As of early November, Anaheim Marriott is the first hotel in California to win four Stella Awards. Andy Lakefish, the hotel’s director of sales and marketing, announced that Anaheim Marriott was recognized in the following categories:

  • Gold Award - Best On-Site Tech/WiFi - Far West
  • Silver Award - Best Food & Beverage - Far West
  • Silver Award - Best Green Initiative - Far West
  • Silver Award - Best On-Site Staff - Far West

The Stella Awards honor hotels and other hospitality spaces and services that provide meeting professionals with consistent high-quality business. The awards are presented by Northstar Meetings group and selected by a panel of judges managed by Meetings & Conventions and Successful Meetings.

Anaheim Marriot’s 169,662 square feet of flexible meeting space includes 23 event rooms and 44 breakout rooms. The 25,410-square-foot Platinum Ballroom can accommodate up to 3,585 guests for a reception.

Catalina Island, consistently ranked one of the best island getaways by various media outlets, has always been a tourist destination. But in the past few years, the island's new additions of meeting facilities and other accommodations have transformed the island from a popular vacation spot to a desirable meeting destination. 

 

The Spa at the Estate Yountville recently underwent the largest renovation in the Napa Valley area, including a rebranding of the entire 22-acre property. 

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
