THE WOW ISSUE
INTRO: Historic Elegance
WOW FACTOR: Crystal Ballroom
DESCRIPTION: In the historic Crystal
Ballroom at Mobile, Alabama's Battle House
Hotel & Spa, meeting planners and attendees
are transformed into royalty as they descend
an iconic stairway. The Battle House has
been hosting Mobile's top social events since
1852. Neo-Classical in design, the Crystal
Ballroom has been restored to vintage colors
circa 1908. The ornate work around the
crown molding was a common architectural
feature and has been painstakingly
restored to its former grandeur. The hotel's
restoration offers an exceptional WOW!
factor for meeting attendees, historians and
others seeking exceptional Southern charm.
A new Lazy River with waterslides
debuted in November 2016 at
the AAA Four Diamond Hyatt
Regency Coconut Point Resort
& Spa in Bonita Springs, Florida.
Offering 85,000 square feet of event
space, the new venue follows a $4.1
million renovation to the resort's
indoor meeting space in 2016.
Meeting planners can now use
charming courtyards with fountains,
dramatic open spaces with towering
palm trees or lakeside grassy lawns
for outdoor venues as well as 37,600
square feet of indoor event space.
Three acres of poolscape, including
a serene adults-only pool and hot
tub, and a 19,000-square-foot
Stillwater Spa are also part of the
