Wherever your next work function takes place, there are a few things you know you require; warm and friendly service, a comfortable yet inspired space, food that’s authentic to the place, and a feeling of camaraderie with the folks you’ll be planning your event with. While many hotel restaurants often have the reputation of being too stuffy or manufactured, there’s one family-owned hotel group that prides themselves on their approachable, culture-centric dining spaces. Loews Hotels have locations in cities across the States, from San Diego to New Orleans to New York, and a few additional spots in Montreal and Toronto too. So, all your team gatherings are fair game with this attentive crew. Come along as we explore their oyster and seafood bar in Seattle, Bourbon house in Philly, and so many more spaces you’ll be excited to dine at with your work squad.
