New & Renovated: Three Hot Spots

Meeting Planning

Hotel Madeline Telluride 

The ski-in, ski-out Hotel Madeline Telluride expanded services and luxury with its January renovation. New are fire pits around the entrance and HDTVs and stereo systems in the existing 11 suites, 16 condos and 84 guest rooms. The hotel has also added another 12 guest rooms to the property for a total of 123 rooms. Planners will find the new outdoor seating for the Smak Bar up to snuff, as the special awning keeps attendees and locals warm year-round.

 


The Alexander, A Dolce Hotel 

The first LEED-certified and only IACC-certified property in Indiana, The Alexander opened its doors in January to offer meeting planners 16,500 sq. ft. Of space and artistic luxury in the heart of CityWay, Indianapolis’ newest neighborhood development. Three restaurants include mixology bar Plat 99, which blends local ingredients into cocktails and is set atop the roof of the hotel, offering views of the city. Centrally located near Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis Cultural Trail and Bankers Life Fieldhouse, the hotel offers 17 meeting and conference spaces and 209 guest rooms, including 52 extended-stay suites.

 

Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace 

Rising from the ashes of the former Centurion Tower at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nobu Hotel opened in February as the luxurious, boutique wing of the resort mainstay. The $30 million, 181-room hotel is an offshoot of the popular fine-dining chain owned by Nobu Hospitality Group, operated in part by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and actor Robert De Niro. Guests of the Vegas hotel receive VIP access to all Caesars Palace hot spots, including the nightclub Pure; have access to private concierge and lobby staff; enjoy exclusive access to private space within the pool complex; and receive an in-room iPad to use during their stay. For all guests, room service includes a menu created by the famous chef himself.
