MEETING PACKAGE: Dolce Offers 'Inspirational' Deal for Planners

Dolce Hotels and Resorts has announced a series of incentives for meeting planners who book meetings at any of its North American properties in 2009. The incentives, it says, are designed to give groups an inspirational meeting venue at a fiscally conservative price.

"Dolce Hotels and Resorts is dedicated to creating the most inspiring yet practical and financially responsible environments for people to meet," the company said in an announcement. "Now more than ever, Dolce is the place to go to step out of your usual routine and get inspired, whether for your 2009 planning session, to develop a response to the latest market dynamics or to train your team for success in the future."

When planners book a meeting by Dec. 30, 2008, they'll receive two of the following incentives:

• A private wine and cheese reception
• A $500 gift card
• An attendee welcome gift, received in room or upon check in
