Benchmark Resorts & Hotels will be joining us at Admin Bash 2019 — so be sure to say hi.
Bringing Ninjas together through events like Adminglings, Admin Bash, and now OfficeNinjas Con is a big part of what we do and love at OfficeNinjas. (We’ve produced over 70 events!) But organizing these experiences is no joke — it takes a lot of strategic planning, nimble collaboration, and a respectful acceptance of those inevitable panic-inducing surprises along the way.
No doubt, you’re nodding your head right now. It’s a scenario of which Ninjas are all too familiar. Coordinating company-wide gatherings and team activities is an exercise in organized chaos. And that’s not even including what it takes to ensure these events are productive and memorable!
So, when it comes to choosing a hotel, you want a partner who understands what’s at stake — and who can help pull off an unforgettable experience.
There’s a reason our Admin Week 2019 partner and today’s Flash Raffle host Benchmark Resorts & Hotels took top honors as Best Overall Boutique & Lifestyle Hotel Brand in the 2018 Stella Awards. Providing phenomenal experiences is what they do best.
We sat down with them to get the deets on how they make corporate event planning personal and do it with flawless collaboration.
Ninjas Ask Benchmark Resorts & Hotels 5 Big Questions
What differentiates Benchmark from other hotel brands?
All of our hotels have their own unique voice, inspired by the natural setting and local landmarks. We all carry one common theme: we genuinely love to serve our guests and be true partners in our communities.
Our guests enjoy transformational experiences (like rafting down Snake River at Snow King Resort in Jackson, WY, or adventuring through the mountains at Chaminade Resort & Spa’s on-site ropes course). We truly enjoy being the liaison between our guests and the local culture, and work with you to find activities that best match the personality and needs of your team.
Where are Benchmark properties located?
Ninjas work in a variety of fields, so we provide a variety of experiences. We have unique destinations in 19 states spanning the coast to the slopes (and offering a range of resources to match)!
When you choose your venue by experience, you’re able to hone in on what really matters to your team. Would an obstacle race on the waterfront bring your group together, or would they benefit more from a night of digital golf?
How much does it cost?
While this will vary depending on the location and length of your stay, one thing everyone at Benchmark Resorts & Hotels has in common is a genuine desire to serve our guests. For example, at Chaminade Resort & Spa, we offer all-inclusive pricing.
That’s right: meals, accommodations, event space, AV, taxes, gratuities — the works. You won’t need to worry about that coffee-guzzling VP of Sales or the presentation that requires a little extra technical savvy. We’ll keep your team fueled and set up for success throughout their entire stay.
What size groups can you accommodate?
We work with groups as small as 10, and accommodate much larger groups as well. Our planning team will be here for you every step of the way to ensure your event runs smoothly, from strategy to execution.
Each of our meeting destinations offers unique programming and activities to keep your group engaged. We’ll help you lead company-wide exercises or smaller team-building competitions, explore unforgettable landmarks, or attend a skills class.
Do you offer special discounts for groups?
Yes! Just like our destinations, each location offers unique packages and ways to save on group experiences — as well as special perks to go along with them. Our hotel meeting experts are here to help you with this, too, and will work to find the best fit for your team AND your budget.
