Now, more than ever, Meeting attendees are looking to make the most of their business travel. Quick trips still exist, but according to business guide author Richard Moran, including downtime in the meeting agenda will increase meeting goers’ happiness and satisfaction. True downtime, coupled with a realistic schedule, is restorative and gives attendees time to absorb the material that’s been presented.
Providing opportunities to get to know the local area with fellow attendees during downtime is a wonderful way to engage and energize meeting-goers. Lively cities are the perfect backdrop for interesting, horizon-expanding activities.
Back to Class
An enviable location at the foot of historic Beacon Hill makes Wyndham Boston Beacon Hill an ideal choice for Beantown meetings. Floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views of downtown Boston and the Charles River set the stage for productive meetings. When it’s time to take a break the best of Boston is right outside our door – from landmark sites to beautiful parks to renowned museums, perfect for exercising both mind and body. Stimulate meeting-goers’ minds even further with a unique class (Lightsaber Combat, anyone?) to get them thinking in a different way.

There’s no shortage of excursions – from shopping to shows to art and culture – to energize meeting attendees and ensure a memorable meeting.
