Graton Resort & Casino known as California’s finest resort, gaming and entertainment destination in Sonoma County’s wine country, will open publicy on Nov. 15; it has just begun accepting hotel reservations. After the $175 million renovation, the 342,000-square-foot expansion will feature 200 full-service guest rooms and a resort and spa experience on top of the $800 million casino and entertainment facility that opened in November 2013.

Highlights of the expansion include:

* A six-story hotel with 200-guestrooms and suites ranging from more than 500 square feet to 2,600 square feet

* An opulent lobby and lounge

* A luxurious 10,000-square-foot spa and adjacent fitness center

* 20,000-square feet of newly added event and convention space

* An outdoor resort-style pool area

 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
