Pop-up glamping experiences also are a truly distinct option for groups.

Under Canvas, an outdoor destination hospitality experience with upscale, safari-style accommodations, is adding Under Canvas Bryce Canyon in southwest Utah to its collection of eight other locations in June 2022. Under Canvas currently operates in Yellowstone and Glacier in Montana; Moab, Zion and Lake Powell-Grand Staircase in Utah; Grand Canyon in Arizona; Mount Rushmore in South Dakota; Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee; and Acadia in Maine. 

Situated on 750 acres of secluded high mountain plains with expansive views of Mt. Dutton to the west and the Escalante Mountains to the east. Located 15 minutes from Bryce Canyon National Park, the solar-powered Under Canvas Bryce Canyon will be 7,600 feet in elevation and surround by forest and feature 50 canvas tents on elevated decks, each with a private en suite bathroom with hot shower, sink and flushing toilet. Far from rustic, tents are furnished with plush king-size beds, luxury linens, USB charging packs, bedside lanterns and a wood-burning stove. 

The new camp centers is designed around a lobby lounge tent and large outdoor patio and will feature locally infused food and beverage concepts along with fire pits and all the fixings for nightly s’mores. Complimentary camp and adventure programming is included. The inaugural season for the Bryce Canyon camp is June 2 - September 30, 2022. 

For groups, Under Canvas can build an original event venue for a corporate retreat or private event at a desired location with its pop-up glamping experiences. A front desk, housekeeping, turndown service, campfire tenders, upscale restroom and shower trailers can be part of the mix. A beauty bar, bar and lounge, meal space and lawn games also are on the menu of possibilities.

Larger communities host citywides, while mountain resorts are more about “villagewides.” Taking this concept to heart, Beaver Creek has introduced a new collaborative website to help meeting planners envision multi-venue and multi-hotel meetings and events for groups of 150 to 1,500 guests at the Colorado ski resort and to submit RFPs. 

 

The first property of the Limelight Hotel brand, Limelight Hotel Aspen has undergone a full makeover and will begin welcoming guests back at the start of the 2021/22 ski season in November 2021. Located next to Wagner Park in downtown Aspen, the upgrades include all 126 guestrooms and suites and public spaces such as the Limelight Lounge, conference room, lobby and bar. Guests and groups will notice a new arrival experience, expanded seating for dining, and relocation of the lounge’s stage area to better accommodate events.  

 

Groups and leisure travelers can now book stays and gatherings at Utah’s Pendry Park City, located in the heart of Canyons Village at Park City Mountain and set to open in winter 2021/2022. The ski-in/ski-out resort and residences is the first mountain resort for Pendry Hotels & Resorts and will provide easy access to the largest ski area in the nation with more than 7,300 acres of skiable terrain.
