special section Resorts Omni Hotels & Resorts A re-imagined resort portfolio
When meeting planners consider hotel companies that offer a variety of resorts, if Omni Hotels & Resorts isn’t top of mind, it might be time to take another look. Omni’s ever-expanding resort collection includes 45 unique properties across North America — from beach escapes to golf getaways to spa retreats — all with state-of-the-art meeting space and impeccable service. For beach meetings, the 404-room Omni
Amelia Island Plantation has thrilled guests for generations. This 1,350-acre property is currently undergoing an $85-million re- imagination that will add 155 new rooms, a multi-tiered pool complex, and a beachside restaurant and bar, plus an expanded confer- ence center with more than 70,000 square feet of function space accommodating groups of up to 1,200 guests. With panoramic views of the Santa Cata-
lina Mountains, world-class golf, and a full- service spa, Omni Tucson National Resort is a favorite with both golf enthusiasts and meeting attendees. After a recent $30-million renovation, the resort now includes 128 guest rooms and haciendas, and 10,500 square feet of versatile meeting space. When the busi- ness day is over, guests can tee off on greens that have hosted PGA tour events played by pros from Jack Nicklaus to Arnold Palmer. Set amid Pennsylvania’s scenic Cum-
berland Valley, the 216-room Omni Bedford Springs Resort has a rich history that dates back 200 years when settlers discovered natural springs on the resort’s grounds. Today, guests can combine work and play with the resort’s championship golf course, award-winning Springs Eternal Spa, and 20,000-square-foot conference center. The Omni Orlando Resort at Champions-
Gate offers everything groups need for an all-in-one destination meeting, including 767 rooms and villas, 15 acres of recreation, multiple golf courses, and state-of-the-art meeting facilities. The resort is also putting the finishing touches on 46,000 square feet of new meeting and function space. Once complete in early 2013, the resort will offer a total of 128,800 square feet of meeting space, including three ballrooms and 46 meeting rooms. Now when groups book multiple meet-
ings at any Omni resort, meeting planners can earn multiple rewards, including master- account rebates, F&B discounts, special attri- tion clauses, and more.
