Not everyone knows how, has the aptitude, or time to learn how to use online marketing tools, and nor should they have to try. Those people who need help and/or don't want an in-house marketing team work with me. Each client has different needs, goals and expectations. I do custom work for each of my clients.

115-guestroom Located In The “Really Cute” Town of Los Gatos

Toll House Hotel- Los Gatos, California www.tollhousehotel.com

This 115-guestroom property located in the “really cute” town of Los Gatos (between Silicon Valley and the Santa Cruz Mountains) offers up to 6,000 square feet of flexible meeting space. Los Gatos is cute (oh, I already said that), and is definitely convenient for a “let’s get far enough away from the office for a meeting but not too far” event.

All of the hotels are very different, some have meeting space, some not… so to sort through that just ask Jonathan Wisner at jonathan@houseofkooser.com and/or visit www.houseofkooser.com

Like its Conference Center neighbor across the street, the 105-room (all Jr. Suites) Hotel Pacific (a member of The Conference Connection) has also undergone a complete refurbishment.  The hotel offers three meeting rooms, the largest of which is 951 square feet. My handy calculator tells me that is 39 max., classroom. Max. But… it is right there, and all of the downtown Monterey stuff is right there too. www.hotelpacific.com

Four Diamond LEED Certified and 50,000 sq ft of Meeting Space - Monterey, CA

portola-plaza-hotel-spa.jpg

Portola Hotel & Spa

First thing you notice about this 379-room Four Diamond LEED certified hotel… it’s connected to the new Conference Center. So connected, it seems to be the same thing It’s not, but it is definitely has the Location thing going for it. By itself, it offers 50,000 square feet of meeting space, and groups routinely use both the Conference Center and the hotel. (Historical Note… I had a group that used both facilities in 1980. Pretty funny).

But that is far from all… it’s right next to a state historic park (let’s add 60k square feet of outdoor space), and about a two-minute walk from the Wharf and the Beach. There is also a Brewery on property, bocce ball courts, and get this… a Salvador Dali museum right next door.

There are a billion other things. Check it out at www.portolahotel.com

luxury-hotel-the-aarcher-napa-great-for-meetings

It’s been taking a while, but a new luxury, boutique hotel is coming to the heart of downtown Napa in 2017.  F&B at the 183-room, five-story property will be managed by The Charlie Palmer Group (if you are a foodie you know who that is).

Archer Napa will feature over 15,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting and event space, the largest single space with 2,540 square feet. For slightly smaller events there is a secondary event room (over 1,700 square feet) as well as two breakout rooms that are both nearly 600 square feet. 

The expansive rooftop will offer nearly 9,000 square feet prime for entertaining. With a rooftop bar, fire pits, a chef’s show kitchen along with a ledge pool, cabanas, indoor/outdoor fitness room, and spa treatment rooms, there is no other space like it in Napa. http://archerhotel.com/napa
