The Whitney Peak Hotel is ringing in their incredibly successful first two years of operation with a newly-completed renovation. In order to meet the growing demand for meeting space in a non-smoking, non-gaming environment the Whitney Peak Hotel’s renovation has more than doubled the hotel’s meeting capacity.

“In the two years since we have opened, we have welcomed more than 100,000 guests to our unique property,” said Niki Gross, managing director. “With our expansion last year – doubling the number of guest rooms to 310 – we can better accommodate larger groups. Now we have the expansive meeting space to match, and we look forward to delivering a one-of-a-kind, world-class event experience for both visitors and the local community.”

Miles Construction, the general contractor for the hotel’s renovation project, has been their contractor on all phases of the hotel’s development.

“This project has been a fulfilling one for us at Miles because we are helping to change the face of downtown Reno,” Cary Richardson, vice president of business operations for Miles Construction said. “With these renovations completed, it really makes the hotel a premier location for events and meetings in Reno, which we hope will attract new business and help build the overall economy of our region.”

The project, which encompasses the entire third floor, has resulted in nearly 12,000 square feet of new event and meeting space. Ten air walls allow the space to be subdivided up to eight separate areas, room sizes vary from 350 square feet to a ballroom just under 5,000 square feet. Making it adaptable for a range of meetings and events.

The meeting space has a lighting control system run from touch-screen key pads, the first of its kind in Northern Nevada. Each key pad has the ability to control the entire space when the doors are open, or each room individually when sectioned off. The space also features custom-printed distressed brick wallpaper, crystal chandeliers, lighting fixtures utilizing Edison light bulbs, and a one-piece, Cypress tree coss-section that is now the check-in desk countertop.

The hotel’s expansion was unveiled in conjunction with their second anniversary celebration in July. This new space, and Whitney Peak’s unique amenities, have elevated its profile and helped it maintain strong occupancy numbers.

SCS Global Services (SCS), a third-party environmental and sustainability certification, auditing, testing, and standards development, has launched its Zero Waste Standard, “Zero Waste for Events.”

 

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.
