Pivoting Back to Travel, The Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Edition

2020 put the nuptial plans of thousands upon thousands of couples on hold, but with the promise of widespread vaccine distribution in the near future, it’s time to get back to planning and ensure your clients live out the destination weddings & honeymoons of their dreams. Hear from top suppliers and destinations on wedding venue & ceremony options, romantic destinations & resorts and more when you watch the event on-demand.

Unveiled earlier this month, the new Extreme WOW suite, redesigned by Starwood’s in-house design team, is meant provide what the team calls "a voyeuristic view of the city that never sleeps." A major design element is a deconstructed interpretation of the iconic Times Square New Year’s Eve ball, but "smashed” to pieces.

The Suite can be booked for a VIP or for small (or even not-so-small) events. Connecting rooms also make it a great pick for families. 

Some of the perks include:

  • A custom, mirrored LED light fixture that resembles a large, flattened piece of the New Year’s Eve ball
  • Light fixture with four prismatic “looks” that provide different lighting elements from day to night
  • “Peep Show” - a mural by Brooklyn-based artist Keren Richter, which depicts a Times Square in flux between its notorious past and amusement park present
  • Frosted, eye level peep-holes built into the room’s sliding doors; white metal screens which can be left open or closed to separate the bedroom from the living room; and a bathtub that is separated from the bedroom by a sheet of "honey-tinted" glass (pictured bottom)
  • A dining room table for eight (pictured top) that spins and rises hydraulically to become a bar for in-room entertaining
  • A vertical bar designed to hold both liquor bottles and glasses
  • Two plum-hued “hanging” chairs in the living room (pictured second)
  • A circular bed, which offers top views of the New York skyline or direct views of the action in the living room and bar (pictured third)
  • A built-in DJ Booth
