The Duniway Portland is launching Vinyl Record Suites to celebrate Record Store Day, an annual celebration of independently owned record stores, on April 13.

These rooms will feature U-turn audio record players with classic records, including The Duniway's Top Five Collections Cases featuring playlists from Ted Wheeler, mayor of Portland, The Duniway General Manager Ryan Kunzer, Jackrabbit's head chef Chris Cosentino and many more.

Other collections include the Abigail Scott Duniway collection, inspired by the property’s namesake change-maker, which features top female empowerment anthems from leading female artists such as Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Madonna.

All Vinyl Record Suites offer 65-inch Samsung HDTVs with user-friendly StayCast technology, king-size Waldorf Serenity beds with 500 thread-count linens, an in-room Vittoria espresso maker, a mini refrigerator and more.

Benchmark is adding Washington's Skamania Lodge to its portfolio of resorts and hotels.

 

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.
