Z Resort’s luxury Hotel ZaZa Austin is now open in the Warehouse District of downtown Austin. Texas charm fuses with the city’s urban essence throughout the new property’s 8,500 square feet of meeting and event space, three beverage and dining concepts, 159 guest rooms, full-service spa and rooftop pool.

Hotel ZaZa Austin, designed by Texas-based interior design firm Design Duncan Miller Ullman, includes King and Double King rooms as well as the brand’s signature Magnificent Seven Suites and four Concept Suites each characterized by its own theme. Guests can choose the retro Palm Springs-inspired Bungalow 6 Suite incorporating intricate patterns and mod furniture, or maybe even the rock ‘n’ roll themed Back Stage Pass King Suite draped with animal prints, leather, velvet and array of striking furnishings and art. Available in each room is Hotel ZaZa’s renowned candle-lit turndown with melatonin, water and chocolate truffles.

Leading the food and beverage concepts are Jacob Weaver, corporate director of food and beverage; Daniel Hatcher, chef de cuisine; and David Esquibel, director of outlet operations.

One of three culinary concepts is Perfect Strangers, located on ground level with leather booths, marble mosaic flooring and outdoor seating. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, guests are able to enjoy handcrafted cocktails, light fare and other contemporary entrees daily.

Located on the seventh floor overlooking Republic Square, Group Therapy is Hotel ZaZa’s craft cocktail bar adjacent to the pool deck and poolside Cabana Bar. Cocktails pair well with the seventh floor’s live music venue, “Stage Fright”.

Accommodating groups of 24 to 295, Hotel ZaZa offers six unique spaces for meetings and events. The Gold Standard Ballroom, Toasts & Tributes Ballroom and Don’t Mess with Texas are the property’s other recommended venues. Natural lighting, high ceilings, exposed brick, ornate chandeliers and large windows beautifully provide sophisticated space.

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.
