    Milwaukee's Finest

Rent your space at the Kimpton Journeyman Hotel and get so much more than a place to meet. 

The Kimpton Journeyman, located in Milwaukee’s Third Ward district, has 158 guest rooms, a rooftop bar and craftsman details for groups to enjoy. The crowning finish is the selection of team-building offerings the hotel helps coordinate. Since the Third Ward is within walking distance of so many outstanding attractions, the hotel has compiled activities building off local specialties like the Milwaukee Public Market. One popular team-building activity sends teams to the market with instructions to prepare a onecourse meal, giving participants 20 minutes to shop and 40 minutes to create a dish to share. 

“Other popular nonfood activities include building bird houses with a variety of obscure materials; scavenger hunts that take teams through the Historic Third Ward neighborhoods; and decorating piñatas followed by a Mexican dinner, complete with a mariachi band,” says Mary Kruse, director of sales and marketing at the hotel.  

Located in the heart of the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, Hotel Drover, an award-winning Autograph Collection Hotel by Marriott, focuses on simple pleasures and genuine hospitality. Kick-off your boots and stay awhile with 200 rustic-luxe rooms and suites. When ready, grab a hand-crafted cocktail or cold beer and wander outside to The Backyard at Hotel Drover, an outdoor oasis, with creekside seating, outdoor games, and seasonal live music.

 

In 1927, Hilton Hotels founder Conrad Hilton said, "Abilene, Texas will be well prepared to handle large conventions and please the most fastidious visitor." Nearly 95 years later, Abilene has fulfilled this vision and is excited to welcome back the Hilton family of hotels in the heart of Downtown Abilene with a recently announced DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

Temperatures are starting to dip in Seattle, but if you want to get in one last outdoor gathering before winter, consider The Rooftop at WeWork Cap Hill. Located on the penthouse level on 11th Avenue near Seattle’s storied Pine and Pike Streets, the space offers inviting landscapes and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Capacity: 74.  Bring sweaters and scarves!
