Marriott IndyPlace is changing the way meetings are coordinated in Indianapolis. It offers a network of five connected hotels in the heart of the downtown district, including the JW Marriott Indianapolis, Indianapolis Marriott Downtown, Courtyard by Marriott, SpringHill Suites and Fairfield Inn & Suites Indianapolis Downtown. Together, they present a total of 2,276 guest rooms (blocks of 10 or more can be booked with just one point of contact) and a promise to provide seamless execution.

Planners can also make use of the five hotels’ collective 154,000 square feet of meeting space, as well as multiple bars and on-site restaurants that can provide memorable events in one of the Midwest’s top rated cities. As one example, Marriott IndyPlace Director of Sales and Marketing Anne Dunlavy remembers hosting a tech group that had over 3,000 attendees, recalling how the team pulled together an unforgettable experience by working with partners to come up with creative after-hours entertainment. That included using neighboring Victory Field so guests could walk across the street to watch the band The Fray perform live. 

Sheraton Dallas Hotel has introduced a new outdoor event space under its new event programming, Dare to Outdoors. The hotel’s catering team has partnered with Pacific Plaza Park, a 3.7-acre green space in Downtown Dallas. The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.

 

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.
