Someone recently asked me what my favorite hotels are and it stumped me for a minute. I been to so many, they sometimes blend and so few stand out. I enjoy hotels that are one-of-a-kind – ones that really can’t be duplicated.
The Arizona Biltmore is one such hotel. I have stayed there only once but it left an indelible impression on me for its stunning architecture and beauty. I also love the fact that ‘White Christmas’ was written poolside by a visiting Irving Berlin.
Note: Though it’s been a while since I’ve been there, I’ve seen recent reviews that some of the rooms are ‘tired’ (which happens at all hotels eventually) so, if you go, I encourage you to request a renovated room.
I love this time of year as there are so many things to do, many of them free.
Here’s a list of some of them.
Great article about the top five things successful people do before 8 a.m.
Today marks the anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s death. That afternoon, the Boston Symphony was performing and this is what happened. I found it to be a great example of effectively handling a very difficult situation. It makes me wonder how a situation like that would be handled today.
Seaport Boston is hosting their 2nd annual Christmas in the City Toy Drive and Celebrity Holiday Tree Auction on December 3rd. The event’s proceeds will benefit Christmas in the City, an organization that provides a celebration for women and children in shelters or transitional housing across the city during the holiday.
Interesting article with ideas to consider when thinking about your event marketing strategy.
Each Friday, I plan to share with you one of my favorites. Today’s favorite is Scott Bloom, a corporate event host and emcee. He is so much fun to have as part of an awards presentation, a national sales meeting, or product launch. Maybe he’ll ‘raise the bar’ of your next event. 🙂
I’m looking forward to checking out these new venues in Boston – some of them look very promising!
I was inspired by this video…a great example of innovation and perhaps one you might consider showing at your next sales meeting (with permission, of course).
