Peak Hospitality has announced the rebranding of Hotel Cascada, which will soon be known as Wyndham Hotel & Conference Center; the 11-acre property will also undergo a $5 million transformation.

“Since the hotel’s construction in 1972, the property has become one of Albuquerque’s most recognized landmarks even as it has gone through several identities and renovations,” says Theodore Barela, CEO, Peak Hospitality. “As New Mexico natives who have seen the transformations this hotel has gone through, we’re excited to see this property shine as the renovations progress to make it one of Albuquerque’s premier hotels and conference centers.”

The head-to-toe redesign will include the property’s 300 rooms, 30,000 square feet of meeting and event space, and an indoor water park with five pools. The lobby, fitness center and exterior will be updated.

There will be three parts to the property’s transformation. The beginning phase will work on banquet and dining areas, while later phases will include updates to the water park and property. The Peak Hospitality plans to pay homage to the property’s history and the families that worked to build the original property through the remodeling.

Event planners often schedule meetings and events in natural places near wilderness areas, at waterfront resorts, and at mountain event spaces. But there are many ways to bring nature into your events by making use of the architectural concept of biophilic design, which can be defined as seeking to engage most people’s innate desires to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. If you think of yourself as an “event architect,” you can use nature to stimulate the senses. 

 

It won’t be quite the same as ordering a pizza or nachos to be delivered to your front door but getting eats at venues is taking a leap toward convenience with a new collaboration: DoorDash has become ASM Global’s “On-Demand Delivery Platform” partner, launching at ASM Global’s top North American arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers in the coming months. The partnership will allow attendees to skip traditional lines by leveraging DoorDash services to order within the arena for pickup.

 

The latest Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Business Travel Recovery Poll revealed that business travel is surging forward and international travel is returning alongside the challenges of rising fuel prices, inflation, supply chain disruption, and the war in Ukraine. In addition, corporate travel policies are undergoing a revamp, and a large majority of employees indicate they are willing to travel for business.
