Trilith Guesthouse celebrates its grand opening in Fayetteville, Georgia, bringing a first-of-its-kind boutique hotel experience to the picturesque community. A member of Marriott International’s Tribute Portfolio of independent boutique hotels, the property focuses on immersing guests in creative and collaborative mindsets.

The property stands at the main entrance of the European-inspired Town at Trilith and is adjacent to Trilith Studios, the second largest film and television studio in North America. All 193 guest rooms, including 36 apartment-style studios and one-bedroom suites, feature a custom design and tailor-made furnishings among curated art pieces and warm natural tones. Designated workspaces, artisan pantries and relaxing lounge areas make for a stay with an elevated feel.

Two dining concepts, the street-level Prologue Dining & Drinks and the fifth-floor rooftop Oliver’s Twist Bar & View, offer inventive, thoughtful fare. The property’s interactive culinary studio is an opportunity for an engaging activity blended with delicious dining. The design of all 17,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space encourage spontaneity and inspire curiosity.

An Architectural Mecca

National Historic Landmark and World Heritage Site in Arizona’s McDowell Mountains, Taliesin West, was designed and constructed by famed American architect and designer Frank Lloyd Wright over 80 years ago. Now, it debuts impressive renovations to its existing meeting and event venues, plus the addition of a sixth, outdoor venue: The Pergola.

The Pergola originally served as a central passage through the heart of Taliesin West. It is now a versatile outdoor event venue. The narrow space, bordered by the Drafting Room on one side and a bright bougainvillea hedge on the other, leads to the open Garden Squares just beyond. Whether your attendees gather around long, family-style tables or an open concept with bars and high-tops, the atmosphere is perfect for an upscale, intimate event space, with room for 100 guests.

Other event spaces include the Garden Squares, which offer an unmatched look at Wright’s distinctive architecture, plus views of the McDowell Mountains, with room for 350 guests standing and 250 seated. The adaptable Music Pavilion & Pavilion Terrace is known as an ideal space for acoustics, with a series of rearrangeable curtain backdrops, and room for 125 guests standing on stage and 108 guests in tiered theater seating. The Cabaret Theater’s low ceiling and desert masonry walls create an intimate signature atmosphere, with room for 50 guests standing and 40 seated, and The Kiva, one of the first structures built on the property, has served as dining room, film screening room, lounge and library, with room for 20 guests standing and 13 seated.

Celebrated Roots, Exciting Beginnings

Kimpton Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City wraps up an extensive four-month renovation. The hotel makes the city’s 1928 “Continental Bank” building its home. Its new design blends a clean aesthetic, reflective of modern luxury, alongside a celebration of its historical, geographic and architectural heritage.

Los Angeles-based design firm Beleco led the renovation. A neutral color palette of gray, blue, cream and white, accented by salt crystal-inspired light fixtures and décor, celebrates nearby natural landmark, the Great Salt Lake. Local artwork inspires guests to connect with the region, and rich leathers and plush textures invite relaxation. Two separate food and beverage concepts, the long-celebrated Bambara and brand new lounge area The Vault, offer alternative dining experiences, but both are united in their high-quality service and atmosphere.

The renovation extended through all 228 guest rooms. Over 3,100 sq. ft. of meeting and event space is made up of three flexible meeting rooms, of which the 2,000-square-foot Paris Ballroom can be divided into two separate spaces.
