Meetings + Events

Hotel Royal Oak is an ideal destination for groups. The Mid-Century-Modern-1950s-hotel-turned boutique hotel is a novel and fun location–the opposite of a bland meeting room requiring extensive decor. Open air and social distancing is easy with the hotel layout. As a bonus, the outdoor pavilion is a casual gathering place. Guests gather around the fire pit, relax in hammocks, play lawn games, and mix and mingle with ease.
