Rob LeVine, the general manager of Antlers at Vail, has retired from his 29-year tenure at the hotel. In his honor, they have renamed the conference center after him.

“After all the many wonderful and gratifying experiences that I've enjoyed in the hospitality industry over the years, none outweighs the incredible honor of having the Antlers meeting facility bearing my name,” says LeVine. “Very simply, I am fortunate beyond words.”

Antlers at Vail is the sole place LeVine worked at full time. He began his career there as a front desk clerk more than 38 years ago. In the late 1990s, LeVine led a renovation project that added 24 condominiums and underground parking. He converted the hotel’s fireplaces from wood-burning to gas, which encouraged the entire Valley to follow suit. His latest upgrade to the hotel earned them a platinum lodging ranking.

Magdalena King is set to be Antlers at Vail’s new general manager; she hopes to keep LeVine’s legacy alive and well.

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

So far, webcams and Zoom meetings have been an essential part of 2020. While digital options are functional placeholders for meetings, chatting with a coworker over Skype doesn’t always set up a team for success. Human connection is vital to team building, and hosting safe, small meetings is a great way to revitalize teams after months of working from home.
