a few weeks ago, I had the priviledge of hosting an International Board of Directors meeting for NPA, The Worldwide Recruitment Network. We chose the Victoria Regent because of it's excellent location and it's ammenities. Typically, we choose large chain hotels around the world but for this meeting, we decided we wanted a more relaxed setting where we could do some "team building" with the board. We had the Regency Suite as well as several suites and guest rooms to accomodate our guests from Australia, USA, Canada, South Korea. All had an excellent time as they were able to enjoy the sights of Victoria when they weren't in the meeting.
Many our meals were prepared by ourselves (our choice!) and it proved to be not only economical but very well received. Instead of going to restaurants all the time, we were able to enjoy the Regency Suite for all it's worth. The huge balcony was a great "plus" for those who wanted some fresh air!
The staff at the Victoria Regent were some of the best I have ever experienced for this type of meeting. Typically, they do not cater to our type of group.. but they should!! Everything we requested ( tables being set up or taken away, extra chairs, flip charts, ice buckets, extra dishes etc etc. ) they came through. More importantly, they ANTICIPATED our needs. I am in the Executive Search business - not catering or hospitality... They "got it"!! Thanks to Earl Wilde, General Manager and his excellent team for making our meeting outstanding!
