Hotels Serve Up Olympic-Themed Amenities

By Kelsey Ogletree, August 12, 2016

With the 2016 Olympic Games in full swing, you’re probably checking up on Team USA’s gold medal count as often as you’re checking Snapchat. Hotels around the country are smartly taking note. Whether you’re traveling on business this week and need a spot to hang, looking for last-minute event menu inspiration or simply heading out to watch gymnastics on the big screen with a cocktail in hand, we’ve got you covered. We’re giving these offerings a standing ovation.

DO

A 14-by-24-ft. poolside screen is better than your hotel room flat-screen any day, especially when it comes to watching Michael Phelps go for another gold. Get in on the action at Fontainebleau Miami Beach, whose restaurant Scarpetta will also serve up celebratory Olympics-themed tropical cocktails. As a bonus, chat with the on-site audiovisual team about the setup if you want to replicate the poolside screen for your own event.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is accepting bets around the games for the first time in 15 years at its newly renovated Race & Sports Book. If you’re in town attending a conference or doing a site visit, mosey on down to pick your favorites and get in on the interactive experience. It will give you an excuse to check out the hotel’s new offerings for meetings too.

Not content to just sit back and watch? Hilton Orlando totally gets you, which is why the hotel is hosting Olympic-themed competitions all summer long. If you’re on a site visit or checking out the city, stop by for a rousing game of basketball or tennis, or test your green skills in a putting game. You might even get some ideas to steal for your next teambuilding session.
