, Byzantine and Renaissance periods.

The Sanctuary offers three levels of event space, with gorgeous detailing, including the original stained glass windows. The Blaine ballroom (which was originally used as the chapel) and balconies can host receptions for up to 760 guests and banquets for 420. It features a 65-foot dome with special lighting, a stage and a projection screen that can be lowered for video presentations. Overlooking the ballroom is the Halo Bar. With space for up to 200 guests, it is the only balcony bar in Seattle.

On the lower floor is the Denny Ballroom with room for 300 guests. The flexible space can also be divided into two rooms. Its entrance includes a modern version of the classic grand staircase.

The Sanctuary’s three state-of-the-art culinary kitchens are overseen by award-winning chef Gavin Stephenson. The building has been garnering accolades across the country and was nominated for NAIOP’s Best Hospitality Venue for 2018.

Temperatures are starting to dip in Seattle, but if you want to get in one last outdoor gathering before winter, consider The Rooftop at WeWork Cap Hill. Located on the penthouse level on 11th Avenue near Seattle’s storied Pine and Pike Streets, the space offers inviting landscapes and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Capacity: 74.  Bring sweaters and scarves!

 

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.
