One of my first official duties as editor of Northwest Meetings + Events waaaaaaaaay back when was serving as a judge for the Emerald City Applause Awards.

The Independent Lodging Congress (ILC) has announced the finalists for the 2018 INDIE Awards and voting for award winners has now opened to the public. 

 

Under the management of Spire Hospitality, Embassy Suites by Hilton Seattle-North/Lynwood introduced a completely renovated property. The 240-suite Embassy Suites reveals two-room suites modernized with a sophisticated design, new facilities for guests to experience, and a redesigned meeting area for events. “This renovation has been a rewarding journey,” says Rachel Blake, general manager, Embassy Suites by Hilton Seattle-North/ Lynwood.

 

Food trucks may be mobile, but they aren’t going anywhere, since their popularity only seems to grow with each season. A New Jersey hotel is getting in on the fun! Along with over 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, Embassy Suites by Hilton in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, offers the Grain & Cane “Gastro Truck” as a fun option for a mid-meeting break or post-event dining option.
