Crowne Plaza HY36 Midtown Manhattan
Cozying up to the vast Hudson Yards development, the Crowne Plaza brand has officially opened its new flagship property. It’s a design-centric urban oasis that offers two meeting rooms (1,290 sq. ft.) and a communal work space. The 251 guest rooms each boast an expansive work desk, floor-to-ceiling windows and bathrooms with a spa-like shower and subway tile.
The Hotel Salem, Massachusetts
Housed in the historic Newmark’s Department Store building on the city’s pedestrian mall, this 44-room boutique property features midcentury furnishings and funky details from stores in the ’50s and ’60s, such as vintage cameras and wall-hangings depicting items that might have been sold at one of the long-gone retail emporiums of the era. Meeting space is available.
AC Hotel San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point, South San Francisco
Overlooking San Francisco Bay on the Oyster Point biomedical campus, this brand-new, 187-room property is the first new hotel to open in South San Francisco in 15 years. It features five meeting rooms, totaling more than 8,000 sq. ft. of flexible space; on-site catering is on tap, as well. In need of a spot for a quick meeting? The hotel offers a media salon rentable by the hour.
Scottsdale Plaza Resort
Situated on 40 acres of lushly landscaped grounds and with more than 40,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, this venerable Arizona resort has just completed a three-year refresh that touched its guest rooms and suites, ballrooms and common spaces. What remains the same is the elegant, Spanish-inspired architecture and looming Camelback Mountain as the backdrop.
