The Reach Key West, Florida
Recently rebranded under Hilton Curio Collection, the 150-room resort is a tropical oasis for events with flair, featuring 4,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor space, including a gazebo propped over the ocean.

Hotel Distil, Louisville, Kentucky
Located on historic Whiskey Row, this Marriott Autograph Collection property has 205 guest rooms and 11,000 sq. ft. of event space, ranging from a 2,000-square-foot heated terrace to a 5,000-square-foot divisional ballroom. Celebrating the locale’s spirit-infused history and the building’s birth as a barrel house, the design is halogen-toned, with dark woods and cask-inspired metals. The style extends to Repeal, an oak-fired steakhouse specializing in local cuts of Wagyu beef and—of course—an extensive menu of bourbons.
Moxy East Village, NYC

A sequestered or lounge-style boardroom hosts official sit-downs, while cavernous Cathedrale restaurant and historically inspired Little Sister underground lounge can fuel gatherings of any inspiration.
