I have decades of experience creating and producing online marketing. I left the corporate world to work independently with people who need help establishing and maintaining their online presence. 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. I get to know each person and know their voice, their style, rhythm and budget. 

I have a large skill set that covers the range of tasks for online marketing. It is both easy and cost efficient to work directly with me. I can get the whole job done.

32 luxury (and I Mean Luxury) Hotels in 20 countries

28 Boutique Hotels in the US, Canada and Europe

Some of the World's Best 375 Luxury Hotels in 75 Countries

Some of the most sought-after and glamorous locations throughout Europe and the USA

I have had the good fortune to have stayed at most of the Dorchester Collection properties (and I felt rich even though I am not). Funny story… years ago I was in Milan with family and my daughter’s then boyfriend (now husband). We stayed at the Principe de Savoia and as a result my now son-in-law decided to go to law school so he could be rich and stay at hotels like The PdeS. He did it and now makes a lot more than I do (or ever will). I am still waiting for payback. As I was saying…

The Ritz-Carlton, Phoenix, Re-Born 277 Guest Rooms, 20,000 Square Feet Of Techno-Smart Meeting Space, A Roof-Top Pool “Experience” - Phoenix, AZ

The Camby

Some of you may have known the Ritz-Carlton, Phoenix. That’s the Camby, re-born. It’s now part of the Autograph Collection, which is Marriott, which is pretty much everything. But, they are good at the branding thing, so this will be one of the “whatever they say the Autograph Collection is” hotels. We can call it luxury because… why not. 

The Camby now offers 277 guest rooms, 20,000 square feet of techno-smart meeting space, a roof-top pool “experience” and a “boutique” (probably means small) spa. And since I cannot resist de-constructing press releases, what is the difference between having a roof-top pool and a “roof-top pool experience”? Just asking).

The press release also states that the hotel design was based on Arizona’s Five C’s; cotton, cattle, citrus, climate and copper. I am sure it’s nice, and I would very much like to stay there, and I am sure they will do a fantastic job servicing groups for meetings. I have just one question and one statement. The question… who came up with the idea that Arizona has five C’s and the ones they picked are officially C’s? I mean… ok, never mind.  www.thecamby.com

 

 

77-Room Hotel Has 31,527 Sq Ft Of Meeting Space, A Luxury Collection Hotel - San Antonio, TX

St. Anthony

The first thing I want to say about the St. Anthony... it was built in 1909 and was the first fully air-conditioned hotel in the world. Now that is, by definition, cool. It also had the first auto-opening doors in Texas, and even better… you could check-in from your car in the underground garage and go straight to your room to freshen up before heading down to the lobby bar to be “seen” (because who would want to be seen all covered in dust from driving across Texas? Certainly neither you nor me).

In round numbers, the 277-room hotel has 31,527 square feet of meeting space including a truly elegant 4,721 square foot ballroom (with crystal chandeliers). And yes, since their last renovation they have all of the modern stuff you need too.

And finally (for now)… this “new” hotel has nothing to do with Art Deco, but you really didn’t care about that anyway.  www.thestanthonyhotel.com

“Elegance And Modern Luxury” On The Magnificent Mile, A Luxury Collection Hotel - Chicago, IL

The Gwen

Located in River North along the Magnificent Mile, The Gwen does that fusing of “elegance and modern luxury” thing. Located in the McGraw-Hill Building, and “adorned” (I applaud them on using the word “adorned” in their PR) with panels created in 1929, The Gwen celebrates the energy and glamour of Chicago in the Art Deco era and is themed around art and the 1930s. 

thegwenhotel-allthingsmeetings

The 300-room Gwen has 15 meeting rooms and more than 15,000 square feet of meeting space. A couple of cool features… The Terrace Rooftop with amazing skyline views overlooking the Magnificent Mile and the 16th floor, Grand Terrace Suite that can hold up to 75 guests.

OK, I admit, this next one is not really an Art Deco style hotel (and I forgive them for that), but… it definitely has it’s own historic thing going (with some deco elements mixed in).   www.thegwenchicago.com
