Charlotte Restaurant & Lounge sits on the 16th floor of Lotte Hotel Seattle, a luxury 157-room property designed by Philippe Starck that offers more than 23,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Lead bartender John Plascencia says the drink, inspired by Seattle in the spring, is “pink in color, light, fruity, floral, and beautifully balanced.” In other words, if a cocktail can be described as chic, it would certainly be Love for Lotte.

Nothing compares to the grandeur of the Pacific Northwest. There’s an abundance of beauty to enjoy: towering mountain peaks, rocky ocean shores, brooding forests, raging rivers, idyllic vineyards, fertile farmland, skyscraper-lined cities, and wide-open vistas. Perhaps like no other place on earth, the Pacific Northwest unveils dramatic vistas for participants at meetings and events of any sort.  

 

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.
