Santa Rosa welcomes new Hotel E, an upscale boutique property in the heart of downtown featuring 39 guest rooms, a lobby wine bar, and an abundance of unique meeting spaces. 

Hotel E's Empire Room offers 18-foot coffered ceilings, large arched windows to welcome natural light, state-of-the-art AV equipment, wireless internet capabilities and can accommodate small groups of five, board meetings up to 25, and 40 for a seated dinner. "Ideally, we see this space being used for retreats, board meetings, and strategy meetings, as well as small intimate wedding receptions," says Debi Dobley, director of sales.

Located just steps from Santa Rosa's restaurants and shops and 15-30 minutes from local winers, the Russian River and the Sonoma Coast, Hotel E is centrally located for groups to explore the city.

"When it comes to team-building, we have so many options—how about a wine blending competition or a scavenger hunt around Old Courthouse Square? We have partnered with local companies to help facilitate these types of experiences," Dobley says.

Dobley says they pride themselves on ensuring that their guests experience exceptional service, meaning meeting planners can rest assured their attendees will be taken care of.

"We have transformed the historic Empire Building into a unique, boutique hotel. Our small, sophisticated space—along with our history—is like nothing else in the area. That, coupled with exceptional service, makes for a memorable experience, and our downtown address puts our guests in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country," she adds.

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.   

 

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.
