Looking to plan a program or just get away in the Fall?

Why not head to Munich, Germany and enjoy competitive airfare and rates? We are pleased to highlight a fabulous property in the heart of the city, The Sheraton Munich Arabella Park Hotel. Conveniently located in the influential district of Bogenhausen, The Sheraton, along with its sister hotel, The Westin Grand (directly across the street), provide the largest meeting space in all of Southern Germany. Not only do we love the abundance of meeting space, the modern d├ęcor and location are very appealing. Check out a brief description below!

We are just a short stroll from Munich’s famous park, the English Garden, with its beer gardens and long walking trails. The city centre and central station are only 10 minutes away by underground train. After a full day spent with family, friends, or colleagues, relax in one of our 446 modernized and spacious guest rooms.

Looking for an exciting Group Activity?

This week we’d like to feature a delicious opportunity for a group activity at the Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort. Master Sushi Chef, Chef “Fuji” Fujita, the only sushi chef in the United States to earn the Japanese Chef’s Associations recognition in 2006-2007, will demonstrate his art and personally teach his techniques and the history of sushi. The two hour class consists of hands-on learning, tasting and a Sake Clinic. The admission price is approximately $50 per person. Students will leave with an apron, chopsticks, a sushi guide, and a discount card to eat at Marssa, the restaurant where the class is held. Groups won’t have to gamble on where to go for food and fun this summer. Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort is a destination built for recreation.
