Venues with a View

Venues with a View

Ocean view. Garden view. Mountain view. At hotels, these types of scenic rooms often come with top tier prices. But at many non-traditional meeting and event venues, a stunning background is just the norm. At many of these unique spaces, looking out the window can transport you to a whole new world and inspire fresh perspectives and participation solely from the change of scenery—after all, how can you be bored when you are looking at a postcard picture just behind the featured speaker?

Chicago’s North Shore Convention & Visitors Bureau has a number of venues offering a view of beautiful Lake Michigan from their windows, including the Ivy League-esque Northwestern University that provides a regal feel. Chicago Botanic Garden is another option that offers a green paradise with acres of lush foliage and exotic plants in addition to perfectly manicured Japanese gardens that put attendees at one with nature.

At the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs, the whole 500-acre campus is set at the foot of the Rocky Mountains with options like the Upper Lodge at Summit Village that offers incredible views from an attached patio and a rustic feel. Plus, with such a unique setting, hiking, cliff dwellings, and caves are all one-of-a-kind experiences you can add on to your event.

With a name like Vantage Views, you can also trust this Toronto venue will provide an exemplary background. Located in the heart of the downtown area, the reception hall and dining room are located on the 27th penthouse floor as well as a Conservatory Suite with views of major landmarks from double height windows.
