Los Angeles-based hospitality company, sbe, has opened their second property in Miami, SLS Brickell. The property is the first project that Related Group and sbe have partnered for.

“sbe is proud to unveil our first SLS Hotel & Residences with Related and look forward to the addition of sister property, SLS LUX Brickell and expanding our South Florida portfolio further together with Hyde Midtown and Hyde Beach House,” says sbe founder and CEO, Sam Nazarian. “SLS has created a new paradigm in the luxury hotel experience that resonates with a global audience. SLS Brickell epitomizes what we stand for; an uncompromising, yet modern approach to luxury, infused with playfulness, spirit, creativity and world-class cuisine and design.”

The 55-story tower features 124 hotel rooms and 450 condos alongside South Miami Avenue. Located within walking distance of downtown Miami, SLS Brickell is steps away from fine dining, shopping and entertainment. The property offers culinary options from two James Beard Award-winning chefs, 24-hour lifestyle amenities that include concierge services, valet parking, in-room dining, babysitting services, and a BMW-7 series house car that can transport guests within a three-mile radius. Additionally, they offer a fitness center, Ciel spa, a private screening and party room and The Sky Roof which features a pool with city views. Guests and residents can also access the 10,000 square feet of ballroom and business spaces.

SLS Brickell residents are entered into the SLS Resident Membership program, which earns them access to SLS South Beach, Hyde Beach, Hyde American Airlines Arena and preferred searing at all sbe Miami restaurants. Members also receive a ten percent savings on food, beverages and Ciel spa packages.

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.

 

When people gather these days, it’s like long-lost friends reuniting after years away. There’s an enthusiasm that energizes the room; attendees are truly present after months of separation courtesy of COVID-19. The Twin Cities didn’t stand dormant over the past two years, and here’s a recap of projects and openings of interest to the meetings and events industry.

Reactivating landmarks

 

Life at the lake is a dream full of gorgeous views, activities on the water, and a sense of peace you can’t quite seem to find anywhere else. But, more often than not, these perks come at the cost of a road trip, a lack of amenities, and sometimes even lousy Wi-Fi.

But in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, just 20 minutes from downtown Minneapolis, both Wayzata and Excelsior offer groups the comforts of the city as well as the lure of the lake, thanks to downtown districts located within steps of the shoreline.
