If you’re looking for a meeting environment that will delight and inspire attendees, yet still provide convenience and affordability, look no further. The Paradise Coast is ready to please with a number of attractive incentives and some of the most alluring properties in the world. Three Paradise Coast resorts made Conde Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Top 100 List for Mainland U.S. Resorts – and all have meeting and conference facilities. The Ritz-Carlton, Naples came in at an impressive number 14 with its dazzling views of the Gulf of Mexico, three miles of pristine beaches, world-class restaurants and impeccable service. Followed closely at number 18 is its sister property, The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples, offering state-of-the-art meeting facilities, two championship golf courses, a relaxing spa and more. And the Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort, Golf Club & Spa is ranked by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler at number 70 in the entire U.S. mainland. The Doubletree Suites by Hilton recently picked up another “Connie,” Hilton’s top performance award, making this boutique hotel the only Doubletree in the world that has achieved more than two “Connie” awards. (They’ve been honored with seven total.) The Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club and the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades CVB have been honored with Successful Meetings 2010 Pinnacle Awards, a mark of excellence for CVBs, conference centers, hotels and resorts that have done an outstanding job servicing their meetings, incentive travel programs, trade shows and conventions. Even more enticing, these world-class properties are in a part of Florida that’s more secluded and relaxed. Known as “Florida’s Last Paradise,” the area boasts more than 30 miles of pristine beaches, recently rated #13 on the Tripadvisor.com Traveler’s Choice U.S. Best Beaches list. The area is also home to the vast untouched nature of the Everglades. From sunset beach receptions to team-building adventures in the heart of nature, attendees can enjoy one-of-a-kind experiences here. Your attendees won’t need to sacrifice convenience to enjoy the exotic setting of the Paradise Coast. Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) is located just 30 minutes from Naples and offers air service from most major carriers, including nonstop flights from 48 cities.
