  • A photo of the Hyatt Regency Hill Country where Tri-Marq recently produced a corporate meeting.

    Hyatt Regency Hill Country San Antonio

    Overview:  This is one of the better Hill Country hotels in my opinion.  Two large ballrooms are joined by numerous breakout rooms and outdoor areas.  The biggest downside is that property is located in the Hill Country area and requires dedicated transportation to any offsite venues. Ballrooms:  There are two main ballrooms at the property.  […]

  • An aerial shot of the Meritage resort

    Meritage Resort & Spa

    Napa, CA Overview: There are not a lot of properties in Napa that can host a corporate event. The Meritage in Napa is one that works well for small or medium sized events.

    Hilton Anatole

    Dallas, TX Overview: I have heard that this is one of the busiest conference hotels in the Hilton chain, and after working here I believe it.
