Unique Destinations for Your Next Meeting

For meeting planners, finding new, unique and inspiring destinations for an upcoming event can prove difficult. Here are three Benchmark Resorts & Hotels' destinations dotted around the country, which offer unique experiences for meeting guests:


Stonewall Resort, West Virginia


Set among lush rolling hills, Stonewall Resort in Roanoke, West Virginia overlooks Stonewall Jackson Lake and offers meeting guests ample amenities including lakeside cottages, 20,000 square feet of meeting space, water sports and hiking trails, making it the ideal destination for meeting planners who want a jampacked itinerary for attendees. With swimming, fishing, kayaking, boating, golf and more, adventure is core to the resort experience. For some healthy competition, groups will delight in the “Who Dun it?” dinner experience, with teams competing to unravel clues and identify the murderer while enjoying the art of performance dinner theater.



The Wigwam, Arizona


What began as a small lodge outside Phoenix during the rise of cotton ranching in the early 1900s is now one of the country’s preeminent boutique retreats - meet The Wigwam, marrying history with current luxury and technology. This concept is carefully weaved into the property’s meetings amenities – the past enriches every guest experience starting with the charm of the historic adobe architecture. And, the present is at the forefront of the service, providing superb cuisine and an array of activities including championship golf, three pools, a 25-footwater slide and a 26,000-square-foot spa. For a group excursion to remember, meeting attendees can arrange a day trip to the remarkable Grand Canyon.

Margaritaville, Lake Conroe


Lake life perfectly blends into business at Texas’s Margaritaville Lake Resort thanks to their location overlooking Lake Conroe. Located just one-hour north of Houston, the resort is easily accessible for meeting attendees, with 72,000 square feet of meeting space and options for conducting smaller business by the side of the lake, at one of the open-air terraces or out on the spacious lawn. For groups eyeing waterfront amenities beyond the workday, the waterfront cottages are a treat. This waterfront space transports meeting attendees straight to paradise, where they will find the perfect fusion of work and relaxation.
